About this Item

8vo. xii, 160 pp. Frontis. port. of Osborn, plates index. Burgundy cloth, gilt-stamped cover and spine titles, dust-jacket; jacket worn and stained with some tape repair. Very good. Dr. George R. Minot's copy, with the Author's presentation inscription: "To Dr. George R. Minot; In memory of Charles Sedgwick Minot & Dr. George R. Minot- with the best wishes of Henry Fairfield Osborn, December 18th 1930, Congratulations on the well deserved award." Minot was awarded the 1934 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine, which he shared with William P. Murphy and George H. Whipple. The reference to the "award" in the inscription was not to the Noble Prize which came to Minot in 1934. Also in the inscription, the use of the phrase "In memory of," certainly applied to Charles Sedgwick Minot who died in 1914, but not to George since he died in 1955. Osborn himself died in 1935. Two earlier editions of the bibliography had been published, the first for the period 1877-1910 and the second for the period 1911-1918. Both were compiled by Harriet Ernestine Ripley and continued thereafter by Janette May Lucas. This bibliography is identified in the text as the third edition, but it is the first edition of the complete bibliography. A special copy in every respect. Bookseller Inventory # Z1731
