Patterns of Change in Earth Evolution: Report of the Dahlem Workshop on Patterns of Change in Earth Evolution, Berlin, 1983, May 1-6 (Physical, Chemical, and Earth Sciences Research Report 5)

Springer-Verlag, 1984. First Edition. Library Binding. Item #223406
ISBN: 0387127496

431 pages. Illustrated with black-and-white graphs, tables and photo reproductions. First edition (first printing). A fine hardcover copy; no dust jacket. 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.

Price: $20.00
