        Neural Darwinism: The Theory of Neuronal Group Selection. (PRESENTATION COPY, SIGNED BY GERALD M. EDELMAN.)

      New York: Basic Books, 1987. - Signed, presentation copy of the the first printing of the First Edition. xxii, 346 pp; figs.; tables. Original cloth. Offsetting to front flyleaf, else Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. Inscribed on flyleaf: 'For Bill Baker/with admiration/and warm regards/Gerry.' Gerald M. Edelman: Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, 1972 (shared with Rodney R. Porter), 'for their discoveries concerning the chemical structure of antibodies.' See William H. Calvin's review for Science 240: 1802-1803, 1988, on Calvin's site. 'When chaos theory came along (which, for me, is dated to Otto Rössler's famous paper of 1983), it started to become evident how basins of attraction lived in the connectionists' networks. When complexity theory and artificial life came along on their heels, the possibilities of getting to the bottom of Hebb's dual-trace memory seemed promising. Then in 1988, I spent more than two months digesting Edelman's Neural Darwinism, thanks to a request from Science to write a book review that explained it all. I said that Neural Darwinism was essential reading (and it still is) for anyone interested in brains and development' (Calvin in 'Partitioning the Playfield', Chapter 6 of his The Cerebral Code: Thinking a Thought in the Mosaics of the Mind (Cambridge & London: MIT Press, 1996). 'Dr. Edelman has formulated a detailed theory to explain the development and organization of higher brain functions in terms of a process known as neuronal group selection. This theory was presented in his 1987 volume Neural Darwinism, a widely known work' (Nobel Foundation Web site). The recipient Baker is probably a physician at Massachusetts General Hospital: see video at www [dot] webofstories [dot] com/play/gerald.edelman/5 ‘When I got there I remember talking to a physician Bill Baker, who was in the room the first time, and I said, 'Bill, why did you ask me about a cyclotron?' He said, 'Oh, I ran out of questions and I just sort of thought, well, you know, try something.' And I said, 'Well, that's amazing because I couldn't answer most of your questions.' He said, 'That wasn't the important thing; it was the style of your response' ‘ (transcript). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Jackie Joyner Kersee

      - 11 x 14-inch silver gelatin print by the important American photographer celebrated for his work in fashion and for his portraits often in the style of classical Greek sculpture. This image is of Olympic athlete Jackie Joyner Kersee, taken in 1987 at Point Dume, California. Blind-stamped by Herb Ritts, lower right. One of the prints sent to Rolling Stone for their 1988 article on her, an alternate of Ritts' famous image of Joyner-Kersee running on the sand with her own shadow. Printed on a warm tone paper, it has been taken with Ritts' trademark shutter drag, slightly blurred effect, typical of many of his beach shots. Being a working print, there are some imperfections from being handled by the magazine, including a small bend on the top right corner and some mounting remnants on verso and recto upper edge, none affecting the image area.

        The Dream, copy #35 of 500, a pristine copy still sealed in the original publisher's shrink wrap

      Contoocook, New Hampshire: Churchill Literary Foundation, 1987. First, Limited, and Numbered Edition. Full leather. This is the first book publication, the finely bound limited first edition, copy #35 of 500 hand-numbered copies. This is the only copy we have offered still sealed in the publisher's shrinkwrap. A scrap of paper laid on the rear cover beneath the shrinkwrap is hand-numbered “35”; we presume to the point of near-certainty that this indicates the limitation number. The new owner can remove the shrinkwrap to confirm; we won't! Condition is pristine. The Dream is Churchill's revealing essay about a ghostly reunion with his father, Lord Randolph Churchill, in which Winston recounts the world events that have transpired since his father's death - without revealing his own role in them. Winston Churchill's father, Lord Randolph, died in January 1895 at age 45 following the spectacular collapse of both his health and political career. His son Winston was 20 years old. A few years later, Churchill would seek permission to write his father's biography and then spend two and a half years researching and writing - a major literary effort, but apparently an emotional one as well. Of the work, Churchill wrote to Lord Rosebery on 11 September 1902 "It is all most interesting to me - and melancholy too" (R. Churchill, WSC, Companion Volume II, Part 1, p.438). Of course history and longevity would dramatically favor the son, but when Randolph died, Winston dwelt very much in his father's shadow, both emotionally and in terms of the political career to which he already aspired. It is in this small, intimate piece of writing that we catch Churchill with that shadow on the eve of his 73rd birthday. According to Churchill, a "foggy afternoon in November 1947" found him in his "studio at the cottage down the hill at Chartwell" attempting to paint a copy of a damaged portrait of Lord Randolph when he turned around to find his father sitting in a red leather armchair, looking just as Churchill "had seen him in his prime." What ensued was a conversation about what had - and had not - changed since Randolph's time, ranging from trivialities and individual personalities to politics and the broad sweep of world affairs. Churchill, of course, never reveals his role in much of this history. Churchill's summary observations and appraisals to his father make a worthwhile study in themselves. But these are perhaps overshadowed by the emotional overtones which psychologists and sentimentalists will doubtless continue to parse for years to come. His family called it "The Dream." Churchill titled it simply "Private Article." Though he was seldom stinting with his words or their publication, Churchill locked the essay in a box where it remained, willed to his wife. Churchill died on 24 January 1965 - the same day his father died seventy years before. The Dream was first published a year after Churchill's death, on 30 January 1966, in the Sunday Telegraph and was subsequently included in The Collected Essays of Sir Winston Churchill (1976). However, The Dream was not published in book form until September 1987, four decades after it was written and more than 22 years after Churchill's death. Fortunately, the edition rose to the occasion of the long wait. Richard Langworth of the International Churchill Society presided over a lovely limited edition of 500 hand-numbered copies. This was an elaborate production, printed on acid-free archival paper and bound in padded red leather with gilt decoration and the Churchill arms blind stamped on the front cover. All page edges are gilt, with head and foot bands, as well as a satin page marker and silk endpapers. Langworth contributed a worthy Foreword and Sal Asaro a color illustration from an oil painting commissioned by the publishers. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A288.1, Woods/ICS A147, Langworth p.357

        Y Beibl Cyssegr-lan 1588

      National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth 1987 - 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. In brown cloth with blind tooling. Spine has title in gilt, some blind tooling. Internally, cream endpapers, title page in black inks, (iii), 555 pp, a few spots along text block edges, with its slipcase. A dedication, in Welsh, from the author Ieuan Gwynedd Jones to Harlech College to fep. A University of Wales production which is a facsimile copy of the 1588 Bishop Morgan Bible, an edition limited in numbers to 500 copies only, and now very difficult to find. A lovely copy of an important and always useful title! Morgan, bishop of St Asaph and biblical translator has been called 'the single most important figure in the history of the Reformation in Wales' (Williams, Wales and the Reformation, 342), because it was he who brought to completion the translation of the Bible into Welsh. The Book of Common Prayer, including the psalter, and the New Testament had been translated in 1567, but the task was left unfinished. See ODNB. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
