        Handbook of Physiology. A critical, comprehensive presentation of physiological knowledge and concepts. Section 2: The Cardiovascular System. 4 in 6 Vols. (all publ.).

      American Physiological Society, Bethesda, Maryland, 1979-1984, 4, ca. 3900 pp., zahlreiche Abbildungen, 6 orig. Leinenbände St.a.Tit. frisches Exemplar. 1.: The heart / volume editor, Robert M. Berne. 2.: Vascular smooth muscle / volume editors, David F. Bohr, Andrew P. Somlyo, Harvey V. Sparks, Jr. 3/1+2: Peripheral circulation and organ blood flow / volume editors, John T. Shepherd, Francois M. Abboud. 4/1+2: Microcirculation / volume editors, Eugene M. Renkin, C. Charles Michel."The first edition of the Handbook of Physiology section on Circulation appeared between 1962 and 1965. This publication of the American Physiological Society consisted of three volumes that covered many aspects of the physiology of the heart and circulation. Since that time knowledge has advanced slowly in some areas of physiology, more quickly in others. Meanwhile the total body of information has grown almost exponentially, making it increasingly difficult to organize and meld old and new data to provide the reader with a comprehensive, critical appraisal of cardiovascular physiology. Nevertheless, the aim of the revised second Handbook section, retitled The Cardiovascular System, is to accomplish these goals and produce authoritative reference works with extensive bibliographies. The books will be useful to students of physiology at all stages of study, to professional physiologists, and to interested scientists in related disciplines. The utility of the Handbook of Physiology, Circulation has been proved by its continued and ongoing use by many investigators and teachers, a condition the editors hope will also be true for this revision, but the accelerated pace of cardiovascular and other research will probably demand a subsequent edition in a shorter interval of time."

        A TESTAMENT OF FAITH. A LEAF FROM A COPY OF THE FIRST AMERICAN BIBLE, TRANSLATED INTO THE LANGUAGE OF THE ALGONQUIN INDIANS BY JOHN ELIOT AND PRINTED AT CAMBRIDGE IN NEW ENGLAND IN THE YEAR 1663

      Boston: Charles E. Goodspeed & Co, 1979. ONE OF 87 COPIES printed and bound by the Stinehour Press. This very attractive little leaf book contains a desirable leaf from Eliot's Indian Bible, the first Bible printed in America, along with a brief essay on its significance. In the words of Darlow & Moule, the Eliot Indian Bible "constitutes the earliest example in history of the translation and printing of the entire Bible in a new language as a means of evangelization." Darlow & Moule adds that this Bible "was the first scripture printed in North America, and also the first version prepared for a pagan people in their own language. John Eliot performed the Herculean task of learning the difficult Algonquin tongue, of translating, unaided, the entire Bible in this unknown and unwritten language, of overcoming many technical difficulties, and of then teaching the Indians to read their own tongue. Samuel Green, the printer, was aided greatly by James Printer, an Indian compositor and corrector of the press. . . . The language is now extinct." Eliot (ca. 1604-90) was a Puritan minister in Roxbury, Massachusetts, who, beginning at age 42, studied for 15 years the Narragansett, or Massachusett, dialect of Algonquin used by the Indian tribes in his vicinity. He worked for an additional eight years on his translation. Printing was begun in 1660 with equipment and supplies shipped from England by the Corporation for the Promoting and Propagation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in New England. The New Testament appeared in 1661, and the entire Bible in 1663. A descendant of the Plymouth colonist for whom he was named, the author of the essay here, John Eliot Alden (1914-91) had a distinguished career as a librarian and bibliographer, culminating in the production of "European Americana: a chronological guide to works printed in Europe relating to the Americas, 1493-1776," designed to be the successor to Sabin.. 210 x 180 mm.

