In the Blood: God, Genes and Destiny

HarperCollins, 1996. First Edition. Hardcover. Item #272855
ISBN: 0002555115

301 pages. By the British geneticist. Profusely illustrated, about half in color. First edition (first printing). A near fine copy in a dust jacket with some edge wear and a short tear to the spine fold. Association copy. Inscribed by the author on the title page: 'To Steve Gould -- with admiration from a fellow malacologist! Steve Jones.' 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.
