About this Item: 1957. Langridge, Robert (1933- ); Seeds, W. E.; Wilson, H. R. (1929- ); Hooper, C. W.; Wilkins, Maurice (1916- ); and Hamilton, L. D. Molecular structure of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Offprint from J. Biophys. & Biochem. Cytology 3 (1957). 767-778pp. Illustrated. 254 x 177 mm. Without wrappers as issued. Slight wear along spine, otherwise a fine copy, signed by Wilson on the first page. First Separate Edition. Further studies on both the A and B configuration of the DNA molecule, the A configuration existing when relative humidity of the atmosphere surrounding a fiber consisting of a DNA salt is reduced from 90-85 percent to 75 percent, and the B configuration existing when the DNA molecule is bound to protein in cells. An IBM computer was used to process some of the data; Langridge, the lead author of this paper and Wilkins's doctoral student, was the first to apply a stored-program digital computer to the analysis of DNA structure (as recorded in Langridge's PhD. dissertation, published the same year as the present paper).

About this Item: 1955. Feughelman, M.; Langridge, Robert (1933-); Seeds, W. E.; Stokes, A. R.; Wilson, H. R. (1929- ); Hooper, C. W.; Wilkins, Maurice (1916- ) et al. Molecular structure of deoxyribose nucleic acid and nucleoprotein. Offprint from Nature 175 (1955). 10, [2]pp. Illustrated. 212 x 141 mm. Without wrappers as issued. Light browning but a fine copy, signed by Wilkins and Wilson on the first page. First Separate Edition. "Information about the structure of dexoyribose nucleoprotein has been scanty and it has been suggested that deoxyribose nucleic acid may not be closely combined with protein. This communication describes in a preliminary way x-ray diffraction and molecular model-building studies which show that a helical structure of deoxyribose nucleic acid involving the base-pairing of Watson and Crick can be used to explain very satisfactorily a large amount of observed data. It is also shown that deoxyribose nucleoprotein is definitely a compound of protein with nucleic acid" (p. 1). This is the first paper listed in Robert Langridge's select bibliography published in his UCSF internet page. Langridge, a doctoral student of Wilkins's, was the first to apply a stored-program digital computer to the analysis of DNA structure, as described in his PhD. thesis (1957). The present paper makes no mention of computer-assisted analysis. Seller Inventory # 38468

About this Item: Nature, 1953., No place:, 1953. Tall 8vo. (Articles): 737-738; 964-967 pp. Figs. (including the first appearance of the famous double helix image). (Whole issues): 709-758; 943-986 pp. Articles, figs., photos. Self-wraps; no. 4356 lacks covers, else fine. Later folding case, gilt stamped crushed morocco spine. INCLUDES TWO LOOSE CARDS SIGNED BY WATSON AND CRICK. With the 2nd paper signed in the text by GOSLING [see below]. Fine. Rare. FIRST EDITIONS. The key papers that describe DNA for the first time, and the original announcement of the discovery of the double helix structure. The importance of this paper "is conveyed in a single arrogant sentence, one of the most memorable in biology: 'It has not escaped our attention that the specific pairing we have postulated immediately suggests a possible copying mechanism for the genetic material⦠Although well received in the scientific community, the double helix had little impact on the public consciousness until the 1960s. Watson (b. 1928), Crick (1916 â" 2004), and Maurice Wilkins (1916 â" 2004) won the Nobel Prize in 1962, following publication of the "operon" model of the gene and the first cracks in the genetic code.'" â" Nathaniel Comfort [for NLM]. Also featured in issue no. 4356 are: WILKINS, Maurice H. F., A. R. STOKES, & H. R. WILSON. "Molecular Structure of Deoxypentose Nucleic Acids." & FRANKLIN, Rosalind E., & R. G. GOSLING. "Molecular Configuration in Sodium Thymonucleate." Also includes a separate index volume for Nature, vol. 171, Jan. 3, 1953-June 27, 1953. Tall 8vo. lxiv pp. Original printed wrappers; minor tape repair, else fine. Ownership rubber stamps on cover. Watson, Crick & Wilson were awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology for their vital discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material. This crucial publication represents a key moment in the history of science, and has been called "the single most important development in biology of the present century." This was the first publication of the ,now immortalized, double helix image. "It was a crucial contribution of Crick and Watson to perceive that the helix was a double one, with two strands coiling around each other." McGraw-Hill, Modern Men of Science, I, p.120. Wasson, Nobel Prize Winners; Grolier, 100 Books Famous in Medicine 99; Heirs of Hippocrates 2342; Garrison and Morton 256.3 & 256.4; McGraw-Hill, Modern Men of Science, I, p.120.

About this Item: 1953. The Double Helix The "Three-Paper" Offprint, Signed by Five of its Authors Watson, James D. (1928- ) & Crick, Francis H. C. (1916-2004). Molecular structure of nucleic acids. A structure for deoxyribose nucleic acid. With: Wilkins, Maurice (1916-2004); Stokes, A. R.; & Wilson, H. R. Molecular structure of deoxypentose nucleic acids. With: Franklin, Rosalind (1920-58) and Gosling, R. G. Molecular configuration in sodium thymonucleate. Together three papers in a single offprint from Nature 171, no. 4356 (April 25, 1953). 8vo. 13, [1]pp. 211 x 141 mm. Without wrappers as issued. Signed by Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins on the first page, by H. R. Wilson and A. R. Stokes on p. 9, and by R. G. Gosling on the last page. Very good condition. First Editions. Watson and Crick's discovery of the double-helical structure of DNA is the most important medical and biological discovery of the twentieth century. Their paper first appeared in the scientific journal Nature, grouped, under the general title "The molecular structure of nucleic acids," with two other seminal papers on DNA: "Molecular structure of deoxypentose nucleic acids," by Maurice Wilkins, A. R. Stokes and H. R. Wilson; and Rosalind Franklin and Raymond Gosling's "Molecular configuration in sodium thymonucleate," which contains Franklin's famous x-ray photograph of DNA. The journal publication of the three papers was followed by this "three-paper"offprint for distribution by the various authors. In 1962, Watson, Crick and Wilkins shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Because Franklin had died in 1958 she could not share in the Nobel Prize. As much as the general educated public appreciates the discovery of the double helix today, when the papers were published in 1953 they were only understood and appreciated by the few workers in the field. Thus, Rosalind Franklin was never asked to sign a copy of this offprint, and none exist with her signature. This copy is signed by all participants except Franklin and Watson. Grolier, 100 Books Famous in Medicine, 99. Judson, Eighth Day of Creation, pp. 145-56. Dibner, Heralds of Science, 200. Seller Inventory # 43757
