        Sequence Studies on Bacteriophage FX174 DNA by Transcription.

      Cambridge: Darwin College,, 1974. A dissertation submitted to the University of Cambridge for examination for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Tall quarto. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Photocopied typescript, text on the rectos only. 28 tipped-in photographs, 9 folding charts, and charts and diagrams in the text. Spine rolled, a few minor scuffs and marks to cloth, small hole in cloth of spine and two tiny holes at bottom edge of front board, a very good copy. The doctoral dissertation of Nobel Prize-winning molecular biologist Elizabeth Blackburn, signed by the author on the preface and with six neat manuscript annotations in her hand, including one of significant length on table 3.II. From the library of Frederick Sanger, with two small pencilled notes in his hand. Elizabeth Blackburn completed her PhD at Cambridge under the supervision of Sanger, whose lab was then focused on the bacteriophage FX174. Bacteriophages are viruses that attack bacteria, and FX174 is a particularly small and simple species that can live in E. coli, making it ideal for genetic investigations. Only a few years after Blackburn submitted her thesis, Sanger and his team completed the first successful sequencing of a DNA genome using FX174. The same virus species was later used to prove that fully-functional DNA sequences could be synthesised in the laboratory. Blackburn was herself awarded the Nobel Prize in 2009 for the co-discovery of the enzyme telomerase, which replenishes telomeres, the sequences at the ends of chromosomes. Telomeres protect the rest of the cell's DNA from damage, and they shorten during each cell division and as a result of certain types of chemical interactions, eventually leading to genetic mistakes. Telomerase repairs the telomeres, and while it does not naturally occur in most cell types it is present in stem cells and cancers, which reflects the telomere's connections with aging, cancer, and numerous genetic diseases.

Quarto (11 3/4" x 9 1/4") bound in quarter black cloth with gilt lettering to spine over grey cloth with pictorials at heal corner. Illustrated by Alice Wesche. Amerind Foundation Series number 9. First editions. In Casas Grandes the Amerind Foundation has provided the best written, best illustrated and best produced multi-volume work available on Northern American archaeology. The massive publication resulted from fifteen years field and laboratory study of the Joint Casas Grandes Expedition, a cooperative project of the Foundation and the Mexican Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia under the direction of Dr Di Peso. The archaeology and ethnohistory of the great trading center at Paquime (Casas Grandes) is the core of the monograph, the comparative anthropology following Walter Taylor's conjunctive approach, make up the ample medulla and cortex of the work. Di Peso applies the name Chicimecan (from the Chichimecs of Anahuac) to the Indians of the mesoamerican Northern Frontier, and labels local cultural subdivisions by archaeological or ethnographic prefix, such as Anassazi - or Hopi-Chichimecan. Gran Chichimeca is bounded on the south by the tropic of Cancer, the east by the Gulf of Mexico and the 97th meridian, the north by the 38th parallel and the west by the Pacific Ocean and the 124th meridian. Di Peso recognizes both local linguistic and cultural diversity and the related historical development of some cultural items in the subcontinental area. Mesoamerican contacts in Gran Chichimeca mostly involved soft diffusion by means of an Aztec-like puchteca complex - traders and artisans who traveled widely to the northwest exchanging local for foreign produce, for example northern turquoise for southern macaw feathers, but also introducing political, technological, religious and artistic practices. At no time in the historical continuum (in the Casas Grandes zone, 10,000 BC to AD 1821) of the Gran Chichimeca did any one conquest culture affect all the indigenous peoples; and it is equally apparent that not all of the conquest cultures came from the same Mesoamerican hearth. Skeletal remains from 461 recovered burials support the cultural evidence that the Viejo Period population and the Paquimians belonged to the regional Indian breeding population and that the puchtecha contacts resulted in little gene flow. In the 13th century Paquime covered 88 acres and served as trading center for 85,000 square miles. The buildings included 3-7 story apartments (one with 1780 rooms), ranch style house clusters, ceremonial mounds and ball courts, a merchandise mart, public plazas, wells, cisterns, underground water mains and sewers, signal towers, and hillside fortresses. The city was burned in AD 1340. (Journal of Anthropological Research Volume 32, number 2. J N Spuhler). Volume 1: Preceramic-Viejo Periods. Volume 2: Medio Period.

