Notes: A reprint of this precursor to Malthus' work on population.
Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing). A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. This copy is inscribed by Montagu to the evolutionist and paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould: "For Steve, Affectionately from Ashley. 29 June 1981."
Montagu (born Israel Ehrenberg) was a humanist anthropologist and a public intellectual. A nice association between two noted scientists.
