        Studies in spermatogenesis with especial reference to the "accessory chromosome". Washington, D.C.: Carneiged Institution of Washington, 1905; 1906

      Washington, D.C.: Carnegie Institution of Washington, 1906. FIRST EDITION. With 15 total plates. Original publisher's cloth, library markings on front covers, tear in first free endpaper of Volume II, interiors otherwise excellent. Bookplates of Cornell University Library noting the gift on Hon. A.D. White (withdrawn stamp), and the ownership signature of Mark A. Cukierski. First edition of this monumental study of chromosomal sex determination in the sperm and egg cells of insect species, an early example of XY sex-determination. The work describes Stevens' research on the generation of sperm cells (spermatogenesis) and their role in the fertilization of egg cells, with a focus on chromosomal differences in sperm cells. Part I, published in 1905, investigates a theory first noted by Clarence Erwin McClung, that an odd number of chromosomes found in insects from some species formed a basis of sexual determination by which an extra chromosome caused cells to differentiate differently than normal. Stevens investigates the theory as a potential sex determination mechanism. The results of additional research are published in Part II, which focuses on beetles, and her search for sexual differentiation mechanisms in similar species to confirm sex determination by a distinct chromosomal element. Stevens devotes much of her work describing chromosomes in both germ cells (precursor cells to egg and sperm cells) and somatic cells and her ability to determine which chromosome will result in the development of a male or female. Stevens provides one of the first observations of XY sex-determination, allowing researchers to locate the material of Mendelian inheritance that passed specific traits through a distinct chromosomal element. Studies in spermatogenesis influenced biologists such as Thomas Hunt Morgan and Edmund Beecher Wilson, who, after Stevens published her results in Part I, revised his previous publications, deleting references to environmental influences. Stevens (1861-1912) studied at Stanford and then Bryn Mawr. Along with Wilson, the previous head of the biology department there, she was the first researcher to describe the chromosomal basis of sex.

        Jack Jarvis' Jaunt

      N.p., 1906. 13 (of 14) original watercolor drawings, each with manuscript caption leaf. Some chipping to title and caption leaves. 13 (of 14) original watercolor drawings, each with manuscript caption leaf. An unpublished manuscript illustrated with 13 original watercolors.A skillfully and pleasingly executed series of watercolors illustrating the ill-fated journey of one Jack Jarvis, who returns from his jaunt without arms or legs. Unfortunately, the illustration showing the pivotal severings is missing. The author and illustrator, Charles Collette (1842-1924), was a popular English stage actor and composer. His extravagantly titled Cryptoconchoidsyphonostomata, or While It's to be Had, premiered in 1875 on the same billing as Gilbert and Sullivan's Trial by Jury.

        Gesigt van de stadt Leyden beroemt door syn hooge schoole geleege in Holland op den verstopten Ryn. | Vue de la ville de Leide fameuse par son academie située en Hollande sur le Rhin bouché.[Amsterdam], Leonardus Schenk, [ca. 1728/36]. Large engraved wall print on 2 sheets (together 57.5 x 97 cm) showing the Leiden city wall between the Koepoort and Zijlpoort, with various windmills and prominent buildings in the background identified by name. The title appears in a banderole at the head, with putti on either side holding the arms of Leiden and Holland. Leonardus Schenk's name appears as engraver and publisher at the right end of the banderole. Framed (82.5 x 121 cm).

      Overvoorde, Catalogus van de prentverzameling der Gemeente Leiden (1906), no. 640; Waller, Biogr. woordenb. Noord Ned. graveurs, p. 287. Large view of the city of Leiden by the Amsterdam engraver and publisher Leonardus Schenk. The viewer observes the city from the south, from between the city's Koe and Zijl gates. In the background several windmills and a few characteristic buildings are identified by name in the engraving, including the university, the library, the Pieterskerk, the Town Hall, the Mare kerk, the "Burcht" (the fort), and the Hooglandse kerk. On the quay outside the wall, groups of people walk, sporadically passed by small boats on the nearby city moat. In the foreground we see a typical Dutch landscape, with grazing cattle, farm workers, a loaded hay cart and haystacks in the field. We know of several other wall prints by Schenk depicting local situations with almost photographic detail. Thanks to this detail important socio-historical aspects have been passed on to later generations giving these prints an important cultural meaning today. A few spots, formerly folded, otherwise in very good condition.

