        The Salmon Portfolio. Environment Canada. Limited Edition.

      - Ottawa. Environment Canada. Fisheries and Marine Service. Portfolio. 1974. Elephant Folio (24" x 19"). One of approximately 500 copies destined for Kings, Queens, desert sultanates, jungle potentates, plus prime ministers, presidents, ambassadors, foreign ministers and other worthies selected by the Canadian government (several countries received multiple copies) - included with the mix of luminaries receiving the portfolio were a few dim bulbs, such as President Duvalier of Haiti (Baby Doc) and the Entebbe Fisheries School (under Idi Amin). The rationale for this was that each United Nations country had just one vote to cast either to protect salmon stocks or not - in this instance, Baby Doc held the same voting power as Henry Kissinger. An undisclosed number of portfolios were offered to Canadian citizens at the price $500. This elegant portfolio was published in brown buckram over oak and lined in Bancroft Arrestox silver cloth. The portfolio was presented to Heads of State selected by the government, and the mission was carried out by in-country Canadian ambassadors who personally delivered copies. The portfolio was commissioned and designed to encourage and influence other nations to adopt and support Canada's position of protecting salmon stocks along both its coasts, with the hope that representatives of member nations attending the Third United Nations Law of the Sea Conference held in Caracas, Venezuela in June 1974, would be favorably inclined to champion the cause of salmon protection. The portfolio was the creation of typographer and designer Robert R. Reid and Artist David Denbigh, who served as Art Director and Producer for the project. Canada spent nearly $500,000 to produce it, and what a spectacular presentation it is. Contents of the portfolio: The book, "The Salmon" (12 x 9 inches), 79 pp. by Roderick Haig-Brown. The book is bound in coarse brown cloth with gilt titles on the spine and a paste-on label of Bill Reid's Haida salmon on the front cover. Includes twenty-one color plates of salmon held in four distinct colored brochures plus two descriptive brochures, 9 pp. each. All brochures and color prints measure 22" x 17". The first descriptive brochure is titled "The Salmon - Canada's Plea for a Threatened Species" setting forth the contents of the portfolio. Brochure titled "The Legacy" containing 5 silkscreen prints in two colors by Haida artist Bill Reid. A brochure titled "The Ceremony of the First Salmon" by Hilary Stewart. Brochure titled "The Atlantic" containing 5 prints - two reproductions of chromolithographs from Rev. Houghton's "British Fresh Water Fishes" [1873]; one reproduction of a hand-colored copper engraving by J. Stewart ca. 1840 from Goldsmith's "A History of the Earth and Animated Nature" [1873]; two reproductions of hand-colored copper engravings from Jardine's "The Naturalist's Library" [1833]. Brochure titled "The Pacific" containing 5 color reproductions of Pacific salmon by David Denbigh. Brochure titled "The Cycle" containing 4 color reproductions of watercolors by Rudi Kovach and 2 reproductions of gauche paintings by David Denbigh. The color plates were printed on the finest European papers of varying textures and compositions, and the salmon plates have a beautiful finish and luster which present the fish in exquisite detail. The brown cloth portfolio has a simulated argillite replica of Bill Reid's "Haida Salmon", 3 x 6, inset on the front cover. The portfolio is lined with Bancroft Arrestox silver cloth over an oak frame constructed from pews recycled from St. Michael's Church in Toronto. The portfolio is kept in a matching silver cloth slip case with Canada's Coat of Arms on the side panel. The entire work is housed in the original shipping box. This is the most lavish work ever done on salmon. The portfolio weighs 16 pounds, about the weight of a nice Chinook. Shipping at cost. The finest example of this work I've seen. Beautiful and elegant and all in fine condition.

        Immagini del no

      All'insegna del pesce d'oro, Occhio Magico. 45 fotografie in bianco e nero di Paola Mattioli e Anna Candiani. Con un testo di Arturo Carlo Quintavalle. Note biografiche delle fotografe. 24mo (cm 10x7,7). pp. 128. . Molto buono (Very Good). . Prima ed. di 1000 es. numerati. . Il libro "Immagini del no" - raccolta delle immagini più significative  delle battaglie del movimento femminista e delle molte manifestazioni di protesta nell'Italia degli anni Settanta - è stato recentemente definito da Martin Parr "uno tra i libri fotografici più interessanti stampati in Italia negli anni Settanta". Inoltre il fotografo e critico inglese, lo ha selezionato e ripubblicato anastaticamente in 'The Protest Box', un cofanetto con i "cinque libri di protesta più significativi che siano mai stati pubblicati".Da un'intervista a Paola Mattioli: "No Images - scrive Gerry Badger nel libro introduttivo che accompagna The Protest Box  - potrebbe quasi essere descritto come un libro fotografico "concettuale". Le fotografie documentano alcune delle molte manifestazioni organizzate dalla fazione del "No" prima del Referendum del 1974, e il motivo conduttore del libro contiene la parola "no", che appare in molte delle fotografie su striscioni, cartelloni e muri. Quel che in superficie sembra la semplice cronaca di una campagna politica, diventa perciò molto di più. No Images non è soltanto un'opera significativa del movimento femminista italiano degli anni Settanta, è anche una meditazione sulla parola "no", è la reiterazione ancora una volta della forza visiva della parola scritta nel paesaggio, e conferma l'uso della fotografia documentaria per segnare una differenza, qui a sostegno di una lotta specifica - forse sì, una lotta su una singola questione ma un'importante questione, per l'Italia - che, come ha scritto Arturo Carlo Quintavalle, "ha causato una rivoluzione del sistema di classe"" (da un'intervista a Paola Mattioli di Raffella Perna).

        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. Volume 3: Tardo and Espanoles Periods. Bolume 4-8: Casas Grandes Research and Reference Materials [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
