About this Item: 1943. First edition. 8vo., cloth. New York, Doubleday, Doran & Co.

Eve Curie came from a family of extraordinary brilliance, with 5 Nobel Prizes among them, her parents being Marie and Pierre Curie. She joined the Free French Forces of De Gaulle, and from 1941 to 1942 travelled widely in Africa, the Soviet Union and Asia as a war reporter, which resulted in this book. She was only a few times near the front line, but she gives much information on the business of war and its logistical problems, and pays attention to the effects of war on the civilian populations.

About this Item: Gallimard, Paris, 1938. First edition. Octavo, original wrappers. Inscribed by the author to publisher Nelson Doubleday, "To Nelson, Whose confidence in this book has been my first, my best encouragement." In very good condition. Marie Sklodowska Curie was the first woman scientist to receive worldwide acclaim and one of the greatest scientists of the twentieth century. Written by Curie's daughter, international activist Eve Curie, Madame Curie's biography chronicles her achievements in science, including her pioneering efforts in the study of radioactivity and her two Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry. It also provides insight into her personal life, from her childhood in Poland to her marriage to fellow scientist Pierre Curie, and finally her tragic death likely caused by long-term exposure to the radiation she was exposed to in her studies.
