The Pattern of Vertebrate Evolution (University Reviews in Biology Number 10)

W. H. Freeman and Company, 1968. First Edition. Hardcover. Item #272847

209 pages. By the British paleontologist and professor of Geology & Zoology. Illustrated including with a fold-out chart. American edition published with the British sheets. First edition (first printing). A fine copy in a dust jacket with creased snags to the covers and a chip to one corner. 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.
