Rosalind Franklin, whose X-ray photographs of DNA were crucial to Watson and Crick&#39;s discovery of the molecule&#39;s double helix structure in 1953, began researching the molecular structure of selected plant viruses after moving from King&#39;s College to Birkbeck College in mid-1953. She was aided in this work by Aaron Klug, who would later win the 1982 Nobel Prize in chemistry for developing crystallographic electron microscopy and for elucidating the structure of biologically important nucleic acid-protein complexes. The two began investigating the structure of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), making several important discoveries regarding the arrangement of the virus&#39;s protein subunits and RNA strand; later in their researches Klug and Franklin agreed to divide the work, with Franklin taking on TMV and other rod-shaped plant viruses, and Klug concentrating on spherical plant viruses such as turnip yellow mosaic virus (TYMV). Klug continued his virus researches after Franklin&#39;s death, first at Birkbeck and later at Cambridge University&#39;s MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, which he joined in 1962.</p><p>The present papers report "the early stages of an X-ray diffraction study of crystals of turnip yellow mosaic virus (TYMV).

        How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

      New York: Random House, 1957. First edition, first printing with all issue points: Cat in the Hat on back cover of book with 14 titles (up to now) listed on the rear flap and a list of 13 books printed at the end of the book. Dust jacket price reads 250/250. Inscribed twice by Dr. Seuss to the same recipient, "For Juanito with Best Wishes- Dr. Seuss." Dr. Seuss has signed on the verso of the front free endpaper and the verson of the half title page. Illustrated in black and red. Original illustrated glossy paper boards, pictorial endpapers. Very good with some rubbing to the boards as usual, expert restoration to a tear in the rear endpaper in a very good dust jacket. Clearly the Grinch has been the most memorable Christmas villain to undergo redemption since Ebenezer Scrooge. To some degree, Ted identified with the Grinch&#133; When asked why he wrote the book, Dr. Seuss replied, &#39;I was brushing my teeth on the morning of the 26th of last December when I noted a very Grinch-ish countenance in the mirror. It was Seuss! So I wrote the story about my sour friend, the Grinch, to see if I could rediscover something about Christmas that obviously I&#39;d lost.&#39; It was no coincidence that, when the book appeared in 1957, the Grinch complained, &#39;For fifty-three years I&#39;ve put up with it now&#133;&#39; Ted, of course, was born in 1904&#133; After The Cat in the Hat and The Grinch, Ted&#39;s reputation grew exponentially" (Cohen, 329-30).

        On The Road

      New York: Viking Press, 1957.. New York: Viking Press, 1957. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Very good in the original dust jacket which has had some profesional restoration. What makes this copy interesting, is that it is from Columbia University Library Lending Service. It was taken out between Sep 11, 57 and ended Dec 3, 1957. The slip on the reverse is the only library mark. Kerouac came to Columbia on a football scholarship. In reality, though, he had been recruited by more football-friendly Boston College, and chose Columbia for its New York literary connections instead. He turned fully to writing after a broken leg in 1940, his first year"(New York Times). He enjoyed Professors Mark Van Doren and Raymond Weaver, and got an A in Van Doren&#39;s Shakespeare class. The raucous, exuberant, often wildly funny account of a journey through America and Mexico, Jack Kerouac&#39;s On the Road instantly defined a generation on its publication in 1957: it was, in the words of a New York Times reviewer, "the clearest and most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as &#39;beat.&#39;" Written in the mode of ecstatic improvisation that Allen Ginsberg described as "spontaneous bop prosody," Kerouac&#39;s novel remains electrifying in its thirst for experience and its defiant rebuke of American conformity. In his portrayal of the fervent relationship between the writer Sal Paradise and his outrageous, exasperating, and inimitable friend Dean Moriarty, Kerouac created one of the great friendships in American literature; and his rendering of the cities and highways and wildernesses that his characters restlessly explore are a hallucinatory travelogue of a nation he both mourns and celebrates. "On the Road has become a classic of the Beat Movement with its stream-of-consciousness depiction of the rejection of mainstream American values set in a physical and metaphysical journey across America" (Book in America, 136).

      Collins/The Crime Club, 1957. Collins/The Crime Club, 1957. 1st edition. Hardcover. Bright red boards with black lettering. Slight offsetting on the endpapers, with a surname on the fep. The pages have some small, very occasional spots, slightly more so on the first and last few leaves; the front and lower text blocks are slightly spotted. The dustjacket is not price-clipped, has a few tiny rubs, and a crease along the lower edge, but is generally near fine - and quite scarce. Overall, a nice copy of a late crime novel by the author (aka John Rhode).