        The Integrative Action of the Nervous System

      Charles Scribner's Sons 1906 - 1st ed. Bound in publisher's navy cloth. Hardcover. Near fine binding and cover. Clean, unmarked pages. xvi, 411 p. : 85 illustrations; 22 cm. In 1904 Dr. Charles Sherrington gave a series of ten lectures at Yale on the nervous system. These lectures were compiled in 1906 as The Integrative Action of the Nervous System. "This work stands as the true foundation of modern neurophysiology; it is considered by Fulton to rank in importance with Harvey's De Motu Cordis, while Walshe asserts that it holds a position in physiology similar to Newton's Principia in physics." (Garrison-McHenry, History of Neurology, p. 229) Before publishing The Integrative Action of the Nervous System, Sherrington had spent 20 years engaged in clinical research on mammals, primarily rhesus monkeys. "Sherrington postulated that the reflex is the simplest unit of nervous integration." (Levine) His work focused on isolating involuntary reflexes and the grey matter of the spinal cord by systematically mapped sensory dermatomes. Previously, anatomical texts had presumed nerves going to muscles were motor nerves. Sherrington's discovery that a large number of these nerves were sensory upended the contemporary view. Building on Ramon y Cajal's neuron theory, Sherrington concluded that reflexes were integrated activities of an organism and not simply isolated reflex arcs. To better describe his system, Sherrington introduced the terms, synapse, and proprioceptive. He proposed that the synapse was the site where reflexes interact. The Integrative Action of the Nervous System "provided a framework for subsequent research that led to an understanding of the mechanisms of synaptic transmission." (Levine, 3 p.) He shared the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1932 'for their discoveries regarding the functions of neurons.'

        THE STORY OF MISS MOPPET

      Published by Frederick Warne & Co., 1906. 1st edition.. Hardback. Very Good. Illustrated by Potter, Beatrix. Very good condition with no wrapper. The delightful story of Miss Moppet, the little kitten, and her attempts to catch a mouse who is determined not to be caught! The first edition is printed in panoramic form, mounted on a strip of linen and folded concertina-style into a wallet with a tuck-in flap. Needless to say, these were very fragile and few survived. Later editions were printed in the usual small book format. The wallet is covered with grey pictorial cloth with a colour onlay of the Miss Moppet to the front. "London & New York" on rear cover denotes that this is the first printing. Some wear to cover edges; a few light marks. Inscription in ink to verso of a 'page' of this book. Light browning; small piece of surface paper damage to corner of page with inscription. All pages are still in tact - some wear to page edges. Still in very good condition for this book! [S]

        PHARAOH'S TURQUOISE ..

      London: F. V. White and Co. Ltd., 1906.. Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii-viii 1-312, original blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition. "The opening scene, in which two English women become lost in a forest at night, sets an archetypal fairly tale note for the novel. They are rescued by a down-at-heel gentleman who turns out to be a gypsy (or, as we eventually learn, a half-gypsy). After falling in love with an Englishwoman he recounts the story of his life, including eight years in the North African desert where he obtained the turquoise of the title after an ordeal involving combat with revivified mummies. The gem is believed by the gypsies to have talismanic powers. This sensational melodrama is typical in dwelling on the evolutions of love affairs and revelations about parentage. One thing distinguishing it is its detailed and sympathetic treatment of a large cast of gypsies who live near a manor house." "Mystery thriller of crime and detection revolving [sic] an ancient gem, the original obtaining of which is described in three or four chapters of supernatural occurrences in an Egyptian tomb." - Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 125. Hubin (1994), p. 451. Gift inscription dated 29 September 1908 on the contents page. Some foxing to edges of text block, a bright, nearly fine copy. Two library holdings on WorldCat: BL and Oxford.
