        Typographica (First Series) Issues 4-16 (1951-1959)

      Lund Humphries, London 1951 - A remarkably good set of the first series of this typographical journal subtitled 'A review of typography and the graphic arts.', missing only the first three volumes. Given that they are paper/card covered (all with fold backs) and were published in the 1950s, their condition is amazing. There is some spine fading to some issues and rubbing and/or nicking to some edges but in general they are bright, clean and tightly bound. Number 16 has a curious erosion to bottom front, which cannot be identified but still sound. A heavy and valuable set which will incur increased postage charges.

        Physical studies of nucleic acid. Offprint, Signed by Wilkins & Gosling.

      1951 - Crystalline Structure of DNA Wilkins, Maurice (1916- ); Gosling, Raymond; & Seeds, W. E. Physical studies of nucleic acid. Nucleic acid: An extensible molecule? Offprint from Nature 167 (May 12, 1951). 8vo. 7pp. Text illustrations. 213 x 140 mm. Original printed wrappers. Fine copy, signed by Gosling and Wilkins on the front wrapper. First Separate Edition. On 12 May 1950, at a meeting of the Faraday Society, Wilkins obtained from the Swiss scientist Rudolf Signer a sample of sodium thymonucleate, an improved DNA extract that preserved the long, fragile molecule's structure. While preparing part of this sample for study, Wilkins noticed that every time he touched the stuff with the tip of a glass rod and then drew the rod away, "I had spun a very thin fibre of DNA, almost invisible, like a filament of spider web." The fibres seemed so perfect and uniform that the molecules in them must have been neatly aligned alongside one another. Examined under a microscope, in polarized light, the fibres behaved as though they were made up of well-ordered crystals. (Judson, Eighth Day of Creation [1996], p. 78) Wilkins, who had no training in x-ray diffraction, took his DNA fibers to Raymond Gosling, a graduate student in physics at King's College who was then performing crystallography studies of ram's sperm using an antiquated x-ray apparatus in the basement of the college's chemistry department. Because the apparatus was not well suited to fiber work, several dozen of Wilkins's fibres had to be bundled together, in a tiny tungsten-wire frame where they could be tightened like a violin bow, to constitute a large enough specimen for the soft focus of the x-ray tube. Wilkins and Gosling remembered that Bernal, fifteen years before, had got the first good x-ray patterns from protein crystals by keeping them wet. Accordingly, they maintained the DNA fibres at high humidity. They got striking patterns, with many spots, sharp and detailed, far better than ever before seen from DNA, and for the first time unmistakably from a substance in crystalline form. (Judson, pp. 78-79)Thus began Wilkins's x-ray diffraction studies of DNA, which would gain for him a share of the 1962 Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine (the other two recipients of the 1962 prize were James Watson and Francis Crick). However, for several reasons-inadequate x-ray equipment being one of them-Wilkins put the DNA crystallography studies on hold for fifteen months, resuming them seriously only after the arrival at King's of Rosalind Franklin, a biologist highly skilled in x-ray diffraction techniques. However, Wilkins did publish "a couple of notes" (Judson, p. 79) on his researches in late 1950 and early 1951. The first, entitled "Ultra-violet microspectrographic studies of nucleoproteins and crystal of biological interest," was a preliminary notice that "went little further than the work of Torbjˆrn Caspersson ten years earlier" (Judson, p. 651); the second, which we are offering here in offprint form, gives the details of Wilkins and Gosling's initial investigations. Published with it is a paper by Mary and Robert Fraser entitled "Evidence on the structure of deoxyribonucleic acid from measurements with polarized infra-red radiation." Olby, The Path to the Double Helix, pp. 332-35 (including illustration taken from Wilkins & Gosling's paper). Magill, The Nobel Prize Winners: Physiology or Medicine, pp. 863-68.

        Spartacus [Signed]

      New York: Howard Fast, 1951. First Edition. In a 1951 pre-publication letter, Fast explained that when his publisher at Little, Brown and Company was forced to resign, the novel 'Spartacus' was thrown out with him. In the coming weeks he found "that no other firm would publish this or any other book written by me, and thereby I am forced to do what certain other authors have had to do at moments of crisis in America. I must either find a way to publish my own work, or give up writing." Given the political temper of the McCarthy era, Fast had a small number of copies bound, priced at $5.00, which he numbered, signed, and sold to subscribers in an effort to help finance the regular edition of his novel (price at $2.50). & & Easily Fast's most enduring work, a contribution Walter Rideout credited for showing "how an already established form, the traditional historical novel, may be used for radical ends" (p.275). Basis for Stanley Kubrick's Oscar-winning film (1960), with a screenplay written by Dalton Trumbo and starring Kirk Douglas and Laurence Olivier. RIDEOUT p.300. Pre-publication subscriber's edition, self-published by Fast and sold prior to the regular edition. Octavo (21cm); olive cloth (one of four variants, with no established priority), with titles stamed in gilt on spine; dustjacket; 364pp, [1].

