dinosaurs' world with elegantly written and illustrated pages on
_Ceratosaurus_, _Camptosaurus_, _Camarasaurus_, _Brachiosaurus_,
_Goniopholis_, _Stegosaurus_, _Allosaurus_, _Opisthias_,
_Edmontonia_,_Einiosaurus_, _Daspletosaurus_, _Palaeosaniwa_,
_Corythosaurus_, _Ornithomimus_, and _Parasaurolophus_.  

Also included are sections on what makes a dinosaur, where dinosaurs
have been found in the U.S., additional information on dinosaur stamps,
and a beautiful fold-out of the paintings which were the basis for the
stamp sheets.
