Rear: White, blank except for the handwritten Kenzo Tange signature. PLACE D'ITALIE: In 1984 at the request of Jacques Chirac, the mayor of Paris, Kenzo Tange made a reorganization proposal for the Place d'Italie, a plaza of about 200 meters in diameter south of the Seine, bordering an enormous roundabout. Approved in 1985 and built in 1991, it has brought a new liveliness to that part of the city. Tange's post-modern offices, shopping center, restaurant and hotel surround an atrium capped by a glass, sawtooth roof and ascending the plaza steps one sees an architectural extravaganza of interlocking steps and terraces.

Bound in a volume (blue cloth, gilt-lettered spine) with 27 other offprints by Lederberg (either alone or in collaboration), as listed below, plus one other offprint by Lederberg laid in loosely, and a paper by Lederberg's wife, Esther Lederberg. See list below for full descriptions. Volume bound for G. and E. Meynell, of the biology laboratory at the University of Kent, with their initials on the spine and address label on the inside front cover. Overall very good. (1) & (2) First Separate Editions. Garrison-Morton 255.4. (no. [2]). Lederberg shared the 1958 Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine with Tatum and George Beadle for their essential contributions to bacterial genetics. Among these contributions was Lederberg and Tatum's discovery of sexual processes in the reproduction of certain strains of E. coli bacteria, which they first announced at the July 1946 symposium at Cold Spring Harbor in their paper "Novel genotypes in mixed cultures of biochemical mutants of bacteria." "Gene recombination in the bacterium Escherichia coli," their first complete paper on bacterial sexual reproduction, was published the following year. [Lederberg and Tatum's] data showed that only when two mutants [the B-M- and T-P- mutants of the K-12 strain of E. coli] were mixed were prototrophs obtained: When single strains were plated, only the parental type was obtained. Even more significant, when prototrophs (recombinants) were tested for T1 resistance (the unselected marker), it was found that some were sensitive, others were resistant, but the frequency depended on which parent carried the resistant marker (Brock, Emergence of Bacterial Genetics, p. 82). This crucial discovery, together with the methodology developed by Tatum and Lederberg, provided the foundation for all subsequent research in genetic recombination. Lederberg had originally intended to study medicine, but he abandoned medical school after two years to study biochemical genetics under Tatum at Yale University. His early work in Tatum's laboratory was focused primarily on searching for sexual reproduction in bacteria. Bacteria at the time were thought to reproduce only asexually through cell division; sexual reproduction, if proven to exist in bacteria, would help explain how new genetic information could be introduced into these one-celled organisms. "[Lederberg] soon found that some strains of the colon bacteria Escherichia coli were capable of sexual reproduction. Observed sexual reproduction in these bacteria was achieved by the process named conjugation. In conjugation, the two bacteria involved become joined together by a conjugation tube; the "male" bacterium injects its chromosomal information into the "female" bacterium. Then, the daughter cell produced by this conjugation divides asexually. These observations led Lederberg and Tatum to carry out experiments in bacterial genetic recombination by examining the consequences of crossing (mating) two different bacterial strains. The resultant bacterial offspring they isolated were found to be a third strain, possessing characteristics of both parent strains used in the cross. Lederberg and Tatum names the process sexual genetic recombination and laid down the foundation for the modern science of bacterial genetics" (Magee, Nobel Prize Winners: Physiology or Medicine, p. 779). (3) First Separate Edition. Garrison-Morton 256.1. Lederberg left Yale in 1947 for the University of Wisconsin, where he founded and chaired that university's Department of Medical Genetics. During his tenure at Wisconsin he continued his studies in bacterial genetic recombination, collaborating with his wife, Esther Lederberg, and several other research associates. With one of these, his former student Norton Zinder, Lederberg discovered another means of introducing new genetic material into bacteria: the process of transduction, in which small fragments of hereditary material are transferred from one bacterium to another through the action of a bacterial virus. Lederberg and Zinder's discovery was published in their 1952 paper, "Genetic exchange in salmonella." Among the gene transfers that Lederberg carried out were the immunity to antibiotics and the resistance to these therapeutic drugs. These studies demonstrated that disease production and the resistance to disease by microorganisms were mediated by genetic processes. The identification of conjugation and transduction as means of introducing desired new genes into bacteria enlarged the methodology for investigation of the chemistry of heredity (Magee, pp. 779-80). The papers described above are bound into a volume containing 29 other offprints on bacterial genetics by Lederberg (alone or with collaborators), published between 1946 and 1961. Among these are Lederberg's "Gene recombination and linked segregations in Escherichia coli" (no. 1 below), containing the first genetic map of E. coli; Lederberg and Zinder's "Concentration of biochemical mutants of bacteria with penicillin" (nos. 2 and 3 below), describing the penicillin selection method of isolating bacterial mutants; and Lederberg, Cavalli and Lederberg's "Sex compatibility in Escherichia coli" (no. 12 below), announcing their independent discovery of the sex-determining F factor in E. coli K-12. Also included are a paper by Lederberg's wife (no. 32) and Lederberg's important 1987 review of his scientific work (no. 31). Many of the offprints listed below are cited by Brock in the discussion of Lederberg and Tatum's work contained in chapters 5.1 - 5.3 of his Emergence of Bacterial Genetics (1990), the definitive history of this field (see the list below for citations). 1.

