        ASIA: ASIAE NOVA DESCRIPTIO. CUM PRIVILEGIO.

      - This highly decorative first state of the map of Asia by Abraham Ortelius shows the Middle East, Russia, India, China, South East Asia with Indonesia and Philippines, New Guinea a part or Australia, with misprojection of Japan and very distinct Northeast Passage. This classic map was based upon a rare early map of Asia by Giacomo Gastaldi (c. 1500 - 1566) and geographical researches of a Kurdishhistorian and geographer Abu al-Fida (??? ???????; 1273 – 1331). Ortelius published it in his work Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, one of the most famous atlases of all times. This first edition of the map, which distinguishes itself from the second edition only by faint printed words ‘Cum Privilegio’ in the lower left corner and two names of places (Frarfana in th upper right corner, written with a capital letter, and the town Ara above Aden, which disappears in the second state) was published in the earliest editions of the atlas between 1570-1574. This map was issued in one of the first four Latin editions. References: Van der Broecke, 6. _______________________________________ Höchst dekorative Karte zeigt Asien. Herausgegeben in Theatrum Orbis Terrarum von Abraham. 1. Zustand (von 2), herausgegeben in einer lat. Ausgabe zwischen 150-1574. Abraham Ortelius (16.3.1527 in Antwerpen – 29.6. 1598 ebd.) war Geograph, Archäologe und Sammler, vor allem aber einer der erfolgreichsten Verleger des niederländischen Handels- und Druckzentrums Antwerpen in der zweiten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts. Seine herausragende Rolle im Bereich der Druckgraphik bzw. der Kartographie basiert vor allem auf seinem 1570 erschienenen Werk Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, das als der erster Atlas gehandelt wird und Ortelius zum Begründer der modernen Kartographie werden lässt. Ortelius entstammte einer von Augsburg in die südlichen Niederlande eingewanderten Familie. 1546, im Alter von 19 Jahren, wurde er hier alsafsetter van carten - als Kartenkolorist – in das Register der Lukasgilde von Antwerpen eingetragen. Zunächst als Kartenmaler tätig (u.a. bei Christoph Plantin (1520-1589)), widmet sich Ortelius spätestens ab den 1560er Jahren dem Buchhandel und dem Druck großformatiger Karten. Die erste namentlich von ihm verlegte Karte, eine 8-blättrige Wandkarte der Welt Typus Orbis Terrarum, ist auf das Jahr 1564 datiert. Im Mai 1570 erfolgte die Publikation seines zentralen Werks Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, bei dem es sich um eine umfangreiche Sammlung hochwertig produzierter Karten im einheitlichen Format handelt, die auf innovative Weise mit erklärenden Begleittexten versehen und in Buchform zusammengefasst worden sind. Das durch die Kombination von Text und Bild verkomplizierte Druckverfahren - hierzu mussten verschiedene bzw. verschieden schnell arbeitende Pressen eingesetzt werden – macht das Theatrum zu einem inhaltlich wie technisch anspruchsvollen Zeugnis der Buchdruckkunst sowie zu einer Gesamtschau des kartografischen Wissens am Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts. Zu Ehren seiner "Weltschau" wurde Ortelius zum Hofkartographen Philipp II. von Spanien (1527-1598) ernannt. Neben dem Theatrum gab Abraham Ortelius auch den Thesaurus Geographicus (1587) heraus, bei dem es sich um ein Register antiker und moderner geographischer Bezeichnungen handelt. In einer jüngeren Ausgabe dieses Werks (1596) behandelt Ortelius in einer kurzen Passage seine Theorie über die Kontinentaldrift, die als erster schriftlicher Beleg für die Grundlagen dieser modernen These und der daraus entstandenen Plattentektonik gilt, die faktisch erst im 20. Jahrhundert etabliert worden ist. Abgerundet wird das Oeuvre des humanistisch gebildeten Kartographen und Historikers durch Werke wie das Deorum Dearumque Capita (1573), eine auf numismatischen Studien basierende Antike Götterkunde, und das Aurei saeculi imago, sive Germanorum veterum vita (1596), ein Traktat über die Kultur der antiken Germanen. Die zentrale Position des Antwerpener Verlegers im europäischen Wissenschaftsdiskurs Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts wird durch

        Statutes and Ordinances of the Order of St. Michel; Renaissance illuminated manuscript on parchment

