The Fossil Book, 1958

Carroll Lane Fenton and Mildred Adams Fenton

I got this for $10. It's really cool and has 482 pp. Actually it's pretty good where invertebrate fossils are concerned. From Acknowledgments:

Restorations of invertebrates are based chiefly upon our own studies. Those of vertebrates emobdy the work of Knight, Horsfall, Price, Germann, and other artists, and of such paleontologists as Osborn, Matthew, Scott, Case, Williston, Merriam, Stock, Simpson, and Romer. Restorations of plants reveal our debt to Seward, Wieland, Goldring, and other authorities.

In places you can probably see where direct inspiration was taken...
