        On the optical deportment of the atmosphere. Offprints

      London, 1876. 1st edition. <p>Precursor of Fleming&#39;s work on Penicillin</p><p>Tyndall, John (1820-93). The optical deportment of the atmosphere in relation to the phenomena of putrefaction and infection. Offprint from Phil. Trans. 166 (1876). [2] [27]-74pp. Text illustrations. [With] Further researches on the deportment and vital persistence of putrefactive and infective organisms from a physical point of view. Offprint from ibid. 167 (1877). [2] 149-206pp. Text illustrations. Together 2 offprints, 4to. London: Trubner & Co., 1876-77. 295 x 235 mm. Original printed wrappers, very slightly chipped. Light marginal browing, but fine. Boxed. <p><p>First Separate Editions. Garrison-Morton 1932 (first paper). Tyndall approached bacteriology by way of physics: during his researches on radiant heat, he had been greatly impressed by the difficulty of removing the particles that were floating in the atmosphere. He later began to focus his attention on these atmospheric particles, publishing these two important memoirs in the Philosophical Transactions; they were later collected, along with other relevant papers and lectures, in his Essays on the Floating-Matter of the Air (1881). The first of these memoirs described his experiments with a hermetically sealed chamber in which the atmospheric dust had been allowed to settle; sterilized infusions protected within this chamber remained uninfected for months, while similar infusions exposed to air all showed bacterial growth. </p><p>Tyndall pursued these researches further in his second memoir, demonstrating that only a small amount of atmospheric dust was required for contamination, and testing the limits of heat resistance of the infecting bacteria. As bacteria pass through a thermoresistant latent stage as well as an active one, Tyndall devised a method of discontinuous boiling ("Tyndallization") to render infusions completely sterile. Tyndall&#39;s researches, along with those of Pasteur, dealt the final blow to the doctrine of spontaneous generation.</p><p> Tyndall also performed pioneering research leading to antibiotics by observing the bactericidal effect of molds-in particular the selective bacteria-inhibiting effect of Penicillium and the resistance of Ps. pyocyanea to it. His results are discussed in the first offprint listed above. Bulloch, pp. 109-117. </p>

        Etudes sur la biere, ses maladies, causes qui les provoquent, proc&#142;d&#142; pour la rendre inalt&#142;rable, avec une th&#142;orie nouvelle de la fermentation.

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1876. - In this work, Pasteur "described a new and perfected method of preparing pure yeast [and] emphasized that yeast occasionally required small quantities of oxygen in order to retain its 'youth' and its capacity to germinate in oxygen-free environments. Having now achieved a new appreciation for the importance of oxygen in brewing, and especially the advantages of aerated wort, he insisted only that air should be carefully limited and freed of foreign germs rather than entirely eliminated" (DSB). Octavo. viii, 387, [4, ads] pp. Twelve lithographic plates, woodcuts in text. Contemporary or slightly later quarter red calf over marbled boards, rubbed at extremities. A little light foxing. Inscribed on the half-title to Pasteur's nephew, J. Vichot, with "affectionate remembrances, L. Pasteur." This book has been cut down slightly for binding, and portions of several letters in the inscription are shaved. Otherwise very good. First edition of Pasteur's groundbreaking book on fermentation. Though lacking the ads, which are an indication of state, this book has the scarce ads for Pasteur's Etudes sur la maladie des vers a soie (1870) at the rear. Garrison and Morton 2485.

        The Theory of Color in its Relation to Art and Art-Industry.

      Boston L. Prang 1876 - Octavo. xxxiii, 274pp., + thirteen plates. American edition, revised and enlarged by the author. With an introduction by Edward C. Pickering, a professor of Physics at MIT. Illustrated throughout with many woodcuts, as well as the thirteen chromolithograph plates. The first plate depicts the spectra of sunlight and color pigments, and the second plate shows Bezold's versions of color wheels. Other plates illustrate the illusion of how colors appear to change when juxtaposed against other colors. Six of the plates have text printed in black on paper of various colors, with white tissue guards. When overlaid with the tissue, the black lettering appears to take on tinges of color. Bezold was a physicist and meteorologist working at the Royal Polytechnic School in Munich, and his approach to color theory was intended to be practical for artists and those working in applied arts. Many of his examples are drawn from the decorative arts throughout history, especially from textiles and ornamental mosaics. According to "A Color Bibliography" by Robert L. Herbert, published in the Yale University Library Gazette, "Bezold represents the generation beyond Maxwell and Helmholz, when the distinction between color-light and color-pigment was at last clearly understood in the scientific world." Bound in original light brown cloth, gilt-titled to spine. First signature slightly loose, some wear to spine ends, else fine. (Yale University Library Gazette 49, No. 1, July) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
