Stanford gets Steven J. Gould Library

My Grandmother (who owns thousands of books herself) would love this about Steven J. Gould (one of the great evolution scientists of the 20th century):

Gould owned approximately 1,500 rare, antiquarian books, some dating back to the late 1400s. His library of more contemporary books numbers roughly 8,000 volumes. Although the total number of papers has yet to be determined, the librarians working on the collection estimate they will stretch more than 500 linear feet—a good deal longer than a football field.

  1. The heart of your writing whilst appearing reasonable at first, did not sit properly with me after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a very short while. I still have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one would do nicely to help fill in those gaps. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I will surely end up being impressed.
