    San Francisco, CA: Harr Wagner Publishing, (n.d. but ca. 1930). 43 pages, mimeographed from typescript. Speech Defect Series No. 2. Gifford was a pioneering educator working to solve the problem of stuttering, stammering, and other speech disorders. She was one of the first to realize and promote the idea that the problem was not mechanical but psychological. In the introduction she writes, "It must be fully understood in the beginning that we believe the causes of these nervous speech disorders are psychologic and that the spasmodic manifestations of the speech organs are only the external effect of deep-seated emotional conflicts."

    San Francisco, CA: Harr Wagner Publishing, (n.d. but ca. 1930). 43 pages, mimeographed from typescript. Speech Defect Series No. 2. Gifford was a pioneering educator working to solve the problem of stuttering, stammering, and other speech disorders.

In the introduction she writes, "It must be fully understood in the beginning that we believe the causes of these nervous speech disorders are psychologic and that the spasmodic manifestations of the speech organs are only the external effect of deep-seated emotional conflicts."

    In 1926, Gifford became the chief of the first state-level educational organization devoted to speech therapy. This was the second publication of the newly formed California Bureau of Correction of Speech Defects and Disorders in the state Department of Education. The text appears to reference a 1931 publication of the Bureau, which was then in preparation, dating this to between 1926 and 1931.

    A very scarce and early work from a pioneer in the treatment of stuttering. ISBN: 281AIB1040261.

  • The Human Vocal Tract: Anatomy, Function, Development, and Evolution by Crelin, Edmund S.
    Crelin, Edmund S.
    The Human Vocal Tract: Anatomy, Function, Development, and Evolution

    First Edition

    New York: 1987. 265 pages. Vantage Press was probably the largest vanity press before self-published authors turned to print-on-demand technology. This is the rare Vantage Press title that is taken seriously in its field. Crelin was the leading neo-natal anatomist and a Yale professor. Crelin explores the development of the human vocal tract with the vocal track of other hominid species in order to understand the range of sounds that might have been possible. Extensively illustrated with photographs and diagrams. ISBN: 9780533069675.

    First edition (first printing). Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Inscribed by the author on the front pastedown, "July 19, 1991, Best Wishes to Stephen Jay Gould! Ed Crelin."

    From the Harvard office library of the paleontologist and leading advocate for evolution, Stephen Jay Gould. 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.
