FOSSILS OF THE CHALK
(FIRST EDITION)


(Second hand copy in very good condition)

Compiled by Ellis Owen.
Edited by Andrew B Smith


The Chalk, a characteristic white limestone deposited across much of northern Europe during the Upper Cretaceous, contains a remarkably diverse and well preserved fossil fauna. This book is a superb guide to the identification of the almost complete range of fossils likely to be collected in the Chalk of Britain.

It has 11 chapters each dealing with a specific fossil group, ranging from sponges to dinosaurs, and written by individual specialists. Almost 400 species are illustrated photographically in 59 plates and each is accompanied by a brief diagnosis to aid identification together with notes on its stratigraphical range and distribution.


Published by the Palaeontological Association in 1987 (Field Guide to Fossils no.2). Black and white photographs and illustrations throughout.​ First edition (a second edition was published in 2002).

Soft cover. 306 pages. Very good condition.
