Download and read online The Alteration in PDF and EPUB In Kingsley Amis’s virtuoso foray into virtual history it is 1976 but the modern world is a medieval relic, frozen in intellectual and spiritual time ever since Martin Luther was promoted to pope back in the sixteenth century. Stephen the Third, the king of England, has just died, and Mass (Mozart’s second requiem) is about to be sung to lay him to rest. In the choir is our hero, Hubert Anvil, an extremely ordinary ten-year-old boy with a faultless voice. In the audience is a select group of experts whose job is to determine whether that faultless voice should be preserved by performing a certain operation. Art, after all, is worth any sacrifice. How Hubert realizes what lies in store for him and how he deals with the whirlpool of piety, menace, terror, and passion that he soon finds himself in are the subject of a classic piece of counterfactual fiction equal to Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle. The Alteration won the John W. Campbell Memorial Award for best science-fiction novel in 1976.

Download and read online The Alteration in PDF and EPUB Hubert Anvil is a 10 year old boy blessed with the voice of an angel. The Church hierarchy decrees that Hubert should be turned into a castrato - an alteration that could bring Hubert fame and fortune, but would also cut him off from an adult world he is curious to discover. In a dystopian world where Martin Luther never reformed and where the Holy Office's power is absolute, where will Hubert turn if he decides to defy their wishes?

Download and read online A Treatise on the Alteration of Money in PDF and EPUB In this treatise we find an insightful analysis concerning how monetary debasement and inflation increase prices, which proceeds to illustrate how such increases do not affect everyone equally-in effect, causing a revolution in fortunes. In a parallel argument, Mariana explains how government, if given control of other forms of private property, would also debase the values of those forms and use them according to its own interests.

Download and read online THE ALTERATION OF ENDOTOXIN BY POSTHEPARIN PLASMA AND ITS PURIFIED FRACTIONS 2 RELATIONSHIP OF THE ENDOTOXIN DETOXIFYING ACTIVITY OF EUGLOBULIN FROM POSTHEPARIN PLASMA TO LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE in PDF and EPUB Fractionation of the delipidized euglobulin from guinea pig postheparin plasma on DEAE-cellulose resulted in one protein peak in the effluent and two to three protein peaks following an NaCl-gradient. Both endotoxin detoxifying action and lipoprotein lipase activity were found in the fractions prior to the application of the NaCl-gradient, if the fractions were collected in heparin. Without added heparin, neither of the two activities was obtained. Associated with both detoxifying and lipase activities was the release of unesterified fatty acids and the endotoxin-clearing reaction. Heating the postheparin plasma euglobulin fraction either had no effect or partially inactivated the endotoxin-detoxifying factor, but destroyed lipoprotein lipase activity. Both unesterified fatty acid release from the endotoxin-albumin-euglobulin mixtures and the endotoxin-clearing reaction were destroyed by heat.