      RENAISSANCE ILLUMINATE MANUSCRIPT IN FRENCH ON PARCHMENT, France (probably Paris), c. 1500-1530 (perhaps c. 1523-1528). 265 x 185 mm. 40 folios, complete (collation, i7 [of 8, lacking 8, possibly an illuminated frontispiece, with no loss of text] ii-iv8 v6 vi3 [of 4, lacking 4, canceled with no loss of text]), some leaf and quire signatures, written in an elegant bâtarde script on 27 long lines (justification, 180 x 125 mm.), ruled in red ink with the top and bottom rules full across and with full-length single vertical bounding lines, red rubrics, one- to two-line initials in liquid gold on burgundy and blue grounds heightened with scrolling foliage, dots, and floral sprigs in liquid gold, six-line blue initial infilled and on a burgundy ground, both heightened with liquid gold scrolls (f. 33), added nineteenth-century flyleaf carefully copied in roman letter in black, red, and blue (possibly using stencils). BINDING: Nineteenth-century elaborately gilt-tooled black leather over pasteboards incorporating earlier purple velvet binding as center panels on the front and back covers, gilt-tooled spine with five raised bands, purple silk doublures. TEXT: This is a fine copy of the document that defined the practices and rules of the royal Order of St. Michel. Monarchical orders or royal orders in particular were created to assure the loyalty of the knights to the king by serving as an ingenious supplement to (or replacement for) the feudo-vassalic ties that once bound the leading members of the nobility to their sovereign. In addition, they were long important as expressions of the secular ideals of chivalry that were at the heart of the international court culture during the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. Founded by King Louis XI of France in 1469, the Order of St. Michel was founded in devotion to these ideals but also, more pragmatically, to serve as the French equivalent of the Burgundian Order of the Golden Fleece, founded in 1430. Its membership was initially restricted to thirty-six knights chosen from among the most powerful men in France, though by the sixteenth century the Order was growing less selective. The statutes for the new Order were closely modeled on the statutes of the Order of the Golden Fleece, originally containing sixty-six articles. The present manuscript follows the text of the version from 1476, which added articles sixty-seven to ninety-two. Written in an elegant script and adorned with illuminated initials, this example was probably copied at the Renaissance court of King Francis I. Although copies are not rare in public collections, they seldom come on the market. PROVENANCE: The layout, script, and decoration all support an origin in France, most likely in Paris, in the opening decades of the sixteenth century. The similarity of these aspects of the manuscript to those of copies of statutes now at UCLA (formerly our TM 49) and London, British Library, Harley MS 4485 suggests that it may have been one of the manuscripts documented as having been ordered by the court of Francis I, king of France (1515-1547), for distribution to knights of the Order, dated in documentary sources between 1523-1528. These manuscripts were illustrated by a Parisian artist named Etienne Collaud; the manuscript described here no longer includes an illuminated frontispiece, and therefore its connection to this group of manuscripts, although likely, is not certain. Belonged to the Barons Monson in Burton; their MS CLXVII. Probably acquired by William John Monson, 6th Baron Monson (1796-1862). CONDITION: Some spots on the first few leaves and small stains on the upper edges, cockled, but otherwise in excellent condition with wide and clean margins; binding in very good condition apart from small splits in the spine and scuffs to the velvet. Full description and photographs available (TM 742).

        Due trattati, uno intorno alle otto principali arti dell' oreficeria. L'altro in materia dell'arte della scultura; dove si veggono infiniti segreti nel lavorar le figure di marmo, & nel gettarle di bronzo.Florence, Valente Panizzi, Marco Peri, 1568. 4to. With the woodcut coat of arms of the Medici on the title-page, a woodcut printer's device at the end, 1 small and 36 large architectural historiated initials. 19th-century marbled-paper boards.

      Adams C-1240; Besterman, Old Art Books, p. 23; Cicognara 273; Honeyman 659; Schlosser 398-399; BMC STC Italian, p. 164. First edition of the treatises on the arts of the goldsmith and the sculptor by Benvenuto Cellini (1500-1571), one of the most important artists of Mannerism. Cellini divulges the wonderful secrets and methods of the goldsmith, designing medals, enamelling, minting coins, soldering, tinting diamonds, etc. and also the techniques of the Florentine sculptors of the `quattrocento', like those of Donatello who attacked the block directly without the use of large scale models. There is also a crucial passage on Michelangelo's sculptural technique: how he outlined the figure in charcoal on the block, made large scale clay models, and the kind of chisels and drills Michelangelo used. Oddly enough Cellini's treatises were not republished till 1731, nor translated until the 19th century. With an ownerships' inscription of Domenico Martinelli di Lucca on the second blank page, lacking a blank leaf, some slight foxing and a few marginal stains. A very good copy.

