        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. Scarce signed. Garrison/Morton 5/2576.2.

      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.

        10000 Mark Belohnung..,.Ausmisten! Ausmisten" Wählt Nationalsozialisten!

      Several small chips to edges. Some wear. VG German Political History Buchdruckerei Popp [Würzburg] n.d. [1933] 29x23cm This is an original single-side anti-Semitic election campaign placard issued by the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, apparently at Würzburg, during the final phase of the 1933 election which resulted in Adolf Hitler taking power. Text reads: "10000 Mark Belohnung erhält von den in ihrer Ruhe gestörten jüdischen Ausbeutern diejenlige Partei, welche die gemeinsten und schmutzigsten / Lügen die Nationalsozialisten herausbringt. Wer Wahlkampf ist auf dem Höhepunkt! Die Dreckflut aller Parteien / hat genen die einzig allein für das schaffende Volk kämpfende Nationalsozialistische deutsche Arbeiterpartei wiederum eingesetzt. Mit der infamsten Hetze, mit den gemeinsten Lügen und Verdrehungen, mit den niedrigsten persönliochen Verleumdungen glauben die Parteien, an der Spitze wie immer die Sklarek-Partei-Deutschlands ihren eigenen Zerfall aufhalten zu können. Volksgenossen, warum? 12 Jahre wartet das deutsche Volk schon auf das versprochene Leben uin Schönheit, Freiheit u. Würde. Dyummheit und Verrat der Parteibuchbonzen konnte nur die Verelendung sä mtlicher Volksschichten gebären. Die Unfähigkeit derer, die regiert haben, ist bewiesen, schon dürch den Zusammenbruch der deutschen Wirtschaft, der über 3 Millionen Erwerblose zur Folge hat. Diese Tatsache soll durch ein systematisches Lügenmanöver verschleiert werden. Wie sich jeder Verbrecher bemüht, seine Schyukld aud anfere abzuwälzen, so wollen die Bankrottpolitiker des neudeutschern Systems sich der nationalsozialistischen Abrechnung entziehen...."

        Death in the Woods and Other Stories

      New York: Liveright, n.d. [1933]. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. First Printing (no additional printings noted), and as such among the rarities of American publishing. The print run was interrupted after Liveright went into bankruptcy; few copies seem to have been released to the market (many were pulped) and so decent examples in jacket are quite uncommon. ABPC lists no copies at auction (save for this one) for the past 30 years. Tall, thick 8vo: [8],298pp. Publisher's coarsely woven tangerine cloth, spine stamped gilt in a black title block, top edge stained black, other edges untrimmed; price-clipped dust jacket. A Fine, square, unread copy; in a Near Fine jacket with several short closed tears and brief edge wear. Provenance: Bonhams Sale 20200 (Serendipity Books), Lot 1050. Rogers A5.& & & & After the resounding success of Winesburg, Ohio, Anderson went on to write 68 more short stories, publishing many of them in three important collections: The Triumph of the Egg (1921), Horses and Men (1923), and Death in the Woods (1933). The gothic stories in that final volume are a loose retelling of events from the narrator's childhood, as he attempts to explain a death and its relationship to other lives. A number of outstanding stories in these collections, including several of the sixteen appearing in Death in the Woods, "have suffered undeservedly from neglect." (Donald D. Kummings "Certain Things Last: The Selected Short Stories of Sherwood Anderson") Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.
