These papers; by C. D. Walcott, contain his studies of trilobites, and in particular those found in the Burgess Shale of the Canadian Rockies and the Cambrian beds of the Western United States. The volumes are dated: Vol. 53, 1908-1910, Vol. 57, 1910-1914, Vol. 64, 1914-1916, Vol. 67, 1917-1924 and Vol. 75, 1924-1928.

Light toning to some text pages, over all in very good condition. The complete set of these studies is very rare.

Walcott (1850-1927); an American invertebrate paleontologist with the USGS and later Secretary of the Smithsonian, is noted for his studies of Precambrian and Cambrian fossils and rocks especially in the Canadian Rockies. His are some of the earliest studies of the Burgess Shale and its unusual life forms. Within these works, one can follow Walcott's studies and his line of thinking in developing a stratigraphy within the Burgess Shale as well as Cambrian formations in the western United States. A complete set is also an excellent reference for the study and identification of trilobites. The plates are of an excellent quality which is typical for this period of Smithsonian works.The set consists of:
