        Die Wertbemessung des Diptherieheilserums und deren theoretischen Grundlagen.

      - Klin. Jb., 6. - Jena, Verlag von Gustav Fischer, 1897, 8°, 34 pp., original broschiertes Exemplar; aus ganz leicht fleckig, innen sauberes und unbeschnittenes Exemplar dieses Klassikers. First Edition - Extreme rare offprint of this Milestone of Immunology - "The standardization of diphtheria antitoxins and their theoretical foundation! - Paul Ehrlich (1854-1915) improved Behring's diphtheria antitoxin and established an international standard for this and other antitoxins. This was the beginning of the concept of biological standardization. The first exposition of Ehrlich's side-chain theory appeared in this paper. - "In life and death, Paul Ehrlich (1854-1915) was a controversial and influential scientist. His novel and elaborate biochemical theories invited severe criticism by his fellow researchers, yet his concepts dominated immunology for decades. He was condemned by clergy for interfering with God's justice against sinners by developing the syphilis-curing arsenical Salvarsan, also known as "606," but he opened the frontier of systemic chemotherapy against infectious disease. He shared the Nobel honors of 1908 with Elie Metchnikoff for his work in immunochemistry and his name was heralded around the world. Thus, the Nazi attempt long after his death to make him an unperson, to use the Orwellian Newspeak, was sheer folly. German bureaucrats changed the name of the street that honored him, they destroyed his biographies, and they expunged his mention in the new textbooks of German science. Ehrlich's great offense to the Third Reich to justify such actions was that he was a Jew. Nevertheless, while other tombstones in the Jewish Cemetery of Frankfurt were defiled, his grave site with its prominent column-mounted Star of David and medical caduceus was unharmed. - Ehrlich was more than a great chemotherapist and immunologist. A pioneer hematologist, he differentiated the various blood cells and discovered the tissue mast cell; an oncologist, he examined the growth dynamics and transplantation of tumors; a stain technologist, he was able to color nerve cells and to detect the tubercle bacillus in tissues by developing the acid-fast dye technique; a clinical chemist, he discovered the diazo reaction and found a useful test for bilirubin. However, Ehrlich is honored here as a genius of immunochemistry and one of the most colorful characters of the science, literally as well as figuratively. - Ehrlich was a cousin of the pathologist Carl Weigert, who helped introduce him to the newly developed aniline dyes when Ehrlich began his own medical training at the University of Breslau. He later transferred to the University of Strassbourg, and finally received the M.D. at the University of Leipzig in 1878. He next went to Berlin's Charite Hospital. Ehrlich was never offered a professorship, but in 1889 Robert Koch asked him to join his laboratory. He had previously met Koch in 1876, when the bacteriologist came to Ferdinand Cohn's Botanical Department at Breslau to demonstrate the life cycle of the anthrax bacillus. Koch's institute in Berlin was one of the few places where classic Prussian military medical officers and Jewish physicians could work together in friendship without restrictive barriers. In 1896 Ehrlich received from Friedrich Althoff of the Prussian Ministry of Ecclesiastical, Educational and Medical Affairs the appointment as the director of the small, insufficiently funded State Institute for Serum Research and Serum Testing in Steglitz. Althoff soon realized that Ehrlich deserved better, and in 1899 he helped him gain the directorship of the Institute of Experimental Therapy in Frankfurt-am-Main and later the directorship of the adjacent Georg Speyerhaus, where Ehrlich at last received the freedom and funding he needed for his creative work. Later, Ehrlich described success in science as due to "Geduld, Geschick, Geld, und Glück"-patience, talent, money, and luck. - Indeed, money was one of the issues that broke .

