With a handwritten and signed inscription from Max [Delbrück] to Aage Bohr - 'with greetings'. Included is also a photocopy of a student's reading list for Delbrück's course, with a handwritten note to Aage Bohr: 'Here is a partial list of books I encouraged my students to read during my course. I doubt you will find leisure to do much reading this coming year . Cordially, Max'. * * The draft of 'A Phycisist Looks at Biology' has a long inscription with pencil to Niels Bohr on the first page: 'We have had two very nice evenings with Aage [Bohr] and his girl here in New York. I hope you will not be unhappy when you see this MS. It will be published eventually in Conn. Acad. journal, but can still be changed. It was a great pleasure to talk to Aage [Bohr] again and to see him happy, which he has every reason to be. / M.D.'** As a young visitor in Copenhagen, Niels Bohr's interests in the relation between physics and biology, and the possible limitations for the physical description of living organisms, inspired Delbrück to become a biologist. For his biological research he received the 1969 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
