        An Odd Bestiary. Text compiled and annotated by Laurie Block

      [Easthampton, MA]: Cheloniidae Press. 1982. First Edition, one of 200 copies all on Rives lightweight paper, from a total issue of 300 copies, signed by the artist, Alan James Robinson, and hand-numbered by him on the colophon page. Page size: 13-1/2 inches x 9- 3/4 inches; 158pp including 6pp. Introduction by Laurie Block and 13pp. bibliography by Ms. Block. Bound by Grey Parrot: red quarter leather and light tan cloth over boards, tan cloth over boards folder for extra suite of engravings, clamshell box of tan linen over boards with red morocco spine stamped in gold gilt with title, fine. Each letter of the alphabet is exemplified by an animal whose name represents that letter. Each letter has its own page with a small woodengraving of the animal above printed text describing the animal. This is followed by an original full-page woodengraving of the animal with a caption and source printed in red by a page of text. The first letter of each of the 26 text sections is in red, original calligraphy by Betse Curtis in the style of Old English Gothic letters. The colophon features a red alphabet in Old English Gothic letters surrounding the debossed turtle (cheloniidae) with the colophon text printed in Arrighi. The text of the book is in Centaur as well as Arrighi, set in monotype by Mackenzie-Harris, with some hand-setting by Arthur Larson. The text, compiled by Laurie Block from five centuries of travelers' accounts, is "the story of how men came to view the animate world as a reality with its own unique history, integrity, and order." The earliest bestiaries - full of fantasy and little fact - from the medieval period seem elementary in comparison to those produced by the scholarship of the Renaissance. Humans had renewed their efforts to portray and accurately describe those other living creatures that share their planet. And, their ever-expanding audience was delighted. This desire to see and know the living world continues unabated. Here is a textual survey from publications as early as the 1577 THE HISTORY OF TRAVAILE IN THE WEST AND EAST INDIES... by Richard Eden (for the Elephant's entry) to the 1839 NARRATIVE OF THE SURVEYING VOYAGES OF HIS MAJESTY'S SHIPS ADVENTURE AND BEAGLE... by Charles Darwin (for the Tortoise's entry). There are 26 wood engravings by Alan James Robinson for each animal / letter of the alphabet. There are also 26 smaller linecuts which appear above the page of text with the first letter of the animal's name printed over / with the image. The woodengraving is a full-page image with a sentence, printed in red, below the engraving referring to the animal. This is an altogether welcome addition to the much sought after bestiary. Elegantly and beautifully executed, it is one of Mr. Robinson's most charming endeavors. See an Image.

Introduction and afterword in Swedish. Boards a little rubbed to corners. A lovely copy. More images available on request. Scarce. From Bokomotiv: "In the nineteen seventies, photographer Esaias Baitel lived in France, in the Parisian suburb of Aubervilliers, for five years, which, among other things, resulted in a book and an exhibition that has toured the world... ...The Zone describes a neighborhood where motor bikes, rock and roll, and swastikas go hand in hand. In order to get close to these ÓRockersÓ, Esaias had to tell them that he was a Swede of Walloon origin. To introduce himself as a Jew in this environment would not have been cool. The photos do not show lost or mislead youths, but take us very close to a integrated subculture, with entire families and small children. / There are a lot of films and documentaries about the problems that immigrants encounter in France. Here we get to see the pictures of the other side. Confrontations are not hard to imagine. Esaias BaitelÕs photos pointed towards the future. In the nineteen seventies, he documented something that later was to erupt throughout Europe: the different forms and shapes of neo nazism. The photos are accompanied by Esaias BaitelÕs texts, describing his experiences living among the Rockers." An important and chilling work.

        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.
