Group of 22 offprints, mimeographs, etc. on molecular biology and bacterial genetics, together with 2 related papers by other authors. Various sizes. 1947-1968. Together in one volume, cloth, "Institut Pasteur" in gilt on the spine. Overall good to very good; see detailed condition descriptions below. From the library of G. G. and Elinor Meynell, authors of Theory and Practice in Experimental Biology (1970), with their address label on the front endpaper and ownership signatures on several of the offprints. First / First Separate Editions. Jacob, Monod and Lwoff, all colleagues at the Institut Pasteur, received the 1965 Nobel Prize in physiology / medicine for their discoveries concerning genetic control of enzyme and virus synthesis-discoveries that "opened up a new field of research that deserved to be called 'molecular biology'" (Magill, The Nobel Prize Winners: Physiology or Medicine, II, p. 921). Their work answered the fundamental question of how the hereditary information contained in DNA can be translated into the chemical processes that synthesize cellular proteins (this question had been posed most succinctly and explicitly in Francis Crick's theoretical paper "On protein synthesis" [1957], which laid the groundwork for over a decade's worth of research in this area). Brenner, another key figure in this field, worked with Jacob and Matthew Meselson on providing experimental evidence for messenger RNA; he was awarded a share of the 2002 Nobel Prize for his discoveries concerning genetic regulation of organ development and programmed cell death. The collection we are offering here focuses largely on the Nobel Prize-winning work done by the Institut Pasteur group-Lwoff, Jacob and Monod-in the 1950s and 1960s. The work can be divided into four sections: (1) lysogeny and bacterial conjugation (2) expression of the genetic material via messenger RNA (3) the regulation of the genetic activity of bacterial cells by operons (4) the organization of bacterial genetic material. In the following paragraphs we will attempt to highlight the more important papers in this remarkable collection; however, all the papers here touch upon these central questions of molecular biology. Lysogeny, defined as the hereditary ability to produce the bacteriophage virus, is a peculiar type of infection in which the phage becomes part of the genetic material of a bacterial cell; in this non-infective form (prophage) it can then be inherited by succeeding generations of cells, becoming virulent only when some environmental stimulus causes the bacterium to produce and release phage. "Lysogeny brought a model for the interrelation between a virus and a cell. And also a model for the possible mode of action of carcinogenic agents, which could disturb something in this balance" (Judson, p. 368). Lwoff studied this phenomenon intensively in the late 1940s and early 1950s, successfully demonstrating the genetic nature of lysogeny (which was disputed by several scientists, including Delbruck) and discovering how it is induced. In 1953 he published an important review of the subject ("Lysogeny," Bacteriological Review 17; see no. 2 below). Lysogeny was also studied by Jacob and Elie Wollman, whose paper, "Induction of phage development in lysogenic bacteria" (CSH Symposia on Quant. Biol. 18 [1953]; see no. 5 below) summarizes what had been learned about lysogeny as of that date. Lwoff's work on lysogeny inspired Jacob and Wollman to investigate the phenomenon of bacterial conjugation (the transfer of genetic information from a male donor bacterium to a female recipient, resulting in genetic recombination) to see if they could discover where in the bacterium's genetic material the prophage was located. In 1955, working with a highly recombinant strain of E. coli (K12) discovered by William Hayes, Jacob and Wollman performed what came to be known as their "coitus interruptus" experiment, in which they used a Waring blender to interrupt the mating bacteria at various stages of their conjugation. They found that the donor cell's genetic characteristics were not transferred all at once, but rather sequentially over time-a discovery of great importance. "Wollman and Jacob had stumbled upon a way to measure off the genes on [the] bacterial chromosome as directly and physically as a child squeezes toothpaste onto a brush or a carpenter unrolls a coiled steel tape measure. As they saw instantly, and reported in a note in mid-June 1955 in the weekly Comptes rendus of the Academie des Sciences ["Sur le mecanisme du transfert de materiel genetique au cours de la recombinaison chez E. coli K12"; see no. 6 below], they had the means to make a genetic map of biochemical characteristics expressed in units of time" (Judson, p. 385). In 1956 Wollman and Jacob published the first (albeit rudimentary) timed map of the K12 strain of E. coli in a paper published in France. This map was printed again in their English-language paper "Conjugation and genetic recombination in E. coli K-12" (CSH Symposia on Quant. Biol. 21 [1956]; see no. 8 below), which also contained the first publication of Thomas Anderson's famous electron micrograph of two conjugated bacteria. In 1958 Jacob delivered his paper "Transfer and expression of genetic information in E. coli K12" (see no. 9 below) at a symposium in Brussels; this paper, together with one given by Jacob's sometime colleague Arthur Pardee, "ranged over the whole matter of transfer of genes between bacteria and the regulation of their expression" (Judson, p. 400). Jacob and Wollman had originally represented the hereditary material in linear form, while stating that the genetic map could be formally represented as a circle. In 1963, at a Cold Spring Harbor conference, the researcher J. Cairns provided physical evidence that the E. coli chromosome was circular; at this same conference, Jacob, Brenner and co-author Francois Cuzin presented their paper "On the regulation of DNA replication in bacteria" (CSH Symposia on Quant. Biol. 28; see no. 16 below), containing their "replicon model of chromosome replication in bacteria, a model that almost required circularity of chromosomal and F factor DNA" (Brock, p. 103). Experimental proof of the existence of messenger RNA, the substance responsible for coding protein synthesis, was announced in Brenner, Jacob and Meselson's landmark paper, "An unstable intermediate carrying information from genes to ribosomes for protein synthesis" [Nature 190 (1961)]; see no. 1 below). The theoretical groundwork for messenger RNA had been laid in Crick's "On protein synthesis" (1957); demonstration of the substance's existence had been foreshadowed by Volkin and Astrachan's discovery of a high-turnover, unstable RNA distinct from the ribosomal and transfer varieties (1956), and by the famous "PaJaMo" experiment demonstrating the negative control mechanism of enzyme induction (1958). However, it was not until the spring of 1960 that these previous findings were combined by Brenner, Jacob and Francis Crick into a biological model setting forth the exact means of communication between gene and cytoplasm, while eliminating the various problems associated with earlier ribosome-based theories of gene expression. As Brock puts it, the ribosome was now seen as "simply a nonspecific translation machine, something like a computer whose behavior depended on what software it contained" (Brock, p. 306). Working with Matthew Meselson, who had developed experimental techniques for tagging and separating ribosomes, Brenner and Jacob performed the critical experiment described in their paper, which provided direct evidence for the existence of an unstable, rapidly turning over messenger RNA. The concept of the operon-a group of adjacent genes functioning as a unit under the control of another gene (the operator gene)-developed between 1958 and 1960 on the basis of work done by Monod and Jacob, who were investigating the repressor model of gene regulation. Jacob developed the idea that gene regulation was based on a repression system that operated like an on-off switch, and that "genetic units of a higher order existed . . . that contained several genes subject to unitary expression. . . . On the basis of these ideas and observations, Jacob and Monod developed the concept of two kinds of genes, structural, which coded for the synthesis of proteins, and regulatory, which did not" (Brock, p. 300). In October 1959 Jacob and Monod published the theoretical basis for the operon in "Genes de structure et genes de regulation dans la biosynthese des proteines" (C. r. Acad. Sci. 249; see no. 11 below). Their paper "establish[ed] the sharp distinction between the familiar genes that determined protein structures and the new class of genes that regulated. It even looked to them, then, as though the product of the regulatory gene were not a protein by RNA. But the fact to be underlined, they said, was that in every known case, when several structural genes had their expression controlled by the same regulatory gene-'that is to say, in all probability by a unique repressor'-the structural genes were grouped tightly together. . . . [T]he best fit to the evidence was that the group of genes had among them a single element: the operator, target of the repressor" (Judson, p. 410). The Jacob/Monod operon model of gene expression was further explored in their 1961 paper "On the regulation of gene activity (CSH Symposia on Quant. Biol. 26; see no. 14 below), which presented a more detailed examination of the mechanics of protein synthesis.

