Metamagical Themas

New York: Basic Books, 1995.

First edition, first printing. A lovely association copy, signed and inscribed by Douglas R. Hofstadter to Stephen Jay Gould and his family, "To Steve, Deborah, Jesse and Ethan with much fondness from Doug April, 1985." Bound in publisher's blue cloth with spine lettered in gilt. Fine in a Near Fine price-clipped dust jacket with light edge wear and several tiny nicks.

Hofstadter is a cognitive science professor and popular author, who won the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award (then called the American Book Award) for his book, Godel, Escher and Bach. While not precisely in the same field as Gould, the two scientists ran in similar social circles, and their books remain among the most widely read among modern science writing. Item #140938734
