In case any of you would like to get this book, (I highly recommend it), I
believe it is out of print under this title.  YOU CAN GET IT though, under
the title The Prehistoric Flying Reptiles, it has been reissued or
reprinted or whatever from Barnes and Noble Book Company.  I don't have
the ISBN right now.  Should anybody show an interest, I will produce this
information (I might do it anyway).
