        Sketches from Life of Men I Have Known

      New York: Harper & Brothers 1961 - 8vo., black boards and red cloth lettered in gilt; dust jacket. First edition, first printing. A presentation copy, inscribed: "With love to Lois and Phil, Dean Acheson," on the front endpaper. ---- The recipient, Philip C. Jessup, a judge on the International Court of Justice at The Hague and veteran U.S. diplomat, was credited with playing a major role in ending the Soviet blockade of West Berlin. Jessup was a representative to the United Nations General Assembly, as well as a U.S. ambassador at large from 1949 until his resignation in 1953. During that time, he was one of the closest advisers of then- Secretary of State Dean Acheson. After Jessup was maligned by Senator Joe McCarthy for purported communist "affinities," General Dwight D. Eisenhower heralded Jessup's "devotion to the principles of Americanism." McCarthy's charges kept Jessup from being reappointed to the U.S. delegation to the United Nations in 1951 but President Harry S. Truman made him an alternate delegate the following year. Acheson would later recall that Jessup's "wit, gay and ready, and his irrepressible humor would survive the longest and dullest meetings." Acheson mentioned Jessup several times in "Sketches." An important presentation copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Various. PAMPHLET.

An Analytical Approach to the Problems of Phage Recombination and Reproduction III. Cross Reactivation. Virology, v13 n4 (1961): 460-476 Holtfreter's copy with his ownership stamp. The theoretical implications of cross reactivation (CR) of genetic markers from ultraviolet (UV)-irradiated phages are investigated in this paper. In the analysis of CR, a theory (double-crossover theory) based on the assumption that marker rescue takes place by crossovers between the markers and the closest UV hits on both sides has been applied. The fit of this theory to the CR data for UV doses higher than 50 phage-lethal hits (PLH) is very good when high negative interference is taken into account. The parameters involved in the theory are: (1) the mean length L 0 At UV doses lower than 40 PLH, the theory does not fit the data well. The CR frequency is greater than predicted by the theory, and the clone size of cross-reactivated phages is many times greater than at higher doses. The difference cannot be accounted for simply by the increased CR frequency. CR of two closely linked markers has yielded a method of calculating the value of TU/MU between the two markers when g is known. The values vary between a minimum of about TU = 125 gMU (or 51 gSU, where SU = standard unit) (Barricelli, 1960) to a maximum of about TU = 500 gMU (or 208 gSU). These changes indicate a fluctuation of the crossover frequency per TU. All the TU/MU values have been obtained by using markers in the rIIA cistron. Outside this region one may expect to find larger TU/MU values ( Barricelli, 1960). CR of ?surrounded? markers?one r A theoretical model for the interpretation of CR is presented.

From JFKlibarary.org: ?Taken by Louis Fabian Bachrach in 1961, this formal portrait of John F. Kennedy is widely considered to be the definitive portrait of the President.? On July 14, 1961, Bachrach wrote Commander Tazewell T. Shepard, Naval Aide to the President, in part, ?I have had no news as yet from you about the colour print of President Kennedy which we delivered to you back in March. You will recall that this was the pose which was approved in black and white, and which was coloured by our artist in a smooth technique to look very much like a dye transfer print ... I noticed it was reproduced in colour in a Spanish magazine very recently ?" the Blanco y Negro, published in Madrid on June 3...? Photocopies of this letter and the magazine cover are present. The black & white JFK photo is one of 18 presidential portraits depicted on his letterhead.On July 20th, Cmdr. Shepard wrote Bachrach, ?The President intends to limit the use of his colored photographs, distributing them only to close friends and the highest officials of the government. He asked me to have as small number of prints made from your picture...? Photocopy of retained carbon is present. Hickman Price, Jr. (1911-1989) was JFK?s Assistant Secretary of Commerce from 1961 to 1963."

        The Sword of Honour Trilogy: Men at Arms; Officers and Gentlemen; and Unconditional Surrender

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1961. First editions. Fine/Near Fine. The first book, Fine in a very nearly Fine dust jacket, that is very slightly faded along the spine, otherwise Fine. Book two is Fine in a very nearly Fine, price-clipped dust jacket that has a small number stamped at the top of the rear panel and slight toning at the extremities. The third book also Fine in a very nearly Fine dust jacket with slight soiling on the rear panel. Praised as three of the finest World War II novels, the Sword of Honour trilogy follows Guy Crouchback, a British Roman Catholic who joins the fictional Royal Corps of Halberdiers. Based on Waugh's own observations in World War II, Crouchback serves as commentator for the ironic state of the British army and the bureaucracy of modern warfare. His character questions the place of romantic heroism in the modern world and ridicules the traditions of British society. Critic Edmund Wilson wrote that Waugh "is likely to figure as the only first-rate comic genius that has appeared in English since Bernard Shaw." Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.

        THE GAY PLACE. Being Three Related Novels THE FLEA CIRCUS, ROOM ENOUGH TO CAPER, COUNTRY PLEASURES.

      Boston:: Houghton Mifflin and Co.,. 1961.. First edition. The author's only book. An advance copy INSCRIBED by Brammer, "For Wm. Beckman -- Friend of famous Arthurs / Pen Pay of Genius Poets / Patron of the Pataphysician. From his boon companion Wm. (B. L.) Brammer 3/21/63 (4 a. m.)." One of the best political novels we've read. Brammer worked for LBJ and became a heavy user of drugs which eventually led to his death. Set in an unnamed state identical to Texas, each novella has a different protagonist: a member of the state legislature; the state's junior senator; and the governor's speechwriter. The governor himself, Arthur Fenstemaker, a master politician (said to have been based on Brammer's mentor Lyndon Johnson) serves as the dominant figure throughout. The book also includes characters based on Ladybird, and LBJ's brother Sam Houston Johnson. The book, which earned the author a Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship Award. has been widely acclaimed as one of the best American political novels ever written. Yellow printed wraps a bit soiled and a bit worn on edges but still very good. .

        The Holy Bible, conteining the Old Testament, and the New: Newly translated out of the originall tongues: and with the former translations diligently compared and revised by his Majesties speciall Commandement. Appointed to be Read in Churches.

      [colophon: Cleveland: World Publishers Folio. [737] ff.. 1961] A fine full-size facsimile on specially made "antique" paper from the Ventura Mill at Cernobbio, Italy, faithfully reproducing the black-letter text of the first edition, first issue (the "He" issue) of the King James Bible. => The edition was limited to 1500 copies, of which this is number 878. It was printed by offset lithography and bound in full leather by Amilcare Pizzi of Milan in a handsome replica of the type of binding found on some copies of this edition. Binding as above with leather abraded at edges, spine-tips, and bands; joints open and fragile; lacks the slipcase. Interior fresh, clean, and lovely. A compromised copy, but a handsome and interesting production not necessarily easy to find on the market; a large volume priced to permit its strengthening by a conservator should that be wished for.
