       Somewhere around here, buried, is a catalog of AMNH Vertebrate 
Paleontology pubs I got when I was 12 years old back in 19 ought 61. I 
ordered a lot of Bulletins and Novitates about tyrannosaurs and ceratopsians 
for between $.25 and $1.50 each. The most expensive item in the catalog was 
Osborn's _Probosceidia_at $20 a volume -- way out of my price range. Still 
is, come to think of it. Where's a time machine when you need one? DV
