        Treatment of Pernicious Anemia by a Special Diet. (Offprint from "The Journal of the American Medical Association", Aug. 14, 1926, Vol. 87, pp. 470-476).

      Chicago, American Medical Association, 1926. 8vo. Offprint in the original printed wrappers. Previous owner's name to top right corner of front wrapper. A very fine and clean copy. 19 pp.. First printing, in the scarce offprint, of Minot and Murphy's seminal Nobel Prize winning paper which "ranks as one of the greatest modern advances in [anemia] therapy." (GM). Minot and Murphy shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1934 with George Whipple "for their discoveries concerning liver therapy in cases of anaemia". "The brilliant discovery by Minot and Murphy in 1926, demonstrating the dramatic effectiveness of liver preparations in pernicious anemia, forms one of the landmarks in the history of therapeutics." (Satoskar, Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapeutics)."Prompted by pathologist George Whipple's research on the feeding of liver to anemic dogs, Minot and Murphy fed liver to their patients. In a now famous 1926 paper [the present], they announced its miraculous benefits for forty-five otherwise doomed souls" (Wailoo, Drawing Blood: technology and Disease Identity in Twentieth-Century America). Up until the 1920'ies, pernicious anemia (also known as "blood thinning" disease) was a fatal disease, for which there was no cure. People who developed pernicious anemia - characterized by dangerously low counts of red blood cells - were left exhausted, hospitalized, and without the hope of being cured. "Minot's work and that of numerous pupils during the decade after 1926 initiated a new era in clinical hematology by replacing the largely morphologic studies of the blood and of the blood-forming and blood-destroying organs with dynamic measurements of their functions." (DSB).In the early 1920s, most doctors believed that pernicious anemia was caused by a toxic substance in the body, and they prescribed doses of arsenic, transfusions, or removal of the spleen as treatments. But after these remedies were administered, patients had relapses, and death was inevitable. Across the world, 6,000 lives a year were lost to the scourge of pernicious anemia."In 1923, Minot met William P. Murphy, who had graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1922 and who was to become an assistant instructor at Harvard Medical School in 1924. In their investigations to find a cure for pernicious anemia, Minot believed that research by George Whipple, a researcher whom he had known while both were at Johns Hopkins Hospital, was particularly significant. Whipple had completed experiments in which he bled dogs to make them anemic. Then he determined which foods restored their red blood cells. His results showed that red meat and certain vegetables were effective treatments, but liver was the best treatment. Minot wondered if Whipple's findings with dogs could be duplicated in humans. He and Murphy were determined to try it, and proceeded to do so with their private patients. Observing an increase in the patients' red blood cell counts, they thought they were on the right track, and decided to try the experiment with hospitalized patients which eventually led to their landmark discovery." (The Harward University Gazette, 1998).After Minot and Murphy's verification of Whipple's results in 1926, pernicious anemia victims ate or drank at least one-half pound of raw liver, or drank raw liver juice, every day. This continued for several years, until a concentrate of liver juice became available.The active ingredient in liver remained unknown until 1948, when it was isolated by chemists Karl A. Folkers.Garrison & Morton: 3140

He was one of the earliest innovators of the then-new literary art form called jazz poetry. Hughes is best known as a leader of the Harlem Renaissance. He famously wrote about the period that "the negro was in vogue", which was later paraphrased as "when Harlem was in vogue"."; Signed by Author .

      Paris: Henri Reynaud, 1926. No. 196 OF 262 COPIES on Arches paper, from a total edition of 343 n. Hardcover. 240 x 190 mm (9 1/2 x 7 1/2"). 292 pp., [3] leaves. No. 196 OF 262 COPIES on Arches paper, from a total edition of 343. Publisher's cream-colored printed wrapper. WITH 20 MINIATURES BY ARTHUR SZYK, COLORED BY JEAN SAUDÉ. The spine of the original insubstantial binding with faint creases and two tears (one short, one three inches long), one gathering becoming loose, but the binding and contents in extremely clean, fresh, and bright condition. This edition of Flaubert's dramatic poem recounting the Devil's temptation of Saint Anthony the Great is illustrated with remarkable pochoir plates distinguished by their creator and their colorist. Flaubert spent more than 25 years writing and rewriting this work, which was finally published in 1874. It recounts one day in the life of the Desert Father who is considered the founder of Western monasticism, a day during which Satan tries to lure him away from God using promises of wealth, power, revenge, carnality, and other forms of indulgence. The "Oxford Companion" calls it "remarkable for its beauty of style and language, and its imaginative power." It certainly fired the imagination of illustrator Arthur Szyk (1894-1951), whom Seymour de Ricci described as "a new Byzantinist." The richly detailed miniatures here provide a foreshadowing of the style that would bring Szyk fame with his "Haggadah" (1939), one of the great illuminated books of the 20th century. As impressive as the illustrations themselves is the coloring by Jean Saudé, the master of the pochoir technique, and someone who literally wrote the book on the subject. Saudé had to make hundreds of stencils here to apply the individual hues that give fabrics their drape and texture, Persian rugs their pattern, and real and fantastical creatures their amazing detail.

