Vol. 1 with 916 pp., Vol. 2 with 1074 pp. While a prolific paleontologist in his own right, Hay took it upon himself to compile an exhaustive catalog of North American vertebrate fossils, often reassigning specimens to other genera, neglecting type specimens or lack thereof, designating lectotypes, etc.. which had the end result of causing 100 years of chaos, which still continues as the current generation of researchers works through the mess he created. Hence, this volume is a must have primary reference for the fossil vertebrate researcher and enthusiast.
