Description:
The object of this book is to describe some of the larger and more monstrous forms of the past -- the lost creations of the old world; to clothe their dry bones with flesh, and suggest for them backgrounds such as are indicated by the discoveries of geology: in other words, to endeavour, by means of pen and pencil, to bring them back to life.
