KOLLOID-BEIHEFTE. (Ergnzungshefte zur Kolloid-Zeitschrift). Monographien zur reinen und angewandten Kolloidchemie. Band 50.

By Ostwald, Wolfgang.

Theodore Steinkopff, Dresden & Leipzig: ., 1939. 478 p. 8vo. 230 mm. Cloth backed marbled boards. On the front paste down is a Nazi registration stamp: 'Dereinnahmt im bestandbuch uber Bucher' dated 1942, and signed by Rosenberg as karteifuehrer. Carl Wilhelm Wolfgang Ostwald (1883-1943) was a German chemist and biologist famous for his research on colloids. He was born in Riga, the son of the 1909 winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Wilhelm Ostwald. 'In the early 20th century, before enzymology was well understood, colloids were thought to be the key to the operation of enzymes; i.e., the addition of small quantities of an enzyme to a quantity of water would, in some fashion yet to be specified, subtly alter the properties of the water so that it would break down the enzyme's specific substrate.' It was proposed that life itself was explainable in terms of the aggregate properties of all the colloidal substances that make up an organism. As more detailed knowledge of biology and biochemistry developed, the colloidal theory was replaced by the macromolecular theory.' The Nazi registration impratur (essentially a license to print or publish) makes this example all the more interesting. DENTISTRY 1. Signed by Author(s). Hardcover.

"Herb Sanford unravels the Dorsey's complex relationship in a biography he is uniquely qualified to write. He got to know the Dorseys in 1925, soon became their good friend. This biography of the fabulous Dorseys is also something more. It is a portrait of a great era in American music and American life. Tommy and Jimmy came on the music scene just when the big bands were taking on a shape that would define the music of a whole generation.In an age of musical giants, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey commanded the peaks. They welded jazz and popular music, and gave distinction to both. In the twilight of the Big Band Era, the stars began to flicker. Glen Miller went first. Then the others: Artie Shaw, Paul Whiteman, Jimmie Lunceford, Claude Thornhill, Sammy Kaye, Glen Gray, Cab Calloway, Charlie Barnett, Eddy Duchin, Gene Krupa - some retired, some dead. Tommy and Jimmy held out longer than most. When they went, an era died with them." JAZZ 1 ** !. Hardcover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.
