      Bath - Cedric Chivers Ltd, 1966. Bath - Cedric Chivers Ltd, 1966 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Avery smartset of Camilla by English author Fanny Burney. A facsimile re-print of the original 1796 edition. Complete in five volumes. Frances Burney (13 June 1752 6 January 1840), also known as Fanny Burney was an English novelist, diarist and playwright. She wrote in total four novels, eight plays, one biography and twenty volumes of journals and letters. She gains critical respect in her own right, but also foreshadows such novelists of manners with a satirical bent as Jane Austen and Thackeray. She published her first novel, Evelina, anonymously in 1778. When the book's authorship was revealed, it brought her almost immediate fame due to its unique narrative and comic strengths. She followed with Cecilia in 1782, Camilla in 1796 and The Wanderer in 1814. All of Burneys novels explore the lives of English aristocrats, and satirise their social pretensions and personal foibles, with an eye to larger questions such as the politics of female identity. Throughout her career as a writer, her wit and talent for satirical caricatures were widely acknowledged: literary figures such as Dr Samuel Johnson, Edmund Burke, Hester Thrale and David Garrick were among her admirers. Her early novels were read and enjoyed by Jane Austen, whose own title Pride and Prejudice derives from the final pages of Cecilia. William Makepeace Thackeray is reported to have drawn on the first-person account of the Battle of Waterloo, recorded in her diaries, while writing Vanity Fair. Camilla, or a Picture of Youth, is a story of frustrated love and impoverishment. The first edition sold out;Burney made 1000 on the novel and sold the copyright for another 1000. Condition: In red cloth bindings with contrasting label to the spines, in unclipped dustwrappers. Externally, very smart, with just some minor shelfwear only. Dustwrappers are smart with just some minor edgewear and handling marks. Internally firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Overall: NEAR FINE inNEAR FINEdustwrappers..

        Big As Life (signed 1st printing)

      Simon & Schuster, New York 1966 - Simon & Schuster, 1966. New York. 218 pages. Stated First Printing. SIGNED by EL Doctorow directly to the title page. No inscription, signature only. Signed in person. Original 1st issue DJ with $4.95 price intact on the DJ flap. Red colored cloth and red topstain. By far Doctorow's most rare book. Doctorow fell out of favor with this book and has never allowed it to be published again. If you go to EL Doctorow's website, he does not even list this as one of the books he has written. Additionally, upon presenting this for signing, Mr. Doctorow commented on how this is his rarest book and overall quite rare. He noted that he would never grant rights to republish it. As for this copy, the book is nearly fine as it is tight, bright and unread. The only flaws holding this book back from grading fine is light wrinkling to the cloth on the upper front panel and a slightly discolored patch of cloth on upper front right. The DJ is in lesser condition despite maintaining the original bright hues. $4.95 price is intact on the DJ flap. This DJ has a 1 inch open chip to upper right front as seen in the photo. There are a couple of scuffs and rubbing along the edges. DJ verso shows some tape reinforcements. As a result, dropping DJ condition to Good Plus. A most rare book, even more rare Signed. Plenty of upside for the holder of a beautiful DJ to upgrade this already attractive SIGNED copy. Nearly N. Fine in a Good plus DJ. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Death of a Naturalist

      London: Faber and Faber, 1966. London: Faber and Faber, 1966 First edition. Publisher's green cloth, spine lettered in gilt; in the original dust jacket. A fine copy, with light wear to the extremities, bright and fresh interior; price-clipped dust jacket, with some light wear to the spine ends, toning to the lower half of the spine, partially affecting the front panel, a few hints of light soiling to the rear panel, otherwise clean. Overall, a bright and attractive copy of the author's first work published in book form. Brandes & Durkan A2a. Death of a Naturalist is a collection of thirty-four poems, including "Digging," "Death of a Naturalist," "Blackberry-Picking," and "Mid-Term Break," among others. Preceded only by the privately printed pamphlet Eleven Poems in 1965, Death of Naturalist, the author's first commercially published work, was received with critical acclaim. Hailed as the greatest Irish poet since Yeats, Heaney's poetry evokes imagery of the Irish countryside, where the poet grew up. The dust jacket affirms, "It is in particular the acute observation of the countryside and its people that gives his poetry its distinctive strength." Death of a Naturalist is concerned with the author's memories from his childhood, ranging from experiences with nature to the death of his four-year-old brother. Although Heaney would not win the Nobel Prize in Literature until 1995, Death of a Naturalist won the young poet notable awards, including the Somerset Maugham Award, the Cholmondeley Award, the Eric Gregory Award, and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

Light rubbing, fine in a near fine dust jacket with only the lightest of rubbing. A very sharp copy. The Magus was published by in the United Kingdom in 1966 and in the United States by Little, Brown and Company the same year.

Mr Fowles has taken a big swing at a difficult subject and his hits...are on the bull's eye'." The Magus was quickly adapted into film starring Michael Cain, a "…deliciously toothsome celebration of wanton story-telling... Before one quite realises what is happenings, one finds oneself no less avid for meanings and no less starving amid a plethora of clues than is Nicholas himself" (Sunday Times). The Magus was awarded inclusion in the Modern Library 100 Best Novels in 1999, and in 2003, the novel was listed at number 67 on the BBC's survey The Big Read.