        El Habitante Y Su Esperanza [Association Copy: Signed, Placed, and Dated]

      Buenos Aires: Editorial Nascimento, 1926. First edition. Wrappers. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original cream-colored wrappers (some handling soil, small stain to the spine head and adjoining portion of each wrapper, title to the front wrapper underlined in blue, evidence of neat early repairs to the spine ends and edges and to the hinges -- in better condition than we are used to seeing), SIGNED BY PABLO NERUDA on the front free endpaper and there inscribed by him as follows: para / Maury / Austin / Bromsen / [illegible] / Neruda / 1947". Neruda also has placed his inscription and signature in "Santiago / de Chile". Pablo Neruda won the 1971 Nobel Prize in Literature for "a poetry that with the action of an elemental force brings alive a continent's destiny and dreams". [Bromsen, the inscribee, was a noted American bibliophile and book dealer who spent 1941 and 1947 (the year Neruda inscribed this book) at the University of Chile as both student and teacher. An expert in Latin America, Bromsen was a member of the Department of Cultural Affairs for the Pan American Union and built the finest collection of manuscript and iconographic items in the United States related to his hero Simon Bolivar, a leader in the struggle for South American independence, as well as other materials relating to colonial Spanish America spanning the period from Columbus' arrival to Bolivar's death.] Neruda's only novel, El Habitante Y Su Esperanza [The Inhabitant and His Hope], evokes a brooding atmosphere while telling its tale of a jailed horse thief in love with the wife of a fellow felon. A dark work, the novel explores the baser human instincts with its tales of adultery and violent revenge, often speaking to the reader through surreal dreams and lyrical descriptions. While Neruda's habit was to sign his works in green ink -- with green symbolizing hope, IT IS QUITE NOTABLE THAT HE HAS SIGNED THIS BLEAK NOVEL IN BLUE RATHER THAN IN HIS COLOR OF HOPE. [Every other book signed by Neruda that we have handled or otherwise seen has been signed in green ink.] The book itself is not common in the first edition and signed copies of it are as scarce as hen's teeth -- with the auction records showing no signed copy ever having come to auction as of the creation of this listing. A Very Good ASSOCIATION COPY OF PABLO NERUDA'S ONLY NOVEL, SIGNED BY PABLO NERUDA AND QUITE SIGNIFICANTLY SIGNED IN BLUE RATHER THAN IN GREEN. Housed in a custom chemise and slipcase. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE AND QUITE POSSIBLY RARE.

Munch adds that he regrets having been unable to paint Mengelberg's feverish dreams while in Stockholm. - Letter 2 (10 June 1897): Munch writes he wanted to send birthday greetings, but when he left Hamburg he was without money, unable even to afford a postcard. He has sent a lithograph, mentions that Hamsun and Ibsen just passed by his window, and adds he wishes to travel to Paris in the spring. - Letter 3 (10 Jan. 1897): mentions the artist Paul Durand-Ruel, stating that all he exhibits is not symbolic. He also plans to publish an album of lithographs, provided he managed to find more subscribers. - Letter 4 (17 March 1897): some chat on the spring; mentions an exhibition in Dresden. - Postcards: complaints that Mengelberg is a poor correspondent. - Richard Mengelberg (1853-1932) wrote, in 1894, an article on Munch's works for the Frankfurter Zeitung. He was father of Nora Mengelberg, whose portrait Munch painted in 1894. He also made an etching of Richard Mengelberg the same year, his first work as an graphic artist.

