     The Glut book claims that it will have all known discovered material

Get them both if possible. The Glut book is a huge picture file of material,
some unavailable elsewhere except in original papers, quite hard to find.
Currie/Padian is slick with very current info on all aspects of dinosaurology,
not just the available material.
