Offsetting, probably from a clipping on the half-title else very near fine in near fine, slightly spine-toned dustwrapper. Sondheim's first Broadway musical, a breathtaking update of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to contemporary New York street-gangs. Rarely have concept, setting, score, libretto and choreography come together so brilliantly on stage. That the achievement could further be translated so successfully to film, winning ten Academy Awards, is without precedent. It is also the only film for which two directors received Oscars (Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise). The English edition is extremely uncommon. .

        Hoping for a Hoopoe

      London: Victor Gollancz. 1959. First. First English edition of the author's first book, published in America as The Carpentered Hen and Other Tame Creatures. Fine in fine dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author to Herb Yellin: "for Herb Yellin, a real gem. John U." Herb Yellin was the founder and publisher of Lord John Press and the most frequent of Updike's fine press collaborators. He named his press after noting that the list of authors he wanted to publish all shared the same first name, chief among them John Updike, his favorite. Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu became the press's first book in 1977 with 10 more to follow over the next 23 years. Yellin's friendship with Updike grew with each new limited edition benefitting his already enormous Updike collection, with Updike himself contributing copies of new editions of his books - often inscribed. In a 2010 interview with Yellin he noted that Updike "...liked that if anything ever happened to his own collection, he had my collection on the opposite side of the country." A notable association. .

        Fertilization of rabbit ova in vitro" in Nature 184, 1959, pp. 466-467

      HANDSOMELY BOUND FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST REPORT OF IN-VITRO FERTILIZATION OF AN ANIMAL. The definitive solution of the problem of in vitro fertilization of the mammalian egg and the first report of a in-vitro fertiliation in an animal was provided by the Chinese-American reproductive biologist Min Chueh Chang in 1959. Though he didn't fully understand it, Chang proves here that "oocytes fertilized in vitro were capable of developing and producing live normal young if transferred into the uterus" (Alberda, Pioneers in in vitro fertilization, 29). "For his experiment, Chang took sperm from male rabbits with specific traits not present in the female ovum donor." The presence of the male traits in the offspring provided unequivocal proof that the sperm had transmitted genetic information to the young" (Making Babies: Biomedical Technologies, 59). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Macmillan and Co. Complete Volume 184. 4to. 10.5 by 7.5 inches (263 x 188mm). [4], clxxv, [482], 6. In-text illustrations throughout. Volume 184 has no library markings; Handsomely rebound in half-calf, gilt-lettered at the spine; tightly and very solidly bound.
