Extinct animals by E. Ray Lankester ( Book )

This book contains pretty fascinating stories, and especially comparisons between extinct and present animals, with 218 illustrations. This book was one of Conan Doyle's primary sources for The Lost World. It was the only reference cited in the novel itself: in order to confirm Maple White's illustration of a stegosaurus to an incredulous Malone, Challenger hands a copy of the book by his "gifted friend, Ray Lankester!" Over the course of The Lost World's serialization, Lankester and Conan Doyle carried on a correspondence. The former would even suggest prehistoric animals to populate the lost plateau
