Who shall survive? A new approach to the problem of human interrelations.

Washington, DC: Nervous and Mental Disease Publishing Co., 1934.

Moreno founded psychodrama, and pioneered group psychotherapy. Apart from its psychiatric and sociological significance, this work contained some of the earliest graphic depictions of social networks— data visualization methods later applied to numerous other disciplines. These images were later called sociograms. For a second edition published in Beacon, New York in 1953 Moreno revised the title to Who shall survive? foundations of sociometry, group psychotherapy and sociodrama.  Digital facsimile of the 1953 edition from asgpp.org at this link.

The life and education of Laura Dewey Bridgman, the deaf, dumb, and blind girl.

Boston, MA: Houghton Mifflin, 1878.

Biography of Laura Bridgman (1829-89, the first deaf-blind person ever to read, write, and converse in the finger alphabet. The book includes a signed holograph facsimile of Bridgman's widely circulated religious poem, "Holy Home." Bridgman transcribed it by folding paper over a tablet with grooved lines that contained letters of the alphabet— a method of lettering commonly used by the blind in this period. Bridgman also used this method for her signature, which appears in facsimile on the upper cover of the original cloth binding. Bridgman was a prize student of Samuel Gridley Howe (1801-76) director of the Perkins School for the Blind, at which Lamson was a teacher. The book consists mainly of extracts from Lamson's diary and the diaries of other teachers at Perkins. Digital facsimile from the Internet Archive at this link.

Horti medici Amstelodamensis rariorum tam orientalis, quam occidentalis Indiae, aliarumque peregrinarum plantarum magno studio ac labore, sumptibus civitatis Amstelodamensis, longâ annorum serie collectarum, descriptio et icones ad vivum æri incisæ. Opus posthumum, latinitate donatum, notisque & observationibus illustratum, à Frederico Ruyschio & Francisco Kiggelario. 2 vols.

Amsterdam: Pieter & Joan II Blaeu, 16971701.

In 1682 Jan Commelin helped establish the Amsterdam Botanical Garden, which introduced many new exotic plants to Europe, collected during the voyages of the Dutch East and West India Companies (VOC and WIC) in the East Indies, the Americas, Africa and the Far East. From these many new herbal remedies were created. Commelin's nephew Caspar Commelin took charge of the garden's foreign plants in 1696, while Frederik Ruysch took charge of the domestic plants. Jan Commelin prepared most of vol. 1, with special emphasis on plants of the East and West Indies. The set was posthumously published by Caspar, who also prepared most of vol. 2, with special emphasis on South African plants. Frederik Ruysch and Frans Kiggelaar provided editorial help and contributed additional notes.  This work includes 225  botanical  engravings after drawings by Jan Moninckx (ca. 1655/56–1714) and his daughter Maria (1673–1757).

The serum lipoprotein transport system in health, metabolic disorders, atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease.

Plasma, 2, 413-484, 1955.

Gofman, a nuclear and physical chemist as well as a physician, has been called the "father of clinical lipidology." He discovered and described the major classes of plasma lipoproteins: intermediate-density lipoproteins (IDL), low-density (LDL) and high-density lipoproteins (HDL), as well as VLD (very low density lipoprotein). He characterized LDL as carrier of "bad cholesterol" leading to atherosclerosis; however he did not find that higher levels of HDL have predictive value as "good cholesterol".  He drew attention to VLDL as risk factor, noting that diabetics are frequently marked by higher VLDL levels, and also noted the rise in atherogenic lipoproteins at much earlier age in men than women. This is a long review of research conducted by Gofman and his team from 1949 to 1955; it footnotes 31 previously published papers by Gofman and associates. With O. DeLalla, F. Glazier, M.K. Freeman, A.V. Nicholas, B. Strisower, and A. R. Tamplin. This paper was reprinted with an historical introduction by Richard J. Havel, in Journal of Clinical Lipidology I (2007) 104-141.

Low dose radiation and cancer.

IEEE Trans. on Nuclear Science, NS-17, Number 1, 1-9, 1970.

This paper, delivered at the 1969 Nuclear Science Symposium and Nuclear Power Systems Engineering Symposium, October, 1969, provided powerful scientific evidence that the then currently allowable radiation dose (Federal Radiation Council Guidelines) of 0.17 Rads per year from peaceful development of atomic energy should be reduced downward by a factor of 10, to a dose of less than 0.017 Rads per year for the allowable population exposure to ionizing radiation. Gofman and Tamplin argued that if everyone in the U.S. received 0.17 Rads per year, as the Atomic Energy Commission then planned to allow, that would lead to a minimum estimate of 16,000 additional cancer plus leukemia cases annually in the U.S.

The paper also enunciated 3 " general laws of radiation-induction of cancer in man" Over time these laws became widely accepted.

"Law I All forms of cancer, in all proability, can be increased by ionizing radiation, and the correct way to describe the phenomena is either in terms of the dose required to double the sponaneous incidence rate of each cancer or, alternatively, as the increase in incidence rate of each cancers per Rad of exposure.

"Law II  All forms of cancer show closely similar doubling doses and closely similar increases in incidence rate per Rad.

"Law III Youthful subjects require less radiation to increase the incidence rate by a specified faction than to adults."

Gofman and Tamplin published about 15 papers on these issues within a year. A less technical paper on the subject was "Radiation, cancer, and environmental health," Hospital Practice, 5, 91- 110. The two papers specifically cited here, and others by Gofman and Tamplin were influential in preventing an enormous growth in the number of nuclear reactors in the U.S. that the Atomic Energy Commission was then proposing: 1000 to 2000 nuclear reactors in the United States. Gofman was then director of the Division of Medical Physics (Berkeley) and director of the Bio-Medical Research Division at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory.

De venenis. Ed: Dominicus de Canali.

Venice: Bernardinus Rizus, Novariensis, for Johannes Dominicus de Nigro, 1492.

Compiled in the years, 1424-1426, from Greek, Arabic and Latin works on medicine and nature. "Although Ardoini quotes previous authors at great length, his work is no mere compilation, since he does not hesitate to disagree with such medical authorities as Peter of Abano and Gentile da Foligno, and refers to his own medical experience or observation of nature at Venice and to what fisherman or collectors of herbs have told him. He also seems to have known Arabic, and his occasional practice of giving the names of herbs in several Italian dialects is of some linguistic value" (Thorndike). ISTC No: ia00950000.
