About this Item

With 61 plates (1 folding), 14 photographs, and numerous text illustrations. Last volume contains the contents and index, other sections include lengthy bibliographies. Original printed wrappers, small chips lower edges of spine, but generally a very good set. First edition in the original parts of a work by a noteworthy geneticist, published by the leading genetic research laboratory of the twentieth-century. The six sections form Part IV of the Treasury of Human Inheritance series. The author treats Huntington's chorea, types of muscular atrophy and dystrophy, hereditary ataxia, and dystrophia myotonica. It includes numerous detailed plates of genetic pedigrees and several photographs. Julia Bell (1879-1979), an English geneticist, was best known for her 1943 discovery, along with J. Purdon Martin, of a single-gene cause of autism known as Martin-Bell syndrome. She was a member of the Medical Research Council at the Galton Laboratory at University College, London, the first institute in the world to study human genetics as a science. The Treasury of Human Inheritance was published by the department from 1909 to 1958 and edited by acclaimed professors such as Ronald Aylmer Fisher (1890-1962), a distinguished researcher in the field of eugenics who focused on identifying human blood groups, and Karl Pearson (1857-1936), the founder of twentieth-century statistics.
