The Commission was famously split and its recommendations were published in one report. A large propganda campaign was organized by Sidney and Beatrice Webb in support of the recommendations for prevention of destitution. In the years that followed, the fabric of the old Poor Law was gradually dismantled and the new system of social insurance took its place. ISBN: 281AIB1050938.

  • The Emerging Religion of Science by Rothschild, Richard C.
    Rothschild, Richard C.
    The Emerging Religion of Science

    First Edition

    New York: Praeger, 1989. 164 pages. Addresses the modern Western world caught in a battle of the Bible vs. Evolution. The final book by the former director of the American Jewish Committee, which led an educational campaign against anti-Semitism during World War Two. Published posthumously, Rothschild completed the manuscript in the months before his death in 1986. ISBN: 9780275930974.

    First edition (first printing). Covers slightly splayed, thus a near fine copy; no dust jacket. Inscribed on the front free endpaper by the author's grandson; "To Steve, I know my grandfather would have been pleased to know you had this." 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.
