A direct response to the Nazi ideology of Aryan superiority, arguing not simply for Jewish equality but Jewish superiority, using "scientific" (the author's word) analysis.

    The Western Wall

    First Edition

    (n.d. but New York): Hugh Lauter Levin Associates, Inc, (1997). 143 pages. 11 by 11 inches. Photography monograph capturing people and events at the most sacred place in Jewish biblical history. Introduction by Yehuda Amichai. Photographs reproduced in color including two fold-outs. ISBN: 9780883631973.

    First edition (first printing). A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "For Rohnda & Stephen, from the heart of Jerusalem and my own, with appreciation, Michael." A large, heavy book. 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.