Later, Ehrlich described success in science as due to "Geduld, Geschick, Geld, und Glück"-patience, talent, money, and luck. - Indeed, money was one of the issues that broke up the collaboration between Ehrlich and Emil von Behring. Ehrlich's improved technique for producing highly potent diphtheria antitoxin made possible its commercial manufacture and distribution. A chemical company seemed to be ready to contract with both Behring and Ehrlich for commercial rights in return for a percentage of the profits. However, when Ehrlich arrived at the factory, Behring had already reached a separate accord. He persuaded Ehrlich to forgo his share on the promise that he would use his influence to gain Ehrlich the directorship of a state-sponsored research institute, a position that forbade commercial interests. Behring failed to help Ehrlich, but prospered in his own right. Indeed, Behring loved to gamble, and with the aid of winnings he established his own factory and laboratory. Ehrlich never forgave his old colleague for the subterfuge and deceit, nor for the audacity of seeking free laboratory services at Ehrlich's own institutes. - In the paper presented here, Ehrlich confronted more than a technical problem of quality control; the very unknown nature of the antibody-antigen union loomed darkly. Max von Gruber, an eminent serologist and hygienist, and many others criticized him for conjuring the various toxoid substances as devices of mere convenience. However, these scientists were just as confused as Ehrlich, following erroneous models of colloid adsorption or electrolytic dissociation. The law of definite proportions was incorrectly assumed to hold. Antibodies were seen as uniform chemical reactants constant in valence and structure; therefore, Ehrlich explained his inconsistent test results by ascribing variation to the antigenic, toxic atomic groups. He proposed a spectrum of weakened toxins, which he termed "toxoids," that differed in their affinity to antibodies. Each experimental preparation had a unique composition of toxin and toxoids, whose behavior under different mixing conditions affected neutralization. - Ehrlich had the idea of affinity reversed. It is the antibody that varies in affinity and also in valence. The notion of toxoids, however, was valid, but not to the extent he thought. Denatured, nontoxic molecules derived from toxins can indeed elicit and couple with toxin-specific antibodies. Equally true was the fundamental approach of all of Ehrlich's research: corpora non agunt nisi fixata, substances do not react unless they become fixed. He visualized molecules as having two regions of activity, one of which (the haptophore) attaches to complementary receptors on target cells. The other configuration may be a colored dye (the chromophore) or act as a poison (the toxop-hore). Ricin, a toxin found in castor beans, and diphtheria toxin, which were the focus of Ehrlich's attention, have recently been shown to consist of two distinct molecular domains, and their respective functions conform to Ehrlich's model. Even certain antibodies display such a dual nature, the variable antibody receptors attaching to the antigen and the constant Fc region (the tail of the Y-shaped structure) coupling somewhat nonspecifically to the surface of macrophages or mast cells. Ehrlich had taken the first bold step to bring an immunobiological phenomenon into the realm of chemistry. Considering that biochemistry was still an ocean of dreams with only few islands of reality, his grasp of stereochemical principles and behavior was amazingly clear."

        Condensation of Water Vapour in the Presence of Dust-free Air and other Gases

      Harrison and Sons, London 1897 - FIRST EDITION of the first description of WIlson's famous cloud chamber, the first type of detector to show the tracks of elementary particles. Cloud chambers "developed from the work of Charles Wilson at the Cavendish Laboratory in the 1890's. He was interested in creating artificial mist, in order to investigate its effect on light, and did so by building a desktop-sized apparatus in which a glass chamber full of moist air was connected to a piston which could be suddenly moved outward, lowering the pressure and causing mist (or cloud) to form in the chamber. The mist droplets grow on tiny particles of dust in the air (cloud condensation nuclei). But, to his surprise, Wilson found that even when all the dust had been removed from the chamber, when the piston was rapidly moved out over a large distance a very thin mist still formed in the chamber. He surmised that the droplets were condensing around electrically charged particles (ions), and proved this, early in 1896, by operating the cloud chamber alongside a source of X-rays (X-rays had only been discovered in the preceding year) and seeing it fill up with condensation as the X-rays passing through it ionized the atoms in the air inside the chamber. Cloud chambers became an essential tool of physics (it was a cloud chamber photograph, for example, that first revealed the existence of the positron) and grew much larger, many being several meters across. They are still used, although superseded for many purposes by other detectors, including bubble chambers and wire chambers." (Gribben, Q is for Quantum). Wilson shared the 1927 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his method of making the paths of electrically charged particles visible by condensation of vapour." Also includes an early paper by Ernest Rutherford, "A Magnetic Detector of Electrical Waves and some of its Applications" (p. 1-24).

        THE LARK [Whole Numbers 1 through 24].

