Dinosaurs in the Attic: An Excursion into the American Museum of Natural History

Traces the history of the American Museum of Natural History describes the individuals who helped shape the museum, and discusses its collection of dinosaur bones, insects, birds, meteorites, and mineralsFrom Library JournalNew York's American Museum of Natural History, one of the outstanding science museums in the world, contains an extraordinary collection of objects: dinosaur skeletons, human mummies, tiny beetles, birds of paradise, and massive totem poles. Only a tiny fraction of the millions of catalogued specimens is on public view, and Douglas, with a series of judicious choices, takes us on a tour of the great labyrinth of storerooms and vaults that houses the bulk of the collection. Of equal interest are the people who built up and continue to maintain this extraordinary collection. This is a delightful book filled with fascinating stories, anecdotes, and personalities. Highly recommended. Walter P. Coombs, Jr., Biology Dept., Western New Engalnd Coll., Springfield, Mass.Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc.
