Electricity and the Electric Telegraph. [In two volumes]

By George B. Prescott

New York: Appleton and Company, 1885, 1888. Later printings. Cloth. Very good/none as issued. Mixed set with continuous pagination in publishers original brown cloth. In 2 volumes. Vol. I: xii, [5] -602, [i]-iii, [3] pages. Vol. 2: viii, [603] -1120, [9-tables] , [I-blank], [i]-ii pages . 8vo. Original brown publisher's cloth with uniform spine designs but different decorations in blind. With several old institutional stamps on the title page and the Dibner Institute stamp on the front pastedown endpapers (properly withdrawn). Wear and bumping to the corners. Wear to head and tail of both spines. Binding sound with one signature a bit proud in volume 1. Both volumes are copyrighted 1884, but Vol. l (a gift of Bern Dibner) is the 7th edition dated 1888 and Vol. 2 (a gift of IBM) is the sixth edition dated 1885. Ad for Prescott’s latest works in back matter, including “Bell’s Electric Speaking Telephone.” Very Good. See Sterling and Shiers History of Telecommunications Technology, An Annotated Bibliography, **6-059 (which notes the 1877, 1881, and 1885 editions) . Wheeler Gift Catalogue, I, 2045 (referencing 1877 first edition) "Comprehensive, descriptive treatise," Cyclopaedia of American Biography V/108. A continuation of Prescott's well regarded "History, Theory, and Practice of the Electric Telegraph" (first published in 1860, and with several editions through 1866). "Electricity and the Electric Telegraph spends "the first 280 pages or so on electricity in general, while the rest focuses on the telegraph." It went through many editions, with 1877 being the first. George Bartlett Prescott was well positioned to write such a book. He was a manager of telegraph offices from 1847-1858, then Superintendent of the American and in 1866 of the Western Union telegraph companies' lines, and in 1869 electrician of the Western Union telegraph company. He was also electrician of the International Ocean Telegraph Company from 1873 to 1880, and later travelled overseas to review the technologies being used there. He later rose to executive and board positions in several companies including the Bell telephone company of Philadelphia. He also had several related patents, and wrote numerous articles for the technical press as well as several books." --- Kuenzig Books

Serious Questions: An ABC of Skeptical Reflections

By Erwin Chargaff

Boston: Birkhäuser, 1986. First Edition, First Printing. Cloth. Fine/fine. A fine first edition, first printing in a fine dust jacket. As new. Dust jacket now protected in a clear, removable, archival cover. viii, 261 pp. Octavo, 5 3/4 x 8 1/2 inches tall. Erwin Chargaff (11 August 1905 – 20 June 2002) was an Austro-Hungarian biochemist that immigrated to the United States during the Nazi era and was a professor of biochemistry at Columbia University medical school. Through careful experimentation, Chargaff discovered two rules that helped lead to the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA. The first rule was that in DNA the number of guanine units is equal to the number of cytosine units, and the number of adenine units is equal to the number of thymine units. This hinted at the base pair makeup of DNA. The second rule was that the relative amounts of guanine, cytosine, adenine and thymine bases vary from one species to another. This hinted that DNA rather than protein could be the genetic material. -- wikipedia

Before joining the Cornell faculty in 1946, he taught at Harvard and the University of Wisconsin, and for three years was the historian for the Radiation Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1964, he was named Goldwin Smith Professor of the History of Science and in 1970 he became director of the Society for the Humanities at Cornell. Guerlac was awarded the George Sarton Medal by the History of Science Society in 1973, was named a Guggenheim Fellow in 1978, and in 1982 was named Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur by the French government. Guerlac's books include Science in Western Civilization, Newton on the Continent, and Lavoisier: The Crucial Year, for which he received the Pfizer Prize in 1959. At the time of his death Professor Guerlac was completing an annotated edition of Newton's Opticks, which was first published in 1704. --- Cornell University

