I have met with at least 3 cases of linkage in my own work. I sent a short paper to Punnet, of Cambridge, England, some months ago, pointing out how the results of my work and that of others was dead against the Cambridge hypothesis of somatic segregation, but he did not care to publish it. It seems to me strange that a critical biologist like Bateson should have led his followers in the assumption of such an unsupported and barren hypothesis. Columbia University is leading the world in this line of work. Yours truly, John Belling Botanist??Bridges was an American scientist, known for his contributions to the field of genetics. Along with Alfred Sturtevant and H.J. Muller, Bridges was part of the famous fly room of Thomas Hunt Morgan at Columbia University.? Wikipedia?Belling used plants such as lilies and hyacinths to demonstrate that segments between non-homogenous chromosomes can interchange. He was able to make accurate estimates of chromosome numbers and proposed that chromomeres, the small condensations along the chromosome, were individual genes.?

        Antheil and the Treatise of Harmony with Supplementary Notes.

      Chicago: Pascal Covici, Publisher, Inc., 1927 - Octavo. Original reddish-brown cloth, spine and front cover with lettering reversed out of black panels. Excellent condition. First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy to George Antheil, the subject of the book, inscribed by the author, "Mr Atheling to Mr Antheil, Oct. 1927, duly certified by E.P. 'for annihilating lucidity'." William Atheling was the pen name Pound had used from 1917 when writing music reviews for The New Age. The phrase "annihilating lucidity"was used in Covici's press release for the book. Although George Antheil styled himself the bad boy of American music and played avant-garde concerts with a revolver laid on the piano, he grew alarmed by Pound's enthusiasm and later distanced himself from this book. This edition is an expanded version of the limited edition of 40 copies only published at the Three Mountains Press in Paris in 1924.

        Original painting in gouache and wash with gold highlights on heavy art paper depicting parts of the interior of "The Old Met" in New York at 1411 Broadway between 39th and 40th Streets during a performance, the audience on numerous tiers. Signed "Gropper" at bottom right. Undated, but ca. 1965-66, very close to the date of demolition of "The Old Met" in 1967

      Gropper, a social realist, was a pupil of George Bellows and Robert Henri. He was active in New York as a painter, lithographer, cartoonist, and illustrator. His work is held in New York by both the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Deeply involved in the radical politics of the 1920s and 30s, Gropper contributed to such left wing publications as The Revolutionary Age, The Liberator, The New Masses, The Worker, and The Morning Freiheit. He went on a tour of Soviet Russia with the novelists Sinclair Lewis and Theodore Dreiser in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Russia Revolution in 1927. During the second half of the 1930s, he dedicated his art to efforts to raise opposition to fascism in Europe. After visiting Eastern Europe in 1948, he decided to make one painting a year as a memorial to the victims of the Warsaw Ghetto. Gropper was called before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1953. "The Metropolitan Opera said goodbye to its old house on April 16, 1966, with a sentimental gala farewell performance featuring nearly all of the company's current leading artists. The long time Met star soprano Zinka Milanov made her last Met appearance that night and among the many invited guests was soprano Anna Case who had made her debut at the house in 1909. The final performance at the opera house was given not by the Met but the Bolshoi Ballet, which concluded a short run of appearances on May 8, 1966... Despite a campaign to preserve the theater, it failed to obtain landmark status and the old Met was razed in 1967. " Wikipedia The present painting was executed very close to the date of the farewell performance referred to above.. 508 x 380 mm. (20" x 15"). Unframed. Remnants of paper tape to upper margin of verso.

        Minutes of a coalition of private, state and federal entities into the feasibility of growing tobacco in Australia.

