All are in very good condition, with little rusted staples."Between 1948 and 1950, she developed a theory by which these mobile elements regulated the genes by inhibiting or modulating their action. 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."

        D'Arcy Ryan's annotated copy of 'Australian Totemism.' A Re-examination of the Problem, with Special Reference to Recent Field Work. Thesis for the degree of B-Litt.'.

      Oxford:. 1952.. Hardcover. Very good condition. The author's copy of the typewritten thesis of Australian anthropologist D'Arcy Ryan, for the degree of B. Litt. at Lincoln College, Oxford, on Australian totemism, with his pencil annotations. D'Arcy Ryan (1923 - 2014) was born in Bondi, educated in Sydney and Oxford and lectured for 25 years at the University of Western Australia, an expert on the Mendi people of the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. The author put his academic work at Oxford into perspective in his autobiographical essay in another work, "Ethnographic Presents: Pioneering Anthropologists in the Papua New Guinea Highlands", edited by Terence Hays: "In these days, when many postgraduate students are demanding that supervisors be a cross between a parent, confessor, and nanny, the casual style of Oxford supervision may seem incredible; indeed, in retrospect, it was. I was rash enough to remark on this at one stage, and received the reply (from E -P) [Evans- Pritchard]: "I'm afraid we don't indulge in spoon feeding Here!" I came to realize that this meant in practice an almost complete abdication from any sense of duty or responsibility to students, who were singularly blessed to be Here [Oxford] at all." (University of California Press, Berkeley, CA, 1992. p200). Contents in the thesis include: the Ecological and Social Setting of Totemism; the Religious Life of the Aborigines; theories of Totemism; Appendix I: Circumcision and Subincision; Appendix II: Psycho-analytical theories: Freud and Roheim. 8vo, [iv], 272pp, folding map, map. Quarter blue cloth and dark blue buckram boards, with title at spine in white on black, printed by a label maker. Libraries Australia ID 42956953.

        The Old Man and the Sea (with DUSTWRAPPER PRINTED ON TWO SIDES)

      Jonathan Cape 1952 - First UK edition, first printing 1952. Blue cloth with red design and lettering to front cloth and spine. Lower edge uncut. In unclipped dustwrapper with no reviews on inner rear flap. However, removing the dustwrapper reveals that a completely different design is printed on the reverse of the dustwrapper with reviews from various literary sources. Because of the creases in the dustwrapper it would appear that this "other" design was, at one point, the main cover with the coloured pictorial design as the reverse. I am stumped as to which is the original and why the two designs are printed back to back. Promotional copy? I have never seen this format on the first edition, first printing before (or any other edition for that matter.) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Real Algebraic Manifolds

      Princton University Press, Baltimore, MD 1952 - FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of one of Nash's most important papers. Nash "was bent on proving himself a pure mathematician. Even before completing his thesis on game theory, he turned his attention to the trendy topic of geometric objects called manifolds. Manifolds play a role in many physical problems, including cosmology. Right off the bat, he made what he called 'a nice discovery relating to manifolds and real algebraic varieties.' Hoping for an appointment at Princeton or another prestigious math department, he returned to Princeton for a post-doctoral year and devoted himself to working out the details of the difficult proof. "Many breakthroughs in mathematics come from seeing unsuspected connections between objects that appear intractable and ones that mathematicians have already got their arms around. Dismissing conventional wisdom, Nash argued that manifolds were closely related to a simpler class of objects called algebraic varieties. Loosely speaking, Nash asserted that for any manifold it was possible to find an algebraic variety one of whose parts corresponded in some essential way to the original object. To do this, he showed, one has to go to higher dimensions. "Nash's theorem was initially greeted with skepticism. Experts found the notion that every manifold could be described by a system of polynomial equations implausible. 'I didn't think he would get anywhere,' said his Princeton adviser. "Nash completed 'Real Algebraic Manifolds,' his favorite paper and the only one he concedes is nearly perfect, in the fall of 1951. Its significance was instantly recognized. 'Just to conceive the theorem was remarkable,' said Michael Artin, a mathematician at MIT. Artin and Barry Mazur, who was a student of Nash's at MIT, later used Nash's result to resolve a basic problem in dynamics, the estimation of periodic points. Artin and Mazur proved that any smooth map from a compact manifold to itself could be approximated by a smooth map such that the number of periodic points of period p grows at most exponentially with p. The proof relied on Nash's work by translating the dynamic problem into an algebraic one of counting solutions to polynomial equations." (Kuhn and Nasar, The Essential John Nash). IN: Annals of Mathematics, Vol. 56., No. 3, pp. 405-421. Baltimore, MD: Princeton University Press, 1952. Octavo, original printed wrappers. Toning to spine and some light toning to rear wrappers; a hint of edgewear. An extremely well-preserved copy of one of Nash's greatest work. RARE in original wrappers and without any institutional stamps. Note:: A custom box is available for this item for an additional $225.

