[ no place but London ]: [ no publisher but Nature ] [ no date but 2003 ]. Later printing. [2], 737-741, [2] pages. 7 x 9 3/4 inches. Stapled wrappers. With images of Crick, Wilkins, Watson, and Franklin on front cover. Near Fine. Wraps. [27479]


A re-printing on the 50th edition of the first separate edition of these three major papers, originally printed in St. Albans by Fisher, Knight & Co., 1953. Here supplemented by a two new pieces of content. A one page commentary about the papers by the editor of Nature, Philip Campbell highlighting the history and "sober style" of the papers. And following the reprinted papers, a two page article "Yesterday's research - today's legacy" by Professor Sir George Radda, Chief Executive of the Medical Research Council highlighting the impact today.

This collection reprint was produced in some quantity, and is a great way for today's public to read the original papers, with a little bit of perspective from the publisher and a major research sponsor. Original copies of the collected papers run into five figures these days, signed copies of individual papers much higher. Seminal work impossible to undervalue when looking at key 21st century advancements in medicine.
