The Basis of Progressive Evolution
Chapel Hill: The University of North Carolina Press, (1969). First Edition. Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Near Fine. 150 pages. A college-level survey of twenty-years' progress in linking the genetic and chemical basis of biology to Darwinian evolution. Stebbins was one of the most important scholars and researchers in plant evolution. The New York Times obituary of Stebbins describes his role in linking genetics to evolution: 'This intellectual watershed, known as the evolutionary synthesis, has been described by Dr. Stephen Jay Gould, evolutionary biologist at Harvard University, as 'one of the half-dozen major scientific achievements in our century.' In his role in this seminal event, Dr. Stebbins is credited with bringing modern evolutionary thinking to the study of plants.' First edition (first printing), wrappers issue (also issued in hardcover). This is a major association copy, inscribed to Stephen Jay Gould, 'To Steve Gould, with my compliments. Ledyard Stebbins.' In his first book, Ontogeny and Phylogeny, Gould thanks Stebbins 'for his irresistable enthusiasm about all things and for convincing me about 'increasing precocity of gene action' at a crucial time.' Books signed by Stebbins are uncommon; association copies are very scarce.
