        Love.

      Dallas: Somesuch Press, 1983. 24pp. Inscribed by Stanley Marcus, noted miniature book collector and proprietor of the Somesuch Press, to his friend and fellow microbibliophile Donn Sanford. A collection of love poems by Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Browning, illustrated with two United States "Love" stamps and a British stamp in honor of St. Valentine's Day. Printed by the Feathered Serpent Press in black with vignettes and ornaments in bright red. This copy features a romantic designer binding by the British bookbinder Nicky Oliver. Inspired by the hints of red, small illustrations, and swirling floral motifs in the text, Oliver bound the book in fair goatskin that she painted and printed with pieces of floral lace dipped in coral-hued leather dye. The covers have a subtle sheen, and in the artist's statement she notes that "Gold foil was stenciled onto the surface of the leather and distressed to highlight the lace design." Gilt-tooled dots also trace some of the lines of the pattern and decorate all three pink edges of the book. Pieces of lace and oil-based inks were used to relief-print the pink, leather-jointed endpapers, which were also accented with subtle gilt-tooling. Housed in a handsome black quarter-morocco box adorned with decorated leather strips matching the binding and a gilt-titled pink lettering piece to the spine. Oliver's artistic background is in illustration and design, and she seeks to incorporate elements of these into her bindings. She was named a Licentiate of Designer Bookbinders in 2010 and has won several awards in their recent competitions. These achievements include "the Silver Triple" in the 2010 competition, with first prize for set book, open choice book, and the Edgar Mansfield Medal for best book. Extremely fine. (2 7/8 by 2 5/8; 73x67mm).

        La communauté inavouable

      First edition, one of 57 numbererd copy on vélin d'Arches, this one of 7 hors commerce, n°1.Handsome autograph inscription from Maurice Blanchot to his sister Marguerite : "Pour toi, ma très chère soeur, avec ma profonde affection".A very goo copy with a moving provenance.Marguerite Blanchot, organiste de renom à la cathédrale de Chalon, demeura toute sa vie dans la maison familiale, avec sa mère et sa tante. "Elle deviendra peu à peu, pour la famille, comme la mémoire des origines." Très proche de Maurice, elle correspond régulièrement avec l'écrivain qui lui témoigne une grande reconnaissance pour son dévouement envers leur mère impotente. Si l'intense affection de Blanchot pour sa mère et sa soeur transparait dans les dédicaces de celui-ci, on ne sait presque rien de leur relations. Dans l'unique essai biographique sur Blanchot, Christophe Bident nous révèle cependant : "Marguerite Blanchot vénérait son frère Maurice. Très fière de lui, (...) elle attachait une grande importance à ses idées politiques (...). Elle lisait beaucoup (...) Ils se téléphonaient, correspondaient. A distance, ils partageaient la même autorité naturelle, le même souci de discrétion." Blanchot lui adresse en effet de nombreux ouvrages provenant de sa bibliothèque, maintenant avec elle un lien intellectuel continu. Cultivant une discrétion absolue, Blanchot poussait l'art de l'effacement jusque dans ses dédicaces manuscrites généralement succinctes et rédigées presque systématiquement sur des cartes jointes aux rares ouvrages qu'il offrait à ses proches amis. A l'opposé, dans ces précieux envois à sa mère et sa soeur, Blanchot s'offre dans toute sa fragilité et dévoile une intimité jusqu'alors inconnue. Les éditions de minuit Paris 1983 14,5x19cm broché

        Icebreaker.

      Jonathan Cape, London 1983 - First edition of the third novel by John Gardner featuring Ian Fleming's secret agent, James Bond. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by John Gardner on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Uncommon signed. Mel Watkins writing in The New York Times Book Review praised Gardner for adding "a touch of the plot subtlety of less insistently action-oriented thrillers." He also applauded Gardner's updating of Bond. "Although Mr. Gardner's Bond is less raffishly macho and arrogant than previously depicted," observed Watkins, "the spirit of the 007 series remains intact, and few Fleming admirers are likely to object. There is, in fact, something appealing about a James Bond who can react to women with some sympathy and confusion at a crucial moment." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Mutable loci in maize. [Offered with:] Some parallels between gene control systems in maize and in bacteria.

