A Bibliography of the Fossil Mammals of Africa, 1950-1972
(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.".
