      TEMI, Trento. 1947 - Traduzione di Raffaella Lotteri. Presente il foglietto di p. 9 in cui Depero ironizza su alcuni errori di stampa: "If in Alaska or in Turkestan a book were printed in Italian, the eventual ortographical mistakes and misprints would be, no doubt, excused. So I apologize for the inevitable mistakes contained in this book printed in Trentino and within a very limited space. I was told that the words Heaven, Hell, Purgatory are not to be written with capital letters; I reserve to myself to correct as soon as I am back from one of these misteroius and so much spoken of places; only then (sic) I will be able to give my opinion on the question. Finally I authorize the reader to displace surplus capital letters and to put them were I out of my typographical taste have omitted them". In fine elenco delle edizioni di Depero. Le tavole, con riproduzioni di opere del pittore, sono stampate su carta patinata. Assolutamente non comune. Esemplare con autentica di Rosetta Depero. Formato: 174 p., [32] c. di tav. 28 cm, bross.

        Insect Natural History

      London - Collins, 1947. London - Collins, 1947 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of Insect Natural History by ImmsFirst EditionBound in green cloth with a clipped dustwrapperAugustus Daniel Imms (1880 - 1949) was an English educator, research institution administrator and entomologist. Imms studied science at Mason University College, Birmingham, and while his father wished him to become an industrial chemist, he took to biology. He studied under T. W. Bridge, then Professor of Zoology, and produced two scientific papers on fishes (1904, 1905). His contemporaries included B. Fantham, T. Goodey and R. H. Whitehouse. He graduated B. Sc. London with a second-class honours in zoology in 1903. After spending two years under Bridge at Birmingham, the award of an 1851 Exhibition Science Scholarship in 1905 helped him go to Cambridge where he joined Christ's College under A. E. Shipley. In 1911, Imms received an offer from the Government of India to become Forest Entomologist at Dehra Dun to succeed E. P. Stebbing. He studied lac cultivation in the Central Provinces and the pests of coniferous forests. He considered the six years in India as a better option that staying on in Cambridge and acquiring a myopic impression that Cambridge is the centre of the universe. In 1913 he left India for health reasons and accepted a post of reader in Agricultural Entomology under Professor S. J. Hickson at Manchester. In the years 1914-18, Imms was rejected by various recruiting boards. He wrote to Rothamsted Experimental Station to set up an entomology department and in 1918 it was established with him as chief entomologist. Condition: The binding is generally firm but pages 21-4 have detached. There appears to be very little wear to the extremities. The dustwrapper has been sealed to the boards in a protective plastic wrapper. There is some wear to the dustwrapper including some discolouration, a small chip and a small closed tear. Internally the pages are bright and clean with a small ink inscription to the front free end paper. There are a few marks to the end papers. Overall the condition of the book is very good with a very good dustwrapper..

        Photograph of the swearing-in of Secretary of State George C. Marshall signed on a detached lower matte by President Truman who has dated and inscribed it at the White House to Treasury Secretary John W. Snyder

      Washington, DC: , January 21, 1947 On a 7.5î x 2î matte, identical to the matte to which the photograph has been affixed, President Truman has boldly inscribed, signed, and dated: ìTo Hon. John W. Snyder with best wishes / Harry S Truman / The White House, 1/21/47î as President. On January 21, 1947, in the White House, Gen. George C. Marshall was sworn in as Trumanís Secretary of State by Chief Justice Fred Vinson. John W. Snyderís close friendship with Harry S. Truman began in 1928 when Truman was a County Judge. They served together in the U.S. Army Reserves after World War I. Harry S. Truman was Colonel of Field Artillery, United States Army Reserve Corps. Lieutenant Colonel John W. Snyder was in Harry Truman's Missouri Regiment, the 381st Field Artillery, 102nd Division. Snyder had a broad background in banking and business when he was appointed by President Truman as Federal Loan Administrator (1945), Director, Office of Mobilization and Reconversion (1945-1946), and Secretary of the Treasury (1946-1953). Of the 76 Secretaries of the Treasury, from Alexander Hamilton to Jack Lew, only six served longer than John W. Snyder. Photograph, 13.75î x 10.5î. Pictured from left: Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg, Admiral William D. Leahy, Rear Admiral James H. Foskett, General Harry H. Vaughan, Secretary of the Treasury John W. Snyder, Attorney General Tom C.

      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]

        Cranford

      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.