[Shanghai, Mission Press, 1856]. 8vo (23.5 x 14 cm). With each page printed from a separate woodblock on the outside of double leaves of Chinese paper (with their folds at the fore-edge). Original brown Chinese paper wrappers without a spine.

      M.N. Cutt, Mrs. Sherwood and her books for children (1974), pp. 17-18; Hanan, Chinese fiction (2004), p. 74; KVK & WorldCat (1 copy). Extremely rare Chinese woodblock edition of Mary Martha Sherwood's Little Henry and his bearer, first published in English in 1814, with the Chinese transcribed phonetically using the Latin alphabet following the Shanghai dialect (with occasional Hindustani words). It was translated into the Shanghai dialect by the Shanghai missionary Caroline Phebe Keith (1821-1862). Keith (née Tenney) came from a New Hampshire family. Her parents died when she was 16 and 17. In 1849, soon after her fiancée abandoned her, she decided to become a missionary, serving in Shanghai from 1850 to 1857. The book ''tells the story of a young British boy who, on his deathbed, converts Boosy, the Indian man who has taken care of him throughout his childhood ... Sherwood's tale blends the realistic with the sentimental and introduces her readers to Hindustani words and descriptions of what she felt was authentic Indian life. With this work, the obituary tract (which invariably stressed conversion and a Christian death) had assumed the colouring of romance'' (Cutt).The paper is slightly browned and in a few double leaves the head or foot of the fore-edge fold has torn a centimetre or two, but the book is otherwise in very good condition. The wrapper has a few small and very minor tears and stains, there is a larger tear in the front endleaf and the threads have come loose and are partly lost. A very rare Chinese translation of a famous children's book in a Latin-alphabet transcription.

      (Haarlem: Carlinapers, 1974. Tall, narrow octavo. (20)pp. One of forty copies. A reprint of the original 1943 edition, which was also published in a limited edition of forty copies. In this poignant satirical variation on the "Ten Little Indians" nursery rhyme, originating from a German concentration camp during the Holocaust, the "Meckerlein" or "nuisances" are those who oppose the Nazis. They disappear one by one, only to be reunited in the end inside the Oranienburg concentration camp. The pages are printed with bold typography that is oriented vertically across the page spread. Offsetting from printed text, else fine in stiff green wrappers with a tonal pattern and printed paper label. (Bohlman & Holzapfel, The Folk Songs of Ashkenaz, pp. 34-36).

        Title in running heads:] Hang- le zaeh-lok. [= Hengli shilu ("A record of Henry", a translation of The history of little Henry and his bearer)]. [Shanghai, Mission Press, 1856]. 8vo (23.5 x 14 cm). With each page printed from a separate woodblock on the outside of double leaves of Chinese paper (with their folds at the fore-edge). Original brown Chinese paper wrappers without a spine.

      - M.N. Cutt, Mrs. Sherwood and her books for children (1974), pp. 17-18; Hanan, Chinese fiction (2004), p. 74; KVK & WorldCat (1 copy). Extremely rare Chinese woodblock edition of Mary Martha Sherwood's Little Henry and his bearer, first published in English in 1814, with the Chinese transcribed phonetically using the Latin alphabet following the Shanghai dialect (with occasional Hindustani words). It was translated into the Shanghai dialect by the Shanghai missionary Caroline Phebe Keith (1821-1862). Keith (née Tenney) came from a New Hampshire family. Her parents died when she was 16 and 17. In 1849, soon after her fiancée abandoned her, she decided to become a missionary, serving in Shanghai from 1850 to 1857. The book ''tells the story of a young British boy who, on his deathbed, converts Boosy, the Indian man who has taken care of him throughout his childhood . Sherwood's tale blends the realistic with the sentimental and introduces her readers to Hindustani words and descriptions of what she felt was authentic Indian life. With this work, the obituary tract (which invariably stressed conversion and a Christian death) had assumed the colouring of romance'' (Cutt).The paper is slightly browned and in a few double leaves the head or foot of the fore-edge fold has torn a centimetre or two, but the book is otherwise in very good condition. The wrapper has a few small and very minor tears and stains, there is a larger tear in the front endleaf and the threads have come loose and are partly lost. A very rare Chinese translation of a famous children's book in a Latin-alphabet transcription.

        Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1974. First British edition of the author's seventh novel and what many consider to be his finest. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by John Le Carre on the title page. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with light rubbing to the extremities. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy garnered instant praise for Le Carre as "[t]he premier spy novelist of his time. Perhaps of all time" (Time). "Le Carre is simply the world's greatest fictional spymaster" (Newsweek). Le Carre’s inspiration drew from his experience of the revealing of the Cambridge Five traitors in the 1950s and ‘60s (Anthony, 2009), and the novel’s popularity can be seen in relation to those shocking events. In 2011, the novel was adapted into a successful film, starring Gary Oldman and Colin Firth, and it received three nominations at the 84th Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Actor. This successful production is but one of Le Carre’s numerous accolades in espionage fiction. He was awarded both the Helmerich Award and the Goethe Medal, and, in 2008, The Times ranked Le Carré 22nd on its list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945."

        Bagatelles morales. ... ridentem dicere verum. Quid vetat? ... Horat.London, for sale at Duchesne, Paris, [printed by Paul Vaillant?], 1754. 12mo. Contemporary tanned sheepskin with the coat of arms of the Dukes of Aremberg in gold on both sides, gold-tooled spine.

      Barbier I, col. 376; ESTC T128700; L. Adams, Coyer and the Enlightenment (1974). First edition of the collected essays of Gabriel-François, abbé Coyer (1707-1782), which had appeared before "sur des feuilles volantes", or pamphlets, as he mentions in his preface. These essays, often criticizing the society of that time, were extremely popular and deal with a variety of subjects: trade, economy, politics, etc., all introduced in a light-hearted way. Some are inspired by works of the Irish writer Jonathan Swift, for example the Découverte de la pierre philosophale (pp. 39-56) and the Découverte de l'isle frivole (pp. 147-226). All these brief works are here united under the title Bagatelles morales, or "Moral trifles". Only the first essay, Le siècle present (pp. 9-38) is published here for the first time. The other essays included are L'année merveilleuse (pp. 57-78), La magie démontrée (pp. 79-108), Plaisir pour le peuple (pp. 109-126), Lettre à un Grand (pp. 109-146), and Lettre à une dame Angloise (pp. 227-249). With the engraved bookplate of the Dukes of Aremberg on paste-down, with their coat of arms and their motto "Christus protector meus"; and with an armorial bookplate on first flyleaf. Slightly browned along the margins, with only a few occasional small spots. Binding rubbed along the extremities. Overall in very good condition.

        Sequence Studies on Bacteriophage FX174 DNA by Transcription. A dissertation submitted to the University of Cambridge for examination for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy.

      Cambridge: Darwin College, 1974 - Tall quarto. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Photocopied typescript, text on the rectos only. Spine rolled, a few minor scuffs and marks to cloth, small hole in cloth of spine and two tiny holes at bottom edge of front board, a very good copy. 28 tipped-in photographs, 9 folding charts, and charts and diagrams in the text. The doctoral dissertation of Nobel Prize-winning molecular biologist Elizabeth Blackburn, signed by the author on the preface and with six neat manuscript annotations in her hand, including one of significant length on table 3.II. From the library of Frederick Sanger, with two small pencilled notes in his hand. Elizabeth Blackburn completed her PhD at Cambridge under the supervision of Sanger, whose lab was then focused on the bacteriophage FX174. Bacteriophages are viruses that attack bacteria, and FX174 is a particularly small and simple species that can live in E. coli, making it ideal for genetic investigations. Only a few years after Blackburn submitted her thesis, Sanger and his team completed the first successful sequencing of a DNA genome using FX174. The same virus species was later used to prove that fully-functional DNA sequences could be synthesised in the laboratory. Blackburn was herself awarded the Nobel Prize in 2009 for the co-discovery of the enzyme telomerase, which replenishes telomeres, the sequences at the ends of chromosomes. Telomeres protect the rest of the cell's DNA from damage, and they shorten during each cell division and as a result of certain types of chemical interactions, eventually leading to genetic mistakes. Telomerase repairs the telomeres, and while it does not naturally occur in most cell types it is present in stem cells and cancers, which reflects the telomere's connections with aging, cancer, and numerous genetic diseases.
