        [Photo Album]: British Soldiers in Korea and Environs

      Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malta, Aden. 1953. Large oblong octavo. String-tied red leather-grained cloth over boards. 84 gelatin silver snapshot images (and one commercial image) mounted from one to six to a page, rectos only, mostly captioned. Each page with glassine tissue guard. Images range mostly between 2" x 2.5" and 3" x 4.5". The photos are mostly fine, modest wear to the binding, but sound and very good. The captioned images indicate a sea voyage that commences on H.M.S. Dilward in March, 1953, through the Suez Canal. Arriving in Korea at "Area 3," about 22 images follow showing British soldiers in camp, with the dining tent, preparing tea, the parade ground, a batman at work, three of weapons cleaning by both British or Korean Troops, a couple of group portraits of 1st Platoon, A Company (laid in is a sheet of paper where someone has made a contemporary list of the names of the soldiers in the Platoon), along with shirtless and identified images of a few soldiers, the Korean Cook, a Korean named "Scochie," referred to as "A Katcom," and the R.M. Band as they leave Kure on H.M.T. Asturias in August, 1953 (shortly after the ceasefire on July 27th). The journey continues to Hong Kong (with a partially obscured image of a "Drunken Ex-POW" being restrained on a gangplank; the next stop is Singapore with images of the city (and four of the Raffles Hotel); the rest are uncaptioned and seem to indicate a journey back to the Middle East with shipboard images, beach scenes, and three of a boxing match. A pleasing albeit brief representation of the British experience in the last few months of the Korean Conflict, and in our experience not often seen. .

        Molecular structure of nucleic acids A structure for deoxyribose nucleic acid

      1953. The Double Helix The ?Three-Paper? Offprint, Signed by Five of its Authors Watson, James D. (1928- ) & Crick, Francis H. C. (1916-2004). Molecular structure of nucleic acids. A structure for deoxyribose nucleic acid. With: Wilkins, Maurice (1916-2004); Stokes, A. R.; & Wilson, H. R. Molecular structure of deoxypentose nucleic acids. With: Franklin, Rosalind (1920-58) and Gosling, R. G. Molecular configuration in sodium thymonucleate. Together three papers in a single offprint from Nature 171, no. 4356 (April 25, 1953). 8vo. 13, [1]pp. 211 x 141 mm. Without wrappers as issued. Signed by Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins on the first page, by H. R. Wilson and A. R. Stokes on p. 9, and by R. G. Gosling on the last page. Very good condition. First Editions. Watson and Crick?s discovery of the double-helical structure of DNA is the most important medical and biological discovery of the twentieth century. Their paper first appeared in the scientific journal Nature, grouped, under the general title ?The molecular structure of nucleic acids,? with two other seminal papers on DNA: ?Molecular structure of deoxypentose nucleic acids,? by Maurice Wilkins, A. R. Stokes and H. R. Wilson; and Rosalind Franklin and Raymond Gosling?s ?Molecular configuration in sodium thymonucleate,? which contains Franklin?s famous x-ray photograph of DNA. The journal publication of the three papers was followed by this ?three-paper?offprint for distribution by the various authors. In 1962, Watson, Crick and Wilkins shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Because Franklin had died in 1958 she could not share in the Nobel Prize. As much as the general educated public appreciates the discovery of the double helix today, when the papers were published in 1953 they were only understood and appreciated by the few workers in the field. Thus, Rosalind Franklin was never asked to sign a copy of this offprint, and none exist with her signature. This copy is signed by all participants except Franklin and Watson. Grolier, 100 Books Famous in Medicine, 99. Judson, Eighth Day of Creation, pp. 145-56. Dibner, Heralds of Science, 200.

        Correspondance autographe avec Mm. Erramouspé . 1948-1953.

      (Biarritz), 1943-1953 - 19 enveloppes peintes et environ 30 lettres, dont 10 sont illustrées.Les enveloppes sont un témoignage unique d’enveloppes peintes dans le style basque des années 20, années où la notoriété du dessinateur était la plus grande.La correspondance est amicale (sinon amoureuse), mais fournit de précieuses informations sur l’intimité de l’artiste, son parcours artistique, historique et le contexte dans lequel il vécut en France durant les années 1948-53. Edouard Fiol E Marquès (1903-1976) est né à Begur. Il étudie le dessin et la peinture à Gérone et participe aux journaux humoristiques et satiriques de l’époque. Publiciste, décorateur et affichiste, il "fut une figure proéminente dans le monde des publications et des graphiques satirico-humoristiques catalans du premier tiers du XXè siècle" (documentation en ligne). Exilé en France lors de l’entrée des troupes de Franco (1939), après un passage à Perpignan et Oléron, il obtient le statut de réfugié politique, permis qu’il doit renouveler tous les 3 ans, ce qui est à l’origine de sa correspondance avec l’assistante sociale Cécil Erramouspé. Il décède à Biarritz en 1976 après y avoir exercé ses talents d’architecte, décorateur et publiciste.

      New York: Viking Press, 1953. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author, "For Raymita Chaffee with best wishes Saul Bellow Breadloaf VT, 1954." The recipient was a student of Bellow?'s at Breadloaf. Fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket with a closed tear to the crown and a light brown spot to the top right side of the front panel. Contemporary inscriptions are uncommon in this, his third novel and first National Book Award winner. The Adventures of Augie March comes on stage with one of literature's most famous opening lines. "I am an American, Chicago born, and go at things as I have taught myself, free-style, and will make the record in my own way: first to knock, first admitted." Bellow quickly found a receptive audience for his new energetic style. The critic Irving Howe took note of Bellow's "free style" manner, calling it "the first major new style in American prose fiction since those of Hemingway and Faulkner." This novel went on to win the National Book Award for 1954 and was listed on Modern Library's 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century.

        The Battle For Investment Survival.

      New York: Hurry House Publishers, 1953. Second edition. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Signed by Gerald Loeb on the front free endpaper. The second edition was expanded by 18 chapters and is the preferred edition. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare signed. In The Battle for Investment Survival, the goal is to preserve your capital at all costs, and to win is to "make a killing without being killed." Originally written in 1935, The Battle for Investment Survival treats investors to a straightforward account of how to profit--and how to avoid profit loss--in what Loeb would describe as the constant tug-of-war between rising and falling markets. "Most of today's advisors are telling us to diversify into stocks, bonds, foreign stocks, and perhaps gold, to spread the risk; Loeb tells us to put all our eggs in one basket, and watch the basket" (John Rothchild).
