        COLD GRADATIONS [INSCRIBED COPY]

      SIGNED and INSCRIBED by the author in very small, neat blue fountain pen ink on the title page: 'To Janet and Stuart Clarke with every good wish. Stanley Middleton.' ***First impression of the true first edition. ***Near fine in brown cloth-covered boards with gilt titles to spine. Grey front and rear endpapers. No inscriptions (other than the author's). Very slight small bump to tail of spine. Tiny hint of a bump to lower outer corner of front board and tiny light bump to top outer corner of rear board. A tiny very light and unobtrusive splash mark to bottom edge of text-block not affecting interior pages. Slight off-setting to endpapers. Pages clean and bright. Very slight foxing to 1mm edge of fore edge of rear endpaper and the merest hint of foxing to less than 1mm edge of last text page, not affecting the interior of those pages at all. Spine tight. Gilt titles bright. ***In a very good colour illustrated dustwrapper which has not been price-clipped, showing original publisher's price of £1.95 net. Dustwrapper has a short 2cm closed tear and small crease to top edge of front panel and a small 1/2 cm closed tear to top edge of front panel at head of spine. Edges very slightly rubbed. Head of spine very slightly nicked and creased. Back panel of dustwrapper very slightly yellowed (being white background). Front panel and spine of dustwrapper bright. No fading. ***224 pages. 204mm x 136mm. ***'Old age is a notoriously difficult subject for the novelist to tackle, but one curiously appropriate to Stanley Middleton's sensitive, unsentimental, direct approach. Set, like all his widely praised novels, in a Midlands town, Cold Gradations is a study of James Mansfield, who has spent most of his life in a grammar-schoolroom, and is now lonely in retirement, conscious, after a serious heart-attack of his body's degeneration, half convinced of his uselessness, but trying to live vicariously, through the career of his highly successful, brilliant and loved son, David, a business tycoon who has forgotten his father's ideals. And yet Mansfield is constantly drawn into the lives of others in ways he sometimes resents, which fail to give him much comfort, but which, because of his lifetime's training, he cannot ignore. ***There is the marriage of David which is on the brink of breaking up, to Mansfield's regret rather than that of the estranged husband and wife. He is out of touch with them, yet manages to establish some rapport with their schoolgirl daughter. ***There are his 'neighbours', the Hapgoods, into whose tragic lives he is unwillingly drawn, though his intervention seems sadly without permanent effect. ***When we take our leave of Mansfield, he is still a sad figure, with a low regard for his own worth. Yet people turn to him with their troubles and seem to derive some comfort from his solid, academic attitude. He may feel old and useless, but in some strange way he is still necessary, still involving himself.' (Quote from inside front jacket blurb). ***'Mr Middleton tells his tale with a driving and subtle authority. His portrait of English provincial life, with its delicately graded snobberies, is masterly; it is in the honorable, even-tempered tradition of J. B. Priestley rather than that of the 'young angries' who swarmed out of this part of England in the 1950s. 'Brazen Prison' is a good and solid piece of close observation [Bruce Williamson in the Irish Times - review quote about 'Brazen Prison' by Stanley Middleton from back of jacket blurb]. ***A very scarce first impression of the true first edition in its original dustwrapper - in very nice collectable condition from this Booker Prize-winning author, especially rare to find signed and inscribed. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Sie wurden einzeln auf ihre originale Form gestanzt und eingeklebt. Der Text ist in 12 Punkt Poliphilus gesetzt).- Historia Plantarum, auch Conradi Gesneri Historia plantarum genannt, ist der Titel einer umfangreichen botanischen Enzyklopädie, an der der Schweizer Naturforscher und Arzt Conrad Gesner (1516-1565) während seines letzten Lebensjahrzehnt von 1555 bis 1565 arbeitete. Noch ehe Gesner das Werk vollenden konnte, starb er 1565 an der Pest. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt hatte Gesner über 1500 Pflanzenzeichnungen zusammengetragen, die er zu einem sehr großen Teil selbst angefertigt hatte. An Umfang und wissenschaftlicher Tragweite übertraf die Historia Plantarum vergleichbare Veröffentlichungen des 16. Jahrhunderts. Das Manuskript geriet nach dem Tode Gesners jedoch in Vergessenheit und wurde erstmals 1750 publiziert.[1] Die besondere Bedeutung der Historia Plantarum liegt in den ungewöhnlich sorgfältigen Darstellungen. Conrad Gesner verfügte über ein überdurchschnittliches Zeichentalent und war anders als vergleichbare Autoren von Kräuterbüchern des 16. Jahrhunderts nicht darauf angewiesen, professionelle Künstler zu engagieren. Gesner konzentrierte sich in seinen Zeichnungen auf eine detaillierte Darstellung des Habitus einzelner Pflanzen, bei denen einzelne, besonders charakteristische Teile mitunter stark vergrößert waren. Die Zeichnungen sind ergänzt um ausführliche Randnotizen und wissenschaftliche Anmerkungen. Dabei wird auf die spezifische Wuchsform der einzelnen Pflanze eingegangen, Fundorte beschrieben und auf morphologische Details hingewiesen.Der botanischen Nachlass von Conrad Gesner (1516-1565) liegt in der Universitätsbibliothek Erlangen die das Original für die Reproduktion zur Verfügung stellte.

