Juristischer Teil a) Bericht des vom Reichsjustizministerium entsandten juristischen Sachverständigen, Senatspräsident Dr. Ziegler. b) Vernehmungsprotokolle". - Aus dem Vorwort: "...fast 25 Jahre hindurch war die Sowjetunion für die Welt ein Buch mit sieben Siegeln. Ihre Grenzen waren nach allen Seiten hin hermetisch abgeschlossen. Nur gelegentlich gelangten zuverlässige Nachrichten über das System und die Praxis des Bolschewismus in die andere Welt. Schon Jahre vor Beginn des zweiten Weltkrieges hat Deutschland die Welt auf das grausige Experiment aufmerksam gemacht, das an 190 Millionen Menschen in einem Raum von riesiger Ausdehnung vollzogen wurde. Aber die Welt blieb gleichgültig, trotz des umfangreichen Materials, das deutscherseits der Weltöffentlichkeit übergeben wurde. Erst durch die Ereignisse nach dem 22. Juni 1941 ergab sich die Möglichkeit, die Auswirkungen des bolschewistischen Regimes unmittelbar in Augenschein zu nehmen. Die Wirklichkeit übertraf alle vorher gemachten Darstellungen und Schilderungen. Ein Ausschnitt aus dieser sowjetischen Wirklichkeit sind die Massengräber von Winniza. Die Ergebnisse der Ausgrabungen und amtlichen Untersuchungen in Winniza geben heute jedermann die Möglichkeit, unmittelbar in die planmäßige Methodik des bolschewistischen Massenterrors Einblick zu nehmen. Die systematische Ausrottung von 10.000 Ukrainern aus den Kreisen der armen Landbevölkerung durch den NKWD in einer einzigen ukrainischen Stadt und in einer relativ kurzen Zeitspanne ist durch eine erdrückende Fülle Der Gebrauch von Kleinkaliber-Gewehren wäre auch viel zu umständlich und zeitraubend gewesen. Auch der gerichtsmedizinische Sachverständige kommt auf Grund der Lage und Richtung der meisten Schußverletzungen, namentlich aber der mehrfachen, zu dieser Auffassung. Insbesondere ist der Gebrauch von Kleinkaliber-Gewehren bei den fast horizontal verlaufenden Halsmarkschüssen undenkbar, denn es muß nach Lage der Sache davon ausgegangen werden, daß die Opfer, von Ausnahmen selbstverständlich abgesehen, im Stehen erschossen worden sind. Die Tatsache, daß ein Teil der Leichen Hinterkopfschüsse mit schräg aufwärts führendem Schußkanal und ein anderer Teil die tiefer liegenden Halsmarkschüsse mit fast horizontal verlaufenden Schußkanälen aufwies, gestattet lediglich den Rückschluß auf mehrere Tatausführer mit verschiedener Technik, von denen zweifellos Diejenigen, die die Hinterkopfschüsse abgaben, die größere Routine besaßen... Die Fälle, in denen neben der Handfesselung auch noch eine solche der Oberarme festzustellen war, lassen erkennen, daß diesen Opfern noch besondere Schmerzen zugefügt wurden. Dasselbe gilt für die Ermordeten, die Schlingen, Handtücher und Schals um den Hals oder Knebel im Munde aufwiesen... Der nackte Zustand einer Anzahl von Frauenleichen, zumal gerade derjenigen jüngeren und mittleren Alters, läßt wohl kaum einen anderen Schluß zu, als daß diese Frauen vor ihrer Ermordung geschändet worden sind. Eine andere plausible Erklärung für den von den Frauenleichen höheren Alters und den männlichen Leichen völlig abweichenden Befund ist jedenfalls nicht zu finden." - Erstausgabe, EA, erste Auflage, später Kriegsdruck in guter Erhaltung (Bibliotheksaufkleber auf Einband, Stempel auf Titelblatt und Seite 3, sonst sehr gut)

        Studies on the chemical nature of the substance including transformation of pneumococcal types. Induction of transformation by an deoxyribonucleic acvid fraction isolated from pneumococcus type III (137-158).

