Folding the Universe: Origami From Angelfish to Zen
New York: Vintage Books, (1989). 323 pages. 8-1/2 by 11 inches. An introduction to the art, history and philosophy of paperfolding. Profusely illustrated in blue-and-black ink. ISBN: 9780394757513.
First edition (first printing, Vintage original with full numberline). Minor edge wear else a fine copy in wrappers (paperback). Inscribed by the author: "To Stephen Jay Gould, For setting the highest standards of writing and scholarship and giving me something to aim for. Peter Engel 6/1/89." 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.Book ID: 221785More details Price: $75.00
