        The Evolution of the Universe

      London: Macmillan & Co. First Edition. Fine. FIRST EDITION IN RARE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of one of Gamow's foundational papers on the Big Bang and the origin of the universe, leading to determinations of the age and temperature of the universe. "In his article in Nature on 'The Evolution of the Universe,' George Gamow presented... a visionary picture of the redshift in the spectra of distant galaxies, on the one hand, and the idea that the relative abundances of various atomic species constitute 'the most ancient archaeological document pertaining to the history of the universe' (Gamow, 1948, p. 680). From more detailed calculations of his student Ralph Alpher, Gamow drew some sharp consequences, such as: The building-up processes of the chemical elements must have occurred in the first thirty minutes where the temperature of the hot initial state had dropped to about 10^9 K and 'the expansion of the universe was governed entirely by radiation and not yet matter' (Gamow, loc. cit., p. 681). By evaluating further the time-dependence of the radiation density and the matter density, respectively, he argued that the formation of galaxies began once the densities had become equal. Alpher and Robert Herman then improved upon some of the sloppy errors in Gamow's theory and obtained an age of 10^7 years for the Universe at that moment; i.e., 'the temperature of the gas at the time of the condensation was 600 K, and the temperature in the universe at the present time is found to be about 5 K' (Alpher and Herman, 1948, p. 775)" " (Mehra, The Historical Development of Quantum Theory). IN: Nature, Vol 162, No. 4122, October 30, 1948, pp. 680-682. London: Macmillan & Co., 1948. Octavo, original wrappers; custom box. A few light pencil notations to wrappers. A fine copy, very rare in original wrappers.

She referred to Dissociator and Activator as "controlling units"?later, as "controlling elements"?to distinguish them from genes. She hypothesized that gene regulation could explain how complex multicellular organisms made of cells with identical genomes have cells of different function.[47] McClintock's discovery challenged the concept of the genome as a static set of instructions passed between generations.[2] In 1950, she reported her work on Ac/Ds and her ideas about gene regulation in a paper entitled "The origin and behavior of mutable loci in maize" published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In summer 1951, when she reported her work on the origin and behavior of mutable loci in maize at the annual symposium at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, presenting a paper of the same name. The paper delved into the instability caused by Dc and As or just As in four genes, along with the tendency of those genes to unpredictably revert to the wild phenotype. She also identified "families" of transposons, which did not interact with one another.[2][48][44] Her work on controlling elements and gene regulation was conceptually difficult and was not immediately understood or accepted by her contemporaries; she described the reception of her research as "puzzlement, even hostility".[49][44] Nevertheless, McClintock continued to develop her ideas on controlling elements. She published a paper in Genetics in 1953, where she presented all her statistical data, and undertook lecture tours to universities throughout the 1950s to speak about her work.[50] She continued to investigate the problem and identified a new element that she called Suppressor-mutator (Spm), which, although similar to Ac/Ds, acts in a more complex manner. Like Ac/Ds, some versions could transpose on their own and some could not; unlike Ac/Ds, when present, it fully suppressed the expression of mutant genes when they normally would not be entirely suppressed.[51] Based on the reactions of other scientists to her work, McClintock felt she risked alienating the scientific mainstream, and from 1953 stopped publishing accounts of her research on controlling elements." "The importance of McClintock's contributions was revealed in the 1960s, when the work of French geneticists Francois Jacob and Jacques Monod described the genetic regulation of the lac operon, a concept she had demonstrated with Ac/Ds in 1951."

