  • Edition: First Edition signed and inscribed to another famous person
  • Book condition: Near Fine
  • Quantity available: 1
A very nice copy of "When MIT was "Boston Tech" 1861-1916 published in 1954 by Samuel Cate Prescott with dust cover. Signed by Prescott to: "Specially inscribed for my long-time friend, Professor Maynard A. Joslyn with the high regards of Samuel C. Prescott." What makes this incription so interesting is that Josyln was the father of revolutionizing the California wine making industry starting in 1933. He helped shape the industry to become what it is today by working on such things as 'juice making'...A rare publication for MIT wine drinkers and collectors! Good luck bidding!   Maynard Alexander Joslyn (July 7, 1904 - November 28, 1984) was a Russian-born, American food scientist who involved in the rebirth of the American wine industry in California following the repeal of Prohibition in 1933. Joslyn was also involved in the development of analytical chemistry as it applied to food, leading to the advancement of food chemistry as a scientific discipline.
