Daniel, Try the web and look for......Yorkshire Type Ammonites....by S.S.Buckman... volumes I & II.

a REPRINT IN 1972 is difficult to find and will be expensive. There are also Yorkshire ammonites in vols VI & VII. If you find the complete set, expect to pay £3-£400.
If you are keen, the set is well worthwhile. I  still use it after 50 years!
Greetings,  TOARCIANJOHN

It´ll take some time still before the book is ready.

All the best,

Books by Michael Howarth are pretty good - I'd call them worth their weight in gold based on the ones I have. You can also check out the Biodiversity heritage library where you could download for free - just let me know if you look there and you're not sure how to use it.
Daniel - check your pm's.

There is an Indian company reprinting the Buckman "Yorkshire Type Ammonites" to order. Has anyone come across these and if so are they any good?  Seems too good to be true.

There will be a book published by palaeontological association as part of their field guide series called fossils of the Yorkshire lias which will have all the most common fossils found on the coast including ammonites. It is due for publication in about a year from now if not sooner.

Hello Daniel, one of the most usefull books for me is "Ammoniten des suddeutschen Lias"; yes, a german book, but with lots of Yorkshire ammonites in it.
Only flaw for me is that the german language, allthough similar to dutch, is not allways easy to understand.
But it has good pictures that can help determining wich ammonite you`ve found.

greetings, Bert