        Byen bag regnen. Fotografier fra København af Krass Clement ('The City Behind the Rain: Photographs from Copenhagen by Krass Clement'). FIRST EDITION .

      Copenhagen: Gyldendal, 1987. Oblong8vo. Publisher's original illustrated wrappers. 153 pp. Illustrated throughout. Only minimal light wear to cover and edges. Internally clean and overall a near fine, very attractive copy.. Mainly famous for his book 'Drum' (1996) included in Parr & Badger, but the rest of Krass Clement's oeuvre is equally outstanding: 'The City Behind the Rain', Krass Clement's 4th book is a photo book masterpiece with black-and-white photographs from Copenhagen - one of his most sought after works. Beautifully designed book with charcoal grey and black wrappers matching the melancholic style of Krass Clement's photographs. This photo book was his breakthrough (in Denmark/Scandinavia) and by collectors and the artist himself considered the capital work. It is also one his most accessible books with very classic b/w photography influenced by both the nocturnal Brassaï & Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank, though the Copenhagen seen through Krass Clement's Leica is his very own. First edition. More pictures available upon request

        Poems. Translated by Michael Feingold. Illustrated by Neil Welliver

      Vincent FitzGerald & Company New York: Vincent FitzGerald & Company. 1987. First Edition in English of Ibsen's poems, one of 75 copies only, with six etchings, including a double page fold-out. Page size: 8-1/2 x 11-1/2". These etchings were executed in the roullette mezzotint medium by Welliver with the assistance of the master printer, Shigemitsu Tsukaguchi (who prints only for Welliver and Lichtenstein) in this painstaking method resulting in the subtle coloring in each plate. Printed on handmade Dieu Donne' paper by Dan Keleher at the Wild Carrot Letterpress in Perpetua, this is a splendid literary event. Michael Feingold, lead drama critic of THE VILLAGE VOICE for the past decade, is internationally known for his translations of Kurt Weill, Brecht, and Ibsen's prose plays, THE PRETENDERS and WHEN WE DEAD AWAKEN. He is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, NEA Translation Fellowship, and the American Book Award's Lowenfels Prize for Criticism. The late Neil Welliver, celebrated for his ability to merge Abstract Expressionist and representational techniques, has his work in the Whitney, MOMA, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Hirschhorn, Boston, Houston, Baltimore and Philadelphia's museums. He was Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Pennsylvania and resided in Lincolnville, Maine, where the rocky and wooded landscape that figures so frequently in his works bears a strong kinship to the Northern vistas celebrated by Ibsen. Fine. See an Image.

        Byen bag regnen. Fotografier fra København. [The City behind the Rain. Photographs from Copenhagen].