The Vital Force: A Study of Bioenergetics

By Franklin M. Harold

New York: W.H. Freeman & Company, 1986. First Edition, First Printing. Glossy pictorial cover. Fine/none as issued. A very near fine first edition, first printing. Glossy pictorial boards. Binding is tight, sturdy and square. Only flaw is the previous owner's name neatly stamped on half-title. Text is clean and bright. Illustrated throughout with drawings, photos, charts and graphs. xviii, 577 pp. including index. Octavo, 7 1/2 inches x 9 1/2 inches tall. As an undergraduate, I searched in vain for a book that would expand my knowledge of biochemistry without simultaneously diminishing my enthusiasm for the subject. Subsequently, such books have been written, Watson’s Molecular Biology of the Gene being an outstanding example. Harold’s book is the equivalent for those interested in any aspect of bioenergetics. He points out that “bioenergetics has recently attained a degree of integration comparable to that of molecular genetics”, and that “the principle of energy coupling by ion currents, given a clear and general expression in Mitchell’s chemiosmotic hypothesis, together with the Huxleys’ slidingfilament model of muscle contraction, has provided the possibility of giving a reasonably coherent account of how cells generate useful energy and perform work”. “That is the object of this book” which is “chiefly addressed to students and researchers in biochemistry, physiology, microbiology and cell biology who seek the wider perspective on their particular subject that may come from an appreciation of biological energetics”. I consider that this book has achieved its object. It has done so by way of its content, structure, excellent quality of illustration and, most of all, by the clarity of thought and presentation of its author. On the whole, explanations of experiments and ideas are given more comprehensive treatment than is possible in general textbooks or learned reviews and it is unlikely that a student will need to go elsewhere for a fuller explanation; it is all here, written in a stimulating, lucid style. One (small) exception is the experimental evidence for the Qcycle, where Harold says that “one can intuitively work out how the configuration of a Q-cycle explains the peculiar redox interplay between cytochrome cl and b-566”. Intuition, however, comes from experience of related phenomena (and experiments) and is not a reliable guide when trying to understand bioenergetics and, on the whole, Harold provides a superb text to help us in avoiding it. The lists of references (with titles) at the end of each chapter are excellent, but there is no contents list, which, together with the limited index makes the book inconvenient for rapid reference. A more important flaw is the lack of information about structures. Other texts must be consulted to find the structure of ATP, NAD, FAD, haem, ferredoxin, phospholipids, proteins, etc. There is no doubt that many of the remaining questions of bioenergetics await, for their answer, a better understanding of the relationship between structure and function of the electron transport and proton-translocating proteins. It would be a pity if such matters were to be disclaimed as irrelevant by those whose enthusiasm for bioenergetics is stimulated by this book. ... --- Chris Anthony, FEBS Letters 1987

The Professor, the Institute, and DNA: Oswald T. Avery, His Life and Scientific Achievements

By René Dubos

New York: The Rockefeller University Press, 1978. Second Printing. Cloth. Near fine/near fine. About fine second printing in a fine dust jacket. Blue cloth boards with silver foil facsimile signature on front cover and silver foil titling on spine. Binding is sturdy, square and tight. Previous owner's name double stamped on first free end paper, otherwise as new. Text clean and bright. Unclipped, original dust jacket is about fine with mild shelfwear, no tears or chips. 238 pp. including index. Octavo 6 1/4 x 9 1/2 inches tall. Oswald Theodore Avery is little known outside of the scientific community. Yet, this extraordinary man, here brought vividly to life by a perceptive friend and sophisticated scientific colleague, was a monumental force in the development of medical research in the United States. Even among scientists, Avery is known chiefly as the senior author of a paper published in 1944 that identified DNA as the purveyor of genetic information. Two things make this highly personalized biography a landmark volume. First, its technical chapters clarify the philosophical concepts that lie behind today's understanding of the immunology of bacterial infection. Second, not a single existing textbook has ever described the laborious methods by which the men in Avery's laboratory discovered the genetic import of DNA. This is the story of a man and a place that were uniquely suited to each other—O.T. Avery and The Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. It is also the story of a charming, forceful, and enigmatic personality—a man whose character imposed a lasting influence on his associates and on the direction of scientific investigation throughout the world. And, like any good narrative, the story has its heroes and its villains, its disappointments and its triumphs. Only a person with the expertise, insight, and sensitivity of a René Dubos could have combined the science, the times, and the man with such penetration". -- Dust jacket

Atmospheric Diagnostics of Stellar Evolution: Chemical Peculiarity, Mass Loss, and Explosion: Proceedings of the 108th Colloquium of the International Astronomical Union, Held at the University of Tokyo, Japan, 1-4 September 1987 [Lecture Notes in Physics 305]

By K. Nomoto, ed.