Original wrappers or without wrappers as issued; see below for detailed condition statements. From the library of Nobel Laureate Emilio Segre(1905-89); Seaborg's presentation inscriptions to Segre on nos. 7, 9 and 11. First / First Separate Editions. Seaborg shared the 1951 Nobel Prize in chemistry with E. M. Macmillan for their work on the synthetic transuranium elements, which are created by bombarding uranium and other heavy elements with atomic particles. The first such element that Seaborg identified was plutonium (no. 94), which he and his associates J. W. Kennedy and A. C. Wahl found in December 1940; a few months later, with the assistance of Emilio Segre, Seaborg's team isolated the isotope 239Pu and found it to be a potential source of nuclear energy (see no. 10). This discovery was kept secret due to wartime conditions; Seaborg later stated that "the announcement to the world of the existence of plutonium was in the form of the nuclear bomb dropped over Nagasaki" (quoted in James, p. 346). Seaborg spent most of his scientific career at the University of California, Berkeley, where he obtained his Ph.D. in 1937 and joined the chemistry faculty the same year. In 1936, while still a graduate student, he became the first chemist to have an ongoing connection with E.O. Lawrence's Radiation Laboratory-home of the cyclotron, the world's first particle accelerator. It was at this time that Seaborg began working with John J. Livingood (see nos. 1, 3 & 5); "their ongoing collaboration . . . produced the largest quantity of information about nuclear reactions obtained by any group in the Laboratory" (Heilbron & Seidel, Lawrence and his Laboratory, p. 355). With Livingood, and later with Segre, J. W. Kennedy and others, Seaborg helped to pioneer the study of isomers, forms of the same unstable nucleus differing in internal energy (nos. 3, 5 & 6). With Livingood and Kennedy, Seaborg undertook a lengthy study of the isomers of activated tellurium (nos. 3 & 5), which was found to be a source of biologically useful radioactive iodine. With Segre, who joined the Rad. Lab. in 1938, Seaborg found the isomers of element 43 (no. 4); this element, later named technetium, had been discovered by Segre in 1936. This early work is discussed in detail in our two volumes of Seaborg's journal (no. 11), which describe his scientific work from August 1934 to April 1942. The years 1940 to 1942 are also covered in no. 10, which focuses primarily on Seaborg's work on plutonium and the isotope U233. During World War II Seaborg served as a section head in the Manhattan Project, supervising the production of plutonium for the atomic bomb. In 1944 he resumed his search for new transuranic elements, identifying americium (no. 95) and curium (no. 96). After the war he returned to Berkeley, where between 1949 and 1958 he and his research teams identified berkelium (no. 97), californium (no. 98), einsteinium (no. 99), fermium (no. 100), mendelevium (no. 101), and nobelium (no. 102)-this brought Seaborg's total of new elements up to nine, more than found by anyone else in history. In 1961, after serving for three years as chancellor of UC Berkeley, Seaborg was appointed chairman of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, where he served until 1971. In 1974 he isolated seaborgium (no. 106), which was named for him. Seaborg was a prolific author, producing 26 books and over 550 papers during his long career. We are offering here a selection of these, ranging from the 1930s to the 1980s. All are from the library of Seaborg's sometime collaborator Emilio Segre, who received half of the 1959 Nobel Prize for physics for his discovery of the antiproton. Both Seaborg and Segre were on the faculty of the University of California at Berkeley and both did much of their research at the university's Radiation Laboratory.

