        Die Entwickelung von Ascaris megalocephala mit besonderer Rücksicht auf die Kernverhältnisse.

      . Jena, Verlag von Gustav Fischer, 1889, Folio, 48 pp., 6 Abb., 6 lithfarb. Tafeln mit je einer Seite Tafelerklärungen, feiner Halbleinenband mit marmorierten Deckelbezügen im Stil der Zeit; St.a.Tit.. Erste Ausgabe des Abdruck aus der Festschrift zum siebzigsten Geburtstag von Carl Kupffer! - Mit der Entdeckung der Keimbahn bei Ascaris traf Boveri zunächst auf ein seit mehreren Jahrzehnten diskutiertes Problem. Schon in den sechziger Jahren hatten Weismann, Metschnikoff und Leuckart in der Entwicklung des Insekteneies an dessen einem Pol die "Urgeschlechtszellen" vorgefunden und festgestellt, daß aus ihnen sämtliche Spermien oder Eier hervorgehen. Auf diese Beobachtungen hatten Weismann 1885 und andere Forscher die "Keimbahntheorie" gegründet. Sie besagt, daß das Keimzellenmaterial ganz allgemein vom Ei in ununterbrochener Linie durch die Entwicklung des Individuums hindurch bis zur Bildung der Geschlechtszellen führt und dabei vom Soma unabhängig bleibt. Diese Annahme hatte eine stammesgeschichtlich sehr wichtige Konsequenz, die vor allem von Weismann mit großer Schärfe herausgearbeitet wurde. Wenn die gleichsam ruhende Keimbahn und die somatischen, funktionierenden Organe so unabhängig voneinander bleiben, dann ist eine Vererbung somatisch erworbener Eigenschaften nicht denkbar. - Für diese Keimbahnlehre mußten Boveris Untersuchungen grundlegende Beweisstücke werden, denn vermöge der Diminution ließen sich bei Ascaris Keimbahn und somatische Entwicklung mit einer vorher nicht bekannten Klarheit Zelle für Zelle verfolgen. Insbesondere ist die große Untersuchung "Die Entwicklung von Ascaris megalocephala mit besonderer Rücksicht auf die Kernverhältnisse" von 1899 eine der hervorragendsten Arbeiten auf diesem Felde geblieben, von Boveri seinem ehemaligen Lehrer, dem Anatomen C. von Kupffer, gewidmet, unter dessen Leitung er einst seine Dissertation ausgeführt hatte. Es sind ihr mustergültige Abbildungen beigegeben, in denen sich Boveris ganze Liebe und Sorgfalt in morphologischen Dingen offenbart. - Der Diminutionsvorgang bei Ascaris stellte jedoch noch ein weiteres Problem, das im Kreuzungspunkt von Embryologie und Vererbungsforschung liegt: das Problem der erbungleichen Kernteilung und, in Zusammenhang damit, dasjenige der embryonalen Differenzierung. Jedes Ei entwickelt sich sehr rasch durch Zellteilungen zu einem vielzelligen Körper, dessen Zellen zunächst noch sehr ähnlichen Typus haben. Dann setzt die Differenzierung ein. Die einen Zellen entwickeln sich zu Muskelzellen, andere zu Darmzellen, noch andere zu Nervenzellen usw. Sie werden verschieden, sowohl im Bau ihres Plasmas als auch im Typus ihrer Kerne. - Sucht man nach den Ursachen dieser Differenzierung, so steht man vor einer paradoxen Situation. Die Vermehrung der Zellen, eine der Grundlagen der Embryonalentwicklung, ist an den Mechanismus der Kernteilung gebunden, und dieser Mechanismus sorgt dafür, daß alle Zellen den gleichen Chromosomenbestand - denjenigen des befruchteten Eies - beibehalten. Wie ist dann, da die Chromosomen Erbträger sind, eine Entwicklung zu verschiedenen Zelltypen möglich? Müssen nicht, damit die Zellen sich verschieden differenzieren können, zunächst die Erbfaktoren verschieden verteilt werden? - In der Tat hatte Weismann schon 1885 gefordert, daß sich die Kernsubstanz, d. h. die Chromosomen, gesetzmäßig während der Ontogenese verändert. Die einfachste Annahme wäre die, "daß sich bei jeder Kernteilung das spezifische Plasma des Kerns (d. h. die Chromosomen) in zwei ihrem Wesen nach ungleiche Hälften teilte, so daß dann auch der Zellkörper, dessen Charakter ja durch den Kern bestimmt wird, umgeprägt würde". Weismann erkannte an, daß die Beobachtungen Straßburgers und van Benedens für eine identische und nicht für eine ungleiche Chromosomenteilung sprachen. Doch habe Straßburger "wohl die Sicherheit der Beobachtung überschätzt", und gegenüber van Beneden dürfe man doch nicht vergessen, "daß das, was wir da sehen, nicht die Molekularstruktur des Kernplasmas ist". Aber auch die große Chromosomenarbeit Boveris von 1888 stand gegen Weismanns Hypothese. Das Differenzierungsproblem blieb also ungelöst. Hier setzte Boveris weitere Analyse ein. Die Diminution bei Ascaris konnte ein Kronzeuge für oder wider die autonome erbungleiche Teilung der Chromosomen werden und war auch schon von zur Strassen im Sinne Weismanns gedeutet worden. - Boveri dagegen suchte die Ursache für die Diminution im Protoplasma. Er hatte schon 1899 darauf hingewiesen, daß doppelt befruchtete Eier die Möglichkeit einer Entscheidung geben müßten, aber erst 1904 "eine Anzahl entscheidender Fälle zu Gesicht bekommen"." Baltzer, pp.148-152