        Dendritic Cells Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology

      Springer. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 353 pages. Dimensions: 9.5in. x 6.4in. x 0.7in.The understanding of the role of dendritic cells (DCs) in immune responses has come a long way since Steinmann and colleagues described these cells in 1972. - tensive research during the intervening period has provided a good understanding of the complexity of the DC system and its pivotal role in immunity. It is also now clearer how different subsets of DCs interact and regulate each other and how DC populations affect the function of other cells of the immune system. The improved understanding of their role in immune response has led to the idea that modulation of DC functions by, for example, pharmacological agents could be used as a pot- tial therapeutic approach in some pathological conditions. The actual applicability and therapeutic potential of all these approaches is yet to be fully demonstrated but nonetheless, animal models of human diseases are proving to be very helpful in the evaluation of manipulated DCs as a new treatment in diseases like cancer, auto- munity or asthma. DCs are integral to the initiation and regulation of immune response (Banchereau et al. 2000). The outcome of antigen presentation by DCs is determined by their maturation status, which can be induced by their interaction with danger signals. To recognise a wide array of pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMP), DCs express a number of pattern recognition receptors (PRR) such as Toll-like rec- tors (TLRs) and C-type lectin receptors (CLR) that recognise structural components of pathogens and discriminate between self and non-self molecules.

      Paris: Éditions de Minuit,, 1972. Octavo. Original cream card wrappers printed black and blue. With the original glassine. Very mild toning to spine panel and edges of glassine. An exceptionally bright copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author to French philosopher, writer and translator Roger Munier (1923?-2010) on the front free endpaper, "Pour Roger Munier, fidèlement, J. Derrida". Munier's many translations include Octavio Paz, Roberto Juarroz and Heidegger, with whom he forged a lasting friendship when he stayed in the Black Forest to perfect his German in 1949. Munier later introduced Heidegger to René Char. His obituary in Le Monde described him as a passionate writer and thinker and a mystic, whose favourite mode of expression was the "fragment". His main influence, apart from Heidegger, was Meister Eckhart. Derrida and Munier both contributed to L'Endurance de la Pensée (1968), a book of collected writings on Jean Beaufret. In 1967 Derrida sent Munier a copy of his recently published De la grammatologie. After having read it Munier sent him a warm congratulatory letter discussing Heidegger and positivism.