        James Mason on the set of "Julius Caesar" (1952)

      N.p.: N.p., 1952. Vintage oversize double weight photograph of James Mason on location in Bronson Canyon, California, for the shooting of "Julius Caesar" in 1952. Shot, struck, and mounted by the film's still photographer, Bob Willoughby. SIGNED by Willoughby at the bottom right margin in black ink, with his rubber stamp on the verso (noting his address Los Angeles). Full provenance available. After studying with Saul Bass at the Kann Institute of Art in Los Angeles, Willoughby began working as a photographer for magazines such as "Life," "Look," and "Harper's Bazaar" in the late 1940s. It was while on assignment covering Judy Garland in a "A Star is Born" that Willoughby's ability to capture his subjects' spontaneity, humor, and vulnerability, resulting in images that were far different from more traditional film stills, came to Hollywood's attention and earned him his first "Life" magazine cover. Willoughby spent the next 20-plus years working as a set photographer for every major studio, documenting some of most important films of the era and creating intimate portraits of some of Hollywood's greatest celebrities. Technically and stylistically innovative, Willoughby built the first remote radio-controlled cameras used on film sets, pioneered the use of the "silent blimp" for 35mm cameras, and created brackets to mount his cameras directly over the movie cameras to capture the same images. Willoughby moved his family to County Cork, Ireland in 1972, working on only a handful of films through the late 1970s and early 1980s, though he would continue to photograph, exhibit, and publish books for the remainder of his life. The stills in this collection were given by Willoughby to friends in Kilbrittain, Ireland just prior to his move to Vence, France in 1989, where he would remain until his death in 2009. Perhaps more than any other photographer, Willoughby is responsible for creating the the look of mid-century celebrity and moviemaking in the popular imagination, with his images printed in magazines literally every week of his career. But beyond being prolific, Willoughby's legacy rests with his ability capture the essence of the actors he photographed, as well as the films with which those photographs were associated. As Sydney Pollack said in his introduction to Willoughby's autobiography, "Sometimes a filmmaker gets a look at a photograph taken on his own set and sees the 'soul' of his film in one still photograph. It's rare, but it happens. It happened to me in 1969, the first time I looked at the work of Bob Willoughby during the filming of "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" Willoughby's photographs are in the permanent collections of ten museums, including The National Portrait Galleries in Washington, DC and London, the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Tate Modern. In a custom museum-quality frame, archivally mounted, with UV glass. 16 x 17.25 inches. Near Fine.

        [Original Color Linocut British Double Crown Poster for:] MURDER IN THE CATHEDRAL

      London: The Westminster Press [for:] The Academy Cinema, 1952. Large folio (30 x 20"; 76 x 51 cm). Original color linoleum cut, with text. Slightly curled from having been rolled (but never folded), very light use at edges, with a couple of tiny nicks and minor edge tears, otherwise very good to near fine. One of the iconic British film posters of its decade, with the central image executed as an original multi-color linocut by the eminent German-born British poster artist, Peter Strausfeld, for George Hoellering's film adaptation of Eliot's play. Strausfeld "was born in Cologne in 1910 and his engagement with expressionism, in the late 1920s and throughout the 1930s, defined his art. His life-long love of the woodcut and the linocut began here and his cinema posters are a natural reflection of this interest. As a result of his political and cultural opposition to the Nazis, Peter came to Brighton at the start of the Second World War. During internment in 1940-41 on the Isle of Man at the Onchan Internment Camp, he met the Austrian film producer George Hoellering. In 1947 Hoellering established the Academy Cinema in London and Peter became its poster designer. He held this job until his death in 1980. The Academy Cinema became the most important independent cinema in this country for the premiere exhibition of what are now recognised as the classic works of post-war world cinema ... In 1950-1, Peter worked with Hoellering on the film version of 'Murder in the Cathedral' and, as a result, Peter won the prize for best art direction at the Venice Film Festival in 1951. He also worked as an illustrator for the Folio Society. Peter taught at Brighton College of Art and later Brighton Polytechnic in the Department of Graphics from 1959 to 1980" - University of Brighton, Graphic Arts Hall of Fame (online). This poster has been frequently reproduced in facsimile in later years; this original bears the determinative imprint of the Westminster Press, as well as the obvious qualitative features of the original linocut that are absent from the reproductions.