      Cuala Press, Dublin 1926 - 215 x 148 mm (8 1/2 x 5 3/4"). 2 p.l., 39, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 300 COPIES. Publisher's holland-backed blue boards, paper label to spine. Title page with publisher's device in red. With Cuala Press Book List laid in. Wade 150; Ransom, p. 241. Tail edges of boards with small dent, free endpapers with usual light offsetting from binder's glue, but A FINE COPY, the text clean, fresh, and bright, and the fragile binding unworn and unsoiled. As the extended title indicates, this is a book comprised of 55 diary notes made by Yeats during the year 1909, issued by a private press directed by his sister Elizabeth. Established in 1903 (as the Dun Emer Press) and then renamed in 1908, the Cuala Press was established to promote modern Irish literature and reprint or translate classic Irish works. According to "The Observer" (as quoted on the advertisement loosely inserted into our copy), Elizabeth Yeats exhibited "taste and wisdom" but "attempted nothing fantastic. Her type, modelled on simple lines, is readable as well as beautiful, and her page has always seemed to us to be excelled by none of our more famous presses, except the Doves. In another way the books of the Cuala Press have been far more interesting than those of any other press" since "the great majority of Miss Yeats' books have been by modern authors, and have often been the first appearance in print of important works." In this volume, Yeats often expresses pithy remarks as if channeling the "Maxims" of La Rochefoucauld. He says, for example, (in Entry 30): "I thought of the perpetual desire of all lovers to talk of their love and how many lovers' quarrels have come from it." In Entry 38, he says, "Evil comes to us men of imagination wearing as its mask all the virtues." And in Entry 50: "A lofty morality should be tolerant, for none declare its laws but those worn out with its warfare, and they must pity sinners." Being insubstantially made, the Cuala "Estrangement" is difficult to find, as here, in agreeable condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Exceptional Private Photo Collection of the grandson of John D. Rockefeller, Spelman Prentice, whose mother Alta Rockefeller Prentice (1871 - 1962) a daughter of the oil tycoon was, Prentice father was Ezra Parmalee Prentice (1863 - 1955). Spelman Prentice (1912-2000) was around 1929 at the Taft School, Watertown, Connecticut and later to 1934 at Yale University in New Haven. Prentice was later like his grandfather oil magnate and died in 2000 as the last of the legendary Rockefeller grandchildren! . - Außergewöhnliche Privatphotosammlung des Enkels von John D. Rockefeller, Spelman Prentice, dessen Mutter Alta Rockefeller Prentice (1871 - 1962) eine Tochter des Ölmagnaten war, Prentice Vater war Ezra Parmalee Prentice (1863 - 1955). Spelman Prentice (1912-2000) war um 1929 an der Taft School, Watertown, Connecticut und später bis 1934 an der Yale University in New Haven. Prentice wurde später wie sein Großvater Ölmagnat und starb erst 2000 als letzter Enkel des legendären Rockefeller! Die Photosammlung fängt mit einigen, teils beschriebenen Photos vom Anwesen der Familie an (wohl auch mit Abbildungen der Mutter). Eine Serie von Photographien zeigt Prentice auf aussergewöhnlich hübschen Pferden, die den Namen nach (Bob Roy und Gypsy King) auf gezüchtete Rennpferde hindeuten. 2 Photos, die etwas größer abgezogen wurden, zeigen ev. den Vater auf einem Pferd, diese beiden Photos tragen am unteren Eck den Namen des Photostudios Frasher's in Pomona, Cal. Es folgen einige Photos, die das Zimmer Prentices in der Taft School zeigen. Der größte Teil allerdings besteht aus Momentaufnahmen die Prentice bei Sportveranstaltungen zeigen. Diese wurden mit ausgeschnittenen Zeitungsartikeln ergänzt, die diese Sportveranstaltungen und auch den oft als Sieger daraus hervorgegangenen Prentice erwähnen! Es wurde ein Benachrichtigungszettel eines E. Lowry eingeklebt, der der Mutter bestätigt, daß sich Prentice zwar eine Verletzung aber keinen Bruch zugezogen habe. Die eingeklebten Zeitungsartikel weisen auf verschiedene Wettkämpfe hin, die die Taft School u.a. gegen Westminster, Berkshire, die Hotschkiss School, etc. erwähnen. Hinter dieser Reihe wurde ein Programmheft des Taft - Loomis - Cloats Triangular Track Meet von 1929 (umfasst 6 Seiten die die Teilnehmer aufführen, broschiert) einmontiert! Ein daneben eingeklebtes Photo aus einer Zeitung zeigt die Geschwister Spelman und Mary auf einer Pferdeveranstaltung in Williamstown, Mass. 5 kleinformatige Photos zeigen Prentice bei einem Campingausflug. 3 Tafeln mit insg. 23 einmontierten Photos zeigen einen Bootsausflug auf einem Segelboot der schon 1926 unternommen wurde.