      - J. exp. Med., 79. New York, The Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, 1944, 8°, V, 679 pp., 65 Fig., 16 Taf., Leinenband der Zeit; St.a.Tit. FIRST DESCRIPTION of DNA - Oswald Theodore Avery (1877-1955) was a Canadian-born American physician and medical researcher. The major part of his career was spent at the Rockefeller Institute Hospital in New York City. Avery was one of the first molecular biologists and was a pioneer in immunochemistry, but he is best known for his discovery in 1944 with his co-workers Colin MacLeod (1909-1972) and Maclyn McCarty (1911-2005) that eoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is the basic material respnsibple for geneticv transformations. - ASA BEGINNER in science, Colin Munro MacLeod was granted the most wonderful of gifts, a key role in a major discovery that greatly changed the course of biology. - Great as this gift was, it came not as unalloyed treasure. On the contrary, for reasons that are not wholly clear even today, the demonstration by Avery, MacLeod, and McCarty that deoxyribonucleic acid is the stuff that genes are made of was slow to receive general acceptance and has never really been saluted in appropriately formal fashion. The event was originally recorded in the now famous paper of 1944 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine,' entitled: "Studies on the Chemical Nature of the Substance Inducing Transformation of Pneumococcal Types. Induction of Transformation by a Desoxyribonucleic Acid Fraction Isolated from Pneumococcus Type III." - The title tells the story; clearly this was an historic watershed. Sir MacFarland Burnett states that "the discovery that DNA could transfer genetic information from one pneumococcus to another heralded the opening of the field of molecular biology." Writing in Nature in the month before MacLeod died, H. V. Wyatt reports it as "generally accepted" that the field of molecular biology began with the appearance of this paper. Lederberg terms the work "the most seminal discovery of twentieth-century biology." Walsh MCDermott, COLIN MUNRO MACLEOD January 28, 1909-February 11, 1972 - - Garrison & Morton No. 255.3 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fable

      (Frederic Prokosch), New York 1944 - First edition. Marbled self-wrappers with pink printed label. 24mo. Fine. Out of a total edition of 44 copies, this appears to be one of the 22 copies on airmail paper for Europe; there were also 22 copies on Utopian Text paper for the U.S. Inscribed by the author: "For Emerald from Frederic with love." A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books," this one issued as a Christmas Greeting. Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions," which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. While he did reprint some of the butterfly books between 1978-1980, the provenance of this copy and the owner's notes that accompany it indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. Rare. *OCLC* locates five copies (of the total edition) in institutions. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Romans fantastiques. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      S.n. (Journal des débats) 1944 - - S.n. (Journal des débats), s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1944), 13,5x21,5cm & 2 pages in-4, 2 1/2 pages in-8. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 2 pages et demie in-8 publiée dans le numéro du 4 Mai 1944 du Journal des Débats. Manuscrit complet à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreuses ratures, corrections et ajouts. Chronique littéraire publiée à l'occasion de la parution de Prélude à l'apocalypse de Robert Poulet. On joint le tapuscrit complet. Entre avril 1941 et août 1944, Maurice Blanchot publia dans la "Chronique de la vie intellectuelle" du Journal des Débats 173 articles sur les livres récemment parus. Dans une demi-page de journal (soit environ sept pages in-8), le jeune auteur de "Thomas l'obscur" fait ses premiers pas dans le domaine de la critique littéraire et inaugure ainsi une oeuvre théorique qu'il développera plus tard dans ces nombreux essais, de "La Part du feu" à "L'Entretien infini" et "L'Écriture du désastre". Dès les premiers articles, Blanchot fait preuve d'une acuité d'analyse dépassant largement l'actualité littéraire qui en motive l'écriture. Oscillant entre classiques et modernes, écrivains de premier ordre et romanciers mineurs, il pose, dans ses chroniques, les fondements d'une pensée critique qui marquera la seconde partie du XXe. Transformé par l'écriture et par la guerre, Blanchot rompt, au fil d'une pensée exercée "au nom de l'autre", avec les violentes certitudes maurassiennes de sa jeunesse. Non sans paradoxe, il transforme alors la critique littéraire en acte philosophique de résistance intellectuelle à la barbarie au coeur même d'un journal "ouvertement maréchaliste": "Brûler un livre, en écrire, sont les deux actes entre lesquels la culture inscrit ses oscillations contraires" (Le Livre, In Journal des Débats, 20 janvier 1943). En 2007, les Cahiers de la NRF réunissent sous la direction de Christophe Bident toutes les chroniques littéraires non encore publiées en volumes avec cette pertinente analyse du travail critique de Blanchot : "romans, poèmes, essais donnent lieu à une réflexion singulière, toujours plus sûre de sa propre rhétorique, livrée davantage à l'écho de l'impossible ou aux sirènes de la disparition. (.) Non sans contradictions ni pas de côté, et dans la certitude fiévreuse d'une oeuvre qui commence (.) ces articles révèlent la généalogie d'un critique qui a transformé l'occasion de la chronique en nécessité de la pensée." (C. Bident). Les manuscrits autographes de Maurice Blanchot sont d'une grande rareté. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Studies on the chemical nature of the substance including transformation of pneumococcal types. Induction of transformation by an deoxyribonucleic acvid fraction isolated from pneumococcus type III (137-158).

