Toward a New Philosophy of Biology: Observations of an Evolutionist
Cambridge, MA: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1988. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. 563 pages. A collection of essays suggesting new philosophical underpinnings for the science of biology. The essays are revised from earlier publications and some appear here for the first time. First edition (first printing). Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light surface scuffing. This is a remarkable association copy between two of the great Darwinian evolutionists of the twentieth century. The book is inscribed, 'To Steve Gould, in friendship and admiration, Ernst.' Stephen Jay Gould was a college of Mayr's at Harvard and credits Mayr for inspiring his important first book, Phylogeny and Ontology: 'Ernst Mayr, in a passing comment, suggested I write this book'--p. vii. Mayr, in this book, cites Gould's work on 11 pages, as much as most any scientist. Gould called Mayr, 'the dean of modern Darwinians' (Leonardo's Mountain of Clams, p. 329). Books signed by Mayr are uncommon. Association copies of this caliber are rare.