In the rare original dust jacket in exceptionally good condition. With essays by Robinson Jeffers, Merle Armitage, and Donald Bear. Illustrated with folio reproductions of fifty of Weston's photographs. "Though [50 Photographs] includes all of Weston's genres--landscapes, nudes, still lifes, and portraits--it is an unusual selection, more edgy than iconic... The overall effect... is to make visible the real legacy of Weston's work, the way it influenced so much of what would come after. The 50 photographs are followed by a portrait of Weston himself, taken by his son Cole in Point Lobos in 1946, in which the old man is shown wedged between boulders: alert, watchful, mobile, and as sound as stone" (David Levi-Strauss in The Book of 101 Books). Roth 128. Open Book 150. 

 New York: Duell Sloan & Pearce, 1947. Folio, original cloth, original dust jacket. Owner bookplate and stamp on front free endpaper; owner stamp also on rear pastedown and at bottom of limitation page. Cloth very clean; dust jacket with light edgewear.

        Revelationes. With: Vita abreviata S. Birgittae. - Hymnus ad Beatam Birgittam.

      With foreword by Johannes de Turrecremata and Matthias de Suecia. Published by Florian Waldorf. Nürnberg: A. Koberger, 21. IX. 1500. With 59, 7 full-page woodcuts & 52 smaller cuts assembled to form 10 more full-page illustrations, the woodcuts colored by a contemporary hand in red/orange and yellow. Initials in same colour. 57 lines & headline; double column. Folio. 312 leaves. Bound in contemporary dyed halfleather with renewed wooden boards and clasps. 31,5 x 22 cm.. First Nürnberger edition, the most important Scandinavian religious work in the late Middle Ages. The 1500 edition produced in Nuremberg by one of the giants of the early printing period, Anton Koberger, is notable for the likely participation of another famous native of Nuremberg, the artist Albrecht Durer (1471-1528), who was Koberger's godson. It is generally accepted that Durer at least designed the illustrative woodcuts, even if another hand performed the actual cutting of the blocks. Compared with other Northern European book illustrations of the period, the Birgitta woodcuts show a readiness to move away from strict geometric patterning towards a more naturalistic grouping of figures and to endow these figures with individual expressions. Durer had visited Venice in the mid-1490s and been deeply influenced by the humanism of Italian Renaissance painters. Thematicly and compositionally the illustrations are similar to the Lübeck edition from 1492.Birgitta, or Bridget, was a Swedish mystic, born in 1303 and married, at age thirteen, to the wealthy nobleman Ulf Gudmarrson, to whom she bore eight children. Having experienced religious visions since early adulthood, she devoted herself wholly to the worship of God and imitation of Christ after her husband's death in 1344, establishing a convent in the town of Vadstena by Lake Vattern. In 1350 she moved to Rome, where she spent the rest of her life, apart from a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in her last years. She died in 1373 and was canonised by Pope Boniface IX in 1391. A blend of theological meditation, biblical lore and spiritual autobiography, her 'Revelations' were dictated to her confessors over a period of more than twenty years.Hain-C. 3205

      . With foreword by Johannes de Turrecremata and Matthias de Suecia. Published by Florian Waldorf. Nürnberg: A. Koberger, 21. IX. 1500. With 59, 7 full-page woodcuts & 52 smaller cuts assembled to form 10 more full-page illustrations, the woodcuts colored by a contemporary hand in red/orange and yellow. Initials in same colour. 57 lines & headline; double column. Folio. 312 leaves. Bound in contemporary dyed halfleather with renewed wooden boards and clasps. 31,5 x 22 cm. * First Nürnberger edition, the most important Scandinavian religious work in the late Middle Ages. <br>The 1500 edition produced in Nuremberg by one of the giants of the early printing period, Anton Koberger, is notable for the likely participation of another famous native of Nuremberg, the artist Albrecht Durer (1471-1528), who was Koberger's godson. It is generally accepted that Durer at least designed the illustrative woodcuts, even if another hand performed the actual cutting of the blocks. Compared with other Northern European book illustrations of the period, the Birgitta woodcuts show a readiness to move away from strict geometric patterning towards a more naturalistic grouping of figures and to endow these figures with individual expressions. Durer had visited Venice in the mid-1490s and been deeply influenced by the humanism of Italian Renaissance painters.

