      - FIRST EDITION OF A THREE VOLUME LANDMARK SERIES OF PAPERS PROVIDING THE FIRST MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS OF EPIDEMICS as well as "the first mathematical model that could be used to describe an influenza epidemic" (Coburn, "Modeling influenza," BMC Medicine, 7, 2009, 1741). "Mathematical modeling of epidemics goes back to 1927 with the formulation of [these] classical equations" Lewis, Network Science, 8.1.1). The Kermack-McKendrick model is known as the Susceptible-Infections-Recovered (SIR) model and is used to depict the number of people infected with a contagious illness in a closed population over time. To simulate an influenza epidemic the model, Kermack and McKendrick developed the pioneering threshold theorem that enables the interval between epidemics and their size to be studied. "According to this, the introduction of infectious cases into a community of susceptibles would not give rise to an epidemic if the density of susceptibles was below a certain critical value. Once the critical value was exceeded, then there would be an epidemic of magnitude sufficient to reduce the density of susceptibles as far below the threshold as it originally was above" (Cliff, Deciphering Global Epidemics, 26). [Kermack and McKendrick's] SIR model has been used as a basis for all subsequent influenza models" (Lewis). Furthermore, beyond influenza models, "most modern mathematical epidemiology" is based on these classic papers (Watts, Six Degrees, 332). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Harrison & Sons, Ltd. Three volume 4to. (10 x 7 inches; 250 x 175mm. Ex-libris: Small library stamps on front and rear end papers (IBM Research Laboratories); no other library markings whatsoever.

      New York: Random House. 1933. First. First trade edition. Corners and spine ends worn and a little frayed, a good only copy lacking the dustwrapper. However, Inscribed by the author to Mercedes de Acosta: "Inscribed for Mercedes de Heusta(sic) with so much pleasure in seeing you here. Faithfully, Robinson Jeffers. Tor House, Carmel, California. November, 1933." De Acosta was a writer and actress, and a flamboyant Cuban-born lesbian linked romantically to Greta Garbo, Isadora Duncan, Marlene Dietrich, and many others, and who apparently acted as something of a facilitator in artistic circles (late in her life she championed and promoted a young Andy Warhol). .

        Post Junior Detective Corps and the Melvin Purvis Junior G-Man Corps cereal premiums

      Battle Creek, Michigan: General Foods Corporation. 1933-1936. An archive of Post Junior Detective Corps and the Melvin Purvis Junior G-Man Corps cereal premiums, including 10 pamphlets, seven metal badges and original mailing envelope, all issued to consumers of Post Toasties, a popular breakfast cereal. Stapled wrappers with pencil owner name, wear at the extremities, a couple with loose sheets; five pamphlets with punch holes and attached by two ring binders; and badges of gold and silver metal, each measuring approximately 1.5" x 1.5" and ranging from lightly to moderately rubbed. Overall very good plus.The group is composed of "Junior G-Men" instructional booklets (with two duplicates); a casebook; a secret operations manual; promotional brochure of "swell prizes"; a form (apparently removed from another booklet) partially completed in pencil (and in earnest: "I take this solemn pledge as part of my service to the corps and the ideals for which it stands"); and seven pin-back badges issued as youngsters moved up the ranks from "Detective" to "Captain." The color brochure illustrates other premiums available in exchange for box-tops, including toy pistols, whistles, and the granddaddy of premiums, the "G-Man Squad Gun" with "rat-tat-tat-tat" sounds and "flint and steel sparking device." A wonderful reminder of simpler times when children were encouraged to follow the exploits of the F.B.I. as it hunted down criminals such as John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, and Pretty Boy Floyd -- and shot them dead. .

        Original Typescript of "Tribute to a Hero"

      1933 - 23 pages, carbon typescript, with approximately three dozen changes made in Cain's hand, and more than a dozen additional small variations between this text and the published version. Published in American Mercury in November 1933, "Tribute to a Hero," is an autobiographical piece about the Cain family following the father's 1903 job change from St. John's College at Annapolis to Washington College at Chestertown, MD, and the culture shock that ensued from this move to a "hick place" from one of "smartness, competence, and class," a state of affairs that was partially redeemed by the actions of "a great man" (with an assist from Cain's father) on the occasion of a Washington College-Maryland Agricultural College football game. Published the year before his first novel, The Postman Always Rings Twice (and following Our Government in 1930, nonfiction based on Cain's column for New York World). Called "one of Cain's finest essays" by David Madden in James M. Cain: Hard-Boiled Mythmaker. Carbon paper a bit yellowed, some pencil rubbing, not affecting text; near fine. An early manuscript of a boyhood epiphany by a writer who gained a place in the literary pantheon for his famous first novel, which is still considered one of the high spots of American hard-boiled fiction.
