      New York: Harper & Row. (1964). First. Uncorrected galley proof.

The second and final of the Wapshot novels, which are similar in tone and format to Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha trilogy. The first book, The Wapshot Chronicle, won a National Book Award. Rare.

        Dialog-Buch für Fernseh-Film: "Die Geschichte von Joel Brand" von Heinar Kipphardt. Nr. 7256 (The Story of Joel Brand) [WITH 3 ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF MOVIE SCENES]

      Bavaria-Atelier-GmbH [1964], NP - Folio. [1], 79 leaves. Original blue leatherette folder with title label inserted on front cover. Original printed screenplay of the 1964 German television film "Die Geschichte von Joel Brand" (The Story of Joel Brand) telling the incredible story of a man who became known for his efforts during the Holocaust to save the Hungarian-Jewish community from deportation to the concentration camp at Auschwitz. Indeed, Joel Brand (1906-1964) is remembered for his negotiations with the German Schutzstaffel (SS) officer, Adolf Eichmann, to exchange one million Jews for trucks and other goods, a deal the Nazis proposed and called "Blut gegen Waren" ("blood for goods"). In the early 1940s, Brand was a member of the Hungarian Aid and Rescue Committee, an organization of Zionists who helped Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe escape to the relative safety of Hungary, before the German invasion of that country on 19 March 1944. Shortly after the invasion, Brand was summoned to a meeting with Eichmann, who had arrived in Budapest to oversee the deportation of the Jewish community. Eichmann asked Brand to help broker a deal between the SS and the United States or Britain, in which the Nazis would release up to one million Jews in exchange for 10,000 trucks for the Eastern front, and large quantities of soap, tea and coffee. Nothing came of the proposal, described by "The Times" as one of the most loathsome stories of the war. Historians believe the Germans intended it to serve as a cover for high-ranking Nazi officers, including Heinrich Himmler, to negotiate a peace deal with the Western Allies that would exclude the Soviet Union, and perhaps Adolf Hitler himself. Whatever its purpose, the proposal was thwarted by the Jewish Agency for Israel and a suspicious British government. The British arrested Brand in Turkey, where he had gone to inform them of Eichmann's offer, then leaked the story to the BBC, which broadcast it on 19 July 1944. The actions of the British government and the Jewish Agency - and the wider issue of why the Allies were unable to save the 435,000 Hungarian Jews deported to Auschwitz between May and July 1944 - have been the subject of bitter debate ever since. Hungarian Holocaust survivors have argued that the failure to act on Eichmann's offer was an unforgivable betrayal. Brand told a court in Jerusalem in 1953: "Rightly or wrongly, for better or for worse, I have cursed Jewry's official leaders ever since. All these things shall haunt me until my dying day. It is much more than a man can bear." He died in 1964 of liver disease brought on by alcoholism, reportedly a broken man. The TV movie was directed by Franz Peter Wirth, after a screenplay by Heinar Kipphardt. The leading roles of the cast were the following: Herwig Walter (Eichmann); Harry Kalenberg (Becker); Gerhard Jentsch (von Klages); Emil Stöhr (Joel Brand) and Doris Schade (Hansi Brand). Includes in plastic sleeve at rear, three original silver gelatin prints depicting three scenes from the movie. The actors featured are Herwig Walter (Eichmann), Emil Stöhr (Joel Brand) and Doris Schade (Hansi Brand). Each photograph measures 7 1/4 x 5", and has a tipped-in caption at verso. Text and captions in German. Folder and interior in overall very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Co-linearity of the gene with the polypeptide chain [first study to show co-linearity]

      1964. Sarabhai, A. S.; Stretton, A. O. W., Brenner, Sydney (1927- ); and Bolle, A. Co-linearity of the gene with the polypeptide chain. Offprint from Nature 201 (1964). [4]pp. Text illustrations. 280 x 218 mm. Without wrappers as issued. Light browning, minor creasing, small marginal tears, otherwise very good. First Separate Edition. Brenner and his colleagues performed the first study to show co-linearity; i.e., that there is a simple congruence between the amino acid sequence of a protein and the nucleotide sequence of the gene determining that protein. Brenner and his team were working with "nonsense" mutants, called amber mutants, that terminated protein synthesis in E. coli genes."The presence of random nonsense mutants would therefore yield multiple random protein fragments of different sizes. . . . [W]e now suddenly realized that since we had all these amber mutants in this gene we could give a topological proof of co-linearity. And we wouldn't have to do any protein sequencing! The only assumption we would have to make is that the protein is always read from the same end, which seemed a very reasonable one. So in 1964 we published a paper which proved that the gene and the protein were co-linear by an argument that was totally unexpected at that time. We showed that as the amber mutations moved further and further to the right in the position of the gene, we got progressively more and more of the protein made :(Brenner, My Life, p. 103). Co-linearity means that changes in DNA sequence can produce changes in protein sequence at corresponding positions. Working independently, Charles Yanofsky and his colleagues were also able to show co-linearity; "it was the Yanofsky work on tryptophan synthetase that was to provide the specifics of amino acid substitutions with gene mutations" (Brock, p. 312).

        Farnham's Freehold (Review Copy)

      Putnam, New York 1964 - Uncommon review copy with original letter from GP Putnam Publicity Director dated 8/21/64 extolling the book, and a seperate insert dated 9/23/64. Book would be fine except for a bump on the top of one board and slight softening to top spine tips. Very slight discoloring to inside FEP. Gold gilt bright and intact on spine and cover. Pages are clean and white and crisp, as is the binding. Dust jacket has light edgewear and a 3/4" closed tear to front top. A very nice copy of this book. Not price clipped, shows $4.95 on inside flap. Heinlein's grimmest book by far. Written near the heighth of the atomic war fear. Farnham builds a fallout shelter and when the alarms go off the family and a friend hide in the shelter, seal it, and feel a strange distortion and the solid concrete shelter slides DOWN. When they open the hatch, it's resting on a hillside thousands of years in the future. White people are all slaves or Aborigenes. Black people rule small underground kingdoms where hydroponics supply the only available food, they are intelligent, elegant, high tech, and cannibals. Farnham survives, finds romance, and even a sympathetic Ruler who sends him back in time with his mate rather then eat him. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [Manuscript]: The Blind Doe and Her Faun

      [1964]. Six drafts plus additional materials for an article that was written for and appeared in the May 5, 1964 issue of The Saturday Evening Post. The drafts are various formats (mostly typed) and lengths of pages, respectively 10, 15, 5, 11, 7, and 9 pages. Each of the drafts is edited and corrected, most of them fairly extensively. Apparently a true and autobiographical story, but with the names of the participants changed. While deer hunting the author encounters a blind doe and her fawn. He takes them in tow, and through his employer, the deer is shipped to a specially trained veterinarian for an eye operation. Accompanied by over 50 pages of typed "interrogatories," probably from an editor or fact checker in order to better understand the story, though possible by the author in order to understand his own process. The accompanying material includes two snapshots of the deer. Carousso was a public relations man for a brewery, and was a very prolific author in both non-fiction genres (especially sporting, hunting and fishing) and various genres of fiction including mysteries, horror, suspense, and outdoor adventure. His work appeared frequently in The Saturday Evening Post as well as in Sports Illustrated, Outdoor Life, Dime Detective, Terror Tales, Alfred Hitchcock, Reader's Digest, etc. Much of his work was anthologized. One of his stories, "The Weapon," was adapted for the screen by William Faulkner and Howard Hawks for their aborted WWII film, Battle Cry. .
