  • The Races of Mankind by Nesturkh, M.
    Nesturkh, M.
    The Races of Mankind

    First Edition

    Moscow: Progress Publishers, (n.d. but ca. 1960s). 113 pages; two fold-out plates; many black-and-white and color illustrations of typical examples of peoples of various races. Nesturkh was a Soviet anthropologist who followed the party line of racial equality; however, his work is read by right-wing groups as documenting scientifically documented racial differences (see Rightpedia.info). ISBN: B0007JBZOE.

    First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a very good dust jacket.

    From the Harvard office library of the paleontologist and leading advocate for evolution and strident opponent of scientific racism, 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.
