        Die Spezifizitat Serologischen Reaktionen

      Berlin: Julius Springer, 1933. Hard Cover. Very Good. INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR. [4], 123, [1] pages. 8vo. Tan cloth binding with black printed titles. A presentation copy marked on the front flyleaf "To Dr. Goebel sincerely, K. Landsteiner". Ex-library Goebel Collection (Rockefeller University), properly de-accessioned. Indications of removed library labels on spine, front board lower left, and front paste down. Shelf wear to the corners and head/tail spine, one page with a few pencil underlines. Overall a very good copy. Walther Frederick Goebel (12/24/1899-11/1/1993) was an American immunologist and an organic chemist, a National Academy of Sciences member and long time Rockefeller University professor. Karl Landsteiner was a colleague of Goebel';s at Rockefeller and was awarded the 1930 Nobel Prize in Medicine for 'his discovery of human blood groups'. Specifically, he explained the immunological nature of blood typing (i.e. someone with an A blood type could receive blood from an A donor because the A donor';s blood carries a non-foreign antigen while an A recipient could not receive from a B donor because the B donor';s blood has a foreign antigen that would be attacked by the A recipient';s immune system) and linked these blood groups to Mendelian genetics. This book, Die Spezifizitat Serologischen Reaktionen, ('The Specificity of Serological Reactions') outlines the methodology that Landsteiner used in his Nobel studies (and beyond). This monograph describes the immunological studies that were used to study cross-reactions between different individuals (as in the ABO blood example) and different species. In the case of the latter, these early techniques involved injecting serum (including antigens) from, for example, a pig, into, for example, a goat and allowing the goat to develop antibodies against the pig';s antigens. The goat';s antibodies would be isolated and used to study immune responses. For instance, the isolated goat antibodies should form a precipitate in the presence of pig serum (precipitate indicating antibody-antigen binding) while no reaction would be seen when the isolated goat antibodies were in the presence of, say, rabbit serum.

      Photograph. Near Fine to Fine and an extraordinary collection. Fine 7-3/4" x 9-3/4" studio portrait by Pinchot of New York of the brooding O'Neill INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the four-time Pulitzer Prize Winner to his wife: "To Carlotta--/with all my love,/Sweetheart!/Gene/Feb. '35," the year before O'Neill became the first American playwright to win the Nobel Prize. Signed photographs of O'Neill are distinctly uncommon. This is perhaps the finest in existence. Accompanied by a 6-1/2" x 8-3/4" Carl Van Vechten photograph of Carlotta O'Neill with Van Vechten's ink stamp identification on the rear and red ink annotations. INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the front of the photograph by Carlotta "To Dorothy & Saxe--/Dearest love/Carlotta 1933." Saxe Cummins was editor to O'Neill and William Faulkner among others. Also included is a scarce 5" x 7-1/2" photograph of Eugene O'Neill, Jr., the playwright's eldest son by his first of three wives, Kathleen Jenkins (O'Neill had one other son, Shane, an emotionally unstable drug addict who committed suicide and a daughter, Oona, who was cut out of O'Neill's life when at the age of 18 she married the 54-year old Charlie Chaplin.). INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the playwright's son to noted collector LaFayette Butler "with gratitude & best wishes." O'Neill's namesake committed suicide in 1950 at the age of 40, likely not very long after signing this photograph and three years before his father's death. This photograph is tipped at the top verso to a board but is otherwise Fine.
