The Science & Philosophy of Edward Flanders Robb Ricketts
 
Scientific Books

The following list of scientific books represent a best estimate of what comprised the library collection of Edward Flanders Ricketts. The list was compiled based on the following sources 1) Those titles gifted to the Stanford University Library by Mrs. Edward F. Ricketts in 1948 (!). 2) The 3 x 5 bibliography cards filed as "Books" from Ed Ricketts bibliography card collection (@). 3) The titles referenced as comprising the library aboard the Western Flyer during the trip to the Sea of Cortez mentioned in the book, The Log of the Sea of Cortez, by John Steinbeck (^). 4) Those titles referenced in the book, Between Pacific Tides by Edward Flanders Ricketts and Jack Calvin  (&). 5) Those titles referenced within the publication Steinbeck's Reading by Robert J. DeMott which originate from a fifteen page "Personal Inventory of Books," Ed Ricketts began keeping after the fire of November 25, 1936 (#).  According to DeMott, the "Personal Inventory of Books," provides a detailed list of his library holdings, and indicates the date when replacement copies were accessioned (desiderata refers to books in the original collection which were not replaced).
