On the Phylogeny and the Ontogeny of the Human Larynx: A morphological and functional study
Groningen, The Netherlands: Wolters-Noordhoff Publishing, 1970. 157 pages. 8-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches. The author's Ph.D. thesis. ISBN: 9789001954505.
First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a very good dust jacket. Inscribed by the author to Stephen Jay Gould who would cite this book in his Ontogeny and Phylogeny. With a posthumous tipped in bookplate indicating the provenance.
Intellectually, Gould understood the true nature of these bookplates, but the book collector in him appreciated them. In his essay "A Seahorse for All Races" Gould writes about one of his prized possessions, a book from Charles Dickens' library: "Dickens made no annotations, but a bookplate on the cover, presumably inserted as a come-on for a sale after Dickens' death in 1870, does prove that [he] kept and shelved the book."
We offer our Gould bookplates, printed letterpress in two colors, in the same spirit.
