        22 offprints, mimeographs, etc. on molecular biology and bacterial genetics, with two others.

      1947-1968 1947 - Jacob, Francois (1920- ); Monod, Jacques (1910-75); Lwoff, Andre (1902-94); & Brenner, Sydney (1927- ). Group of 22 offprints, mimeographs, etc. on molecular biology and bacterial genetics, together with 2 related papers by other authors. Various sizes. 1947-1968. Together in one volume, cloth, "Institut Pasteur" in gilt on the spine. Overall good to very good; see detailed condition descriptions below. From the library of G. G. and Elinor Meynell, authors of Theory and Practice in Experimental Biology (1970), with their address label on the front endpaper and ownership signatures on several of the offprints.First / First Separate Editions. Jacob, Monod and Lwoff, all colleagues at the Institut Pasteur, received the 1965 Nobel Prize in physiology / medicine for their discoveries concerning genetic control of enzyme and virus synthesis-discoveries that "opened up a new field of research that deserved to be called 'molecular biology'" (Magill, The Nobel Prize Winners: Physiology or Medicine, II, p. 921). Their work answered the fundamental question of how the hereditary information contained in DNA can be translated into the chemical processes that synthesize cellular proteins (this question had been posed most succinctly and explicitly in Francis Crick's theoretical paper "On protein synthesis" [1957], which laid the groundwork for over a decade's worth of research in this area). Brenner, another key figure in this field, worked with Jacob and Matthew Meselson on providing experimental evidence for messenger RNA; he was awarded a share of the 2002 Nobel Prize for his discoveries concerning genetic regulation of organ development and programmed cell death.The collection we are offering here focuses largely on the Nobel Prize-winning work done by the Institut Pasteur group-Lwoff, Jacob and Monod-in the 1950s and 1960s. The work can be divided into four sections: (1) lysogeny and bacterial conjugation (2) expression of the genetic material via messenger RNA (3) the regulation of the genetic activity of bacterial cells by operons(4) the organization of bacterial genetic material. In the following paragraphs we will attempt to highlight the more important papers in this remarkable collection; however, all the papers here touch upon these central questions of molecular biology.Lysogeny, defined as the hereditary ability to produce the bacteriophage virus, is a peculiar type of infection in which the phage becomes part of the genetic material of a bacterial cell; in this non-infective form (prophage) it can then be inherited by succeeding generations of cells, becoming virulent only when some environmental stimulus causes the bacterium to produce and release phage. "Lysogeny brought a model for the interrelation between a virus and a cell. And also a model for the possible mode of action of carcinogenic agents, which could disturb something in this balance" (Judson, p. 368). Lwoff studied this phenomenon intensively in the late 1940s and early 1950s, successfully demonstrating the genetic nature of lysogeny (which was disputed by several scientists, including Delbruck) and discovering how it is induced. In 1953 he published an important review of the subject ("Lysogeny," Bacteriological Review 17; see no. 2 below). Lysogeny was also studied by Jacob and Elie Wollman, whose paper, "Induction of phage development in lysogenic bacteria" (CSH Symposia on Quant. Biol. 18 [1953]; see no. 5 below) summarizes what had been learned about lysogeny as of that date.Lwoff's work on lysogeny inspired Jacob and Wollman to investigate the phenomenon of bacterial conjugation (the transfer of genetic information from a male donor bacterium to a female recipient, resulting in genetic recombination) to see if they could discover where in the bacterium's genetic material the prophage was located. In 1955, working with a highly recombinant strain of E. coli (K12) discovered by William Hayes, Jacob and Wollman performed what came to be known as their "coitu [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      London - C and J Temple Ltd., 1947. London - C and J Temple Ltd., 1947 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A signed, illustrated edition of Gaskell's well-loved novel Cranford which was first published in 1851 as a serial in the magazine Household Words, which was edited by Charles Dickens. With signature of illustrator Arthur Wragg to title page. With engraved illustrations throughout. First edition thus. Arthur Wragg (1903 - 1976) was a British illustrator. His stark poster-like artwork often dealt with themes of social alienation and spiritual emptiness. All his work was done for publication, rather than in 'fine art' media such as paintings or series of prints. As a result, he has been neglected in comparison with contemporaries such as Graham Sutherland and John Piper, but Wragg's choice of medium was an ideological one. As a socialist and pacifist, Wragg wanted his art to speak directly to common people rather than to art-lovers. Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell (1810 - 1865), often referred to simply as Mrs Gaskell, was a British novelist and short story writer during the Victorian era. Her novels offer a detailed portrait of the lives of many strata of society, including the very poor, and as such are of interest to social historians as well as lovers of literature. Condition: In a cloth binding. Externally, generally smart but with some bumping and fading to extremities and the very slight marks to front board. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean with only the odd spot, mostly to endpapers. Overall: VERY GOOD.