Dustjacket is unclipped ($5.00), lightly edgeworn, with a few tears and attendant creasing to upper edge, light sunning and a few tiny splash marks to spine; Very Good+.

        The Official Record of a Court of Inquiry convened at Chicago, Illinois, January 13, 1879, by THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES upon the request of Major MARCUS A. RENO, 7th U.S Cavalry to investigate his conduct at the battle of the LITTLE BIG HORN, June 25-26, 1876 (INSCRIBED)

      W.A. Graham, Pacific Palisades, Calif. 1951 - Limited Edition of 125 copies, this being number 75, inscribed by the author (see bio below). ***ABOUT THE BOOK: "Among the accounts of white participants the most important book by far is [this one], published in 1951. Other than the contemporary newspaper accounts of these court proceedings in 1879, this is the first printing of the record. This record was not released from the War Department, Judge Advocate General's Office, to the National Archives until 1941. It was 1951 before Graham published this record in an edition limited to 125 copies" (Of which this book is one.) "No other work contains such a wealth of eye-witness accounts. All the surviving officers of the battle.testified as well as some of the enlisted men and civilians." (Quotes from Custeriana bibliography cited below.) ***ABOUT THE AUTHOR: William Alexander Graham (1875-1954) was a lawyer and served in the military with the JAG, and therefore was imminently qualified to undertake the research and write the introduction for this book. ***ABOUT THE INSCRIBEE: Dr. Gabriel Segall (1895-1963) was born in Libau, Latvia and was naturalized as a U.S. Citizen in 1929 in Los Angeles. He settled in LA and is mentioned, along with his wife and son, in the 1940 LA census, occupation Physician. Per some oral histories done by the University of California, Berkeley, Dr. Segall was a good friend of Albert Einstein, confirmed via documents in the Einstein Archives Online, including a telegram sent by the Segalls to Einstein on March 14, 1939 (day the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia). ***DESCRIPTION: Light brown cloth boards with gilt rules and lettering on the spine, plain endpapers, author's inscription on flyleaf, limitation statement on page preceding title page with a note about the printing of the book (appears as mimeograph), printed on recto only. Introductory chapter written by Col. Graham and the Appendix, followed by a separate title page for the transcripts, then an Index with a list of Exhibits and Errata, the transcript which runs through page 556, and the Exhibits which end at page 575 which include a battlefield map and end with General Sherman's action. ***CONDITION: Overall in fine condition, with a strong, square text block (unusual for such a large, heavy volume), solid hinges (we recently had the front hinge professionally repaired), clean interior free of all prior owner markings other than the inscription by the author referred to above. We are grading as near fine only due to very slight wear at the head and tail of the spine, some minor bumping to the corners, and a few very minor scratches to the rear board. ***CITATION: Swinford and Luther 45. ***POSTAGE: Please note that this is an extremely large and heavy book, the standard Abe shipping will not cover the cost and additional postage will apply for both domestic and international orders; we are happy to ship at cost. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Molecular Microwave Oscillator and New Hyperfine Structure in the Microwave Spectrum" + Van Hove, Léon. "Correlations in Space and Time and Born Approximation Scattering in Systems of Interacting Particles" in Physical Review 95, Number 1, July 1, 1954, pp. 282-284; pp.249-262

      - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PAPER WRAPS OF THE NOBEL PRIZE WINNING CONSTRUCTION OF THE FIRST AMPLIFICATION AND GENERATION OF ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES BY STIMULATED EMISSION -- THE FIRST AMMONIA MASER. Townes coined the word 'maser' for this device, an acronym for microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. The device they built "used stimulated emission in a stream of energized ammonia molecules to produce amplification of microwaves at a frequency of about 24.0 gighertz" (Wikipedia). "Einstein suggested 'that under the proper circumstances, atoms could release excess energy as light -- either spontaneously or when stimulated by light. In 1951, Charles H. Townes, then at Columbia University in New York City, thought of a way to generate stimulated emission at microwave frequencies. "In the 1930s scientists could have built a laser. They had the optical techniques and theoretical knowledge -- but nothing pushed these together. Charles Townes od Columbia University had studies molecules as a physicist in the 1930s, and during the war he had worked on radar as an electronics engineer. The Office of Naval Research pressed him and other physicists to put their heads together and invent a way to make powerful beams of radiation at ever shorter wavelengths. In 1951 he found a solution. Under the right conditions -- say, inside a resonating cavity like the ones used to generate radar waves --- the right kind of collection of molecules might generate radiation all on its own. He was applying an engineer's insights to a physicists's atomic systems. Townes gave the problem to Herbert Zeiger, a postdoctoral student, and James P. Gordon, a graduate student. By 1954 they had the device working [this paper being the detailed description of what they built]. Townes called it a MASER, for "Microwave Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation" (AIP, Laserfest). Townes was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for this work in 1964. ALSO INCLUDED is Van Hove's paper presenting a central quantity in the study of fluctuations, the density-density spacetime correlation that has come to be known as the Van Hove function.