Bit of flaking to front cover lettering. Very Good. Photographs clear & sharp. VG+ to Nr Fine.. 32 leaves of black mounting paper, with 72 mounted b/w captioned [text in English & Spanish] photographs [71: 4-11/16" x 6-7/8"; 1: 9-3/4" x 7-3/4"]. 4 additional b/w "snapshots" laid-in, as are a number of Ecuadorian newspaper clippings & an Esso road map of Puerto Rico. The final leaf title "Autographs", with autographs of 6 military personnel. Album: 11" x 14" This photograph album presented as a souvenir from the U.S. Army's 504th Field Army Battlion in Puerto Rico to the visiting officers of the Ecuadorian Army, who were there in late June / early July of 1948. The photographs depict the field training received by those Ecuadorian officers, who were instructed in the use & operation of 105mm howitzer artillery. Also documented is the social interaction of the two groups, including ceremonies, luncheons, visits to historical sites, and even a tour of the Don Q Rum factory. While the exact impetus for this training visit is not detailed in the souvenir album, one can speculate that Ecuador's 1941 border dispute with Peru may have played some role in occassioning this training at the hands of the 504th.

Not only as to the planned congress - in my opinion it is essential that young people be brought into all of our institutions, and not to draw votes in the elections, but in order to revive the movement. There is great value in the experience of senior members - but there is also danger in accumulated experience, as a force that preserves and freezes in place, if it is not tied to a soaring vision, an ability to discern the future and initiative. These characteristics are generally found among younger people, and there is a need for a living movement that will merge the life experience of the older people with the revitalized spirit of the younger ones.""I do not know whether it is yet time to nominate candidates and whether I will have any opportunity at all to deal with the matter, but I absolutely support the opinion you expressed in your letter. Friendly wishes, D Ben-Gurion.""Present is the original envelope from Ben-Gurion who was serving as Minister of Defense and Prime Minister, 6"" x 5"", opened at back flap, blank upper right missing.

A detailed and thoroughly annotated scrapbook of rare, professional Sumo wrestling images and information, detailing the heights, weights, accomplishments, and rankings of the athletes pictured within - with occasional commentary from the anonymous compiler.

Notable named figures shown include: Futabayama Sadaji (1912-1968). 17 images.Tamanishiki San'emon (1903-1938). 5 images.Hitachiyama Taniemon (1874-1922). 6 images.Akinoumi Setsuo (1914-1979). 18 images.Terukuni Manzo (1919-1977). 9 images.Umegatani Totaro II (1878-1927). 4 images.Tachiyama Mineemon (1877-1941). 3 images.Natsu Tunenohana. 2 images.Nishinoumi Kajiro II (1880-1931). 1 image.Azumafuji Kin'ichi (1921-1973). 1 image.Maedayama Eigoro (1914-1971). 1 image.Onishiki Uichiro (1891-1941). 1 image.Musashiyama Takeshi (1909-1969). 2 images.Haguroyama Masaji (1914-1969). 5 images.. A stirring collection, carefully curated and prepared, possibly by an American soldier in occupied Japan, though possibly compiled earlier by a Japanese collector and later annotated, as manuscript notes appear in different hands, in both English letters and Japanese characters. .

        Jeanne d'Arc.

      Amsterdam, G.A. van Oorschot, (1948). Ingenaaid. 56 p. 1e druk. Omslag licht beschadigd.* Uit de bibliotheek van Gerard Kornelis van het Reve, die begin 1949 op de Franse titel met potlood allerlei vermenigvuldigingen en staartdelingen uitvoerde. Vermoedelijk rekende Reve met behulp van deze uitgave uit hoeveel woorden hij nodig had voor de in dezelfde reeks te verschijnen novelle Werther Nieland. Berekeningen als '9,5 woord per regel/ 36 regels per pagina/ 58 pagina's tekst' en 'geschreven: 14 woord per regel/ 50 regels per bladz' leidden uiteindelijk tot de conclusie 'Ik moet dus leveren [...]'.Mooie illustratie van de moeizame totstandkoming van Reve's novelle, die in druk 70 pagina's zou omvatten. Dit vroege document zou niet misstaan in een vitrine van het Gerard Revemuseum in de OBA. In De Vrije Bladen: jaargang 19, schrift 10.Bijgevoegd: REVE, Gerard Werther Nieland. Amsterdam, Van Oorschot, 1949. Ingenaaid. 72 p. 1e druk. Rug minimaal verbruind.* De Vrije Bladen, jaargang 21, schrift 3.
