Stephen Jay Gould / Urchin in the Storm Essays About Books 1st ed Signed #2581
New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 1987. First edition (first printing). Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. This is an unusual copy as it is inscribed TO Gould, from the Russian-British historian and philosopher Isaiah Berlin: "To the wonderful Stephen Jay Gould--from his admiring ally/disciple; with deepest [?] and admiration. Isaiah Berlin. Oxford 19.7.91." Gould gave the first annual lecture at Oxford in a series named after Berlin in 1991 that continues to this day, perhaps giving rise to the occasion for this inscription. Berlin is one of the dedicatees of this book making this something like a dedication copy (or dedication-copy adjacent, anyway). Obtained 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.
