New Logo for the Society

The Palaeontographical Society has adopted a new logo. The specimen featured is Eteoderoceras obesum (Spath, 1925) from the Black Ven Marls, Raricostatum Zone, Densinodulum Subzone, Sinemurian, Lower Jurassic of Stonebarrow, Charmouth, Dorset. It was featured on Plate 10, fig. 2a of one of our recent monographs (Edmunds 2009) and is held in the National Museum of Wales.

New partnership with Cambridge University Press - digitising and reprinting of C19th monographs

The Palaeontographical Society is pleased to announce a new partnership with Cambridge University Press, who have begun a process of scanning and reprinting out-of-print monographs and offering them for sale at very reasonable prices through their website (click here).

The first to be available are Darwin's monographs on barnacles (1851, 1854), Owen & Bell's on Tertiary Reptilia (1849–58), and Arthur Smith Woodward's on Chalk (1902–12) and Wealden and Purbeck (1916–19) fishes.  For each of these works the relevant parts have been combined into a single publication, making them extremely convenient and excellent value.

The process will be ongoing, and links to reprints will be advertised on our homepage and through our own online shop as they become available.
