    EBOOK Skulls By Simon Winchester This book's title is right about one thing and that is that Alan Dudley's collection of skulls is definitely curious  Whether or not that is a good sort of curiosity or not is up for debate but it is a curious collection without dispute  The origins of this book are somewhat odd  Alan Dudley himself happens to be an English collector of skulls who has perhaps the largest private collection in the world of which this book represents only

SUMMARY ☆ Skulls By Simon Winchester Skulls is a beautiful spellbinding exploration of than 300 different animal skulls amphibians birds fish mammals and reptiles written by New York Times bestselling author Simon Winchester and produced in collaboration with Theodore Gray and Touch Press the geniuses behind The Elements and Solar SystemIn Skulls best selling author Simon Winchester author of The Professor and the Madman; Atlantic A Biography of the Ocean; Krakatoa The Day the World Exploded; and others tells the rich and fascinating story of skulls both human and animal from every perspective imaginable historical biographic. Most people who like natural history and the outdoor world are in my experience entranced by skulls We find them beautiful assuming the stinky parts are long gone and they tell tales about the species and the individual The individual tales are often tragic a horse skull with a broken lower jaw a coyote skull with a bullet hole a smashed skull from a road killed raccoon The species tales are less freighted Teeth and sagittal crests imply how the animal made its living and defended itselfThis hardcover is a beautiful collection of Nick Mann s photos of skulls that were prepared by a private collector Alan Dudley Dudley came to Winchester s attention after getting busted buying an illegal howler monkey skull He pleaded guilty did his service and paid his fine and the implication is that he isn t normally one to slip up in this way I find this pretty satisfactory he does a great job with the skulls and shares his expertise AND he serves as a lesson to other collectors not to get carried away and promote a market for slaughtering rare animals Replicas of many species are readily available by the way Dudley gets almost all of his skulls from zoosAmong this book s virtues are a plethora of bird fish and reptile skulls Photographs of mammal skulls are widely available as they are the taxonomic touchstone for mammals The others not so much Partly they are less common because I know from trying fish and reptile skulls can be the very devil to prepare Of special interest a great assortment of hornbills odd and fragile skulls of venomous snakes wild pigs with their seemingly self destructive curving tusks Be sure to take a look at the domestic dog skulls and consider what we have done to the sturdy wolfMost of the photos are by Nick Mann who has done great work on other Workman Publishing science books as well and most are excellent Many of the smaller skulls are out of focus however Printing the images against a black background works very well for most skulls but much detail is lost for black bird bills such as the Northern Shoveler and the black horns of some bovidsThe photo of Holbein s large painting The Ambassadors lacks details discussed in the text Most of these weaknesses are demerits for the printer not the author or photographerThe photos are interspersed with text about skulls in art history human evolution etc These are interesting written for a non technical audience but this is primarily a visual book a beautiful addition to the natural history library Cracking the LSAT Premium with 3 Real Practice Tests, 27th Edition: The All-in-One
