        Clues to Diagnosis in Dermatopathology

      Amer Society of Clinical Pathologists / ASCP Press, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A., 1992, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fair, First EditionSize: 4to - over 9?" - 12" tall, 423 pages. Index. Glossary. Printed upon glossy stock. "The clues in this volume are organized accoring to where in the skin they are positioned, the first being in the cornified layer and the last one in the subcutaneous fat. Each of the 100 chapters consists of four pages. On the first page appears a single photomicrograph that depicts a clue, but provides no further aid to identification of it. On the second page, the same photomicrograph that was used to picture the clue on page 1 is shown again but this time as one among a sequence of three photomicrographs taken at low, intermediate, and high magnifications of a representative section of the disease for which the clue has Sherlockian value." - from Preface. Openings to each end of backstrip taped in place. Somewhat above-average external wear. Contents clean and unmarked. Binding moderately loose but intact. A worthy working copy of this prized reference.

        Protection of Materials and Structures From the Space Environment Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings

      Springer. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 617 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 1.5in.The goals of the 10th International Space Conference on Protection of Materials and Structures from Space Environment ICPMSE-10J, since its inception in 1992, have been to facilitate exchanges between members of the various engineering and science disciplines involved in the development of space materials, including aspects of LEO, GEO and Deep Space environments, ground-based qualification, and in-flight experiments and lessons learned from operational vehicles that are closely interrelated to disciplines of the atmospheric sciences, solar-terrestrial interactions and space life sciences. The knowledge of environmental conditions on and around the Moon, Mars, Venus and the low Earth orbit as well as other possible candidates for landing such as asteroids have become an important issue, and protecting both hardware and human life from the effects of space environments has taken on a new meaning in light of the increased interest in space travel and colonization of other planets. And while many material experiments have been carried out on the ground and in open space in the last 50 years (LDEF, MEEP, SARE, MISSE, AOP, DSPSE, ESEM, EURECA, HST, MDIM, MIS, MPID, MPAC and SEED), many questions regarding the environmental impact of space on materials remain either poorly understood or unanswered. The coming generations of scientists will have to continue this work and tackle new challenges, continuing to build the level of confidence humans will need to continue the colonization of space. It is hoped that the proceedings of the ICPMSE-10J presented in this book will constitute a small contribution to doing so. This item ships from multiple locations.

        THREE LIONS AND THE CROSS OF LORRAINE, BARTHOLOMAEUS ANGLICUS, JOHN OF TREVISA, JOHN TATE, WYNKYN DE WORDE, AND DE PROPRIETATIBUS RERUM

      Bird & Bull Press, Newtown, PA 1992 - tall 4to. quarter leather, paper over boards. 40, (22) pages. Limited to 138 numbered copies; this is copy "1," this work was printed at the Bird & Bull Press by Henry Morris using Van Dijck types by M&H Type on Frankfurt mouldmade paper (Berger A53). Three Lions and the Cross of Lorraine, Bartholomaeus Anglicus, John of Trevisa, John Tate, Wynkyn De Worde, and De Proprietatibus Rerum contains four essays written for this volume, nineteen facsimiles of the woodcuts from De Prorietatibus Rerum, and two actual leaves, inserted in a mylar folder, taken from a defective copy of De Prorietatibus Rerum (circa 1495 and printed by Wynkyn de Worde). This book was the first English book printed on paper made in England and the use of Tate's paper is proudly cited in the epiloque of the actual book. After Tate's death in 1507, three failed attempts to make paper in England happened during the 15th century but English papermaking was not established until John Spilman's successful mill in 1585. Hills has written about John Tate and his papermill. Such a leaf is rare, for it is highly unlikely another incomplete copy of Bartholomaeus will be on the market again. Henry Morris in his foreword says about this book, "I knew it would probably be the most important work I could ever hope to produce in the field of papermaking history." This copy has two leaves from the "tabula" in the pocket in the back pocket.

        Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earths, Volume 29 The Role of Rare Earths in Catalysis

      North Holland. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 436 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.5in. x 1.3in.Among the numerous applications of the rare-earth elements, the field of catalysis accounts for a large number. Catalysis represents approximately 20 of the total market sales of rare earths worldwide. As a matter of fact two main applications have been prominent in the last decades: zeolite stabilization for fluid cracking catalysts, and automotive post-combustion catalytic treatment. The oldest use of rare earths in catalysis deals with the structural and chemical stabilization of the zeolites for petroleum cracking applications. For a long time this has been an area of application for non-separated rare earths. The addition of several percent of rare earths in the pores of the zeolite results in a strong surface acidity, which is essential for an efficient conversion of high-weight molecules into lighter species, like low-octane fuel, even in the very aggressive conditions of the petroleum industry. The popular demand for high-quality air in spite of the traffic congestion in large cities resulted in larger and larger constraints in the emission exhaust from cars. Thus highly efficient catalysts have had to be designed, and due to the combination of its redox properties and very good thermal stability, cerium oxide has been since the beginning, early in the 1980s, a major component of the three-way catalysts (TWC) now used in all modern gasoline cars. The future of rare earths in catalysis is probably bright. The fact that approximately 400 patents are applied for yearly in the area since 1992 is an illustration of a very active area. Usage of rare earths in catalysis is expected to grow due to their highly specific properties. Instead of the physical properties used in electronic applications, one deals now with redox properties, water and thermal stability, coordination numbers and so forth. The rare earths are so specific in these properties that their use can hardly be avoided, not only for the beauty of academic studies but also for the development of industrial applications with immediate influence on everyday life. Careful control of the synthesis conditions and the definition of optimum composition in each case are the keys to the preparation of highly performing compounds for catalytic applications. They must actually be considered as high performance products with functional properties, and not just chemical species. Chapters devoted primarily to catalysis have been published in earlier volumes of the Handbook. In this volume several more are added. The first is an extension of the earlier chapter 43, on interactions at surfaces of metals and alloys, to reactions such as hydrogenation, methanation, ammonia synthesis, saturated hydrocarbon reactions, dehydrogenation of hydrogenated materials, hydrodesulfurization, and carbon monoxide oxidation. The second chapter reports on the wide variety of catalyzed reactions involving metals and alloys in the innovated form of metal overlayers or bimetallic compounds with some transition metals produced from ammonia solutions. This is followed by a chapter on catalysis with mixed oxides usually having perovskite or perovskite-related structures. Then follows a comprehensive discussion on the background and current role of cerium oxide and associated materials for post-treatment of exhaust gases for pollution control. These three-way catalysts (TWC) are designed to render harmless the CO, NOx, and unburned hydrocarbons from internal combustion engines. The next chapter considers the wide field of zeolite catalysts containing rare earths from their historic use in petroleum refining in the 1960s to other petrochemical and fine chemical applications today. The final chapter documents the use of the triflates (the trifluoro-methane-sulfonyl group which is a hard Lewis acid in both aqueous and o This item ships from multiple locations.

      Amer Society of Clinical, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. 1992 - 0891893393 423 pages. Index. Glossary. Printed upon glossy stock. "The clues in this volume are organized accoring to where in the skin they are positioned, the first being in the cornified layer and the last one in the subcutaneous fat. Each of the 100 chapters consists of four pages. On the first page appears a single photomicrograph that depicts a clue, but provides no further aid to identification of it. On the second page, the same photomicrograph that was used to picture the clue on page 1 is shown again but this time as one among a sequence of three photomicrographs taken at low, intermediate, and high magnifications of a representative section of the disease for which the clue has Sherlockian value." - from Preface. Openings to each end of backstrip taped in place. Somewhat above-average external wear. Contents clean and unmarked. Binding moderately loose but intact. A worthy working copy of this prized reference. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
