    Etudes critiques sur les mollusques fossiles

    New York: Arno Press, 1980. 287 pages. 8-7/8 by 11-1/4 inches. Text in French. Reprint of the 1840-45 edition. Illustrated in black-and-white. A volume in the History of Paleontology collection of reprints by Arno Press. ISBN: 9780405127021.

    A fine hardcover copy in brown cloth with gold lettering on cover and spine. No dust jacket. 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.
