Fine. 322 pages. Reprint of the 1916 edition which was issued with the title Origin and Evolution of Life: On the Theory of Action, Reaction and Interaction of Energy. With 136 black-and-white illustrations. A fine hardcover copy in brown cloth with gold lettering on cover and spine. No dust jacket. From the Harvard office library of the paleontologist and leading advocate for evolution, Stephen Jay Gould. With a 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.