      Melbourne:. 1927 - 1930.. Hardcover. Very good condition. The only known copy of the privately compiled Executive Committee Meeting Minutes of this Australian government investigation into growing high quality light tobacco in Australia. This is likely the copy of the American Director of Investigations, C. M. Slagg. The scheme was financed by the Commonwealth, the States, and the British Australasian Tobacco Company and conducted growing experiments throughout Australia in an effort to duplicate the quality of American tobacco. Charles Mervyn Slagg, the Director, was an American recruited for his broad experience in growing tobacco. He undertook growing projects throughout Australia, experimenting with different soil conditions, seed, fertilizers, irrigation and curing & processing methods in order to duplicate the elusive aroma and texture that the smoking public and the British Australasian Tobacco Company demanded (p71). Slagg, in a separately published report to the Executive Committee, wrote of the many obstacles encountered, "The Australian Tobacco Investigation is experimenting mainly in the production of the bright flue-cured type of tobacco, since this type at present forms the bulk of our leaf imports. It has been found that we have not one aroma to deal with, but many aromas, at least as many as there are States in the Commonwealth". (The Smoking Qualities of Australian Tobacco, A Preliminary Report Presented to the Executive Committee'; pp 28-29). The Investigation lasted 3 years after which Slagg returned to the US. The meetings were held in the Offices of the Development and Migration Commission. As the first meeting was attended by only two men-the Chairman of the DMC and the CEO of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research- and the gatherings seldom exceeded seven attendees (including a Recording Secretary), it is likely that few copies of these Minutes were produced, let alone survive. "The scheme was financed cooperatively by the tobacco company, the Commonwealth and the states, an arrangement that was the basic cause of failure. Understandably, Slagg responded to the pressures of Australian federalism by initiating small projects in each of the mainland states. The results of cultivation and curing tests were highly variable because of geographical dispersal and inadequate control; their scientific value was negligible. In 1930 Slagg resigned under the weight of criticism, and in the next few years the work was pushed from pillar to post." (Schedvin, C.B. Shaping Science and Industry: A History of Australia's Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, 1926-49. 1987, p.162). The Minutes start with the first meeting of May 39, 1927 and run through to November 7, 1930. The topics cover a broad range of subjects from projected field work to communications and expenditures. The index, which is an original typescript running 31 pages, includes such meeting topics as: Aroma experiments; Agreement with BAT Co; Air cured Tobacco; Blue Mould; Bathurst Experiments; Climatological Data; Chemical Experiments; Co- ordination and co-operation with state departments; Darnell-Smith, Dr., Visit to America; Economic Survey of Tobacco Growing Industry; Experimental Farm; Finance; Fertilizer Experiments; Growers; Heating & refrigerating plant; Imperial Economic Committee; Importation; Irrigation; New South Wales, progress reports; Victoria, South Australia and Queensland progress reports; Processing and Handling methods; Publications; New companies formed to manufacture in Australia; Queensland, Progress reports; Research, blue mould; Smoking Qualities of Tobacco; South Australia, progress reports; Tasmania progress reports; and Western Australia, progress reports. The work of this Investigation should not be confused with the Australian Parliament's Select Committee on the Tobacco-Growing Industry in Australia, that was convened in 1929, with its Report published in July 1930. The House Committee had a much narrower inquiry, within a short period of time. However, there was some involvement with this Investigative body. As the House Report noted, "Mr. C.M. Slagg, M.Sc, Director of the Australian Tobacco Investigation, was also invited by the Committee to be present... (he) was present at nearly all sittings throughout the inquiry, and asked questions of witnesses" [p. xviii]. Folio, 13 3/4", Index [31], 190pp, [1]. Pages 1-68 numbered with blue china marker by hand, the last 22pp unpaginated. Typed or mimeographed carbons, pages 1 to 168 numbered in blue pencil. Housed in a black cloth binder, "Brampton's Patent Instantaneous Binder" with typed label laid down at front board, no title at spine. The Australian Tobacco Investigation did publish an annual Bulletin; but we can find no holdings for these original Minutes, including OCLC and Trove.

        The Quantum Theory of Emission and Absorption of Radiation. SS. 243-265. In: Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series A, Vol. 114.

      (London Harrison ) 1927 - (24,5 x 16,5 cm). SS. 137-366. Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen und Tafeln. Moderne Broschur. Erste Ausgabe dieser bedeutenden Arbeit zur Entwicklung der Quantentheorie. - "A New Radiation Theory. The first results of this strategy were almost miraculous. First came his new radiation theory, in February 1927, which quantized for the first time James Clerk Maxwell's radiation in interaction with atoms. Previous quantum-mechanical studies of radiation problems, except for Jordan's unpopular attempt, retained purely classical fields. In late 1925 Jordan had applied Heisenberg's rules of quantization to continuous free fields and obtained a light-quantum structure with the expected statistics (Bose Einstein) and dual fluctuation properties. Dirac further demonstrated that spontaneous emission and its characteristics - previously taken into account only by special postulates - followed from the interaction between atoms and the quantum field. Essential to this success was the fact that Dirac's transformation theory eliminated from the interpretation of the quantum formalism every reference to classical emitted radiation, contrary to Heisenberg's original point of view and also to Schrödinger's concept of Psi as a classical source of field. This work was done during Dirac's visit to Copenhagen in the winter of 1927. Presumably to please Bohr, who insisted on wave-particle duality and equality, Dirac opposed the 'corpuscular point of view' to the quantized electromagnetic 'wave point of view.' He started with a set of massless Bose particles described by symmetric Psi waves in configuration space. As he discovered by 'playing with the equations,' this description was equivalent to a quantized Schrödinger equation in the space of one particle; this 'second quantization' was already known to Jordan, who during 1927 extended it into the basic modern quantum field representation of matter. Dirac limited his use of second quantization electromagnetic to radiation: to establish that the corpuscular point of view, once brought into this form, was equivalent to the wave point of view" (DSB). - Erstes Blatt gestempelt, sonst sauber und gut erhalten. - DSB 17, 224 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        HISTOIRE CHARMANTE DE L'ADOLESCENTE SUCRE D'AMOUR

