        Mutations of bacteria from virus sensitivity to virus resistance.New York: Brooklyn Botanic Garden, 1943.

      First edition of Luria and Delbrück's 'fluctuation test,' one of the most important experiments in the history of biology, "the founding document of modern bacterial genetics" (<i>New DSB</i>). "Bacterial genetics was born with the publication in 1943 of the paper by Luria and Delbrück reporting the fluctuation test, and the event has been compared to the birth of genetics itself, in 1865, on the appearance of Mendel's paper" (Judson, p. 56). Luria and Delbrück shared the 1969 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with their longtime collaborator Alfred Hershey for "discoveries concerning virus replication and genetics and ... the importance of your contributions to the biological and medical sciences." Luria also played a role in the establishment of molecular biology, as his first graduate student was James D. Watson.<br/><br/> Luria and Delbrück met for the first time in December 1940 and the two immediately began to collaborate. "They arranged to spend the summer of 1941 at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories, in New York, investigating the genetic and biochemical properties of bacteriophage and its host <i>Escherichia coli</i>. Their first joint publication described the curious way that two different strains of virus interfere with each other's growth when both infect a colony of bacteria. They soon began to consider the implication of virus research for questions of resistance and evolutionary adaptation. <br/><br/> "A few weeks after he arrived in Bloomington, Luria got an idea for an experiment one Saturday night while watching a colleague play a slot machine at a faculty dance. Because he and Delbrück had first worked with bacterial resistance to phage, Luria had considered the problem of how that resistance arose. He considered two possible hypotheses: that the resistance was somehow triggered by the presence of bacteriophage, or that some of the bacteria were already resistant as a result of random genetic mutations. However, it was unclear how to test these possibilities experimentally. <br/><br/> "As he teased his friend about gambling, Luria realized that mutations in bacteria could be considered analogous to jackpots. He saw that jackpots in an un-programmed slot machine are a series of random events that could be described with a Poisson distribution of rare independent events. Luria hypothesized that if bacterial resistance to bacteriophage was the result of spontaneous random mutations, then it would appear in a random distribution of "jackpots" in a series of cultures. Some cultures could have many resistant colonies while others could have none. If, on the other hand, resistance was acquired as a result of contact with phage, resistant colonies would be evenly distributed across all cultures. In either case, the average number of resistant colonies across all cultures could be the same, but the distribution would indicate whether the cause was spontaneous or not. <br/><br/> "Luria ran the experiment with a, a virulent strain of phage, and as he anticipated, he found several jackpots randomly distributed among the plates. Luria was fortunate to have chosen virulent phage. If he had used a temperate strain, he would have seen that the presence of phage did induce resistance, and he would have concluded that it was acquired rather than hereditary. Excited by his results, Luria consulted with Delbrück, who noted that the experiment also provided a way to determine mutation rates with greater precision than had been possible before. <br/><br/> "This experiment, known as the fluctuation test, was published in <i>Genetics</i> in 1943. The implications of Luria and Delbrück's work went far beyond the handful of researchers interested in phage. As Luria and others have pointed out, the 1943 paper dealt a blow to the neo-Lamarckian view that viruses somehow induced mutations in bacteria. In a 1947 review, Luria noted that bacteriology had been "one of the last strongholds of Lamarckism," because of the difficulty in providing direct evidence for the existence of both Mendelian traits and the characteristic Darwinian criteria of random change (p. 1). The fluctuation test marked the beginning of Luria's appreciation for the evolutionary implications of his genetics research, and his interest in larger biological questions was evident in his publications through the 1950s. Gunther Stent's classic textbook <i>Molecular Genetics</i> equates this publication with Gregor Mendel's 1865 paper on "Versuche über Pflanzenhybriden" (Experiments on plant hybrids), and historian Thomas Brock identifies it as the founding document of modern bacterial genetics" (<i>New DSB</i>).<br/><br/> Luria (1912-1991) was born and educated in Turin, but after fleeing first from Mussolini to France, and then from the Nazis to the United States in September 1940, he secured a position at Bloomington, Indiana, in 1943. Delbrück (1906-1981) was a product of Germany's academic and intellectual aristocracy. After obtaining a PhD in theoretical physics at Bristol, he spent the summer of 1931 with Bohr in Copenhagen, where his interests first started to turn to biology. Returning to Berlin, he wrote a paper that combined experimental data and the quantum theoretical idea of atoms residing in "energy wells" to account for both genetic stability and the occurrence of mutations in response to energetic ionizing radiation. Fleeing the Nazis he moved in 1937 to Caltech, where he embarked on a program of phage research that continued with his appointment in 1940 to the faculty of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. <br/><br/> H. F. Judson, <i>The Eighth Day of Creation</i>, 1979.. Pp. 491-511 in Genetics, Vol. 28, No. 6, 1943. 8vo (248 x 171 mm), pp. 441-542, [12].

