2 Bertalanffy, Ludwig Von Problems of Life . an Evaluation of Modern Biological and Scientific Thought
New York Harper & Brothers 1960 Softcover Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
[8], 226 pages, wrappers, very good. From Wikipedia: "Karl Ludwig von Bertalanffy (1901-1972) was an Austrian-born biologist known as one of the founders of general systems theory (GST). GST is an interdisciplinary practice that describes systems with interacting components, applicable to biology, cybernetics, and other fields. Bertalanffy proposed that the classical laws of thermodynamics applied to closed systems, but not necessarily to "open systems," such as living things. His mathematical model of an organism's growth over time, published in 1934, is still in use today. ~ Today, Bertalanffy is considered to be a founder and one of the principal authors of the interdisciplinary school of thought known as general systems theory. According to Weckowicz (1989) , he "occupies an important position in the intellectual history of the twentieth century. His contributions went beyond biology, and extended into cybernetics, education, history, philosophy, psychiatry, psychology and sociology. Some of his admirers even believe that this theory will one day provide a conceptual framework for all these disciplines". Spending most of his life in semi-obscurity, Ludwig von Bertalanffy may well be the least known intellectual titan of the twentieth century."

Washington Government Printing Office 1909 Disbound Good 
37 pages, paper, removed from bound volume of miscellaneous documents. United States. Dept. Of Agriculture. Bureau of Plant Industry. Bulletin 148. "This inventory of seeds and plants imported is the sixteenth in a series which was begun in 1898. It contains only the Introductions of only three months, and as the three months happened to fall at a time when our agricultural explorer Mr. Frank N. Meyer was in this country preparing for further exploration and Prof. N. E. Hansen was on his way to Central Asia or preparing there to collect the seeds of wild alfalfas on the steppes, the number of plants imported is small. It represents, therefore, only those things which have been secured by correspondence with our agents and friends in different parts of the world. Through a correspondent in Chile, Mr. Jose D. Husbands, an unusual collection of seventy-two potato varieties was secured, among which are wild types from the archipelago of Chiloe and the adjoining mainland of Chile. " FR8-2; 37 pages
