  • The Great Chain of History: William Buckland and the English School of Geology, 1814-1849 by Rupke, Nicolaas A.
    Rupke, Nicolaas A.
    The Great Chain of History: William Buckland and the English School of Geology, 1814-1849

    First Edition

    Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1983. 322 pages. "[D]escribes the early nineteenth-century English contributions to the revolutionary discovery that the earth had existed long before man and that it had passed through a progressive sequence of changes" -- from the front flap. ISBN: 9780198229070.

    First edition (first printing). A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "To Prof. Gould, with kind regards. Nicholas [sic] Rupke." 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.
