        Ever Since Darwin. Reflections in Natural History

      New York: W. W. Norton & Company, Inc., 1977. New York: W. W. Norton & Company, Inc.,, 1977. Octavo. Original orange boards, brown cloth backstrip, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Illustrations within the text. Very lightly rubbed at extremities, spine a little rolled, some faint spotting to edges of text block. An excellent copy in the price-clipped, rubbed, and dulled jacket with nicks and short splits at the folds. First edition, first printing of the author's first book for the general public, his second overall. Inscribed by Gould on the front free endpaper, "For June, my very best fan. With best wishes & thanks for your interest, Steve Gould". Evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould was a prominent public intellectual, best known for the series of 300 essays on biology and the history of science written for Natural History Magazine between 1974 and 2002. This volume is the first collection of those essays, and includes thirty-three pieces on subjects ranging from the Cambrian species explosion to IQ, race, and biological determinism. The collection became a best-seller and propelled Gould to scientific stardom. Inscribed copies are rare. "A stylish writer, Gould characterised each essay by deriving a seemingly abstruse point in natural history or palaeontology via a sideways look at a novel, a building, or, often, a reference to his lifelong enthusiasm for baseball… As a scientific essayist, Gould's only peers were 'Darwin's bulldog', Thomas Huxley, in the 19th century and JBS Haldane in the 1930s and 40s. The comparison with Haldane is apt in two further ways; both made fundamental contributions to evolutionary theory, and both were politically engaged both within science and in the broader political arena" (Guardian obituary). His essays on the history of science were not "not the sort of whiggish, anecdotal approach by which senior scientists tend to ossify the progression from past obscurity to present clarity, but a deeper attempt to understand the twists and turns of theory and evidence, which ensure that even our present-day knowledge is provisional, and like life itself, historically constrained" (Guardian obituary).

        History of Logic.

      Kent, Abacus Press, 1977.. Second Edition. Four Volumes. 23.9cm x 17.3cm. xvi, 342,vii, 265, viii, 393, vii, 271 pages. Original hardcovers in original illustrated dustjackets. Very good condition with only minor signs of wear.. Since ancient China thinkers throughout the world have studied logic, but not until Carl Prantl wrote "Geschichte der Logik im Abendelande" (1855-1870) was an attempt made to compile a history of the subject. This, however, only goes up to the end of the 16th century. I.M. Bochenski's "Formale Logic", written in 1956, is an important book containing an anthology of texts, but dealing mainly with the rise of mathematical logic. W. and M. Kneale brought out in 1962 "The Development of Logic", a most vaulable book dealing with many aspects of the history of logic. Professor Dumitriu's book is the most comprehensive work of reference on this subject. It is an all embracing work which attempts to ttreat exhaustively the whole range of this discipline, and covers subjects such as the methodology of science, the problem of categories, the dialectics, the philosophy of logic etc. By the use of extensive quotations Professor Dumitriu enables us to follow his argument as he develops it, and as it develops we can see the justification of his conclusion that "Logic is its history, it is the summation of all its moments". Dumitriu's "History of Logic" has been described by eminent scholars as an "Opus Magnum of the history of logic." This book is essential reading for anyone studying philosophy. It will be the standard reference book in the history of logic and as such indispensible in all learned libraries. Those researching in pure mathematics will find the section of mathematical logic invaluable.

        denver: A Photographic Survey of the Metropolitan Area

      Colorado Associated University Press 1977 - Boulder: Colorado Associated University Press, 1977. (8 3/4 x 10 1/2 in., 22.2 x 26.6 cm). 122pp. First edition. Contains 92 plates of photographs dating 1973-74. Black cloth wrapped boards with titles printed in white (covers with a few rub marks; heel tapped a bit and sunned there, too, else corners sharp; top and fore-edge of block with light spotting, a bit musty; price penciled to the half title page, else internally clean and nearly fine); photographically illustrated dust jacket (price clipped, minor edge creasing, a few indentations; significant fading, especially to the lower panel; overall very good, complete). "Adams had originally intended to call this book 'Places to Stand' (a variant on a line of the poem that serves as the epigraph) but changed it to 'denver', a title he felt would have broader appeal. He began the project under the auspices of the State Historical Society of Colorado, which helped him gain access to the factory interiors that contribute to distinguishing this volume's subject from that of 'The New West'. While 'denver' maintains the segmented organization of Adams's earliest publications, the book was the first in which his pictures appeared independent of explanatory captions (a few captions can be found in the back of the book)." (Chuang, 'Books by Robert Adams' in 'The Place We Live volume III', np.) A reasonably well preserved hardcover copy of this, the first edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        In Their Element - SIGNED BY SEAMUS HEANEY

      Arts Council of Northern Ireland 1977 - RARE AND SOUGHT AFTER, & THIS COPY IS FURTHER ENHANCED: SIGNED BY SEAMUS HEANEY. Effectively a limited edition because this was never reprinted. Black-and-white design on a metallic silver card cover, which is a little scuffed; monochrome photographs of both poets inside. A clear stiff plastic cover has been loosely fitted to this at some time, just like a clear jacket. I do not believe this was issued so protected, but it has certainly served the book well. No turned corners, no creases. This was published to coincide with readings by the poets in Northern Ireland. There are twelve poems by Heaney, fourteen by Mahon. SIGNED above the inside portrait of SH in black ink. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
