Food and Drug Administration 1961 - COLLECTED PAPERS of the FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. VOLUME I : SOCIETY MEETING ABSTRACTS 1930-1961. Collected, Transcribed, and Collated by Dr. Paul L. Day and Miss Rena Padway, Office of the Scientific Director. Published by the FDA, 1961. Hardcovers, brown cloth covered boards, gilt titling on the spine, 7x10 inches, viii +260 pages plus a number of "a" pages (i.e. 61, 61a) that were numbered as such if an abstract was more than 1 page long. Pages printed on one side only. An interesting book of abstracts of papers written by Scientists working at the FDA in the period 1930-1961. Includes abstracts for all sorts of scientific inquiries of interest to the FDA, including studies on Vitamins, DDT, DDD, Fish Oils, Whale Pituitaries, Cosmetics, Skin Absorption, Insulin, Insecticides, Food Toxicities, Sweeteners, Fat Storage, Shellfish Poisons, Additives, Nitrates In Cattle Rumen, and many more. COPY OF THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION, with an FDA blindstamp on the title page, an ink stamp stating: "Scientific Director / Jan 12 1962 / FDA Received DHEW (Dept. of Health, Education and Welfare)" on the front free endpaper, and a DHEW label glued onto the title page. Ex the FDA Pharmacology Library. The front free endpaper has the handwritten statement: "Division of Pharmacology Library", there is a shelving number written on the spine, and there is a card pocket on the rear pastedown. VERY GOOD Condition: Ex FDA Pharmacology Library, as noted above. Ex lib aside, just lightly used, a bit of light blue staining to the front page edges (page edges of the closed book), otherwise still tight, bright, and clean. A solid, presentable copy. RARE. I cannot find another copy online, the OCLC does not list a copy, and I have never seen another copy. It is possible this is a one off produced for the FDA, or a very limited printing. The pages are printed on one side only and many of the pages have a mimeograph or carbon copy type look to them, there is a chart on the very last page that is hand pasted on and a DHEW label on the title page that is pasted on. Plus, this copy was deaccessioned from the FDA DHEW Pharmacology Library, where, if it was a one off or very limited printing, is where you would expect it to be found. I do not know for certain, of course, if this is a one off or very limited printing; all I know is that, as of this writing, I cannot locate another copy and have never seen another copy. An important resource for anyone interested in early FDA research. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
