        The Wonderful Adventures of Little Prince Toofat

      A Very Good copy, one inch tear in the cloth at the top of the spine, some fraying at the heel, corners bumped, separation of the page block between 24 & 25, but on the whole a clean, complete copy of a surprisingly uncommon book. A very scarce children's book, the first one illustrated by the wonderful Robert Lawson, best known for illustrating "Ferdinand' by Munro Leaf and for writing numerous children's books himself. Lawson won The Caldecott Medal, the Newberry Medal and the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, for various works, the only person to win all three. No first edition copies currently (or recently) on the market, only one auction record from 2009 which brought over $2,000. (Remember 2009? That's when the bottom dropped out of the housing market and the Dow plunged below 7000). Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition]

        30 offprints on physics, one from Emilio Segre's library, the rest from R. T. Birge's. Many with presentation inscriptions

      1922-1947. From the Libraries of Birge & Segre; Includes Eight Presentation Copies Van Vleck, John Hasbrouk (1899-1980). Collection of 30 offprints, as listed below. 8vo & 4to. V.p., 1922-47. Most in original wrappers, some lacking wrappers or without wrappers as issued; see below for detailed condition statements. Very good collection, with eight items bearing Van Vleck's presentation inscriptions; another (no. 22) has a correction in Van Vleck's hand. From the library of physicist Raymond T. Birge (1887-1980), except for no. 30, which is from the library of Nobel Laureate Emilio Segre (1905-89). First Separate Editions. Van Vleck, "the father of modern magnetism" (Weber, p. 249), received a share of the 1977 Nobel Prize for physics for his fundamental investigations of the electronic structure of magnetic systems, and his successful use of quantum mechanics to explain magnetic phenomena. This important work, most of which was performed during the 1920s and 1930s (the time period from which our collection of offprints dates), has had a "profound influence on nearly every part of the science of condensed matter . . . [underlying] the development of computer memories, office copying machines and many other electronic devices" (Magee, p. 1111). It played a vital part in establishing the fields of solid-state physics, chemical physics and quantum electronics. Van Vleck earned his doctorate in physics from Harvard University with the "first wholly theoretical thesis dealing with quantum theory to be accepted by an American university" (Magee, p. 1113). This thesis (no. 1) was on one of the most difficult problems in the old quantum theory: calculation of the ground state and ionization energy of the "crossed-orbit" model of the helium atom. During the next twelve years Van Vleck taught at the Universities of Minnesota (1923-28) and Wisconsin (1928-34), where he performed the work that established him as a physicist. He made his greatest contribution to the old quantum theory in 1924, when he conceived his correspondence principle for absorption. In his long two-part paper on the subject (no. 4), Van Vleck "not only established the relation between Einstein's absorption coefficient and the motion of the electron in atoms (as Born did), he also demonstrated that the classical absorption corresponded to the difference between the absorption and the induced emission in the sense of Einstein" (Mehra & Rechenberg, p. 647). During this time he also worked on the quantum theory of the polarization of resonance radiation in magnetic fields (no. 5). The years 1925-26 saw the advent of the new quantum mechanics, which Van Vleck was quick to adopt, publishing his first papers utilizing the new techniques in 1926 (see nos. 6-7). In early 1927 Van Vleck was successful in applying the new quantum mechanics to the problem of electric and magnetic susceptibilities; the approach that he developed, "permitted him to establish the theory of magnetism on a firm quantum-mechanical basis. After struggling with the problem of paramagnetic molecules in the fall of 1926, Van Vleck finally arrived at a satisfactory theory of susceptibilities in the middle of January, 1927 [see no. 8]. He applied his quantum theory of magnetic susceptibilities to the paramagnetic gases, oxygen and nitrous oxide [no. 9]. In 1927, measurements on nitrous oxide had been made only at room temperature, but within a few years, Van Vleck's prediction of the variation of the magnetic moment of the nitric oxide molecule at low temperatures was confirmed in laboratories in Leiden, Zurich, and Cambridge, Massachusetts. These remarkable experimental verifications gave Van Vleck a worldwide reputation among physicists" (Magee, p. 1114). During this period Van Vleck also turned his attention to molecular spectroscopy (see no. 15), discovering the phenomenon of lambda-doubling (see no. 16) and developing what is now known as the Van Vleck degenerate perturbation theory to account for it. In the early and mid-1930s, Van Vleck began focusing on crystal field theory (which he helped to formulate) and on molecular physics. One of his more important contributions to the latter field was his three-part study of the structure and bonding of methane molecule (nos. 17-18 & 20, plus correction [no. 22]). In 1934 Van Vleck was appointed professor of mathematical physics at Harvard, a position he occupied the remainder of his career. At Harvard he continued to explore dielectric phenomena and molecular spectra, began work in nuclear physics, investigated the fields of ferromagnetism and antimagnetism, and began an important series of papers on paramagnetism. In 1939 he gave a series of lectures on current theories of magnetism at the Institut Henri Poincare in Paris; publication of these lectures, delayed by World War II, took place in 1947 (no. 30). During the war Van Vleck participated in several important military projects, including radar research and feasibility studies of the fission bomb. After the war he returned to pure research, making major contributions to the establishment of quantum electrodynamics and to the theoretical understanding of nuclear magnetic resonance. Van Vleck wrote only two books (Quantum Principles and Line Spectra, 1926; and The Theory of Electric and Magnetic Susceptibilities, 1932), but published more than 180 papers, 30 of which we are offering here in offprint form. All but one of the offprints here are from the library of Raymond T. Birge, chairman from 1933 to 1953 of the UC Berkeley physics department, who played a critical role in introducing modern quantum physics to the United States through his advocacy of the Bohr theory and his work in molecular spectroscopy. The remaining offprint is from the library of Emilio Segre, recipient of a share of the 1959 Nobel Prize in physics for his work on the antiproton.