      [Copenhagen, 1987]. Queer 4to. Original dark grey wrappers. Very slight sunning to spine and a tiny nick to upper part of front wrapper. An 1988-inscription to front free end-paper. A very small oval stamp and two small spots to title-page, otherwise internally near mint. 53, (4, -index) pp., containing 128 full-page b/w photographs.. The uncommon first edition of Krass Clement's fourth book, being one of the most sought-after of his works. The renowned Danish photographer Krass Clement (born in Copehagen 1946) counts as one of the most esteemed Danish photographers, and his "Byen bag Regnen" as one of the most popular Danish photography-books ever printed. Clement's interest in photography developed already in his childhood, and he began photographing as early as the late 50'ies. He was educated as a film-director but soon turned professionally to still photography. His first book, Skygger af øjeblikke (Shadows of the Moment), appeared in 1978, followed by Det tavse land (The Silent Land) from 1981 and Gentagelsens fest (The Party of Repetition) from 1984, before his great work on Copenhagen, "The City Behind the Rain", appeared in 1887, presenting his magnificent melancholic, but also humorous and inspiring photographs from the 1960'ies and 80'ies of different aspects of Copenhagen and Copenhageners.His work, often presented in book-form, his favourite medium, is considered highly inspiring and poetical, in spite of their melancholic character, which makes them oddly compelling. His social-realist portrayal of Copenhagen in the 60'ies and 80'ies is very different from other contemporary works, and his critical but still sympathetic approach, with a sharp eye for the humorous, makes it both lively and of great artistic value. Clement is the first artist photographer to receive a lifelong disbursement from The State Art Foundation, and his works are displayed at both MOMA and the National Library in Paris

      Ediciones Dos Amigos Buenos Aires: Ediciones Dos Amigos. 1987. Artist's book, one of 40 copies, all on velin d'Arches paper from a total issue of 42: 40 on velin d'Arches and 2 on Japan paper, all signed on the colophon by publisher, Samuel Cesar Palui. Page size: 13-1/16 inches x 10 inches; [i] [1-10] 11-175 [176-180] pp. Bound: loose in original pink wrappers, author's name engraved in dark blue, title in light green, dark green, and gray large wood-type letters; housed in buff paper and red cloth box with red silk lining, title printed in black on front cover and on spine. Illustrated with 18 full-page engravings as follows: 3 by Gabriela Aberstury, 3 by Julio Pagano, 3 by Mirta Ripoll, 8 by Alicia Scavino, and a portrait of the artist by Raul Russo. Hand set in 14pt. Bodoni by Ruben Raul Lapolla and printed under the supervision of Samuel Cesar Palui in three colors. The text is in black, page numbers in red, and highlights and title page in blue and black. The book was started in 1984 and was not published until 1987. This elaborate edition is one of the most beautiful of the press and, in my opinion, the most beautiful edition of Borges' great collection of short stories. The images so capture the author's imagination, particularly the engravings for "El Acercamiento a Almotasim" and "Las Ruinas Circulares." See an Image.

        California Time

      Kaldewey Press (Postenkill, NY: Kaldewey Press, 1987). Folio. (36)pp. One of forty-five copies in a plexiglass binding by Christian Zwang of Hamburg. Signed by Gunnar Kaldewey. With numerous monochromatic and two-tone illustrations. Written, illustrated, designed, and printed by Kaldewey as Volume 5 of the Kaldewey Press series. In 1977, Kaldewey printed New York, his first book about America. Ten years later, California Time was published as a counterpoint to that volume. In it, Kaldewey offers his observations about California's landscapes, both natural and manmade, in prose that ranges from playful to bleak. He sees the landscape with an artist's eye, describing the "simmering city" and the "juicy orange of the West." These verbal images are illustrated in Kaldewey's stylized manner, including one double-page spread showing the Pacific Ocean in aqua and gray on a transparency. A remarkable production by one of the leading contemporary book artists. Housed in an orange cloth folding box, lettered in silver on the front cover and spine. Together with the original woodblock to the first illustration in the book. Printed in silver, the illustration is of a palm tree, placed across from the text: "It is the sun, the cars and the palm trees. A lot of light. Everything has to do with light." The block was inscribed on the back by Kaldewey in 1988.
