        Typed Letter Signed

      1935 - Two pages from Eliot to literary critic F.O. Matthiessen ("Matty"), written "to put in a good word for the boy," Alfred Satterthwaite, at the behest of Satterthwaite's step-father, John Cournos. Satterthwaite was applying "for a scholarship on some foundation in which you [Matthiessen] are in a position of authority." Eliot puts in what good words he can ("although my knowledge of him is very meagre") and then switches subjects to Matthiessen's book, which, although unnamed, would have been The Achievement of T.S. Eliot: "Your book seems to have been earning commendations here, except from the critics in whose eyes the subject matter is enough to damn it. It is impossible for me to regard such a book objectively. All I can say is that I hope that much of what you say is true. By the way, that is a good point about Rose La Touche. Was that pure inspiration, or did we ever mention the subject in conversation?" He closes with a brief note about Ted Spencer and Bonamy Dobree. The letter is signed, "T.S. Eliot." Nice literary and biographical content. On Criterion stationery, with staple holes to the upper left corners, and folded in fourths for mailing; near fine. Mailing envelope included.

Of Wolfe, Sinclair Lewis, the first American to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, said of Wolfe: "He may have a chance to be the greatest American writer. In fact I don't see why he should not be one of the greatest world writers." Sadly, Wolfe died at age 37 and thus had the shortest writing career of any major novelist during his time, lasting only about half as long as did the writing careers of Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and Faulkner. Upon Wolfe's death, Faulkner declared that Wolfe may have had the best talent of their generation. A Very Good + copy of the debut collection of short stories from one of the most important writers of modern American Literature who some compared to Walt Whitman. Due to Wolfe's untimely early death, signed copies of this debut work are uncommon. A Very Good + copy of a notable debut from one of America's internationally-acclaimed and most notable authors.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED with a Signed Photograph Both in the Hand of Screen Legend Lionel Barrymore

      Culver City, CA. [unpublished] circa 1935 - A personal letter from Lionel Barrymore to Mr. [Louis] Mayer written on Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studio stationery mounted with a handsome photograph of the actor inscribed "Best Wishes" and signed in his hand. Letter size stationery and 8" by 10" photo, handsomely mounted with buff board trimmed in blue and gold, framed in a tasteful burnished gold frame, glazed. All together approximately 15.5" by 21". 1 page and photograph. Both in a fine state of preservation. A remarkable piece of American motion picture history. A personal letter between one of the greatest film actors of all time and perhaps the most important man in Hollywood&#146;s long career. Lionel Barrymore was a member of the finest acting family in recent history with notable members from his parents generation &#146;til this very day. He stands out even in this great family and is remembered as one of film&#146;s greatest actors. Barrymore starred in over 200 films, most of which where made at M.G.M. studios. He also wrote, directed and produced films for the studio. Barrymore was the winner of an Academy Award for best actor and was nominated for best director. Louis Mayer was co-founder of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios which would soon after become the largest and most important studio of all time. They would produce for over 50 years a majority of America&#146;s most beloved and highest grossing films. In this fascinating letter Barrymore explains that he is writing because it is impossible for him to get off the set (not surprising with over 200 films under his belt) and also that he doesn&#146;t want to take to much of Mayer&#146;s time with "so many others waiting". Barrymore then goes on to make the unusual request that the studio give him a full month&#146;s payment of his salary instead of his usual payments. He states that this would be an "immeasurable help" and he mentions owing money. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Gottingen, math-fis. Kl., Fachgr. 6, 1 (1935). 8vo. [189]-245pp. Berlin: Weidmannsche Buchhandlung, 1935. 253 x 178 mm. Original green printed wrappers. Stamp on upper wrapper but fine and unopened. First Separate Edition. Garrison-Morton 254.1. One of the key conceptual papers in the early history of molecular biology. This paper represented the debut in genetics of the physicist Max Delbruck, a student and lifelong friend of Niels Bohr. Delbruck turned from quantum physics to biology after being inspired by Niels Bohr's speculations, in his 1935 lecture "Light and life," about the application of quantum mechanics to problems in biology. Delbruck won a share of the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine in 1969 for his discoveries concerning the replication mechanism and the genetic structure of viruses. "Ueber die Natur der Genmutation und der Genstruktur" (often referred to as "the green paper" after the color of its wrappers, or the "Dreimanner" paper after the number of its authors) is divided into four sections. The first, by Timofeeff-Ressovsky, describes the mutagenic effects of x-rays and gamma rays on Drosophila melanogaster; the second part, by Zimmer, analyzes Timofeeff-Ressovsky's results theoretically. The third and most remarkable section, by Delbruck, puts forth a model of genetic mutation based on atomic physics that "shows the maturity, judgment and breadth of knowledge of someone who had been in the field for years . . . its carefully worded predictions have stood the test of time" (Perutz, p. 557). The three authors of the paper "concluded that a mutation is a molecular rearrangement within a particular molecule, and the gene a union of atoms with which a mutation, in the sense of a molecular rearrangement or dissociation of bonds, can occur. The actual calculations of the size of the gene, deduced from calculations on the assumption of a spherical target, were not cogent, as Delbruck wryly admitted in his Nobel Prize lecture, but the entire approach to the problem of mutation and the gene adopted by the three collaborators was highly stimulating to other investigators" (DSB [suppl.]). The Timofeeff-Zimmer-Delbruck paper provided much of the material for Erwin Schrodinger's book What is Life? (1944), a work that takes a "naive physicist's" approach to the problems of heredity and variation; it is often cited as having inspired Watson, Crick, Wilkins and others to focus their careers on the problems of molecular biology. The relationship between Schrodinger's book and the Timofeeff-Zimmer-Delbruck paper is examined in detail in Max Perutz's 1987 paper "Physics and the riddle of life," which points out, among other things, that the two most important chapters in Schrodinger's book were paraphrased from "Ueber die Natur der Genmutation und der Genstruktur." "In retrospect, the chief merit of What is Life? is its popularization of the Timofeeff, Zimmer and Delbruck paper that would otherwise have remained unknown outside the circles of geneticists and radiation biologists" (Perutz, p. 558).
