        The Structure of sodium thymonucleate fibres, parts 1, 2 & 3. , signed by Raymond Gosling

      Copenhagen, 1955. Franklin, Rosalind (1920-58) & Gosling, R. G. (1) The structure of sodium thymonucleate fibres. I. The influence of water content. Offprint from Acta Crystallographica 6 (1953). 673-677pp. (2) The structure of sodium thymonucleate fibres. II. The cylindrically symmetrical Patterson function. Offprint from Acta Crystallographica 6 (1953). 678-685pp. (3) The structure of sodium thymonucleate fibres. III. The three-dimensional Patterson function. Offprint from Acta Crystallographica 8 (1955). Together 3 offprints. 268 x 202 mm. Without wrappers as issued. Fine copies, each one signed by R. G. Gosling on the first page. First Separate Editions. In January 1951, after having learned X-ray crystallography techniques in Paris, Rosalind Franklin arrived at the MRC Biophysics Unit at King's College, London, to pursue research on the structure of DNA. The head of the MRC, John T. Randall, arranged for Gosling, a graduate student previously associated with Maurice Wilkins, to work with her. At the same time, James Watson and Francis Crick were pursuing their own DNA investigations at the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge, which culminated in their famous double-helix model of DNA structure (based in part on information derived from one of Franklin's x-ray photographs). In March 1953, before they were aware of the Watson-Crick model, Franklin and Gosling submitted two papers on DNA structure for publication in Acta Crystallographica. "The first describes the observations on the types of X-ray diagram given by highly orientated specimens of sodium DNA at different humidities. Two forms of DNA fibres, named A and B, are described and the conditions are given for producing them. In this paper are reproduced the beautiful X-ray photographs which were used in the subsequent analysis of both forms. The accompanying paper describes quantitative measures on the X-ray pattern of the A form. . . ." (Klug, "Rosalind Franklin" [1968], p. 808). Two years later Franklin and Gosling submitted their final paper in the series, "contain[ing] an interpretation of the three-dimensional Patterson function of the A structure in which the orientation of the helical molecules in the unit cell of the crystal is analysed and a detailed picture of the arrangement of the phosphate groups is proposed." (Klug, p. 808).

        Photo Album]: Several Botany Trips by the Harvard Botany Club [hand-lettered title page]: Photographs Volume II. Summer 1954 concluded to [1955]"

      1955 - Three-ring bound loose leaf binder. 153 mounted black-and-white photographs, most approximately 3.5" x 5", mostly fine, with a small group (perhaps ten or fewer) of commercial images of park locations. Virtually all are captioned. Internal evidence seems to indicate that American botanist, author, and photographer Sherwin Carlquist (recipient of the 1993 Asa Gray Award) was most likely the compiler of this album. The first sections consists of well-composed images of a botany trip in the West, primarily in California (Morro Bay, Carmel, Bolinas Bay, Lagunitas), Oregon (Pistol River, Brandon, Harris Beach State Park, and many other locations), and Washington (Pacific Beach, Olympia National Forest, Sekiu, Kalalock Beach, Friday Harbor). These are followed by images of trips to Long Island (only a few images), followed by images of several trips with the Harvard Botany Club to Mt. Washington (several trips), Plum Island, Horn Pond Mt., and a trip to Illinois. With few exceptions the images are devoted largely to Botany and geology. The later Harvard Botany Club's trips are well-captioned and identify several participants notable in scientific (not surprisingly botany) circles such as Robert Dressler and A.Q. Dickson. Curiously we have found mention of a second volume that was sold on Ebay (it annoys us mightily that they have been separated), but this is as we found it, and is at least interesting and can clearly stand alone.

His archive of nearly 80,000 images is one of the most detailed and intimate records of the black urban experience known today.