      F.-L. Schmied, Paris 1927 - 318 x 241 mm. (12 1/2 x 9 1/2"). 8 p.l. (first four blank), 145 pp., [9] leaves (last four blank). FIRST EDITION. No. 50 OF 170 COPIES, SIGNED BY SCHMIED. Unbound as issued in original printed paper wrappers. With 14 full-page color wood engravings (including the frontispiece signed in pencil by Schmied) and 635 color panel borders, line fillers, and tailpieces in the Art Deco style, all by Schmied. Recto of limitations page with a facsimile inscription by the author to Schmied. Carteret IV, 263. Short ink mark to margin of title page, just the faintest isolated smudge or freckled foxing, otherwise a very fine copy, clean and fresh, with the fragile wrapper unsoiled and remarkably well preserved. This is an excellent example of the impressive book arts productions of François-Louis Schmied (1873-1941), a man who raised Art Deco to its highest level in the field of bibliophile publishing in France and someone who generally was responsible (as here) for every aspect of the production of his books. He engraved all of the woodcut decorations and plates for "Histoire," and printed them himself as well as designed the layout of the text, which was printed with the assistance of his son Théo and P. Guillemat. The text here is a love story set in the Middle East, the work of Dr. Joseph-Charles Mardrus (1868-1949), who described himself as "Muslim by birth and Parisian by accident." Born in Egypt and educated in Lebanon, the physician and eminent Orientalist was a fixture in the intellectual circles of Paris, where he helped to inspire the rage for all things Oriental. He produced a well-received, unexpurgated translation of "One Thousand and One Nights," and was commissioned by the French government to produce a translation of the Koran. He gives full credit to Schmied for the realization of the present work in his inscription, which reads: "Dear Schmied, it is to please you that this unpublished text has been developed. Without you, without your enthusiasm, it would still be in nothingness. Your friend, J. C. M."

        Original painting in gouache and wash with gold highlights on heavy art paper depicting parts of the interior of "The Old Met" in New York at 1411 Broadway between 39th and 40th Streets during a performance, the audience on numerous tiers. Signed "Gropper" at bottom right. Undated, but ca. 1965-66, very close to the date of demolition of "The Old Met" in 1967

      Gropper, a social realist, was a pupil of George Bellows and Robert Henri. He was active in New York as a painter, lithographer, cartoonist, and illustrator. His work is held in New York by both the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Deeply involved in the radical politics of the 1920s and 30s, Gropper contributed to such left wing publications as The Revolutionary Age, The Liberator, The New Masses, The Worker, and The Morning Freiheit. He went on a tour of Soviet Russia with the novelists Sinclair Lewis and Theodore Dreiser in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Russia Revolution in 1927. During the second half of the 1930s, he dedicated his art to efforts to raise opposition to fascism in Europe. After visiting Eastern Europe in 1948, he decided to make one painting a year as a memorial to the victims of the Warsaw Ghetto. Gropper was called before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1953. "The Metropolitan Opera said goodbye to its old house on April 16, 1966, with a sentimental gala farewell performance featuring nearly all of the company's current leading artists. The long time Met star soprano Zinka Milanov made her last Met appearance that night and among the many invited guests was soprano Anna Case who had made her debut at the house in 1909. The final performance at the opera house was given not by the Met but the Bolshoi Ballet, which concluded a short run of appearances on May 8, 1966... Despite a campaign to preserve the theater, it failed to obtain landmark status and the old Met was razed in 1967. " Wikipedia The present painting was executed very close to the date of the farewell performance referred to above.. 508 x 380 mm. (20" x 15"). Unframed. Remnants of paper tape to upper margin of verso.