Danach dann ein großformatiges Originalphotos der Sportler in den Jerseys des Yale College. Danach wieder einige Zeitungsartikel über einen Wettkampf zwischen Harvard und Yale, wohl im Madison Square Garden 1934 (mit ausgeschnittenem Plan des Sportfeldes und ausführlichen Berichten). Hinter den Artikeln eine einmontierte Visitenkarte der Studentenverbindung Zata Psi "Spelman Prentice: hereby pledge myself to Zeta Psi..."

        Legislation of Palestine 1918-1925. Including the Orders-in-Council, Ordinances, Public Notices, Proclamations, Regulations, etc.

      Alexandria, Whitehead Morris Ltd., 1926.. Large 4to (194 x 257 mm). 2 vols. XXII, 668, XXIII-XXXII pp. (2), VIII, 536, IX-XIV pp. Contemp. half calf with cloth covers.. Collection of all legislation issued in British Palestine since December 1917 which was still valid and in force in 1926. "The collection does not represent the whole of the Palestine Law, because the Ottoman Law which was in force at the outbreak of the War remains the basis of the legal system of the country" (vol. I, p. iv). The laws governing the administration of the Palestine Mandate which followed the Balfour Declaration constitute crucial documents for understanding the transfer of power and the gradual replacement of Ottoman, Islamic, customary law by British and eventually Israeli law. Bentwich (1883-1971), the British-appointed attorney-general of Mandatory Palestine, was a prominent Zionist and wrote widely on the establishment of a Jewish Homeland. - Slight foxing to endpapers; ownership stamp "M. Fitzgerald". A scarce work in a good set. - OCLC 22644076.

      Weimar: Cranach Press, 1926. No. 42 OF 250 COPIES on handmade, pure hemp rag (of a total edition of 294, with eight on vellum and 36 on Kessler-Maillol silk rag) n. Hardcover. 335 x 247 mm (13 1/8 x 9 3/4"). 2 p.l., 110 pp., [3] leaves. No. 42 OF 250 COPIES on handmade, pure hemp rag (of a total edition of 294, with eight on vellum and 36 on Kessler-Maillol silk rag). Recent black crushed morocco, earlier large onlaid crimson crushed morocco label on front cover, raised bands, gilt titling on spine, top edge gilt. Housed in a later green cloth slipcase. Woodcut title vignette, 42 woodcut illustrations, two initials, and press-mark by Aristide Maillol, woodcut lettering and initials by Eric Gill. A Large Paper Copy. Schroeder, p. 9; "Artist & the Book" 172; "A Century for the Century" 15; Easton "The Red Count: The Life and Times of Harry Kessler," p. 371. Three pages with a tiny spot of foxing, but IN EXTREMELY FINE CONDITION, the binding unworn, the cuts in very fresh impressions, and the beautiful paper especially fresh, bright, and clean. This is one of the uniformly fine Cranach books, undertaken in what Franklin calls "a perfectionist spirit," and bringing together the most glittering names in English and German private printing at the time. In his bibliography of the press, Schroeder says of the Virgil, "If the press had ceased operation after printing this one book, Count Kessler could have retired secure in the knowledge that he could look back on a unique work." Franklin says that the book is a landmark in the private press movement, produced by the "brilliant quartet" of Maillol, Gill, Walker, and Johnston. Maillol designed and cut on wood the 43 illustrations for this work during the years 1912-14 and again (after the war) in 1925 at Banyuls in the Pyrenees, drawing on his immediate neighborhood and on his personal acquaintances for the themes of certain of his designs. In the words of Kessler's biographer, MullerKrumbach, they are ethereal as well as pastoral, and their "nymphs and naiads move contentedly in the sheer pleasure of existence." Hutner declares that "with the clarity and classic simplicity of the woodcuts juxtaposed and perfectly balanced with the weight and beauty of the type, the Eclogues is a monument of 20th century printing." Eric Gill cut all but a few of the initials (the others were done by Maillol); Cranach Press publisher Count Harry Kessler designed the layout; and Edward Prince (under the supervision of Emery Walker) cut the punches for the type after that used by Venetian printer Nicolas Jenson in 1473. The margins here (as apparently in all copies) occupy more than three times as much area as the text. The front cover's gilt-lettered red morocco title label recreates Eric Gill's engraved design for the leaf opposite the half title; the label almost certainly was appropriated from a copy in an earlier special binding done for the press, likely by Gerhard Prade of Leipzig, who produced notable bindings for the Cranach Press.

