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 tog … [Click Below for Full Description]

FRANCE] FRENCH ILLUMINATOR
circa 1475-, Paris or Rouen 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.

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.

WESTON, EDWARD
New York: Duell Sloan & Pearce. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. FIRST EDITION, one of only 1500 copies initialed by Weston. With essays by Robinson Jeffers, Merle Armitage, and Donald Bear. Illustrated with folio reproductions of fifty of Weston's photographs. In the rare original dust jacket. "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. Book in outstanding condition: interior pristine and cloth bright and clean with only a few tiny spots of wear. Rare fragile dust jacket price-clipped, with tape reinforcement on verso and a little bit of chipping to edges. An extremely good copy of a notoriously difficult book to find in collectible condition.

ROCHA PITA, Sebastião da.
Alden & Landis 730/211; Borba de Moraes, p. 678; Rodriques 2112; Sabin 72300; cf. Boxer, The Golden Age of Brazil, p. 160. First edition of the first general history of Brazil, covering the period 1500 to 1724. Though Robert Southey in the widely quoted preface to his History of Brazil dismissed the work as meagre and inaccurate, "the Historia does not deserve this censure. For all its Gongoric turgidity, it contains some valuable and authentic information, being on some points more fair-minded and accurate than Southey's better written but more prejudiced work" (Boxer). Sebastião Rocha Pita (1660-1738) was a Brazilian historian and member of the Royal Academy of Portuguese History. He based his history on Jesuit chronicles and a variety of other sources, and included noteworthy information on Brazil's foundation and its successive governors. He also includes several references to gold, silver and salpeter mines, and a short note on pirates. "This first edition is becoming rare, and is much sought after by Brazilians" (Borba de Moraes).One leaf with small hole in foot margin, one leaf with tear, some insignificant water stains, binding slightly worn, front board with some wormholes, otherwise in very good condition.

A HANDSOMELY AND PROFUSELY ILLUMINATED HIGH QUALITY VELLUM MANUSCRIPT BOOK OF HOURS IN LATIN AND FRENCH
Northern France, probably Paris, ca, 1500. n. Hardcover. A Complete Book of Hours Associated with Jean Pichore,With 13 Large and 39 Small Miniatures. 184 x 127 mm (7 1/4 x 5"). 129 leaves, COMPLETE, written out in a very clean, rounded book hand (combining elements of the gothic and bâtarde). In an appealing period French calf binding with very elaborate strapwork designs on both covers (rebacked in the 20th century using original portions of the spine, new endpapers). With 24 small double calendar miniatures (the labor of the month and zodiac sign for each month within separate gilt borders but tangent to each other on the recto of each calendar leaf), 15 additional small miniatures showing the Virgin and Child, the Evangelists in the Gospel lessons, and then various saints in the Suffrages, and 13 FULL-PAGE ARCH-TOPPED MINIATURES accompanied by particularly lavish full borders of brushed gold and much acanthus and floral decoration. The gilt on the binding slightly rubbed or dulled, isolated trivial soiling, smudges, or other blemishes internally, but IN REMARKABLY FINE CONDITION, the paint and glittering gold virtually as they were at the time the manuscript was produced, and with consistently comfortable margins. In a very appealing contemporary binding and exceptionally well preserved, this is an excellent example of a complete mainstream Parisian Book of Hours produced by a highly skilled workshop at around the close of the first decade of the 16th century.

c. 1300-1500. Art. Painting size: 14" x 14"; Frame size: 21" x 21"; This painting has cracklature, please see images. There are no holes, tears, or other damage to the canvas or painting and is in very good condition for its age. It is in a modern frame. This painting had been a larger painting originally. The actual painting wraps around the top and bottom of the stretcher and the top and bottom of the painting were trimmed off at the edge of the back of the stretcher. On each side of the stretcher, a piece of early 20th century canvas has been professionally added to each side to allow enough canvas to secure to the sides of the stretcher without cutting off more of the painting. By looking at the back side of the painting and carefully pushing the canvas away from the stretcher, one can see the added piece of canvas which was added in the 20th century. Because the top and bottom of the painting had been cut off, and because this is clearly a professional restretching and mounting to a later stretcher, the painting presumably had damage and was trimmed to make it a displayable painting. Close up photos of what I have described are available upon request. .

Tempus Libri. New;. Hardcover. <p>A priceless manuscript from the Early Middle Ages, it dates back to around 860 in Tours (France). It is written in Latin. It contains 222 folios (444 pages) measuring 270x168 mm. The evangeliary is written in uncial script (Latin alphabet of capital letters) with the headings written in Roman capitals. Rubrication is used in the manuscript, and it contains some marginalia. Parts of the text, some of the headings, and the illuminations are decorated with gold. </p><p>It contains four figural illuminations of the evangelists St. Matthew (with the symbol of an angel) , St. Mark (with the symbol of a lion) , St. Luke (with the symbol of an ox) , and St. John the Evangelist (with the symbol of an eagle). As for the style, it is a pure example of the Ottonian style, the pictures of the evangelists are an early work of the most famous Ottonian painter, Master of the Registrum Gregorii. Originally, these were presumably separate leaves, bound into an older codex later. The quality of the painting is exceptional, the rendering highly sophisticated. Purple background is often used in the text, painted over with vermilion. Inscriptions in gold are written over such background. At some places, green background is also used, besides the purple. </p><p>The covers and binding of the manuscript are supposedly of Czech origin, from around 1500. The front is covered in red velvet, and richly decorated. There are four dominant gilded figures in high relief.

Henry III, count of Nassau-Dillenburg-Dietz (1483-1538).
Tournehem (Pas-de-Calais), 20. II. 1500. - Oblong 8vo (106 x 162 mm). 1 p., address panel to verso. In French, to the Knights of the Golden Fleece. In 1499 Henry’s uncle, count Engelbert II, invited him to the Burgundian Netherlands as his heir. On the death of his uncle in 1504, Henry inherited the Nassau possessions in the Netherlands, including the wealthy lordship of Breda in the duchy of Brabant. He was an important confidant of the young Emperor Charles V, serving as his chamberlain and as ambassador to Francis I. In this short letter Henry acknowledges receipt of a letter from the Knights of the Toison d’Or, via Maistre Laurent du Blioul ("greffier" or registrar of the order), to whom he has rendered a report and he declares himself at their service. The address panel gives "Les ch[eva]l[ie]rs confreres de lordre de la thoison dor." The Order of the Golden Fleece had been founded in 1430 by Philip III, Duke of Burgundy to celebrate his marriage to the Portuguese princess Infanta Isabella of Portugal, daughter of King John I of Portugal. It became one of the most powerful European chivalric orders and exists to this day. Henry of Nassau was elected to the Order in 1505. - Old dampstaining, slight fraying at right-hand margin, just touching one letter, left-hand margin cut close, just affecting flourish of initial "T" and one other letter, neat paper repair/reinforcement to all margins at verso. - Provenance: Charavay, Paris.
