Hi, 

We received several copies as well.

I could not find any source/citations for the fossil images.

I wonder if the authors of these images (and/or their publishers), could sue
this guy for using copy right information? If he had that amount of money to
publish and send via DHL these heavy books, for sure he will have money to
pay all the fines, right?

Best,

Alina.