      San Francisco: C.A. Murdock & Co. [1st number only]; then William Doxey, May 1895 - April 1897. - Twenty-four issues (of 25 published, lacking the EPILARK). Wire-stitched and sewn pictorial self wrappers, numbers 9 and beyond printed on one side of leaf only. Heavily illustrated. Usual occasional tanning, some chipping along fore and bottom edges of first number, a few other snags and creases at large overlap edges, but generally a very good set. Half morocco slipcase and cloth chemise. Edited by Gillette Burgess and Bruce Porter. A complete run, less the EPILARK, including the separate plates in the first two numbers and the separate leaflet supplement, "Vals de Monterey Viejo," to #22. The first number is in the scarce first printing, without Doxey's imprint. The chief literary organ of the Bayside Bohemians of the last decade of the 19th century. Gelette Burgess was responsible for much of the text, along with illustrations and cover designs by Florence Lundborg, Gelett Burgess, Ernest Peixotto, Hervert Van Vlack, Newton Tharp, Reginald Rix, Willis Polk and Bruce Porter, and other contributions by Maynard Dixon, Yone Noguchi, Porter Garnett, et al. A number of Stevenson relics appear in the early issues, and the first number includes the first appearance of Burgess' whimsical ditty, "I Never Saw a Purple Cow.," published later as a separate. While the clothbound issue in two volumes (which includes the second printing of the first number) is readily available, substantial runs of the original separate issues, with the first printing of the first number, are now elusive.

        L'Ermitage - Revue artistique et littéraire. Année complète 1897.

      Bureaux de la Revue 1897 - - Bureaux de la Revue, Paris 1897, 11,5x18,5cm, 2 volumes reliés. - Edition originale.Reliure de l'éditeur à la bradel en demi percaline verte foncée, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, petit fer doré et double filet doré en queue.Douze numéros de janvier à décembre 1897. Couvertures conservées.Chaque numéro est illustré d'une xylographie bichrome.Contributions littéraires de René Boylesve, Paul Fort, Francis Jammes, Henri Ghéon, Remy de Gourmont, etc.Publication fondée en 1890 par Henri Mazel, l'Ermitage est une revue mensuelle appartenant à la première vague des petites revues symbolistes. Dans les années 1895, la revue entre en déclin, et son nouveau directeur, Edouard Ducoté, fait appel à André Gide. L'équipe de rédaction est alors réduite à douze collaborateurs réguliers, amis de Gide. Après de multiples difficultés et tentatives de remaniement de l'équipe rédactionnelle (Remy de Gourmont y fera un passage et y contribuera également financièrement en 1905), l'Ermitage rend son dernier soupir en 1906. L'Ermitage parvient à se détacher d'autres revues importantes de l'époque comme le Mercure de France ou la Revue blanche car elle se revendique éclectique et apolitique ; sur sa couverture, on peut d'ailleurs lire que c'est "la seule Revue qui ne s'occupe ni de politique ni de sociologie [mais] qui traite uniquement de littérature et d'art." Ses petites illustrations sont de style art nouveau, et, fidèle à son état d'esprit symboliste, ses collaborateurs s'intéressent davantage à la poésie qu'au roman. Tiphaine Samoyault, critique littéraire française, estime que l'Ermitage exprime une transition à cheval sur l'esthétisme fin de siècle et la poésie d'avant-garde des années 1910.

        Las Montañas Del Oro. Poema. Tiene Tres Ciclos I Dos Reposorios.

      Imp. Jorge A. Kern 1897 - 152 pgs y 2hs, 17cms x 12.5cms. Cubierta en piel en muy buen estado.Portada a dos tintas, texto con pequeñas manchas de oxidación, con firma autografa de Leopoldo Lugones . Este ejemplar es el numero 32. Con firma de antiguo dueño. Incluye lista de libros del autor rechazadas por los editores. Las Montañas de Oro se publican en 1897, y está escrito entre los veinte y los veintidós años de Lugones. En él quedan evidentes las grandes devociones que profesaba el poeta en ese tiempo: Walt Whitman, Víctor Hugo, los Salmos, y también dos poetas argentinos muy diferentes, Olegario de Andrade y el populista Almafuerte. Estos, junto a Homero y Dante, constituyen la Asamblea de próceres líricos que integran el tomo. Una retórica atrevida > dice Obligado, para un pensamiento libertario y cuasi socialista. La > que tuvo el elogio de Paul Groussac, fue definida como capaz de >. Pero no es un canto meramente ornamental como puede parecer a simple vista, ya que su modernismo está respaldado por una constante exaltación de la justicia, que aparece como meta optimista en su profecía que no deja de tener tintes mesiánicos. Usa el alejandrino con destreza., y nos hace saber que conoce bien a Poe. Su verso libre e incluso su prosa, esconde siempre endecasílabos. El libro está dividido en tres ciclos, en el último, constituido por el suntuoso poema Las Torres el poeta aparece como centro y motor de la lucha que predica.
