Grundfragen der Palaontologie

Arno Press, 1980. Hardcover. Item #218714
ISBN: 0405127413

505 pages. Facsimile reprint of the 1950 edition published in Stuttgart. Text in German. From the History of Paleontology collection of reprints by Arno Press. Series editor Stephen Jay Gould. A fine hardcover copy; no dust jacket, as issued. From the Harvard office library of the paleontologist and leading advocate for evolution, Stephen Jay Gould. With a posthumous 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.
