I finally got my copy, Beebe's copy, of his book Our Search  for a Wilderness, with his bookplate. The seller thought it was an iguana, but I knew it was a sketch of a possible "pre-Archaeopteryx" avian ancestor he had imagined. In 1910.

I think it was 2003 when they dug up Microraptor gui. The model is light- colored, but it has been discovered to be irridescent black. Mira!

I am painting my model black, and displaying it with the book...

Who did the bookplate?

I don't know, but I always thought it was to Beebe's design.

Speaking of dino feathers. The first NA find.
