The book is now called _The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Prehistoric
Flying Reptiles_ by Dr. Peter Wellnhofer.
The ISBN is 076070154-7, and it is $14.98 plus tax. When you go into
your local B&N go to the Bargain Section. I am the bargain supervisor at the
Barnes & Noble in Annapolis, MD, and almost all the stores are carrying this
title as part of the Christmas Proprietary display. This means the book is
now published exclusively by Barnes & Noble.
The cover of the book is a light yellow.
If you cannot locate this item in your local store, I have about
five left (not sure if I'll be getting any more in) and you can purchase it
over the phone with a credit card. There is a $3.00 charge for UPS shipping.
The number of the store is (410) 573-1115. Hours are from 9 a.m. to
11 p.m. every day (East Coast time) and most booksellers can help you. You
can ask for me by name, as well.
We also have a title called _Dinosaurs: A Global View_ by Czerkas,
and that carries a $24.98 price tag in the bargain section. I don't have the
I hope this isn't inappropriate. I assure you, I get no commission
or even special brownie points for phone sales : ). Hope this helps!