Berlin: Springer-Verlag, 1988. First Edition, First Printing. Cloth. Near fine/none as issued. About fine, first edition, first printing. Brown, mustard and white cloth boards. Binding is sturdy, square and tight. Previous owner's name stamped neatly on top edge, otherwise as new. No dust jacket as issued. Illustrated with formulas, b/w photos, graphs, and drawings. xiv, 468 [2] pp. Octavo, 6 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches tall. This collection of papers describes the evolutionary path of stars of various masses. Observational data and theoretical modeling of the stellar atmosphere and the stellar interior and their interaction are presented, covering chemical peculiarities, mass loss, and explosion, all of which are strongly related to the hydrodynamic evolution of the interior. In particular the supernova SN 1987 A is discussed for the first time in detail, including the underground neutrino observations and the detection of X-rays from the supernova. The study of its progenitor, a B 3 supergiant, was related to the topics of chemical peculiarities and mass loss mechanisms and atmospheric models. The intended readers are professional astronomers and astrophysicists, as well as physicists. The book will also be an important source of information for graduate students. ---Publisher's web site Main sequence abundances: Observational aspects, Jun Jugaku; Main sequence abundances, mass loss and meridional circulation, Georges Michaud; Observed lithium abundances as a test of stellar internal structure, Sylvie Vauclair; On the distribution of the lithium abundance in normal late-type giants Liia Hänni; Abundances in cool evolved stars, Catherine A.

Supernova Shells and Their Birth Events: Proceedings of a Workshop Held at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, March 7-11, 1988 [Lecture Notes in Physics 316]

By Wolfgang Kundt, ed.

Berlin: Springer-Verlag, 1988. First Edition, First Printing. Cloth. Near fine/none as issued. About fine, first edition, first printing. Brown, mustard and white cloth boards. Binding is sturdy, square and tight. Previous owner's name stamped neatly on top edge, otherwise as new. No dust jacket as issued. Illustrated with formulas, b/w photos, graphs, and drawings. xiii, 252 [4] pp. Octavo, 6 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches tall. For a better understanding of supernova explosions the contributors to this volume provide researchers and graduate students in astrophysics with a broad spectrum of alternatives. The confrontation of different theories in one volume should prompt further exploration of the driving piston for the explosions and deeper understanding of the experimental data. Properties of supernova shells are discussed, such as their kinematics, ages, sizes, temperatures, spectra, polarizations, energetics and morphologies. Special attention is given to a few shells of extreme age, viz. G 70.68+1.20, Kepler's SN, and CTB 80, as well as to their statistics. ---Publisher's web site Interpretation of Supernova Shells W.

Berlin: Springer-Verlag, 1988. First Edition, First Printing. Cloth. Very good +/none as issued. A very good plus, first edition, first printing. Brown, mustard and white cloth boards. Previous owner's name stamped neatly on top edge, mildly cocked. Text clean and bright. No dust jacket as issued. Illustrated with formulas, b/w photos, graphs, and drawings. [xi], 438 [2] pp. Octavo, 6 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches tall. This volume summarizes recent developments in our understanding of active galactic nuclei, including quasars, seyfert galaxies and radio galaxies. The predominant emphasis is put on observational results with information from essentially all wave bands, but important theoretical results are also presented. Among the contributions are discussions of the different types of active galaxies, the nature of the central engine, the wiggly structure of radio jets, the dynamics of the gas in jets, the study of millimeter and extreme ultraviolet regions, and a discussion of the observed continuum of the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The intended readers are professional astronomers and astrophysicists as well as graduate students in this field of research. - Publisher's web site Emission-line spectra and the nature of active galactic nuclei, Donald E.
