An Easy Outline of Evolution

Watts & Co., 1910. Hardcover. Item #223407
ISBN: 281AIB1044046

128 pages. Intended for beginning students of evolution. Second impression of the reissued edition. A very good hardcover copy; no dust jacket. Gutter cracked at the copyright page and before the last page. With ownership signatures of two former owners. From the Harvard office library of the paleontologist and leading advocate for evolution, Stephen Jay Gould (not signed by 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.
