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

24 editions published between 1980 and 1992 in 4 languages and held by 627 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

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 7 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
