About this Item

8vo. 349-356 pp. Printed wrappers. Rubber stamp on cover. A FINE GROUP. RARE. EXTENSIVE COLLECTION of early papers in genetics and evolution, including several papers co-authored by Theodosius Dobzhansky (1900-1975). Wright remains an important figure in the development of both evolution and the early days of genetics. He studied at Harvard under W. E. Castle, and spent many years arranging largely mathematical studies of the consequences of Mendelian heredity in populations. His contribution in this field is most significant and strongly represented by the featured offprints. "The wide range of factors brought to bear on the processes of change in populations, in Wright's balance theory, had a major effect not only on genetics but also on the unification of biology as a whole." Dunn, p. 212. Many of the papers bear the signature or rubber stamp of pioneer Caltech geneticist Norman Horowitz. WITH: WRIGHT. "The Roles of Mutation, Inbreeding, Crossbreeding, and Selection in Evolution." Offprint from: Proc. Sixth Int. Cong. of Genet., vol. 1, 1932. 8vo. 356-366 pp. Figs. Printed wrappers. WITH: WRIGHT. "Inbreeding and Recombination." Offprint from: Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci., vol. 19, no. 4, 1933. 8vo. 420-433 pp. Figs. Self-wraps. Full list available on request.
