Faint offsetting to endsheets from dust jacket flaps; fine in a very lightly chipped dust jacket.. 8vo, 252pp; blue cloth with printed spine label. A polymath Austrian biologist who made a great splash in the scientific community with his work supposedly verifying Lamarck's notion of the genetic inheritance of acquired characteristics, Kammerer was undone by accusations that he had apparently faked his results to get the data he wanted. In the midst of the controversy, he committed suicide in 1926.

Pencil notes on endpaper; near fine in a chipped dust jacket that is complete despite being detached by tear running the length of the front hinge.. 8vo, 414pp, illustrated; maroon cloth.

(Los Angeles): Community Relations Committee for Kefauver for President, 1956. Evenly toned. Broadside, on one side of a single leaf, approx. 8-1/2 X 11 inches. Bulletin board poster from Kefauver's second campaign for President, reproducing an article from the New York Herald Tribune citing criticism of the Tennessee senator by former Gov. Millard F. Caldwell of Florida, who called Kefauver "a far-Left liberal and a sycophant for the Negro vote and the union vote." Kefauver's candidacies drew great support from primary voters, but he was defeated for the Democratic nomination twice by Illinois senator Adlai E. Stevenson. At the 1956 Democratic convention, Stevenson had the delegates select his running mate, rather than make the choice himself, and they chose Kefauver.

Draft of the bill co-sponsored by the Senators from West Virginia and Florida, calling for the establishment of a federal Office of War Mobilization, aimed at preventing the kind of corporate profiteering that had occured in the build-up to American entry into the First World War. A key component of the Kilgore-Pepper bill was ensuring that the members of the War Mobilization office would be federal employees, and not working for defense contractors. The bill did not make it into law, and it was pre-empted by President Roosevelt who established the office by executive order.
