The Double Helix: A Personal Account of the Discovery of the Structure of DNA.

Watson, James D.; (Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins)

New York: Atheneum, 1968. First edition of Watson's ground breaking work regarding the discovery of DNA for which the author, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins were awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1962. Signed by all three laureates on the title page, James D. Watson, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins. Octavo, original blue cloth, with numerous diagrams and photographic illustrations. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Jeanyee Wong. Foreword by Sir Lawrence Bragg. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. We have never seen another example signed by all three contributors; exceptionally rare. "Science seldom proceeds in the straightforward logical manner imagined by outsiders," writes James Watson in The Double Helix, his account of his codiscovery (along with Francis Crick) of the structure of DNA. Watson and Crick won Nobel Prizes for their work, and their names are memorized by biology students around the world. But as in all of history, the real story behind the deceptively simple outcome was messy, intense, and sometimes truly hilarious. To preserve the "real" story for the world, James Watson attempted to record his first impressions as soon after the events of 1951-1953 as possible, with all their unpleasant realities and "spirit of adventure" intact.

"He has described admirably how it feels to have that frightening and beautiful experience of making a great scientific discovery" (Richard Feynman, winner of the 1965 Nobel Prize for Physics).

The Double Helix.

WATSON, James D.

London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson,, 1968. Octavo. Original purple cloth, gilt titles and double helix pattern to spine, top edge pink. With the dust jacket. 19 half-tone illustrations and 11 diagrams. A bright, fresh, fine copy in the very good jacket with a small tear at the head of the upper inner front panel fold and three short tears on the rear panel. First UK edition, first impression, signed by the author on the title-page. Watson's personal account of the discovery of the structure of DNA was originally published in the US in the same year. The Double Helix is one of the most important first-hand accounts of the practice of science during the 20th century, chronicling not only the wonder and beauty of a major breakthrough, but also the politics and turf wars of researchers battling for scientific glory.

"Part diary, part lab notebook, James Watson's breezy account of how he and Francis Crick managed to decipher the structure of DNA changed biology and our view of biologists forever. Decades before reality TV pulled the curtain from every occupation from crab fishing to swamp logging, Watson chronicled not only his and Crick's tedious and bumpy scientific journey in discovering the molecular shape of DNA (which laid the foundation for the genetic revolution) but also exposed the posturing and ego bruising that make science interesting - and scientists human." -Alice Park..

The Double Helix; A Peronal Account of the Discovery of the Structure of DNA

Watson, James D.

London: Readers Union / Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1969. Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good. Octavo size, 143 pp., signed by James D. Watson. The desire to understand the chemical makeup of living things was in full force during the 1950s, epitomised in the work of scientists James D. Watson (b. 1928) and Francis Crick (1916-2004), credited with the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA, for which Watson and Crick, along with Maurice Wilkins, jointly won the Nobel Prize in 1962; this work is detailed in Watson's memoir "The Double Helix". The memoir was unusual at the time, as personal accounts of scientific discoveries were uncommon; the memoir sparked controversy over Watson's willingness to use other scientists' data, possibly without their knowledge, to form his conclusions, and for his somewhat disparaging attitude toward Dr Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958), whose work on X-ray diffraction was vital to the discovery of the shape of DNA. This volume was published one year after the first edition of Watson's book, with this copy signed by him on the title page; the book today is still considered one of the seminal writings about a critical scientific discovery. ___DESCRIPTION: Full black cloth, gilt lettering on the spine, severl black-and-white illustrations and diagrams of DNA strands and molecules, six facsimile pages of a letter to Max Delbürck (1906-1981), a biophysicist influential on Watson and Crick's work, regarding the double helix at the back of the book; octavo size (8.25" by 5"), pagination: [i-iv] v-viii 1-128 [129-135], signed by James D. Watson on the title page. In a blue paper dust jacket with title and abstracted illustration of a double helix inside a white oval on the front panel, white and black lettering on the spine, same abstracted illustration on the rear panel, an ad for Everymans Library on the front flap, and an order form on the rear flap; the dust jacket is unclipped with the original price of 35s on the front flap. ___CONDITION: Volume is near fine, with clean boards, straight corners without rubbing, a strong, square text block with solid hinges, the interior is clean and bright, and entirely free of prior owner markings; spine is very slightly cocked, and pages 7 and 8 have a light stain to the fore-edge margins. The dust jacket is very good, unclipped, clean overall with minor soiling, slight overall edge wear, spine is lightly sunned, and there is light toning to the interior. ___POSTAGE:  International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

New York: Simon & Schuster, 1996. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers, illustrated. Signed by James Watson on the title page. In fine condition. Foreword by Sir Lawrence Bragg. "Science seldom proceeds in the straightforward logical manner imagined by outsiders," writes James Watson in The Double Helix, his account of his codiscovery (along with Francis Crick) of the structure of DNA. Watson and Crick won Nobel Prizes for their work, and their names are memorized by biology students around the world. But as in all of history, the real story behind the deceptively simple outcome was messy, intense, and sometimes truly hilarious. To preserve the "real" story for the world, James Watson attempted to record his first impressions as soon after the events of 1951-1953 as possible, with all their unpleasant realities and "spirit of adventure" intact.
