New York's trilobites were among the first illustrated fossils in North America.

Many outstanding localities in New York State, from the majestic Ordovician limestone bluffs of Trenton Falls, to the Silurian beds in the great gorge of Niagara River, to the Devonian shale cliffs of Lake Erie, continue to yield abundant and spectacular trilobite fossils. New York strata have also yielded more trilobites with preserved appendages and other "soft parts" than almost any other region of the world.

"Trilobites are the most lifelike of fossils―many well-preserved specimens belie their great antiquity and seem almost ready to arch their bodies, peer about with their compound eyes, and crawl forward as if to complete a journey that was interrupted hundreds of millions of years ago."―from the Foreword"New York State is and has long been a magnet for trilobite hunters. . . . New York's trilobites were among the first illustrated fossils in North America. . . . Many outstanding localities in New York State, from the majestic Ordovician limestone bluffs of Trenton Falls, to the Silurian beds in the great gorge of Niagara River, to the Devonian shale cliffs of Lake Erie, continue to yield abundant and spectacular trilobite fossils. New York strata have also yielded more trilobites with preserved appendages and other "soft parts" than almost any other region of the world. . . . Spectacular, ornate trilobites from New York ranging from a few millimeters to nearly a half meter in length, are featured in museums all over the world."―from the PrefaceThis superbly illustrated book reviews the trilobite fossils found throughout New York State, including their biology, methods of taphonomy (preservation of specimens), and the broader Paleozoic geology of the state. A general chapter on the geology of New York State places the importance of these now-extinct invertebrate marine animals into context. Sixty-seven line drawings and 175 black-and-white photographs illustrate individual species, many represented here by type specimens, and display the eerie beauty that has made New York State trilobites favorites of collectors the world over.

The authors have created a classic. All trilobite localities should have a book like this written on their fauna and stratigraphy.

This coffee table tome celebrates New York State's high standing in the study of trilobites, those cute, bug-like fossils prized by collectors. Several scholarly chapters on trilobite biology, taphonomy and the geology of the region are followed by dozens of beautiful, full page, black and white photos of specimens. The garish cover illustration does not do justice to the images within. If you've got the cash and the passion, this is a worthy purchase.

For anyone interested in trilobites, this is a fantastic book. The photography is superb, many of the specimens pictured are incredibly complete and masterfully prepared. It is amazing how many species of this extinct creature are preserved in New York. Not only are there wonderful photos, but excellent background and stratigraphic information to make the treatise complete. These authors know their subject. Clearly a lot of effort went into this book, and it shows. And the glorious photo on the front cover makes it a book you want to leave out on the coffee table.
