About this Item

First Edition. 8vo. Grey Printed Paper Wraps, as Issued. First Edition. G-M 5320 for Novy & Knapp; G-M 725.1 for Mandel & Levene; G-M 1894 for Meltzer and Auer; G-M 4683 for Flexner. A collection of scientific papers (the actual offprints) from many journals published in 1906Ð07 by Members of The Rockefeller Institute. Outstanding contributions by such luminaries as Simon Flexner, Hideyo Noguchi, Frederick Novy, P. A. Levene, Meltzer & Auer, Eugene Opie and others. It includes an extensive paper by Novy & Knapp on relapsing fever, caused by the spirillum Burgdorfia obermeieri and related organisms, which includes immunological studies; Mandel and Levene report on their early work on the chemical composition of nucleic acids, with quantitative analysis of the purine and pyrimidine bases composing the nucleotides, work which led to the tetranucleotide hypothesis and ultimately to the structure of nucleic acids, DNA and RNA, and to the genetic code; Meltzer & Auer (2 papers) on the physiology of Magnesium and especially its effects upon nerves; and Simon Flexner's earliest report on experimental meningitis caused by Diplococcus intracellularis and its treatment by experimentally produced antisera. The full report of this research, later in 1907, became the G-M citation 4683. Additionally there is a long report on the history of the just-opened Rockefeller Institute, with speeches (Wiliam Henry Welch, Nicholas Murray Butler and Charles W. Eliot, among others), photographs, architectural plans, etc. Truly a loaded volume. Ex Libris. Chips from rear cover. Modest library marks. Crack in spine (between individual offprints). Else, Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 8427
