Margins trimmed touching a few page headings, but very good. Library stamp on volume title. First Edition, journal issue of the three key DNA papers, plus Watson and Crick's "Genetical implications of the structure of deoxyribonucleic acid," their second DNA paper, in which they proposed the molecule's means of replication. This discovery has been called as significant or possibly even more significant than the original discovery of the structure of DNA. The Franklin and Gosling paper "reports Franklin's discovery of the existence of DNA in two forms, and conditions for readily and rapidly changing from one to the other. Its phosphates were on the outside." (Maddox, Rosalind Franklin: The Dark Lady of DNA, p. 195) The Watson-Crick model of the double helix was in large part derived from her work. 256.3, 7138 (Watson & Crick papers); 6847 (Franklin & Gosling paper).
