The missing reel : the untold story of the lost inventor of moving pictures by Christopher Rawlence( Book )

21 editions published between 1980 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French inventor Louis Aime Augustin Le Prince vanished while on a train journey from Dijon to Paris in 1890; before his disappearance--he was then presumed dead--he had been on the brink of going public with his one-lens camera and projector. British filmmaker Rawlence here cites evidence left by his widow in her memoirs that Thomas Edison was linked to Le Prince's death. This absorbing, technically and legally overloaded whodunit jumps back and forth between past and present, including suspenseful accounts of the author's research and interviews with Le Prince's descendants on several continents. Rawlence discusses the cut-throat politics of the infant film industry and shady U.S. Patent Office dealings, along with what he considers Edison's dubious business practices. No smoking gun is decisively uncovered, however, and readers are left to draw their own conclusions about Le Prince's fate

2 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guam disease, found only on that small Pacific island, causes symptoms strikingly similar to Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's, and Alzheimer's diseases, but it is not hereditary. In this program, neurologist/author Oliver Sacks travels to Guam in order to investigate this lethal illness. Prior studies done by epidemiologists, toxicologists, anthropologists, and other neurologists have raised suspicions over the water supply, the soil, the local fish, and even the nuts of indigenous cycads. However, as scientists continue to study and hypothesize, incidence of this disease that has plagued the islanders for a century is dropping. If a cure is to be discovered-providing valuable insights into other neurological disorders-it will have to be soon, or Guam disease may disappear on its own

Cuo ba tai tai dang mao zi de ren by Oliver Sacks( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his most extraordinary book, "one of the great clinical writers of the 20th century" (The New York Times) recounts the case histories of patients lost in the bizarre, apparently inescapable world of neurological disorders. Oliver Sacks's The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat tells the stories of individuals afflicted with fantastic perceptual and intellectual aberrations: patients who have lost their memories and with them the greater part of their pasts; who are no longer able to recognize people and common objects; who are stricken with violent tics and grimaces or who shout involuntary obscenities; whose limbs have become alien; who have been dismissed as retarded yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents. If inconceivably strange, these brilliant tales remain, in Dr. Sacks's splendid and sympathetic telling, deeply human. They are studies of life struggling against incredible adversity, and they enable us to enter the world of the neurologically impaired, to imagine with our hearts what it must be to live and feel as they do. A great healer, Sacks never loses sight of medicine's ultimate responsibility: "the suffering, afflicted, fighting human subject."