        "The Basketball Diaries" [story in] The World -- Number 11, April 1968

      New York: The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church In-The-Bowery. 1968. Magazine. Cover by Tom Clark. Folio. 42pp. Mimeographed stapled wrappers with printed rectos only. Near fine with some uneven toning to the front wrap and a spot of toning on the rear wrap but with no oxidation to the staples and fresh white pages. Signed by contributors Ron Padgett and Gerald Malanga. This issue features "From the Basketball Diaries," a two entry prose piece from Jim Carroll that would later be incorporated into his 1978 classic memoir The Basketball Diaries. Published when Carroll was just 17, these two entries dated Feb. 4 1965 ("We just got into town for the very spectacular National High School All Star Basketball Game.") and Feb. 5, 1965 ("After very poor breakfast Joe Slapstick calls aside Corky and I and lets us know he is giving us another chance and would be starting the game anyway.") were later incorporated into the book as Winter 66 (pages 153-155). These initial installments appeared a decade before the book which has since become a cult classic and the inspiration for the 1995 film of the same name starring Leonardo DiCaprio. .

        In Die Festo Natalis, Et Circuncisionis Christi, Sapphicum Alphabeticum

      Officina Bodoni (Milan): Officina Bodoni, 1968. Oblong 12mo. (14)ff. From an edition of 80 copies, this is one of forty printed for André Jammes, the French antiquarian bookseller. With a New Year's greeting inscribed on the first free endpaper from Jammes and his family. A beautifully-printed Christmas alphabet book with red calligraphic initials on each page. These elaborate initials were derived from a 1523 writing book by Ludovico Vicentino Degli Arrighi, an influential Italian bookseller, papal scribe, and later, typographer. Vicentino admired italic script and wrote an entire work about it; fittingly, this book is set entirely in Arrighi-Vicenza italic. The text is derived from a Christmas hymn and is represented in the original Latin. Extremely fine in paper-covered boards that look like vellum, in original brown card slipcase.
