The Lives of a Cell: Notes of a Biology Watcher
NY, Viking, (1974). His first collection of essays, winner of two National Book Awards (for Arts and Letters and for Science). Signed by the author. Foxing to top edge, small spot to foredge; about near fine in a very good, price-clipped and dusty dust jacket with light wear to the edges and folds and a couple of stray pen marks on the rear panel. A surprise bestseller, which went into at least 10 printings in its first year of publication: first printings are scarce, and signed firsts especially so. [#035681] $400

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
