        Genetic Transformation of Drosophila with Transposable Element Vectors

      Washington D.C.: American Association for the Advancement of Science, 1982. Washington D.C.: American Association for the Advancement of Science,, 1982. [Offprint from] Science. Volume 218, pages 348–353. 22 October, 1982. 4 page offprint. Original self-wraps. Fine condition. Offprint of the paper that announced "the first successful germ-line genetic engineering of a multicellular animal" (Howard Huges Medical Institute biography). Previously, scientists had been able to manipulate the genomes of single-celled bacteria, but no one had altered the genome of a multi-cellular creature with viable changes that could be passed on to it offspring. In this pioneering work, Rubin and Spradling isolated the fruit fly P element, a DNA sequence that can change position within the genome, and attached to it a new gene coding for abnormal eye colour. Once inserted into cells as part of the P element, the new gene was incorporated into the organism's DNA and the resulting flies, and their offspring, displayed the abnormality. In addition to this important work, Rubin also led the successful effort to sequence the fruit fly genome. A fine copy of this uncommon and important offprint.

A nice clean first edition of Strieder's work on DrerFirst EditionBound in green cloth with gilt lettering and unclipped dust wrapperAlbrecht Drer (1471 1528) was a German painter, printmaker and theorist from Nuremberg. His still-famous works include the Apocalypse woodcuts, Knight, Death, and the Devil (1513), Saint Jerome in his Study (1514) and Melencolia I (1514), which has been the subject of extensive analysis and interpretation. His watercolours mark him as one of the first European landscape artists, while his ambitious woodcuts revolutionised the potential of that medium. Drer's introduction of classical motifs into Northern art, through his knowledge of Italian artists and German humanists secured his reputation as one of the most important figures of the Northern Renaissance. This is reinforced by his theoretical treatise which involve principles of mathematics, perspective and ideal proportions. His prints established his reputation across Europe when he was still in his twenties, and he has been conventionally regarded as the greatest artist of the Renaissance in Northern Europe ever since. Condition: The bind is firm. There is almost no wear to the extremities. There is almost no wear to the dust wrapper including some very minor shelfwear. Internally the pages are bright and clean. Overall the condition of the book is near fine with a near fine dust wrapper..

        Murder Unprompted

      London - Victor Gollancz, 1982. London - Victor Gollancz, 1982 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Hardbound volume in red paper covered boards with unclipped dustjacket. First edition, signed by the author. Simon Brett (born 1945) is a writer of detective fiction and also a tv and radio producer. He wasinvolved in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, as well as many episodes of cult comedy series The Burkiss Way, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue and Just a Minute. Here is another of Simon Brett's fascinating blends of crime, detection and back-stage drama. This time he provides what might be described as the biography of a play, from the cradle to the grave - from author (schoolmaster Malcolm Harris, an innocent in the theatre) to producer (unscrupulous and up-and-coming Paul Lexington) to theatre (provinical rep at Taunton) to director (whizz-kid Peter Wickton) to cast (which includes Mr Brett's bit-player detective, Charles Paris) to West End transfer (and the addition to the cast of that star of stage and screen, the ever-charming Michael Banks). So far, so good: everyone delighted, other than those demoted by the cast changes for the West End. But now, trouble begins. Banks can't learn his lines. And than, he's shot dead on stage on the first night. Thereafter, Charles Paris has never been busier: not only is he solving the murder, but he has also taken on Banks's role, playing lead for the first time ever. In fact, playing lead helps him to solve the murder. Once again, a novel to delight all theatre buffs as well as all crime addicts. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is no wear to the extremities. The dustjacket is unclipped with no wear. Internally the pages are clean and bright. Overall the volume is in fine condition in a fine dustjacket..
