The Book of the Great Sea-Dragons

For anyone interested in the early history of palaeontology, and who also
enjoys reading a good rant, I've made an on-line version and a pdf of Thomas

It's worth taking a bit of time to read it. There's a fair amount of good
scientific observation and interesting speculation interlaced with the
extravagant prose.
