comment $p_n(x)=p_{n-1}(x)+p_{n-1}^{\prime}(x)$, then all the roots of $p_k(x)$ are real
@Edwin I believe $p_0(x)$ is just some arbitrary polynomial, and is taken here to be of degree $m$.

comment counterexample for ill posedness of the laplace equation
"Laplace's equation" would be most accurate.

comment Differentiable Path of Operators and their Inverses
I'd suggest to consult one of the classic texts on operator theory for the relevant theory: Dunford and Schwarz vol. 1, or Kato's Perturbation Theory for Linear Operators, say. I think I recall that the calculation that ${\mathcal P}$ is a projection involves reducing a double integral to a single one. Basically, the point is that the contour $\Gamma$ encircles all the spectrum of $A(t)$ except zero.

comment Proving Taylor's Theorem by integrating n times?
Perhaps this answer to a related question will help. In short: Apply the mean value argument to the n-fold integral first to pull out $f^{(n)}(\xi)$, then evaluate the n-fold integral with constant integrand.

comment Modification of Gronwall's Lemma
The proof of Lemma 1.3.3 in [201] looks messed up. Perhaps it's left over from some earlier draft of the book. It's not too difficult though to derive the result by an approach similar to the proof of Lemma 1.3.1: Let $\Phi$ be the right hand side and differentiate, etc.

comment Continuity of the derivative
I appreciate that I didn't answer the question you asked, and I should have mentioned it. A point I'd like to stress, though, is that proving the Cauchy integral formula without continuity of the derivative does not need to seem nearly as subtle and complicated as the roundabout approach taken in standard books suggests. In particular, it does not require a 2D integration theory, which arguably makes this approach considerably less complicated than one invoking Green's theorem.

comment Expressing a holomorphic function as an infinite sum
I'd try to prove a) the R.H.S. is $2\pi$-periodic and b) stays bounded as $y\to\infty$ with $z=x+iy$, $|x|\le\pi$.