        The Original Charleston

      Paris: Editions Francis Salabert,, 1926. Musique de Cecil Mack et Jimmy Johnson dansé par Joséphine Baker dans l'Hyper-Revue des Folies Bergère "La Folie du Jour" … Quarto Original bifolium sheet music with pictorial covers, loosely inserted singlesheet, letterpress recto only. A little rubbed externally, slightly browned internally, particularly through contact with the loose sheet, but overall a very good example. First edition thus. Uncommon, just 3 copies on OCLC, Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Biblioteca Comunale di Trento, Zentralbibliothek Zurich. In 1926 Baker left the Revue Negre to join the Folies Bergère and her success became a sensation. The Charleston formed the finale of a frenetic show, the critic André Rouverge writing in the Mercure de France that "the Charleston, as danced à la Baker, fairly boils over with diabolic intensity". This score features a blissful dancing La Baker by R. de Valerio on the cover, and loosely inserted is a singlesheet "Théorie du Charleston" by Pradère-Niquet, Professeur de l'Académie Baraduc, giving detailed instructions for the dance.

        I fogli mancanti al codice di Leonardo da Vinci su'l volo degli uccelli nella Biblioteca Reale di Torino

      Rome: Danesi Editore,, 1926. a cura di Enrico Carusi. Folio. Contemporary presentation binding of full vellum, covers with frames blocked in gilt, front cover gilt lettered with the title and "La Libreria dello Stato" (Mussolini's State Library) and the central gilt device of the fasces, top edge gilt. Title printed in red and black, 9 full-colour reproductions of Leonardo's notebook with facing transcription, other drawings of Leonardo's reproduced in the text. Covers lightly rubbed and soiled, internally fine; an excellent copy, with the bookplate of Clarence and Helen Ward and an autograph note by Ted Peck describing the book's recovery tipped-in on an early blank. First edition, presentation copy from Mussolini to Adolf Hitler, number 152 of 300 copies only, this copy with a hand-lettered presentation leaf inserted before the text, "A Adolfo Hitler, Gennaio 1942?-XX" (i.e. dedicating this copy to Adolf Hitler, January 1942, in the twentieth year of the Fascist regime in Italy). The confusion of war delayed the intended gift—Mussolini's authority was on the wane, while January 1942 was the month of the notorious Wannsee Conference—and Mussolini did not meet Hitler in person until May that year, in Salzburg. This copy was recovered on 7 May 1945 from Hitler's Bavarian mountain retreat at Berchtesgaden by Ted Peck, one of the celebrated Monument Men. Peck records that he found the book on the floor of the hallway adjoining Martin Bormann's library and office in the Obersalzberg complex. Bormann was Hitler's personal secretary; he had committed suicide in Berlin on 2 May 1945. Edward (Ted) Staunton Peck (1908?-1970) was then serving as a sergeant technician in intelligence with the 101st Airborne Division. As a Monument Man, it was he who inventoried Hermann Goering's illicit collection of 3,100 art objects, which had been discovered in Unterstein, near Berchtesgaden. After the war, Dr Peck served for many years as the director of the Fisher Museum of Art at the University of Southern California. Peck gave this copy to his close personal friend Clarence Ward (1884?-1973), his former professor at Oberlin College, Ohio. Leonardo's codex on the flight of birds is one of his most famous manuscripts, inspirational to many of the 20th century pioneers of human flight. Composed c.1505/6, the manuscript was later broken up. After it had been reassembled, the complete codex was acquired by the Biblioteca Reale in Turin, Italy, where it currently resides. This edition, printing in facsimile the missing leaves, was published in 1926 to celebrate its acquisition.
