Gleeson's Ceratosaurus is worth the trip alone; as the Paper Dinosaurs site says, "The drawing has seldom been reproduced in modern secondary literature, but it has a charm and a liveliness that was quite unusual for the period, even by Knight standards."
It bears a bit of a debt to Knight's famous Allosaurus, which is is posed like the mount featured early in the book in an uncredited photograph.
Also featured is this Archaeopteryx by W.P. Pycraft.
Two of my favorite images are the following scale representations, using a pair of mustachioed gentlemen as the models. If I ever do skeletal restorations, I think I'll opt for a fellow like this, just to stand out a bit from the Pioneer dorks that have become more popular recently.
This edition closes with a message from the author that reveals him to have been one of those lovers of nature who rues the growing disconnect between human culture and the natural environment on which it depends, as well as the myopia that leads humanity to turn on its own species.
It has been, and it is, an ever changing world. The great difference between past and present is that now by the agency of man it is changing much more rapidly. Man with his disregard of the past and small thought of the future destroys in a year what it took Nature ages to produce—man sweeps away forests, the growth of centuries, and with them wipes out of existence races of animals that represent the culmination of thousands of years of evolution ever onward and upward.For a bit more on this title, check out Mark Crowell's page.
With the disappearance of the forests comes the shrinking of streams and at the same time the sweeping away by floods of fertile soil that results from long ages of growth.
Moreover, man turns his attention to his fellow man and blots out whole races, or, if they survive, it is with changed customs.
