This volume is the fifth in a series listing and indexing publications in vertebrate paleontology and paleoanthropology for the years 1928–1953. Previous installments have been published by the Geological Society of America; the first two as Special Papers nos. 27 and 42, the third and fourth as Memoirs nos. 37 and 57.

If the “close of the Pleistocene” were to be taken as a final date much of interest would require omission. There would be little or nothing cited on fossil man and associated, but now extinct, vertebrates in North and South America. And there are difficulties in determining the “close of the Pleistocene” in non-glaciated parts of the world.