It changed the face of British comedy and influenced later comedy including Monty Python, Eddie Izzard and many more. It was broadcast in the the UK between May 1951 and January 1960. The dignified 'stiff upper lip' attitude still prevailed in the post WWII age, but many who lived through the war were more inclined to question the rules and authorities that controlled their lives. Onto this scene burst The Goons with a quick fire, irreverent brand of humour that mocked those in establishment and offered a different farcical view of the world. What made The Goon Show different was its attitude. The comedy was edgier than it contemporaries and it used mad characters, satire and ground breaking sound effects in a surreal way unlike anything had done before. "The Last Goon Show of All, broadcast on 5 October 1972, was a special edition of the famous BBC Radio show The Goon Show, commissioned as part of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the BBC. It was simulcast on radio and television, and later released as an audio recording on long-playing record. This in turn has been re-issued in other formats such as compact disc. A video of the television broadcast was also released on VHS and later on DVD, although with some omissions. In early October 2007, 35 years after the original broadcast, a full unedited version was broadcast on BBC 7, the digital radio channel dedicated to re-runs of classic shows." (Wikipedia)."Spike Milligan was the creative force and main writer of The Goon Show, however he was often assisted by a co-writers such as Larry Stephens or Eric Sykes. Occasionally if Milligan was unable to writer the show, others would script entire show. There were originally four main cast members: Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Michael Bentine. Spike Milligan would later be considered by many to be "The grandfather of modern British comedy" due to his work on The Goon Show and subsequent comedies. Peter Sellers would go on to become a world famous comic actor, best known for playing Inspector Clouseau in the Pink Panther movies. Harry Secombe remained a well loved singer and entertainer throughout his career. Michael Bentine left the group after only a few series and before the show reached it's peak of success" (Goon Show website).

Johnson offers his thoughts on the significance of the Apollo Program only months before the final lunar mission (Apollo 17: December 7-19, 1972) and his own demise in January 1973: ""The magnificent effort which took America into space and to the moon represents, I believe, this nation at its best. We took a dream, we perfected the technology to make it real, and we followed it all the way. Our adventures in the new world of space proved once more that America can do what it wills itself to do, if it applies to the muscle, the recourses, and the heart to get the job done."" The photograph has been inscribed by Johnson to noted Lincoln scholar and collector Arnold Gates (1914-1993). "

        Sashin yo Sayonara [Bye Bye Photography, Dear]

      Tokyo: Shashinhyoron-sha. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. FIRST EDITION, SIGNED BY MORIYAMA in both English and Japanese (kanji). "Sashin yo Sayonara (Bye Bye Photography) is the most extreme monument of the Provoke period, indeed one of the most extreme photobooks ever published. Daido Moriyama pushes both the form of the photographic sequence and the photograph itself to the limits of legibility, with a brilliant barrage of stream-of-consciousness imagery culled from his own pictures, found photographs - such as shots of car accidents - and images taken from the television set. An notion of 'good' technique is thrown out the window... The photographic language is one of blur, motion, scratches, light leaks, dust, graininess and stains, like Robert Frank or William Klein on speed. "Moriyama's vision is entirely consistent, and his willingness to be led to the edge of photography's coherence is the photographic equivalent of Surrealist automatic writing by a camera that almost has a mind of its own. 'I wanted to go to the end of photography', he declared, and the book is a summation of the Provoke period. It reads like a jerky hand-held cinéma vérité film. The pace is frenetic, the image bombardment never lets up, and we reach the book's end in a state either of breathless exhaustion or on an image-fuelled high. the tone is so ambiguous that it is not clear whether we are experiencing a dream or a nightmare, exhilaration or despair - or both at the same time" (Parr and Badger, The Photobook, I). Roth 101. Tokyo: Shashinhyoron-sha, 1972. Quarto, original printed stiff wrappers, original dust jacket. With rare original ephemera laid-in (as issued). Book fine, with the usual creasing to spine; dust jacket with a little toning to spine and a few scattered spots of light soiling. A superb signed first edition of possibly the most influential Japanese photobook.
