        Observation on the function of peroxidase systems and the chemistry of the adrenal cortex. Description of a new corbohydrate derivative.

      London, Cambridge University Press, 1928. Royal8vo. In the original printed wrappers. In "The Biochemical Journal", Vol. 22, 1928. Entire issue offered. Wrappers with nicks and ligt overall soiling. A tear to last 7 leaves. Internally fine and clean. Pp. 1387-1409. [Entire issue: Pp. (8), 1341-1575, (2), XIV, (1).].. First printing of Szent-Györgyi's landmark paper in which he for the first time discovered and isolated "hexuronic acid" or "ascorbic acid", today commonly known as vitamin C. In 1937 he was awarded the Nobel in Medicine "for his discoveries in connection with the biological combustion processes, with special reference to vitamin C and the catalysis of fumaric acid"."Szent-Györgyi is most notably associated with the discovery of vitamin C. The discovery of vitamins themselves was recognized in 1929 in a Nobel Prize to Christiaan Eijkman and Gowland Hopkins. The search for vitamin C was then well underway in several labs. Ironically, the compound had already been isolated by Szent-Györgyi. Though no one-not even Szent-Györgyi-yet knew its identity." (DSB). "In 1928 Szent-Györgyi had proposed that hexuronic acid, a highly reducing substance that he had isolated from oranges, cabbages and adrenal glands, was responsible for the anti-scurvy properties of fruit and vegetables, that is, that hexuronic acid was vitamin C. Zilva disagreed, citing work that he had done showing that vitamin activity and reducing power were independent of one another. There the matter lay for four years until, in 1932, Szent-Györgyi, carried out experiments to see whether hexuronic acid would protect guinea pigs from scurvy [which it indeed did]". (Smith, Nutrition in Britain, P. 45). At the same time, for five years King's laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh had been trying to isolate the antiscorbutic factor in lemon juice using the original 1907 model of scorbutic guinea pigs which developed scurvy when not fed fresh foods but were cured by lemon juice. They had also considered hexuronic acid, but had been put off the trail when a coworker made the explicit (and mistaken) experimental claim that this substance was not the antiscorbutic substance. Finally, in late 1931, Szent-Györgyi gave Svirbely, formerly of King's lab, the last of his hexuronic acid with the suggestion that it might be the anti-scorbutic factor. By the spring of 1932, King's laboratory had proven this but published the result without giving Szent-Györgyi credit for it, leading to a bitter dispute over priority claims.Garrison & Morton 1059

        Für ein Württemberg der Arbeiter u. Bauern wählt Kommunisten! ... 35% der Bauern in der Sowjet-Union Steuerfrei

      Berlin: Hugo Eberlein, [1928]. Another of Slama's striking designs for the 1928 German general elections. Several versions exist of this poster, with the image remaining identical but the text changing to target specific audiences - the copy in the Vienna State Library, for example, replaces the lower block of text (here concerning taxation of farmers) with a demand for an eight-hour day for factory workers. We have discovered at least three such variants, none with apparent priority. Lithographed poster in four colors, 95cm x 70cm (ca 37-1/4" x 27-1/2"). Repaired tears with modest retouching to repaired areas, but no infill or other major restoration. Archivally backed on neutral paper. Grade B/B+.

        Well of Loneliness

      Jonathan Cape, 1928-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE. London: Jonathan Cape, 1928. 512 pp. Black cloth with gilt lettering. First edition, first printing, first issue. (Precedes all other editions such as the Paris edition of Pegasus. Stated "FIRST PUBLISHED MCMXXVIII" on copyright page, uncorrected first issue error on page 50: Whip instead of Whips.) Very Good hardcover. Lacks plain original jacket. Clean pages and sturdy binding. Tiny hole in cloth on front cover. A bit of rubbing and scratching to covers, slightly bumped corners. Wear to back paste down. In protective clear sleeve. A nice copy, in collectible condition.First issued July 27, 1928 by British publisher Jonathan Cape, The Well of Loneliness has become a classic of GLBT fiction. Its frank portrayal of lesbian relationships shocked the contemporary public, though. One opponent of the book declared, "I would rather give a healthy boy or a healthy girl a phial of prussic acid than this novel. Poison kills the body, but moral poison kills the soul." By the end of the year the book had been judged "obscene" and all copies for sale were ordered to be destroyed by British authorities. This is one of the copies that survived-- the very first issue before a minor textual error was corrected.

