  • The Mentality of Apes by Kohler, Wolfgang
    Kohler, Wolfgang
    The Mentality of Apes

    London: Harcourt, Brace & Company, Inc, 1927. 336 pages. Translated from the German second revised edition. The results of studies on the intelligence of Apes conducted 1913-1917 at the Anthropoid Station in Tenerife, Canary Islands. Illustrated with black-and-white plates. ISBN: B008S61I2C.

    A near fine hardcover copy; no dust jacket. Light spotting to page block and a small nick to the cloth on the bottom edge of the front cover. Previous ownership signature of author Lloyd Cabot Briggs on the front paste-down. Obtained 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.