        Illuminated leaf from a Book of Hours

      Paris or Rouen: circa 1475-, 1500. Illuminated leaf, 215 x 139 mm., with a panel border on both sides of the leaf composed of blue and gold acanthus and coloured flowers and leaves on shaped grounds of liquid gold, three 2-line initials in pink with white tracery, naturalistic branch line fillers, 24 lines of text in gothic script; slight marginal stain otherwise in fine condition. A beautifully illuminated leaf from a luxurious fifteenth-century French Book of Hours. This leaf is from the central text of the Book of Hours, the "Little Office of the Blessed Virgin" (or Hours of the Virgin), which was modelled on the Divine Office and represents a shorter version of the devotions performed at the eight canonical hours of the day.The panel border on each face of the page is composed of blue and gold acanthus leaves alternating with mauve, red, blue and white flowers on shaped grounds of liquid gold. The text contains three 2-line initials in white on pink grounds, one single-line initial in liquid gold on red and eleven line-fillers in similar colours, including some naturalistic branch motifs.The delicate initials suggest that it was executed in either Paris or Rouen, while the unusual geometric forms picked out in liquid gold in the margins, clearly show this to be work dating from the late 1400s.

        Yeast Biotechnology Diversity and Applications

      Springer. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 744 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.3in. x 1.3in.This book updates the knowledge that we have accumulated over the last couple of decades on yeast research. The yeasts are eukaryotic unicellular microfungi that are widely distributed in the natural environment, and can also be found in more specialized or extreme environments, such as low temperatures, low oxygen availabilities and water potential. Approximately 1500 species of yeasts belonging to over 100 genera have been described so far. Although the vast majority of yeasts are beneficial to human life, only a few are opportunistic human pathogens. Yeasts play an important role in the food chain, and in the carbon, nitrogen and sulphur cycles. In addition, yeasts (e. g. Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Hansenula polymorpha, Pichia pastoris) are now being used to express foreign genes for producing human proteins of pharmaceutical interest. A landmark in biotechnology was reached in 1996 with the completion of the sequencing of the entire genome of S. cerevisiae and the genome sequencing of three more yeasts (Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Candida albicans and Cryptococcus neofromans) have recently been completed. Saccharomyces cerevisiae has now become a central player in the development of an entirely new approach to biological research systems biology. The products of modern yeast biotechnology impinges on many commercially important sectors including foods, beverages, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, industrial enzymes, agriculture and environmental bioremediation. This book is aimed at bringing together and updating the latest information on the diversity of yeasts under natural and extreme environments, their ecology and adaptations, taxonomy and systematics, physiology and biochemistry, as well as their molecular features and biotechnological applications. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN, Momence,IL, Commerce,GA.