      [Munich?] : Prometheus 1947 - Original Wrappers. 8vo. 90 pages. 21 cm. First Edition. In Ukrainian. Translated by Igor Shevchenko under the pseudonym John Chernyatynskyy. Includes a black and white portrait of George Orwell. In the introduction for this edition, Orwell explains his experiences during the Spanish Civil war and his connection to what he describes as “the negative impact of Soviet myth in Western socialist movement. € Shevchenko first read the book in English while living in a displaced persons camp. He chose to publish it under the title “Kolghosp Tvaryn” which directly referenced collectivized farms instead of choosing the more direct translation of “Ferma Tvaryn. € “Shevchenko wrote to Orwell in London, and, working with him by letter, published Animal Farm in Ukrainian. In March 1947, Shevchenko printed around 5, 000 copies to distribute among the Ukrainian refugees in the displaced persons camps of postwar Germany and Austria. But only 2, 000 books were given out; U. S. Soldiers, suspecting the books of being anti-Stalin propaganda, confiscated the rest and handed them over to Soviet authorities to be destroyed. € (Chalupa, “Orwell and the Refugees. €) Subjects: English fiction -- 20th century -- Translations into Ukrainian.

      Sans nom ni lieu di date ni rien. - Relié plein maroquin marron, plats décorés d'un encadrement de grappes de raisin et de feuilles de vigne, dos à nerfs, titre et tête dorés. Légères décharges sur gardes. Portrait de l'auteur en frontispice par Félix Vallotton. Scoop bibliophilique, cette probable publication clandestine semble ne figurer dans aucune des collections ni bibliographies importantes consacrées au poète.La justification de cette réimpression tente de résumer, de façon quelque peu confuse, l'historique de l'originale et celle de la deuxième édition, dite de Londres. Après de longues et patientes investigations, parmi deux exemplaires retrouvés, le plus grand numéro, composté en rouge, comportait le chiffre "269", ce qui équivaut en quelque sorte à un parfait symbole.Le portrait de Vallotton est référencé en tant que dessin dans l'ouvrage iconographique que François Ruchon consacra à l'auteur chez l'éditeur Cailler, préfigurant celui de l'Album Pléiade; ici tiré avec une cuvette, nous serions tenté d'y voir une estampe, un vernis mou par exemple à cause de l'apparence lithographique et du foulage. Mais c'est plus probablement de procédé voisin l'héliogravure qu'il s'agit.La couverture, assez quelconque, n'a pas été conservée, elle possédait peut-être juste l'avantage d'un fleuron central qui aurait été un vague indice d'investigation.(Verlaine, Documents iconographiques - P.Cailler, 1947.

First US edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To my sister Priscilla with devotion from her brother Malcolm." Former silent screen star Priscilla Bonner (1899–1996) was not Lowry's sister by birth, but the elder sister of Lowry's wife, Margerie, the dedicatee of the book and widely credited with shaping its final form. The book was published simultaneously in Britain and America: it "was poorly received in Britain and soon remaindered, but was hailed as a work of genius in North America, becoming a best-seller" (ODNB).

      Buenos Aires. July 1937 through November 1947. - Whole numbers 34 through 74, 95 through 128, and 141 through 158. Bound up in sixteen volumes, wrappers bound in, for James Laughlin. Occasional sunning or dust marking to bindings, occasional text blocks tanned, as usual, but very good or better. Edited by Victoria Ocampo, at various times in association with Jorge Luis Borges, Waldo Frank, Ortega y Gasset, Alfonso Reyes and others. Perhaps the most important Latin American periodical of its times. Eventually 371 numbers were published through 1992 (though many were multiple numbers in later years). Borges was a frequent contributor - as associate editor, as reviewer, and as contributor of original fiction (as well as H. Bustos Domecq); several of his major books appeared under the SUR imprint. Other contributors to SUR during the course of its life included L. Hughes, Huxley, Gropius, Michaux, Masters, Reyes, Heidegger, Maritain, Benda, Mistral, Gide, Breton, Eluard, Berdayev, Malraux, Jimenez, Steinbeck, Amado, G. Greene, J. Stafford, Eliot, Camus, Koestler, Shaw, et al. Significant attention was paid to contemporary writing and film, and to understanding movements, including Surrealism.