        Optical filtering of electron micrographs + Reconstruction of three dimensional structures from electron micrographs

      1966-1968 1966 - Three-Dimensional Digital Image Processing Rosier, D. J. de and Klug, Aaron (1926- ). (1) Optical filtering of electron micrographs: Reconstruction of one-sided images. Offprint from Nature 212 (1966). 8, [1]pp. 212 x 141 mm. Without wrappers as issued. (2) Reconstruction of three dimensional structures from electron micrographs. Offprint from Nature 217 (1968). 4, [1]pp. 277 x 205 mm. Without wrappers as issued. Together 2 offprints. Light toning, otherwise fine. First Separate Editions. Klug and de Rosier invented methods for two-dimensional and three-dimensional digital image processing of electron microscope images. The latter method provided the theory behind the development of computed tomography (CT) by Hounsfield in the early 1970s. Hounsfield's invention of CT in the early 1970s benefited from several discussions with Klug about digital imaging (personal communication from Klug to J. Norman). Hounsfield received a share of the 1979 Nobel Prize in physiology/medicine for his invention of CT, which provided the first means for visualizing, in three dimensions, virtually all types of tissue within the body (see G-M 2700.4 and Grolier Medical Hundred 100). Klug received the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1982 "for his development of crystallographic electron microscopy and his structural elucidation of biologically important nucleic acid-protein complexes." A press release written at the time refers to Klug's two- and three-dimensional imaging methods as an important part of his work: Electron microscopy has long been used to obtain a two-dimensional picture of biological objects. The power of the method to give a clear picture of the structure is, however, limited by several factors. The molecules of life consist mainly of light atoms, which makes the picture lacking in contrast. Increased contrast can be achieved with long exposure times, but this entails the danger that the structure is destroyed by radiation damage. Instead the contrast is generally improved by "staining" with heavy metals, which can also lead to a distortion of the structure. Klug has shown that pictures of biological objects seemingly lacking in contrast often contain a large amount of structural information, which can be made available by a mathematical manipulation of the original picture. His method allows electron microscope pictures of high quality to be obtained with very low radiation doses and without the use of heavy metal stains. In this way changes in the sample are minimized, so that the electron microscope picture at high resolution is a true representation of the original biological structure. The method gives a two-dimensional projection of the sample only, but Klug has shown that a three-dimensional reconstruction of the object can be obtained by collecting pictures in several different directions of projection (Nobel e-museum). 38691 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Mostly in full colour; various sizes but mostly ca. 70 x 100 cm; scale mostly 1:100,000 (MI 3: 1:250,000; MI 6: 1:2,470 [b&w]; MI 7: ca. 1:1,600 [b&w with red overlays]; MI 8: 1:800 [b&w with red overlays]; MI 9: set of 2 maps [ca. 1:2,340 and 1:1,200] and 1 cross-section [all b&w, maps with red overlays]). All folded in original brown printed envelopes.. 14 maps of the 25-map series published between 1966 and 1971, including the complete set of the first 13 maps. Many photomaps based on aerial reconaissance and photomosaics, showing geological or geochemical information. Some sheets include location diagrams, text, notes, cross sections, charts, index map, and insets. The mapped resources also concern ancient gold mines. Among the credited cartographers are some Arabian scientists, but mainly Americans: James Mytton, Robert F. Johnson, Virgil A. Trent, C. W. Smith, J. Kouther, M. Q. Asad, Gerrit Eijkelboom, Mohammed Gendi, Bernard Henry, Xavier Leca, Mohammed Shanti, Phillippe Delange, and Jean Pflaum. Abdullah O. Ankary contributed to the text of several maps, and much of the geology is based on work done in the 1950s and early 1960s by Glen F. Brown, one of the pioneers of the partnership between the U.S. Geological Survey and the Saudi government which began in the 1940s, spanned the next five decades and played such an important role in the development of the kingdom.

        3 ms. Briefe mit eigenh. U.

      Locarno-Monti, 1966-1968.. Zusammen 3 SS. 4to.. An Gerhard Bormann, Oberstaatsanwalt i. R., den er u. a. um Rat in Fragen eines Fernsehspiels (wohl "Die Begnadigung", 1968) ersucht: "Wie Sie aus jener Zeitungsnotiz erfahren haben, handelt es sich grundsätzlich um den Fall Halsmann - doch hat Halsmann sich inzwischen nach mehreren Jahrzehnten zum erstenmal wieder an mich gewandt mit der verzweifelten Bitte, ihn gegen eine Identifikation mit dem Protagonisten unseres Fernsehspiels zu schützen, es würde sonst für ihn und seine jetzigen Lebensumstände katastrophale Folgen haben. Ich habe dementsprechend alles ihn persönlich Betreffende verfremdet - hinlänglich verfremdet, hoffe ich - bei voller Beibehaltung der Tatbestände - hoffend, daß es nur mehr ganz wenige Menschen gibt, die sich an diesen Fall tatsächlich erinnern. Außerdem habe ich [...] das 'Krimi-Element' nach Möglichkeit in den Hintergrund gerückt und die politischen Implikationen in den Vordergrund gezogen, da wir nicht einen Kriminalprozeß zeigen wollen [...]" (7. II. 1967). - Der jüdische Zahnarztsohn Philippe Halsmann war 1928 in zwei spektakulären Indizienprozessen des Mordes an seinen Vater schuldig gesprochen, zwei Jahre später allerdings begnadigt worden. Anschließend nach Paris ziehend und ein Photostudio eröffnend, wurde Halsmann als Prominentenphotograph in den USA (wohin er 1940 vor den Nationalsozialisten geflohen war) berühmt. Der deutsche Journalist Martin Pollack recherchierte knapp ein dreiviertel Jahrhundert später akribisch die verworrenen Umstände von Todesfall und Prozeß, mußte aber die Frage, ob Philippe Halsmann - der zeitlebens kein Wort über den Prozeß verlor - wirklich der Täter war, gleichfalls unbeantwortet lassen. - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. bzw. ms. Briefkopf.