        Portraits of the 70s

      New York, NY: Random House, 1979. Limited Edition. Original cloth, original slipcase. Fine. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, ONE OF ONLY 200 COPIES of Warhol's compilation of prominent celebrities, socialites, and cultural leaders of the 1970s, including Liza Minnelli, Truman Capote, Mick Jagger, Yves Saint Laurent, and David Hockney. In 1979, for the second time in a decade, the Whitney Museum of American Art had mounted a major exhibition devoted to the work of Andy Warhol. Warhol's work this time markedly contrasted with his iconic creations of the 1960s: "there [was] this major difference: whereas the earlier work was very neat and precise in execution (the Brillo box had, after all, to look like a Brillo box), the new work [had] a very slapdash look. This, as they say, [was] no accident. In the 60's it was important for artists of the Pop school not to appear to have any affinity with Abstract Expressionism, but in the 70's - such [were] the vicissitudes of taste-it was O.K. again for paintings to look smeary and 'unfinished'..." (New York Times). "With Warhol's gallery of contemporary faces, the decade of 1970s high society is instantly captured. In this glittering realm, light and shadow are bleached out by the high wattage of spotlights; colors seem selected from the likes of Baskin-Robbins; and brushstrokes offer an extravagant, upper-income virtuosity which appears to be quoting, for conspicuous consumption, a bravura tradition that extends from Hals through de Kooning" (Robert Rosenblum). "By accepting the photograph directly into the domain of pictorial art, not as an external memory prop for the handmade re-creation of reality but as the actual base for the image on canvas, Warhol was able to grasp instantly a whole new visual and moral network of modern life that tells us not only about the way we can switch from artificial color to artificial black-and-white on our TV sets but also about the way we could switch just as quickly from a movie commercial to footage of the Vietnam war. For Warhol, the journalistic medium of photography, already a counterfeit experience of the world out there is doubly counterfeit in its translation to the realm of art" (Robert Rosenblum). This limited edition includes a collection of 112 color illustrations and a catalogue essay by the renowned art critic Robert Rosenblum, who describes Warhol's portraits as "capturing an incredible range of psychological insights among his sitters." Signed in marker by Warhol on the colophon. New York: Random House, 1979. Quarto (8.5x9.5x1 inches), original cloth, original pictorial slipcase. Book with abrasions and light wear to corners of box, otherwise fine. RARE. Note: Housed in stunning custom decorated morocco box by noted book designer Sjoerd Hofstra.

        Ford Congratulates The Chairman Of The Commission On Government Procurement: "The Impact Of Government Contracts On The National Economy Is Immense. The Proficiency And Equity With Which Contracting Is Performed Has Much To Do With Whether That Impact Is Constructive Or Destructive"

      TLS. 1pg. 7 ¼" x 10 ½". April 5, 1979. No place. A typed letter signed "Jerry Ford" as former President to Perkins McGuire. He communicated on his personal letterhead with a gold eagle at the top: "Please accept my regrets that I am unable to be with you on this special evening. As you know...far better than many...procurement ranks extremely high in importance among the functions of the Federal Government. The impact of government contracts on the national economy is immense. The proficiency and equity with which contracting is performed has much to do with whether that impact is constructive or destructive. These, of course, are among the issues with which you dealt so productively as Chairman of the Commission on Government Procurement. I am advised that the National Contract Management Association is devoting its energies to improving the competence of those engaged in public contracting and the effectiveness of its processes. It is very fitting, therefore, that the association has recognized the contributions of Herb Roback to the achievement of these goals by honoring his memory in this fashion. I have been told that Chet Holifield was selected last year by NCMA to received the first award and that you are receiving the second. I could not possibly think of two more worthy recipients. By these selections, the Herbert Roback Memorial Award has already taken on considerable significance. My heartiest congratulations to you, Perk. This is a well deserved and appropriate tribute for yet another of your numerous contributions to good government." McGuire, whom the letter is addressed to, served as the Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Eisenhower, and was later appointed by President Nixon to be Chairman of the Commission on Government Procurement. The letter is in fine condition with two mailing folds and a slight stain above the text that affects nothing.
