From the Inside Flap
The Wonderful Egg was first printed in 1960 using a hand-picked colour palette and traditional printing techniques. As Dahlov Ipcar's original lithographic plates were lost many years ago, Flying Eye Books has worked to faithfuly restore and reproduce the quality of the original art. Using modern techniques, our restorers have painstakingly picked out the layers of spot colour and re-mastered each brush stroke while keeping the integrity of the line.The Wonderful Egg has been brought back to life in an edition worthy of the original classic.
From the Back Cover
Long, long ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth, one wonderful egg sat all alone in a blue-green mossy nest at the base of a giant fern tree. But whose egg was it? And where did it come from?Dahlov Ipcar takes us back to a prehistoric world, teeming with creatures that soar, swim and thunder through the green jungle world. First published in 1958, The Wonderful Egg has been beautifully re-mastered from the original edition and printed in splendid spot colors. See all Product description

Don't be fooled by this promise of educational information. There is incorrect information on virtually EVERY PAGE.
[For a list of some of the errors that most annoyed me, along with illustrations from the book, visit my blog, Cozy Little Book Journal.]
It's clear to me that the biggest selling feature of this book is the artwork and the nostalgia it is supposed to inspire. Maybe that would be fine if it wasn't presented as educational. If you really want to republish a dinosaur book with beautiful pictures but completely wrong info, perhaps you should also get permission to update the text.
