First Edition. Entire volume offered (includes nos. 769-773). 541 pp. Buckram, perforation stamp to title page. Else Very Good. Archibald Vivian Hill: Nobel Prize, Physiology or Medicine, 1922, 'for his discovery relating to the production of heat in the muscle.' This volume also includes: C. M[aurice]. Yonge (F.R.S.), 'On the Nature and Permeability of Chitin. I.--The Chitin Lining the Foregut of Decapod Crustacea and the Function of the Tegumental Glands' (pp. 298-329); R. Snow, 'Experiments on Growth and Inhibition. Part III--Inhibition and Growth Promotion' (86-105); E[bbe]. C[urtis]. Hoff (1906-1985), 'Central Nerve Terminals in the Mammalian Spinal Cord and their Examination by Experimental Degeneration' (175-188); R. Willstatter, E. Waldschmidt-Leitz, A. Harden, D. Keilin, J. B. S. Haldane, J. H. Quastel, N. U. Meldrum, F. J. W. Roughton, 'Discussion on Recent Advances in the Study of Enzymes and their Action' (280-297); Walter Stiles & William Leach, 'Researches on Plant Respiration. I.--The Course of Respiration of Lathyrus odoratus during Germination of the Seed and the Early Development of the Seedling' (338-355); H. Munro Fox, 'The Oxygen Affinity of Chlorocruorin' (356-363); J. D. Gillett & V. B. Wigglesworth, 'The Climbing Organ of an Insect, Rhodnius prolixus (Hemiptera; Reduviidae)' (364-376); John Mellanby (F.R.S.), 'Secretin' (429-436); A. G. R. Whitehouse, W. Hancock & J. S. Haldane, 'The Osmotic Passage of Water and Gases through the Human Skin' (412-429); J. W. Cook, 'The Production of Cancer by Pure Hydrocarbons.--Part II' (485-496). 'In 1932, Haldane . . . presented cogent criticisms of the view championed by Haber and Willstätter (1931) that enzymes acted by initiating chain reactions, primarily arguing that whereas enzymatic reaction velocities were observed to be proportional to enzyme concentration, the chain theory implied that they would vary as the square root of that concentration. In 1964, barely six months before his death, reflecting back on this early work, after noting how Hopkins convinced him that enzymes were central to biochemistry, he would claim, 'My father, J. S. Haldane, had shown about 1910 that though haemoglobin is a large molecule, its reactions can be predicted from the laws known to hold for small molecules. I had only to bring the ideas of these two great men together to produce an account of enzyme action which, though sketchy, seems to have been largely correct (1965, vi)' (Sahotra Sarkar, 'Haldane as Biochemist: The Cambridge Decade, 1923-1932', in Sarkar, ed., The Founders of Evolutionary Genetics: A Centenary Appraisal, Dordrecht, etc.: Kluwer, 1992, pp. 67-8). 'Whitehouse, Hancock and Haldane have shown that water passing through the human skin by osmosis or diffusion increases directly as the temperature increases, until sweating commences, when the saturated surface stops the passage of the so-called osmotic water' (W. M. REGA & S. B. FREEBORN, 'THE EFFECT OF FLIES AND FLY SPRAYS ON CERTAIN PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESSES OF THE DAIRY COW', J. Dairy SC. Ig: 11-28, 1935). Bookseller Inventory # 17167