        ENGLISH ODES

      [Printed by Charles Whittingham at the Chiswick Press for] Kegan Paul, Trench, & Co, London 1889 - 165 x 105 mm (6 1/2 x 4 1/8"). xxi, [i], 259 pp. VERY PRETTY TURQUOISE CRUSHED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT, BY RIVIERE & SON (stamp-signed on front doublure), covers with wide, swirling gilt frame featuring flowers and broad-leaf plants on a thick bed of stippling, raised bands, spine gilt in densely stippled compartments with tulip and acanthus leaves stamped in relief, INTRICATELY GILT MAROON MOROCCO DOUBLURES with large strapwork mandorla and curling azured leafy vines, maroon moiré silk endleaves, top edge gilt. With wood-engraved frontispiece with tissue guard. Spine slightly darkened, just a hint of wear to front joint, edges of leaves faintly browned, one leaf with light dampstain to fore margin, but all of these imperfections trivial, and otherwise a fine copy--clean and fresh internally, and in a glistening binding showing almost no signs of use. This is a fine piece of work by Riviere that is appropriately tooled in light of its contents, a collection of English odes selected by Edmund Gosse. Just as the works included here represent a traditional poetic form that finds its roots in the classical world, everything about the gilt embellishment on the binding suggests the archaic--from the acanthus leaves (so prevalent in the decoration of Medieval manuscripts) on the cover to the azured vegetation and strapwork panelling (so frequently seen in 16th century bindings) on the striking doublures. Although he never attended university, the English poet, author, and critic Sir Edmund William Gosse (1849-1928) began his career as assistant librarian at the British Museum. From 1884 to 1890, he lectured in English literature at Trinity College, Cambridge, and in the former year, his successful lecture tour in America earned him considerable fame. A collection of works by Spenser, Milton, Dryden, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, Keats, and others, "English Odes" was originally published in 1881, was met with approval, and was reprinted several times.

An unrecorded advance "proof" engraved plate of the design by Charles Conder measuring 190 x 135mm. Verso blank.

The publisher's imprint at the foot of the catalogue's cover is absent on the proof plate, which is printed in grey/black ink on wove laid paper as opposed to the greenish tint ink used on the subsequent catalogue.

        ENGLISH ODES

      London: [Printed by Charles Whittingham at the Chiswick Press for] Kegan Paul, Trench, & Co, 1889. n. Hardcover. 165 x 105 mm (6 1/2 x 4 1/8"). xxi, [i], 259 pp. VERY PRETTY TURQUOISE CRUSHED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT, BY RIVIERE & SON (stamp-signed on front doublure), covers with wide, swirling gilt frame featuring flowers and broad-leaf plants on a thick bed of stippling, raised bands, spine gilt in densely stippled compartments with tulip and acanthus leaves stamped in relief, INTRICATELY GILT MAROON MOROCCO DOUBLURES with large strapwork mandorla and curling azured leafy vines, maroon moir? silk endleaves, top edge gilt. With wood-engraved frontispiece with tissue guard.Spine slightly darkened, just a hint of wear to front joint, edges of leaves faintly browned, one leaf with light dampstain to fore margin, but all of these imperfections trivial, and otherwise a fine copy--clean and fresh internally, and in a glistening binding showing almost no signs of use. This is a fine piece of work by Riviere that is appropriately tooled in light of its contents, a collection of English odes selected by Edmund Gosse. Just as the works included here represent a traditional poetic form that finds its roots in the classical world, everything about the gilt embellishment on the binding suggests the archaic--from the acanthus leaves (so prevalent in the decoration of Medieval manuscripts) on the cover to the azured vegetation and strapwork panelling (so frequently seen in 16th century bindings) on the striking doublures. Although he never attended university, the English poet, author, and critic Sir Edmund William Gosse (1849-1928) began his career as assistant librarian at the British Museum. From 1884 to 1890, he lectured in English literature at Trinity College, Cambridge, and in the former year, his successful lecture tour in America earned him considerable fame. A collection of works by Spenser, Milton, Dryden, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, Keats, and others, "English Odes" was originally published in 1881, was met with approval, and was reprinted several times.
