    First edition (first printing). A fine copy in a dust jacket with light wear to edges and corners, else fine. A large, heavy book. Inscribed by the author on the half-title: "This copy is for Stephen Gould, I hope this book will bring you to our desert as soon as possible. / Richard Felger / June 1989." From the Harvard office library of the paleontologist and leading advocate for evolution, Stephen Jay Gould. With a 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.
