Demystifying biology: did life begin as a complex system? Complexity (2005), 11, 30-35.nnn?Lauterbur was born on 6 May 1929 in Sidney, Ohio, and earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry in 1951 from the Case Institute of Technology, Cleveland, Ohio. From 1951 to 1963, with the exception of service in the US Army from 1954-55, he was a research associate at the Mellon Institute in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Lauterbur's 1962 PhD degree from the University of Pittsburgh was awarded for his independent NMR work at Mellon. In 1963, he joined the faculty of the State University of New York at Stony Brook. It was there that Lauterbur realised how nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signals could be used to make a new kind of image. The NMR technique, which was developed in the 1930s and 40s, consists of measuring the radio signals emitted by an object in a magnetic field. Lauterbur's breakthrough idea was to vary the strength of the magnetic field from place to place, so that different parts of the object emitted radio waves of different frequencies. In this way, positional information could be encoded in the radio signal, and images could be constructed mathematically from the returned signals. n?Lauterbur's concept, which came to him in 1971 while eating dinner at a fast food restaurant, was initially (and incorrectly) thought by some to contradict a well-established law of optics - Abbe's resolution limit - which states that the least distance between two points that can be resolved is one-half of the wavelength of the signal. Lauterbur's MRI technique circumvents this limit in a particularly clever way, and can resolve objects separated by distances less than one-thousandth the wavelength of the radio signal. His first manuscript describing the new technique was initially rejected by the journal Nature, a decision Lauterbur contested and the journal wisely reversed. n?Lauterbur quickly applied his MRI method to biological organisms - he first used clams and green peppers - and showed that different types of tissues could readily be distinguished. His subsequent papers established the foundations of many imaging techniques and applications now in clinical use. Today, over 60 million MRI scans are performed each year worldwide. Along with computed X-ray tomography (CT scanning), it is the most important medical diagnostic advance of the twentieth century. n?Although best known for his MRI work, Lauterbur made significant contributions to the development of (non-imaging) NMR spectroscopy. He published the first silicon NMR spectra and pioneering work on phosphorus, fluorine, and tin NMR spectroscopy. He recorded the very first carbon-13 NMR spectra and wrote a landmark series of papers on this spectroscopic method, which today is widely used in chemistry and biochemistry. More than anyone, Lauterbur proved that heteronuclear NMR spectroscopy was a powerful method for the investigation of matter, research that continued after his move to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1985.n?Lauterbur relished being a scientific maverick, and had indomitable curiosity and courage: in his seventies, despite a stroke that made walking difficult, he stopped working on MRI and devoted all his efforts to investigate how catalytic templating effects might have contributed to the chemical origin of life. He was witty and charming, forthright and modest in turn. He was a good colleague and a devoted family man, generously giving his time to help others. On the day he was informed of winning the Nobel prize, he insisted on keeping his regular afternoon appointment with his students. In addition to the Nobel prize, Lauterbur won numerous awards, including the US National Medal of Science, the US National Medal of Technology, and election to the US National Academy of Sciences and the US National Inventors Hall of Fame.? - Chemistry World, 2007, 4(5).n

        THIS ISLAND EARTH (1955)

      Universal 1955 - Vintage original 40 x 30" (100 x 75 cm.) poster, USA. Jeff Morrow, Faith Domergue, Rex Reason, Lance Fuller, Russell Johnson, dir: Joseph M. Newman, Jack Arnold: Universal. One of the top science fiction classics of the 1950s. Here is a very rare poster indeed. The story involved aliens coming to Earth to engage scientists in a scheme to wage war and destroy the planet. The film, made on a very modest Universal budget, was likely not really in the making for 2 ½ years, but the studio was dissatisfied with director Newman's work and hired Jack Arnold to reshoot a great portion of the film. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart supplied the music score. Poster is rolled. It displays a fair amount of creasing, at edges particularly at the top and bottom. There is inner creasing, more evident in the title box area. Tears at edges have been repaired with brown tape and there are a few small unrepaired edge tears. The top image portion with portrait of Domergue and Reason and the alien to the right is a pasteover and the foot area of the alien has lifted slightly. VERY GOOD.

        Violin. From au Soleil du Plafond. First edition.

      Paris: Tériade Editeur. 1955 - Color lithograph. 43 x 33 cm. One of 220 impressions printed by Mourlot. Ref: Douglas Cooper, Juan Gris, Catalogue Raisonné, Revised edition 2014, no. L.4. In 1915, the artist's dealer Léonce Rosenberg (1879-1947) came up with the idea of publishing a facsimile of manuscript poems by Pierre Reverdy (1889-1960) illustrated by Juan Gris. The projectnever took place during the artist's lifetime. Juan Gris died in 1927, having completed only about half of the images. As a result, only eleven lithographs accompany the twenty poems in the book. The bookwas published in 1955, almost forty years from the first efforts and 28 years after the artist's death. The publisher is known as Tériade (1897-1983). He was born in Lesbos, Greece as Efstratios Eleftheriades.He worked with his fellow Greek expatriate Christian Zervos in Paris on the art journal Cahiers d'art and began his own publishing company with the deluxe art journal Verve in 1937. Tériade published about 20 important livres d'artiste with original graphic works by the major Ecole de Paris artists.The lithographs relate to the artist's paintings from an important period (circa 1916) and are therefore included in this catalogue. They are not considered as original works by the artist since they were created after the artist's gouaches by the printer Fernand Mourlot (1895-1988). [Attributes: Soft Cover]
