The Double Helix, James D. Watson
First edition, first printing of Watson's autobiographical account of the discovery of the structure of DNA.
New York: Atheneum, 1968. A near fine copy in a near fine, unclipped dust jacket. Binding is tight, sturdy and square, a trace of sunning to edges. Owner's name and date to half-title, else internally clean and bright. Jacket shows a touch of shelfwear and sunning to spine, protected in archival mylar. A very presentable copy.