      Washington: Carnegie Institution. First edition, the very rare offprint issue, of the first of the papers documenting McClintock's discovery of 'control elements,' for which she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, 1983. "Between 1948 and 1951, McClintock carried out a series of sophisticated experiments with variegated maize that revealed mobile genetic elements that could move from one chromosome to another. Since the mobile elements possessed the ability to alter the function of neighboring genes, McClintock called them 'control elements.' Because of the focus, in the 1950's, on the discovery by Watson and Crick of the structure of DNA and its genetic implications, McClintock's discovery of 'jumping genes' was not appreciated at the time. Although she had suggested that mobile genetic elements were probably present in insects and higher organisms, it was not until the mid-1960's that mobile elements were found to play a role in the spread of antibiotic resistance from resistant to sensitive strains of bacteria. In the 1970's, the formation of antibodies was found to be based in genetic transposition. In the late 1970's and early 1980's, it was discovered that growth-regulating genes, or oncogenes, are transposed from one chromosome to another in certain forms of cancer ... McClintock's discovery of mobile genetic elements in maize has counterparts in bacteria, animals, and humans; more-over, it also helped to explain how genes can change during evolution and to elucidate a series of complicated medical problems" (Magill 3, pp. 1435-4). The second offered paper McClintock first suggested the existence of mobile genetic elements in bacteria. "The maize cobs that we buy at the supermarket usually have yellow kernels. This is not always the case with wild forms of maize. In Central and South America where maize originated, one can still find primitive types of maize where the kernels are blue, brown or red. The colour depends on pigments in the surface layer of the kernel endosperm. The endosperm is the food store for the developing seedling. The synthesis of kernel pigments is controlled by the genes of the maize plant. In some cases one finds differently coloured kernels on the same cob. The explanation for this is that the cob is formed from a group of female flowers. Each of these female flowers may be fertilized independently by a pollen gram from a male flower. Maize cobs with differently coloured kernels arise when the pollen grains do not carry the same genes for endosperm pigments. All these phenomena can be explained on the basis of the laws of the inheritance stated by Gregor Mendel in 1866. What cannot be explained, however, and what puzzled plant breeders in the 1920's, was that maize kernels sometimes have numerous spots or dots, rather than being evenly coloured as would be expected. It was suspected that the dots on the kernels were due to the instability of genes involved in the pigment synthesis. These genes were believed to undergo mutations during the development of the kernel. Should such a mutation be inherited by several generations of daughter cells it would result in a differently coloured spot. This idea received further support when it was found that maize with variegated kernels also had broken chromosomes. The problem of variegation in maize was of slight importance from a practical point of view, but it fascinated Barbara McClintock because it evidently could not be explained on the basis of Mendelian genetics. "McClintock analyzed this phenomenon by studying chromosome changes and the results of crossing experiments in maize with different patterns of variegation. She was able to identify a series of genes on chromosome number 9 that determine pigmentation and other characteristics of the endosperm. She found that variegation occurred when a small piece of chromosome 9 moved from one place on the chromosome to another close to a gene coding for a pigment. The usual effect was to switch off the gene, and furthermore, the chromosome frequently showed a break at the site of integration. McClintock called these types of genetic material "control elements" since they clearly altered the function of neighbouring genes. In a series of very advanced experiments carried out between 1948 and 1951, McClintock mapped several families of control elements. These elements affected not only the pigmentation pattern of the maize kernels but other properties as well. She also pointed out that mobile genetic elements were probably present in insects and higher animals. In spite of this, her observations received very little attention. This was because her findings, when first presented, were overshadowed by the discovery that the DNA molecule stores the genetic information in its structure. It also became evident that mutations involving only one change in one of the building blocks in the DNA molecule could have serious effects. Under these circumstances, it is not surprising that few geneticists were prepared to accept that genes could jump in the irresponsible manner that McClintock proposed for controlling elements. The "state of the art" in molecular genetics at that time made it difficult to accept "jumping genes", and thus McClintock had to await the development of methodological tools powerful enough to verify in biochemical terms her great discovery. "In the mid-sixties, mobile genetic elements were found to play an important role in the spreading of resistance to antibiotics from resistant to sensitive strains of bacteria. This type of transferable drug resistance is a serious problem in hospitals since it causes infections that are very difficult to treat. During the 1970's, more support was found for the medical significance of mobile genetic structures. It was found, for instance, that the transposition of genes is an important step in the formation of antibodies. It has always been a mystery how the body, using a limited number of genes, can form an almost endless number of different antibodies to foreign substances. Nature has solved this problem according to the building block principle. When an individual is born, the chromosomes carry a set of mobile building blocks for antibody genes. By recombining these blocks in various ways in different cells, the body is able to generate millions of genes for antibodies. "During the last few years mobile genetic structures have attracted great interest in cancer research. In certain forms of cancer, growth regulating genes called oncogenes, are transposed from one chromosome to another. Tumour viruses in birds and mice have been found to carry oncogenes which they, in all likelihood, originally picked up from a host cell. If a virus then introduces these genes in the wrong place on the chromosomes of a normal cell, the latter is transformed into a cancer cell. "McClintock's discovery of mobile genetic elements in maize, therefore, has been found to have counterparts also in bacteria, animals and humans. "What led McClintock to devote her research to the variegation of maize kernels was that it did not lit in with Mendelian genetics. With immense perseverance and skill, McClintock, working completely on her own, carried out experiments of great sophistication that demonstrated that hereditary information is not as stable as had previously been thought. This discovery has led to new insights into how genes change during evolution and how mobile genetic structures on chromosomes can change the properties of cells. Her research has helped to elucidate a series of complicated medical problems" (Nobel Prize Award Ceremony Speech by Nils Ringertz). F. N.

