Indeed!

Also, the recent (1994) book "The American Museum of Natural History's Book
of Dinosaurs and Other Ancient Creatures" by Joeseph Wallace (Simon &
Schuster) has, as its cover, the SMITHSONIAN'S (!) Edmontosaurus annectens
specimen!

Odd that the museum with the greatest dinosaur collection in the world has
been honored with pictures from some of the other great dinosaur museums...
