Some time ago, I posted an ad for World of Dinosaurs from issue #46 of The Brave & the Bold. I went looking for the book after finding that ad, and got an affordable hardcover copy. Author Edwin H. Colbert, a respected paleontologist who among other things discovered a group of more than a dozen complete Coelophysis skeletons in 1947, would no doubt want to update some of the science in World of Dinosaurs these days—from the swamp-dwelling sauropods dragging their tails, to the extinction theories. But I always get a kick out of the art in vintage dinosaur books, and George Geygan’s painterly approach is no exception.

Collector’s Guide: From World of Dinosaurs by Dr. Edwin H. Colbert and George Geygan; Home Library Press, 1961. If it is out of stock, try the 1977 edition publsihed as The Dinosaur World.