      . J. exp. Med., 79. New York, The Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, 1944, 8°, V, 679 pp., 65 Fig., 16 Taf., Leinenband der Zeit; St.a.Tit.. FIRST DESCRIPTION of DNA - Oswald Theodore Avery (1877-1955) was a Canadian-born American physician and medical researcher. The major part of his career was spent at the Rockefeller Institute Hospital in New York City. Avery was one of the first molecular biologists and was a pioneer in immunochemistry, but he is best known for his discovery in 1944 with his co-workers Colin MacLeod (1909-1972) and Maclyn McCarty (1911-2005) that eoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is the basic material respnsibple for geneticv transformations. - ASA BEGINNER in science, Colin Munro MacLeod was granted the most wonderful of gifts, a key role in a major discovery that greatly changed the course of biology. - Great as this gift was, it came not as unalloyed treasure. On the contrary, for reasons that are not wholly clear even today, the demonstration by Avery, MacLeod, and McCarty that deoxyribonucleic acid is the stuff that genes are made of was slow to receive general acceptance and has never really been saluted in appropriately formal fashion. The event was originally recorded in the now famous paper of 1944 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine,' entitled: "Studies on the Chemical Nature of the Substance Inducing Transformation of Pneumococcal Types. Induction of Transformation by a Desoxyribonucleic Acid Fraction Isolated from Pneumococcus Type III." - The title tells the story; clearly this was an historic watershed. Sir MacFarland Burnett states that "the discovery that DNA could transfer genetic information from one pneumococcus to another heralded the opening of the field of molecular biology." Writing in Nature in the month before MacLeod died, H. V. Wyatt reports it as "generally accepted" that the field of molecular biology began with the appearance of this paper. Lederberg terms the work "the most seminal discovery of twentieth-century biology." Walsh MCDermott, COLIN MUNRO MACLEOD January 28, 1909-February 11, 1972 - - Garrison & Morton No. 255.3

        Stephen Hero

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1944. Part of the first draft of &#39;A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man&#39;. Edited with an introduction by Theodore Spencer. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Bookseller&#39;s ticket to the front pastedown. Some minor foxing to the edges; an excellent copy in the slightly toned jacket that has some nicks to the extremities. First UK edition, first impression. Stephen Hero is the abandoned first draft of what was later to become Joyce&#39;s Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, saved from the fire (into which Joyce had thrown it) by his wife and published posthumously. Described by Theodore Spencer as "one of the best descriptions of a growing mind that has ever been written", this autobiographical fragment survives as proof of Joyce&#39;s nascent genius.