Provenance: Per Hierta, inscription in pen, in Swedish, on front flyleaf; [Otto Smith, of Karlshamn, Sweden], sale, Basel, Moirandat, 24 October 2014, lot 31.*** only edition, a very rare survival. This guide to the proper forms of epistolary address, written mainly for German scribes but also for any literate writer of German, contains correct phrases for the openings and closings of letters to personages of rank. The first half is devoted to the clergy, providing salutations for the Pope, the Eastern Patriarchs, the ?"seven Cardinal Archbishops,?" the Metropolitan of Rhodes, and on down through the clerical ranks. Prioresses and nuns are included. The secular section commences with the Holy Roman Emperor, on f. D3v, and concludes with simple burghers and their wives, and familial greetings, from wives writing to their husbands and from parents to their children (and vice-versa). The last page contains a handy table of political geography, listing the four principal royal realms: Rome, France, Poland and Hungary, the three clerical electors (Churfürsten): Mainz, Cologne, and Trier, the four upper Dukedoms: Burgundy, Bavaria, Braunschweig, and Austria, and so on. This handbook answered a need. The Gesamtkatalog der Wiegendrucke lists 14 earlier editions of a different, shorter text, in German and Low German, the earliest from 1487, all surviving in a mere handful of copies. Those much shorter editions, in 6 or 8 leaves, are in reverse prder, commencing with the secular ranks, and have differently worded salutations. Designated by the Gesamtkatalog the Grosses Titelbüchlein (Great Book of Titles), this longer edition is also the only one with humanist content, including the prefatory poem by Filippo Beroaldo on the charges of the scribe, with a rhymed German translation (by the printer?), as well as a poem in Greek, extracted from Ausonius Epist. VIII (fol. 3r-v). Wolfgang Schenk (d. 1510) was a graduate of the University of Erfurt, and that city?'s second printer. Active from ca. 1499 to 1507, he disposed of a good range of printing types, and was the first German printer to regularly use Greek types. GW lists 9 copies of this edition, this copy included, the others being: Herzog August Bibliothek, Bavarian State Library, Bamberg Stadtbibliothek (imperfect), Berlin SB (lacking last leaf), Dresden, Leipzig, British Library, and Vatican. There appear to be only two copies in American libraries of any of the 15th-century editions of these handbooks: Yale holds a copy of the Peter Berg, ca. 1488/89 edition (Goff B-1272), and a copy of an anonymous edition, identified as Memmingen: Albrecht Kunne, ca. 1493, is held by the Morgan Library (Goff B-1272a).

        Salvator Mundi

      Bruges: 1500. Single leaf, image measures 98 x 68 cms with small margins, painted on vellum and heightened with gold, verso blank, framed and glazed in a standing frame. Slight smudge to the tip of the nose, otherwise in good condition. A lovely, haunting image of Christ the Savior, holding an orb of translucent crystal and making the traditional gesture of blessing with his right hand. ?'Salvator Mundi?", or Savior of the World, is a subject in iconography depicting Christ with his right hand raised in blessing and his left hand holding an orb surmounted by a cross, known as a globus cruciger. The latter symbolizes the Earth, and the whole composition has strong eschatological undertones. The theme was made popular by Northern painters such as Jan van Eyck, Hans Memling, and Albrecht DŸrer. There are also several versions of the theme attributed to Titian, notably the one in the Hermitage Museum. In France, Leonardo da Vinci painted the subject for Louis XII of France between 1506 and 1513. Christopher de Hamel writes: ?'Your leaf was illuminated in Bruges around 1500, by the workshop which produced Vatican Vat.Lat. 10293, Brussels Bibl.Roy. IV.237, Milan Ambrosiana, Ms S.P. 11.189, and others with distinctive architectual borders, described in B. Brinkmann, Offizium der Madonna der Codex Vat.Lat.10293 und Verwandte Kleine StudenenbŸcher mit ArchitecturenbordŸren (Zurich, 1992), esp. p.47. The same workshop illuminated a Book of Hours from the Crawford of Lakelands library, sold at Christie's, 26 June 1991, in which folio 14v is described by them as "Salvator Mundi, Christ holding the globe against blue ground, within golden gothic architecture", which is close enough to yours to make me wonder if it is the same miniature, now removed. The measurements there were given as 97 x 65mm.?"

