Neue Fische und Reptilien aus der böhmischen Kreideformation


VERTEBRATE fossils are not only rare, but also badly preserved, in the Cretaceous rocks of Bohemia. Palæontologists must therefore admire the enthusiasm of Dr. Anton Fritsch, who continues to devote to the interpretation of difficult fragments so much study as is evidenced by his numerous writings on these remains. In 1878 he published a complete synopsis of the subject as then understood. Now, with the aid of Dr. Franz Bayer in the determination of fishes, he again publishes an up-to-date treatise, including the discoveries of the last quarter of a century. The work is illustrated in Dr. Fritsch's usual style, and a few of the figures are revised drawings of specimens previously described.
