Octavo size, 540 pp., signed by Stephen Jay Gould. The fifth volume in a series of essays, begun in 1974 in the pages of "Natural History" under the rubric "This View of Life." Professor Gould wrote "this volume is the best of the five, covering six years of writing; it presents the best, or rather the most integrated, thirty-five pieces from more than sixty choices." (from dust jacket flap). Some of the pieces in this book include "Dinomania, Bully for Brontosaurus", "Fads and Fallacies, The Case of the Creeping Fox Terrier Clone", and "Numbers and Probability, The Ant and the Plant". Stephen Jay Gould (1941-2002) was an American paleontologist, evolutionary biologist and historian of science, and was one of the most influential and widely read writers of popular science of his generation. Gould spent most of his career teaching at Harvard University and working at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Gould was known by the general public mainly from his 300 popular essays in the magazine Natural History, and his books written for a non-specialist audience. In April 2000, the US Library of Congress named him a "Living Legend".
