About this collection

Inspired by the exhibition Paper Dinosaurs, this collection expands on the illustrations shown in the exhibit. Like the exhibit, this collection presents original printed materials related to the history of dinosaur discovery. Taken from the classic scientific literature on dinosaurs, the collection includes Richard Owens's first use of the word “Dinosauria,” and original images by Gideon Mantell, Othniel Marsh, Charles Knight, and others.