        Love Among the Chickens

      Herbert Jenkins 1928 - London. An interesting item . McClelland and Stewart published The Little Warrior in 1920, well all they did was take the US edition with Doran prelims and stamp their name in green ink on the base of the spine. There was then a gap of six years before they published The Heart of a Goof in 1926. During these years the 11 Herbert Jenkins titles starting with The Coming of Bill and ending with Carry on Jeeves were distributed by Ryerson Press with their label over the price on the spine. Piccadilly Jim was published by McClelland Goodchild and Stewart in 1917 from US sheets. Herbert Jenkins also had the same arrangement with his own books. So this is not a Canadian edition but the closest we have .There were 10,000 copies of the tenth printing and I suspect around 500 went to Ryerson.I think a similiar arrangement was made in South Africa but have yet to find proof .500 copies sounds about right as the population of Canada in 1920 was around 8.5 million with a lot of those being French speaking .

        THE GOLEM translated by Madge Pemberton

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Co.,. [1928]. original purple cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black, top edge stained black, fore-edge untrimmed.. A fine copy in bright, near fine art deco dust jacket (designed by E.. McKnight Kauffer) with light wear at edges, mainly head of spine. panel and upper corners and three faint damp stains to spine panel.. Quite scarce in jacket. (#20487). First edition in English, U.S. issue (made up from British sheets). Meyrink's first novel "prefigures that disastrous climax [World War I] to a century of growth and change. The phantasmagorical, threatened Prague of this novel - its wainscots haunted by a Golem who is more like a psychic fog than an actual entity, and the false polder of its ghetto withering under the baleful light of a new century - makes THE GOLEM into a pure urban fantasy: a tale whose setting, like some vast subterranean edifice, seems literally alive, organic, all-encompassing, Gothic. It is, however, like most twentieth-century urban fantasies distinguished from its Gothic ancestors through a sense that the fall of the city will be a bad omen for its inhabitants, not a release. At the same time, the pending destruction of Prague (and all of Europe itself) is treated by Meyrink with a deep ambivalence, and his next novels all tend to present the apocalypse as an occult cleansing of the material world so that higher unions of the spirit can be achieved." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 642. "Key work of German Expressionism." - Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-148. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1173. Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 642.

Elle est illustrée de quatre frontispices lithographiés, tirés en noir sur fond or, du peintre José Maria SERT, dédicataire de l'?uvre. Tirage limité à 331 EXEMPLAIRES, celui-ci UN des 275 numérotés sur PUR FIL (n°41). Cette édition en quatre tomes offre la version intégrale de LA PLUS GRANDE RÉUSSITE THÉÂTRALE de Paul Claudel. Commencée en 1919, achevée en 1924, cette pièce surplombe l'oeuvre dramatique de Claudel. Il s'agit, selon l'une de ses formules aux variantes multiples, d'un «énorme drame, mélange incongru de bouffonnerie, de passion et de mysticité ». La pièce fut créée en 1943 à la Comédie-Française par Jean-Louis Barrault, dans une version considérablement abrégée. Antoine Vitez poussera, lui, l'audace jusqu'à faire tenir l'intégrale en une seule représentation. ("En français dans le texte", n° 337). SÉDUISANT EXEMPLAIRE conservé dans son étui décoré d'origine ; les fragiles couvertures sont en TRÈS BEL ÉTAT, condition RARE. FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

"The press was at Waltham St Lawrence, in Berkshire. With Gibbings as its director and book designer it produced seventy-two books between 1924 and 1933, of which nineteen were illustrated by Gibbings himself. Forty-eight of its productions were illustrated with wood-engravings. Among the engravers whom Gibbings employed—several of whom were given their first commissions by him—were John Nash, David Jones, Eric Ravilious, Blair Hughes-Stanton, John Farleigh, and, most notably, Eric Gill…" (ODNB).
