Theagarten Lingham-Soliar's The Vertebrate Integument Volume 2

The first volume of Theagarten Lingham-Soliar's The Vertebrate
Integument  came out last year, but did not directly address the
dinosaur feather issue according to some reports. (I don't have the
entire contents.) Apparently the second volume does.
