      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..
