The Cretaceous Ammonites of Venezuela
by  Otto Renz

ISBN 3-7643-1364-1, published in 1982 by Birkhauser, Basel, Switzerland, Boston, and Stuttgart, Germany, case bound (in laminated boards), about 8.75 by 12.25 inches, 22 by 31 cm., 132 pages plus 40-page size plates of black and white photographs and drawings and 91 figures in the text

This remarkable book has always been scarce and I was lucky enough to be able to find a copy of it that is in new condition. It is a scholarly textbook covering and illustrating the Ammonites of the Cretaceous  Period that are found in northern Venezuela. In all these fossils are found in 28 families among 83 genera, and all are described and very well illustrated in this book. Dr. Renz had a notable career as a paleontologist and did considerable work at the Basel Natural History Museum following a long career in many other positions.  He did research in Venezuela from1946 to 1959.