        Archive of original art]: Greeting Card Art featuring Anthropomorphic Animals and other subjects

      1943 - 19 different works on 18 leaves of white card stock (one has two images on one leaf). Various sizes (10" x 11", 14" x 10", and similar) in several different media, mostly airbrushed and/or pen and ink. Some modest smudging in the margins, one has a neat crease, mostly near fine. Two are color tempura, the rest are black and white. Unsigned but apparently by the same artist. Most are date-stamped on the verso between 1940 and 1943, and have printer's notations in the margins. Within the group there is a proliferation of ducks and bunnies, and other cute animals, as well as more traditional figures. Included are obvious Easter cards, get-well cards, wedding cards, Father's Day and Mother's Day cards, new arrivals birth cards, etc., as well as one including a man with a harem girl and a caricature of a black person. Another has a duck in a straw boater, with a detached arm holding binoculars: presumably the arm would have been printed, cut out, and pinned on as a moveable element. Exceptionally well accomplished. A charming collection

        LASSIE COME HOME

      1943. KNIGHT, Eric. LASSIE COME HOME. Chicago: John C. Winston Company, [1943]. 8vo., pictorial orange cloth, with a picture of Lassie on the front cover. First Edition, ninth printing. Believe it or not, apparently signed by Lassie! On the color portrait frontispiece of Lassie is an original ink paw print followed by an inscription in ink: "Lassie's signature. 11-17-43, Witness, W. Tyson." The film version of this book, starring Roddy McDowall and Elizabeth Taylor, was released in December, 1943. Lassie is actually a rough collie named "Pal"- so this would be Pal's footprint. I have tried to research W. Tyson but with little success. There is an ink presentation: "To Jerry, from Aunt Wilma" on a front blank page. Books signed by Knight are scarce because he was killed in World War II- just a few years after this book was published and books "signed" by Lassie are probably equally scarce. Knight was killed in 1943 when his plane was shot down in the Caribbean, reportedly by a German U-boat that mistook his plane for one that was taking President Roosevelt to Casablanca. There is obviously no way to verify Lassie's [Pal's] paw print but I have little doubt that it is not authentic. Very Good (little wear & soil covers; a tiny bit of ink from the paw signature has transfered to the title page). $750.00.

        The Gremlins

      New York: Random House,, 1943. From the Walt Disney Production. Quarto. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in full red morocco, titles to spine gilt, single rule to boards gilt, block to front board gilt with multi-coloured morocco onlay of seven cavorting gremlins, twin rule to turn-ins, dark green endpapers, gilt edges. Illustrated throughout in colour and black and white. A fine copy. First Edition, First Printing. Roald Dahl's first book and his only collaboration with Walt Disney, The Gremlins was written as a promotional device for a feature-length Disney animation that was never produced, partly because the studio could not establish firm copyright in the "gremlin" characters (Dahl claimed to have invented them, though they had been common currency in the RAF and had appeared in print at least once before) and partly because the British Air Ministry wanted final approval of the script and production. It was eventually agreed that royalties would be split between the RAF Benevolent Fund and Dahl. The book is still described on the title and the front cover as being "From the Walt Disney Production", although the Disney studio had written to Dahl in August 1943 cancelling any further preproduction work.

        The War Situation", A Speech before the Parliament of England on 11th November 1942 By The Right Honourable Winston S. Churchill

      Kingsport Press, Kingsport, Tennessee 1943 - First edition, only printing. This extremely scarce wartime speech pamphlet was a limited edition of only 400 copies. Collectors take note: according to Churchill bibliographer Ronald Cohen, as early as 1953 noted Churchill collectors were already looking for copies and unable to find them. The pamphlet publishes Churchill's 11 November 1942 speech to Parliament discussing the War Situation, including the Battle of Egypt. This speech was subsequently included in The End of the Beginning under the title "The War Situation". The binding for this pamphlet is quite attractive, featuring pale blue-gray card wraps bound with cord and bearing a white title label on the front cover. This copy is in remarkable, nearly pristine, extraordinarily fine condition. The covers are clean and bright with virtually no wear. They would be flawless but for the slightest, barely visible hint of soiling to the right of the title block on the front cover. The contents are immaculate - crisp, clean, bright, and tight with no spotting and no inscriptions. This is truly as good as will be found. Protected in a removable archival mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A177, Woods A89/I [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
