Spider, Egg, and Microcosm
NY, Knopf, 1955. White provides a foreword to this book about three Russian-born scientists: an arachnologist, an embryologist, and a microbiologist. Three pages, beginning: "The egg! The spider! The protozoan! Promise of life, web of life, life invisible to the naked eye..." Mild offsetting to rear endpages; else fine in a near fine dust jacket with trace fading to the red on the spine. Not an uncommon book, but difficult to find in nice condition. [#029620] $100
