        Lengthy Autographed Letter Signed to the Akron, Ohio Medical Society

      1978 - American gastroenterologist who was the first to discover and describe the disorder that bears his name: Crohn's Disease. 2 pages (front and back) on personal stationery, no place, August 31, 1978. In this letter, Crohn reminisces about how he got started in medicine as an intern for famed physician Emanuel Libman, assisting with autopsies, and his eventual discovery of Crohn's Disease of the Colon, in small part: ".My active scientific approach to medicine occurred as a fluke. Dr. Libman, who was head of the laboratory as well as medicine, wanted to pick an alert intern for the Lab. That is where I learned not only pathology.but bacteriology. Later, on the wards of Mount Sinai I persuaded Dr. Berg, the prominent surgeon, to operate upon patients with symptoms in the right lower quadrant. 'NO, he said, they are all tuberculosis.' But when I said the mass felt like a tumor he relented. Soon I had fourteen such cases and went to New Orleans for the meeting of the American Gastroenterologist Society and read my paper. I was correct - a few year later I presented my findings as a form of Colitis - but the AMA insisted, over my protests, in calling this 'Crohn's Disease.' Fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Snow Leopard

      New York: Viking Press, 1978. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good. Octavo (23 cm), pp. 338. Signed by author on half title page. Dark blue boards with silver spine titling, blue medallion. Pictorial jacket and endpapers (maps of the Tibetan Plateau and Inner Dolpo). Jacket and boards with very slight corner wear, jacket with a few small closed tears and foxing on underside. Reviewers critiqued this double National Book Award-winner (1979 and 1980), for the way Matthiessen folded natural history, personal tragedy and religion into a travel memoir (Roberson, I295-347), but the book proved to be a forerunner in the nature writing genre, combining memoir and the natural world, and a unparalleled classic of narrative nonfiction.

      Altogether eight issues, 34, 38, 26, 43, 51, 43, 43, 43 pp., along with laid in posters and supplements, comprising a complete run of the poetically-minded anarchist underground magazine, each produced under the direction of a different editor, among them Andreas Hallen, Martin Soder, Arno Reinhard, Eckart Wähner and Stefan Saarbach, covering diverse topics from children's rights, music and film to censorship and state control, illustrated throughout with reproductions of photographs, drawings and collages. 4to. Illus. wrpps. Berlin (Landesverband der Selbstdenker und Einzelkämpfer) 1978-1980. Founded as a response to the "informational chaos" represented by the editorial strategy of the contemporaneous Berlin anarchist magazine INFO B.U.G., the group behind Traumstadt sought to emphasize collective solidarity and dream consciousness as a path toward political and social liberation, motives which are amply reflected in the magazine's surreal graphic design and cover art.

During World War II, Crossfield was an instructor and trained as a fighter pilot, although he did not see action. As the chief test pilot for North American Aviation, he piloted the X-15, a rocket-powered craft that was designed to reach the fringes of space, and he narrowly escaped two brushes with death¿once when an engine blew up and the plane split in two during an emergency landing and again when the X-15 engine exploded during a ground test. Crossfield served as an executive for various airlines and as a consultant (1977¿93) to the House Committee on Science and Technology. He was killed when his plane crashed in the mountains of northern Georgia during a thunderstorm. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Here is an accomplished biologist explaining, in notably clear and unprevaricating language, what he thinks his subject now has to offer to the understanding of man and society. The implications of Wilson's thesis are rather considerable, for if true, no system of political, social, religious or ethical thought can afford to ignore it (The New Republic).

        Anita Loos Collection includes 10 Autographed Signed Letters, most with envelopes; 2 Typed Letter Signed; 8 Autographed Signed Notes & Christmas Cards and 5 Photos

      1978. . Anita Loos was an American screenwriter, playwright and author, best known for her blockbuster comic novel, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. She wrote film scripts from 1912, and became arguably the first-ever staff scriptwriter, when D.W. Griffith put her on the payroll at Triangle Film Corporation. She went on to write many of the Douglas Fairbanks films, as well as the stage adaptation of Colette's Gigi. "In attempting to chronicle the sordid end of Anita's life, Carey is restricted by the impassive voice he has assumed. In her last few years, Anita devoted herself to Gladys and her young charge, Miss Moore. But when Anita was ill, Gladys was 70 years old and possibly had a drinking problem. Carey's description of the battle over Loos' will and her friends scandalized reaction to her relationship with Gladys and Miss Moore, who are African-American, is blank, uninflected. The sadness and tragedy of Anita's loneliness are left unexamined. Quoted from Aline Brosh review of Gary Carey's 1988 Anita Loos a Woman in a Man's World book. Her long-time housekeeper Gladys granddaughter also names Gladys, became Loos' adopted daughter renamed "Miss Moore". 3 photos of "Miss Moore" are included in this collection. Charles Forsythe was producer, actor, director who lived in New York and a very good friend of Anita Loos. 10 Autographed Signed Letters, most with envelopes: • ALS dated 1959, Oct 13, Dearest Charles… • ALS dated 1961, Mar 29, Dearest Charlie…thanking him for the telegram about her books and seeing him at the theatre; • ALS dated 1966, Oct 5, Dearest Charles…thanking him for his message and news clipping: "Since we're all here for the winter why not pop in one day at tea time?
