Systematic Revision and Suprageneric Classification of Trochacean Gastropods

Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, 1990. First Edition. Hardcover. Item #225297
ISBN: B004HXEL7E

Science Series, Number 35. 169 pages with 97 figures, including many detail microscope images. First edition (first printing). A near fine hardcover copy; no dust jacket, as issued. Inscribed by Hickman to the paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould, 'For Steve, with warmest wishes, Carole.' Gould's academic speciality was land snails. *** This copy is from Gould's Harvard office library, 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.
