HENDEY, Q. B. - Langebaanweg. A Record of Past Life

(Cape Town: South African Museum, 1987) 0868130176. . 208 x 150 mm; pictorial wrappers; pp. (vi) + 71; photographs; line drawings; maps; diagrams. Wrappers very slightly rubbed; hand-stamp to title page; a little light foxing. Very good condition. "Today, the south-western coast of South Africa is dry and windswept, the vegetation stunted, and few wild animals inhabit the region. This was not always the case. The sediments of the region, and the fossils they contain, testify to periods of warmer temperature, higher rainfall, lush vegetation, and animal life of great abundance and variety. This book tells the story of the past 20 million years at Langebaanweg near Saldanha Bay, where one of the world's richest fossil sites provides a unique insight into a tropical wildlife paradise in decline.".