        18 offprints on antisepsis, chemotherapy, including the discovery of Lysozyme, the first antibiotic discovered.

      1922-1940 1922 - Discovery of Lysozyme and PenicillinFleming, Alexander (1881-1955). Collection of 18 offprints, as listed below. Various sizes (largest is 249 x 185 mm.). All in original wrappers or without wrappers as issued; see below for more detailed condition statements. 12 of the 18 offprints are presentation copies, with the author's stamp and (in one case) inscription. Very good set. First Separate Editions, including the extremely rare offprint of Fleming's first major discovery--lysozyme. Garrison-Morton 1910.1. Fleming, who shared the Nobel Prize in 1945 for his discovery of penicillin, devoted most of his career to investigating antibacterial mechanisms in the human body. This group of offprints--two-thirds of which are presentation copies--highlights Fleming's investigations of lysozyme, and of the antibacterial properties of sulfonamides.Lysozyme, one of the body's defenses against bacterial infection, was discovered by Fleming in 1921 during a search for agents that slowed bacterial growth but were not-unlike most chemical antiseptics-too toxic to take internally. One day, when he had a cold, he added a drop of mucus to a bacterial culture and found, to his surprise, that it dissolved the bacteria. Upon investigation Fleming found that the active agent was present not only in nasal mucus but in tears, blood serum, milk and saliva. His first paper on lysozyme (no. [1] below; Garrison-Morton 1910.1) was published in 1922. Lysozyme and penicillin (discovered in 1928) are Fleming's two outstandingly important antibacterial discoveries. Although of limited use pharmacologically, lysozyme deserves pride of place as the first discovered antibiotic, and it has also proved valuable in studies of bacterial cytology due to its specific disruptive action on the cell walls of certain gram-positive organisms. After the publication of Gerhard Domagk's landmark paper on Prontosil, the first of the "sulfa" drugs, Fleming began researching the antibacterial properties of sulfonamides [nos. 9, 10, 15]. Sulfonamides were the first chemically-based drugs to show only minimal toxicity; effective against a wide range of microbes, they were the "wonder drugs" prior to the stabilization and purification of penicillin (by Florey and Chain) in 1940. 1.

        American Individualism

      Garden City: Doubleday, Page and Company, 1922. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by Herbert Hoover on the front free endpaper in a contemporary hand, "To ____ __ _____ with kind regards Herbert Hoover." An excellent near fine copy in a very good dust jacket. On publication, reviewers praised American Individualism as a work that ranks "among the few great formulations of American political theory" (New York Times). Published while serving as President Harding's Secretary of Commerce, this important early work by President Herbert Hoover represented, to historian Frederick Jackson Turner, clear "evidence of a mind seeking to adapt pioneering traditions to the problems of an industrial and urban age" (Hawley, 3).

        David Belasco two silver gelatin photos both signed by Genthe, and one with an inscription poem by the playwright impresario, to important artist William Haskell Coffin

      NP, 1922. No binding. Very Good. Two silver gelatin photos, 19cm x20.5cm (7-1/2 x 8 inches) both signed by Arnold Genthe. Photos probably circa 1911 and the Belasco signed print is dated 1922?. Overall very good condition.One with an inscription poem by the well know playwright impresario David Belasco, to important listed artist [William] Haskell Coffin [1877-1941] (famous WWI poster with Jeanne D'arc); a poem of revelatory nature. Belasco, inscription reacts to Haskell Coffins remark about him having bedroom eyes. (underneath the dedication says: a boy of terrible ideas...) The other photo is signed in the bottom right by Genthe.Quite a nice Genthe silver gelatin signed photo with the incorporation of the Belasco inscription and Coffin ownership. Three very well known people all linked in this intriguing photo!The other photo is signed in the bottom right by Genthe. It is very curious from a provenance viewpoint, the previous dealer indicated both of these silver gelatin photos came from a son of Haskell Coffin and the whole collection contained diaries photos family and friends and many photos. One wonders why there would be an inscribed Belaco photo and other only signed by Genthe. Another story?Inscription "To Haskell Coffin (a boy of terrible ideas) I will not show those eyes which you have said Should not be put in any fellows head Nor hint at my complete- my shocked surprise When you informed me "you have bedroom eyes". David Belasco. Belasco was probably as comprehensive a theatre practitioner as could be - actor, stage manager, pioneer of stage lighting, director, playwright, manager - Belasco did them all. He also discovered Mary Pickford. From 1884-1930, Belasco produced over 100 shows on Broadway. Belasco was informally known in the theatrical community as "the Bishop of Broadway,"William Haskell Coffin (1877-1941) A well-known magazine illustrator and figure and portrait painter in New York City. Marriage (1): Ida BREMAN on 30 April 1908 in New York, NY. Marriage (2): Frances STARR on 27 May 1920 in New York, NY, United States. W Haskell Coffin probably due to personal and financial problems that he committed suicide in St. Petersburg, Florida in 1941.Arnold Genthe was a German-born American photographer, best known for his photos of San Francisco's Chinatown, the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and his portraits of noted people, from politicians and socialites to literary figures and entertainment celebrities. In 1911 he moved to New York City, where he remained until his death of a heart attack in 1942. He worked primarily in portraiture.
