        I WAS A TEENAGE WEREWOLF (1957)

      American International Pictures 1957 - Vintage original 41 x 27" (103 x 68 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Michael Landon, Yvonne Lime, Whit Bissell, dir: Gene Fowler, Jr. American International. When a troubled teenager goes to a psychotherapist for help, the doctor uses regression therapy which transforms the youth into a rampaging werewolf. Wonderfully clever take on the delinquent youth genre of the time, combined with the horror and science fiction aspect! It was made on a shoestring budget, made lots of money and made Michael Landon a star. Poster is on linen. There are some blank white margin, corner and fold line touch-ups. A bit of ink over-bleed above "Marshall" in the credit area at the bottom. NEAR FINE

      1957. Cloth. Collectible; Fine. The 1st Japanese edition (1957) of Norbert Wiener's pioneering work from 1948, "Cybernetics".

(Ikehara used Wiener's Tauberian theorem on prime numbers and OCLC locates only a single copy at MIT). It's inscribed to Yuk-Wing Lee, one of Wiener's most important early disciples who played a key role in explaining and disseminating Wiener's theories. A very sharp copy to boot of the book.

        COLLAGE IN AMERICA: December 18th thru [sic] January 4th, 1958 [Exhibition Poster]

      Zabriskie Gallery [1957], New York - 14" x 9.75" approx. posted printed recto only green on white. Folded twice, in quarters - likely as issued. A couple of clean tears at folds. Very good. Poster for the ground-breaking exhibition COLLAGE IN AMERICA, which included early work from Ray Johnson, Robert Rauschenberg, Allen Kaprow, and Jasper Johns -- only his third exhibition overall and predating his 1958 Castelli solo debut. COLLAGE featured what (according to Virginia Zabriski) ".may have been the first time Johns ever showed one of his flag pieces. I remember the price was $300 and nobody bought it, including me" (ZABRISKIE: Fifty Years p. 15). A prescient exhibition Zabriskie herself frequently mentioned as her favorite and one that helped distill many of the most important artistic developments of the coming 1960s: from Happenings and performance art (Kaprow & Beck) to mail art (Johnson) and pop (Johns & Rauschenberg). Other artists included in the show include: Arthur Dove, Alfred Leslie, Franz Kline, Vincent Longo, Lee Krasner, and Robert Motherwell, among many others. A striking promotional poster for a influential event. [See reproduction in ZABRISKIE: Fifty Years p. 87]. [Attributes: First Edition]

About Fine (dust-soiled top edge, spine tips lightly bumped); about Fine jacket (spine panel mildly toned). Fine- The quiet life of schoolmaster Bill Mor and his wife, Nan, is disturbed when a young woman, Rain Carter, arrives at the school to paint the headmaster's portrait. "Visual art was of great importance to Murdoch and is a dominant strand in the novels, as well as being an idiosyncratic element in her moral philosophy. (Murdoch sees the creation of, and attention to, good art as a moral issue.) She thought that she might have been an art historian or a painter had it not been for the war, and her novels frequently feature painters as major characters, as, for example, in The Sandcastle."

      1957. Langridge, Robert (1933- ); Seeds, W. E.; Wilson, H. R. (1929- ); Hooper, C. W.; Wilkins, Maurice (1916- ); and Hamilton, L. D. Molecular structure of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).

Slight wear along spine, otherwise a fine copy, signed by Wilson on the first page. First Separate Edition. Further studies on both the A and B configuration of the DNA molecule, the A configuration existing when relative humidity of the atmosphere surrounding a fiber consisting of a DNA salt is reduced from 90-85 percent to 75 percent, and the B configuration existing when the DNA molecule is bound to protein in cells. An IBM computer was used to process some of the data; Langridge, the lead author of this paper and Wilkins's doctoral student, was the first to apply a stored-program digital computer to the analysis of DNA structure (as recorded in Langridge's PhD. dissertation, published the same year as the present paper).
