This volume is in large part a reprint of various popular descriptions and notices in the American Museum Journal and elsewhere by Professor Henry Fairfield Osborn, Mr. Barnum Brown, and the writer. There has been a considerable demand for these articles which are now mostly out of print. In reprinting it seemed best to combine and supplement them so as to make a consecutive and intelligible account of theD inosaur collections in theM useum. The original notices are quoted verbatim; for the remainder of the text the present writer is responsible. Professor S. W. Williston of Chicago University has kindly contributed a chapter all too brief describing the first discoveries of dinosaurs in theW estern formations that have since yielded so large a harvest. The photographs of American Museum specimens are by Mr. A. E. A nderson; the field photographs by various Museum expeditions; the restorations by Mr. Charles R. Knight. Most of these illustrations have been published elsewhere by Professor Osborn, Mr. Brown and others. The diagrams, figs. 1-9, 24, 25, 37 and 40, are my own. W. D. M.