        Omaggio a De Chirico. Arte contemporanea

      Edizioni La Gradiva, Roma 1983 - Tela editoriale fig. Ottimo esemplare firmato dagli Autori al frontis. Il volume proviene dalla biblioteca del pittore romano Luigi Civerchia. I ritratti qui presenti mostrano l idea di concepire il libro come un intelligente ed espressivo contenitore di memorie, le proprie innanzitutto, ma anche quelle dei diversi personaggi che egli ritrae, come intrecciandone i destini tra le pagine di uno stesso testo. Vale la pena notare che il nostro pittore ha scelto solo i libri come gallerie per i ritratti. Chi ha visitato qualche sua mostra, tra le tante tenutesi in Italia e all estero, avrà infatti osservato che nei paesaggi o in altre composizioni le figure umane sono per lo più assenti, o comunque, hanno un ruolo del tutto secondario. E quindi una vera scoperta il Civerchia ritrattista, e lo è ancor più considerando la particolarità di esprimersi su di un mezzo singolare come sono le pagine di un libro. Luigi Civerchia è nato a Roma, nel popolare quartiere di Trastevere, nel 1928. Dopo una prima esperienza presso la bottega di uno scultore, continua il suo percorso nell Atelier di Vittorio Grassi, momento fondante della sua formazione umana ed artistica. Si avvicina poi alla Scuola Romana seguendo con entusiasmo gli insegnamenti dei suoi Maestri ideali: Mafai, Pirandello e Quaglia. 8vo (cm. 24,3), 333 pp. con num.me ill.ni in nero e a colori n.t. Ritratti originali di Giorgio De Chirico (6), Aldo Bergonzoni, Marcello Muccini, Giuseppe Cesetti e Riccardo Francalancia (eseguiti da L. Civerchia, tranne uno di De Chirico opera di Nino Za e datato novembre 85). Si aggiungono altri tre ritratti di De Chirico su fogli volanti.

Chi ha visitato qualche sua mostra, tra le tante tenutesi in Italia e all’estero, avrà infatti osservato che nei paesaggi o in altre composizioni le figure umane sono per lo più assenti, o comunque, hanno un ruolo del tutto secondario. E’ quindi una vera scoperta il Civerchia ritrattista, e lo è ancor più considerando la particolarità di esprimersi su di un mezzo singolare come sono le pagine di un libro. Luigi Civerchia è nato a Roma, nel popolare quartiere di Trastevere, nel 1928. Dopo una prima esperienza presso la bottega di uno scultore, continua il suo percorso nell’Atelier di Vittorio Grassi, momento fondante della sua formazione umana ed artistica. Si avvicina poi alla Scuola Romana seguendo con entusiasmo gli insegnamenti dei suoi Maestri ideali: Mafai, Pirandello e Quaglia.
