      London: R. Cobden-Sanderson, 1929. London: R. Cobden-Sanderson, 1929. Whistler, Rex & Various Authors. THE NEW FORGET-ME-NOT. A Calendar. A limited edition of 360 copies (this one is #341) signed by the incomparable Rex Whistler whose charming illustrations make this book an exciting work of art. The fact that there are dozens of prose contributions to THE NEW FORGET-ME-NOT by virtually all of the leading writers of the day surely is testament to Whistler's (well-connected) popularity. A Fine copy in half-vellum and decorated boards, the blue vellum spine and corners have faded to pale whitish-blue (as in most copies we've examined, an organic flaw in the book's production as this book otherwise is nearly as new). What is remarkable about this particular copy is that a previous owner, likely the initial owner, created a home-made protective cover for the book so that THE ORIGINAL DUST JACKET IS IN FINE IMPECCABLE CONDITION with only the most minor of faults. The eye appeal is rather spectacular. Complete with rare errata slip, often missing.. Signed. First Edition. Pictorial Cover. Fine/Fine. Illus. by Rex Whistler.

This copy is inscribed by Robinson Jeffers to his friend and fellow author James M. Hopper. Jeffers inscribed this volume at Tor House, the home he built for his family in Carmel-by-the-Sea in California and the location at which he wrote the majority of his novels. Both Jeffers and Hopper, along with their contemporaries George Sterling, Upton Sinclair, Sinclair Lewis, and Jack London, were part of the group of authors that helped establish Carmel as a literary and artistic refuge in Monterey County. Although neither was a native of California, both Jeffers and Hopper ultimately settled in Carmel. Dear Judas is a collection of eight poems, including two longer poems, "The Loving Shepherdess" and "Dear Judas," as well as six shorter verses, "The Broken Balance," "Birth-Dues," "The Humanist's Tragedy," "Evening Ebb," "Hands," and "Hooded Night." In the titular poem, Jeffers retells the story of Jesus's passion story as a Noh play. In "The Loving Shepherdess," Jeffers tells the story of a female Christ figure as she travels up the California coast towards her ultimate fate of death during childbirth.. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

"Look Homeward, Angel is one of the most important novels of my life. . . . It's a wonderful story for any young person burning with literary ambition, but it also speaks to the longings of our whole lives; I'm still moved by Wolfe's ability to convey the human appetite for understanding and experience" (Elizabeth Kostova).

        Seven offprints on genetics and radiation

      , 1929–30. 1929–30. The Gene as the Basis of Life (Proceedings of the International Congress of Plant Sciences Volume 1, pages 897–921, 1929); The Method of Evolution (The Scientific Monthly, Volume 29, pages 481–505, December, 1929); Evidence that Natural Radioactivity is Inadequate to Explain the Frequency of "Natural" Mutations (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Volume 16, Number 4, pages 277–285, April 1930); Types of Visible Variations Induced by X-Rays in Drosophila (Journal of Genetics, Cambridge University Press, Volume 22, Number 3, July 1930); Oenothera-Like Linkage of Chromosomes on Drosophila (Journal of Genetics, Cambridge University Press, Volume 22, Number 3, July 1930); Radiation and Genetics (The American Naturalist, Volume 64, May–June 1930); Are Progressive Mutations Produced by X-Rays? (Genetics, Volume 15, pages 495–578, November 1930). 7 offprints. Original printed wrappers, staple bound. Ownership ink stamps to upper wrappers of Johns Hopkins biologist Samuel Ottmar Mast and University of Rochester zoologist John R. Buck, identifying notes to wrappers in ink. Some light rubbing and creasing and occasional faint spots to wrappers. An excellent set. Seven offprints on genetics and radiation, the body of research for which the author won the Nobel Prize in 1946. Two of the present offprints, "Oenothera-like linkage of chromosomes in Drosophila" and "Evidence that natural radioactivity is inadequate to explain the frequency of 'natural' mutations", were chosen by Muller to be included in his 1961 Studies in Genetics, which collects his 100 most significant papers. Two other offprints, "The Method of Evolution" and "The Gene as the Basis of Life" are stamped "Compliments of the Author". Herman J. Muller (1890–1967) began his career in the fruit fly genetics laboratory of Thomas Hunt Morgan in 1910, studying the interrelationship of linked genes, and then moved to Columbia University, where he studied genetic mutations. "He formulated in 1918, 1920, 1921, and 1926 the chief principles of spontaneous gene mutation as now recognized, including those of most mutations being detrimental and recessive, and being point effects of ultramicroscopic physico-chemical accidents arising in the course of random molecular motions (thermal agitation). At the same time he put forward the conception of the gene as constituting the basis of life, as well as of evolution, by virtue of its possessing the property of reproducing its own changes, and he represented this phenomenon as the cardinal problem of living matter. In late 1926 he obtained critical evidence of the abundant production of gene mutations and chromosome changes by X-rays (published 1927)" (Nobel committee). Muller was an early advocate of radiation safety. He warned about its negative effects in humans years before the development of atomic weapons, and, awarded the Nobel only a year after the atomic bombing of Japan, used his public prominence to advocate against nuclear weapons. A nice set of these uncommon offprints.
