Reptilian Remains from the Karroo Beds of East Africa

By Haughton, Sidney Henry

(London: Longmans, 1924). Signed "With the author's compliments" to upper cover. Offprint from the 'Quarterly Journal of the Geological Society' (vol. lxxx, pt. 1, pp. 1-11 & pls. i-ii.). 218 x 141 mm; printed pink stitched wrappers; pp. 11 + (i); plates. Slight damp-stain to fore-edge of plates; a little spotting. Very good condition. "The fossil remains described and discussed in this paper were taken from about the middle of the Karroo Beds near Tanga, on the coast of the Tanganyika Territory, by Mr. F. P. Mennell, F.G.S., who was good enough to forward the specimens to me for examination. ... It is not necessary to dwell on the importance of Mr. Mennell's discovery. From extra-South African areas very few of its animals have been found within the boundaries of Gondwanaland; that some of them were spread outside its confines is well-known; but hitherto there has been a big geographical gap between the South African localities yielding Gondwana fauna and those of Europe. This discovery marks the first step in the bridging of that gap ... " .

A Bibliography of the Fossil Mammals of Africa, 1950-1972

By Cross, Margaret W., and Vincent J. Maglio

(Princeton: Department of Geological and Geophysical Sciences, Princeton University, 1975). Authors' presentation inscription to fellow-paleontologist Brett Hendey on half-title, expressing thanks for his help. 214 x 138 mm; printed wrappers; pp. (ii) + 291. Discreet hand-stamp of Q. B. Hendey to upper cover; wrappers slightly creased, and sunned on spine; top fore-corner a bit bumped. Very good condition. "In 1954 an annotated bibliography of the fossil mammals of Africa was published by A. Tindell Hopwood and J. P. Hollyfield. That work listed references published during the two centuries between 1742 and 1950, which totalled just over 1,000 in number. Since 1950, interest in African paleontology has virtually exploded, so that in the intervening two decades more than 2300 additional publications have appeared. This enormous volume of material, published in a large number of different journals throughout the world, is making it increasingly difficult for researchers to avail themselves of the wealth of knowledge being uncovered in Africa. The present bibliography is an attempt to extend Hopwood and Hollyfield's list up through 1972." .