"Nato a Palermo il 7 dicembre 1810, Francesco Ferrara ebbe una formazione da giovane aristocratico. Studiò dai padri gesuiti e intraprese il corso di laurea in medicina che poi abbandonò per dedicarsi agli studi economici e sociali. Nel 1833 entrò alla direzione centrale di statistica di Palermo e nel 1836 fondò il «Giornale di Statistica». Nel 1844 divenne segretario della Camera di commercio di Palermo e diede vita al «Giornale di Commercio». Nello stesso anno avanzò la sua candidatura al concorso per la cattedra di economia politica all'Università di Palermo, ma poi si ritirò a favore dell'amico Raffaele Busacca. Per la sua attività antiborbonica fu arrestato nel gennaio 1848, e liberato dal popolo palermitano quando la rivoluzione era ormai vittoriosa. Entrato a far parte del comitato rivoluzionario partecipò alla commissione che doveva preparare l'atto di convocazione del parlamento di Sicilia e venne eletto deputato alla Camera, sostenendo un programma costituzionalista e federalista. Prese parte alla commissione diplomatica inviata a Torino per offrire al duca di Genova la corona siciliana. A Torino, una volta soffocata la rivoluzione siciliana, si trasferì in esilio. Qui ottenne nel 1848 la cattedra di economia politica e collaborò a vari giornali: «Il Risorgimento» di Cavour, «La croce di Savoia», «Il Parlamento», «L'Economista». Sempre a Torino curò la pubblicazione delle prime due serie della Biblioteca dell'Economista che uscì per i tipi della casa editrice Pomba. Nel 1858, per motivi disciplinari, fu costretto ad abbandonare la cattedra torinese e si trasferì all'università di Pisa. Rientrato in Sicilia dopo l'impresa dei Mille, si battè per l'autonomia siciliana e prese parte ai lavori del Consiglio straordinario di Stato per la Sicilia. Nel 1861 tentò di farsi eleggere deputato al Parlamento italiano ma senza successo. Avvicinatosi a Quintino Sella ottenne la nomina a direttore delle imposte e a consigliere della Corte dei Conti. Nel 1868 fondò a Firenze la Società di Economia Politica e nel 1874 la società Adamo Smith. Nel 1868 fu nominato direttore della nuova Scuola Superiore di Commercio di Venezia. Riprese la pubblicazione dell'«Economista», organo della società Adamo Smith. Nel 1867 fu nominato ministro delle finanze del governo Rattazzi battendosi per la vendita dei beni ecclesiastici e l'abolizione del corso forzoso. Si dimise dopo pochi mesi, partecipando intensamente, spesso tra i banchi dell'opposizione, all'attività parlamentare. Fu nominato Senatore del Regno nel 1881. Morì a Venezia nel 1900" (R.Marchionatti dal sito torinoscienza).

        78-year-old Ronald Reagan, who had just left the White House as the oldest serving U.S. President, shows his gratitude to God, telling his 96-year-old friend he?s ?so glad to hear how well you are feeling. I am too. It looks like we must have lived right. But then we could have some one up there looking after us ??

      "Autograph Letter Signed ?Love Dutch? on both sides of his 6.25? x 4.25? card with a gilt presidential seal at top center above ?Ronald Reagan? engraved in black. With original 6.5? x 4.5? envelope, engraved return address at top left and Reagan?s engraved franking signature at top right, slit open at top. Not postmarked. Addressed by Reagan to ?Mrs. Peter MacArthur / Lake Worth Towers Apt. 507 / 1500 Luceran Ave. / Lake Worth Fla. / 33460.? Back flap imprinted with the gilt presidential seal. Fine condition. Mrs. Peter MacArthur was 96-year-old Lydia Hupfer ?Hup? McArthur (1893-1995), widow of the man who had given Reagan his first job after college. Peter MacArthur was the program director at radio station WOC in Davenport, Iowa, which shared its frequency with WHO Des Moines. In 1932, MacArthur gave 21-year-old recent Eureka College grad Ronald ?Dutch? Reagan a sports announcer?s job at WOC. In 1937, sportscaster Reagan went to the Chicago Cubs spring training camp in southern California to do play-by-play for WHO Des Moines. Impressed by his confidence and good looks, an agent arranged a screen test for the 26-year-old sports announcer at Warner Bros. Reagan signed a seven-year contract and moved to California. But he never forgot Pete and Hup MacArthur whom he affectionately called ?Ma? and ?Pa? (?Maw & Paw,? ?Mom & Pop?). He sent Christmas cards and letters to them on a regular basis from 1938 until 1948 when Pete died, continuing to correspond with Hup until she died in 1995 at 101. In full, ?Dear Hup Here is that ?wee note? you mentioned and thanks for word about Myrtle. It?s hard to reconcile his message with the Myrtle you & I remember. I tried to call her but the number I have is no longer her?s and the lady who answered said she had calls from others trying to reach Myrtle. I?m combing the files here to see if I have her address or number but I?m afraid I?m not going to be successful. I had hoped to talk to her or at least write but I don?t have number or address. ?I?m so glad to hear how well you are feeling. I am too. It looks like we must have lived right. But then we could have some one up there looking after us. ?Nancy and I are off to Japan in a few days. Believe it or not they?ve hired me to make some speeches. Well we?ll be there 10 days and be back here before the end of the month. Nancy sends her love & so do I. Forgive my writing ?" I?m doing this is a car. Love Dutch.? Myrtle was one of Hup?s friends who knew Dutch when he worked at her husband?s station, WOC Davenport."
