Untitled[edit]

I have a book of Willy Ley's called The Lungfish, the Dodo and the Unicorn: An Excursion into Romantic Zoology. This sounds similar to the book Exotic Zoology but was first published in 1948, with a second printing in 1951. Are they the same book, perhaps with revisions and a less-silly title?

Why paranormal? I don't see why Willy Ley should fall under this category. Any comments anyone? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.114.58.46 (talk) 15:23, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Removed it. --Orange Mike | Talk 00:30, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Engineers' Dreams[edit]

As a teenager I read this 1954 book but don't have the information that's called for by the book cite format used by the bibliography here. Jim.henderson (talk) 11:41, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

It's in the article already. --Orange Mike | Talk 00:29, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Missing book in publications.[edit]

I've got a book by Willy Ley called "Willy Ley's Worlds of the Past". It was published in 1970 by Golden Press, and was illustrated by Rudolph F. Zallinger. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.23.236.224 (talk) 00:21, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
