A beautiful first edition/first printing in Very Fine condition in alike dustjacket, SIGNED by author and Nobel Prize Laureate James D. Watson on the title page.
This memoir picks up where Watson's book The Double Helix finishes - in 1953 just after the announcement of the discovery of the structure of DNA, an historic achievement that won both Watson and Francis Crick the Nobel Prize. Watson's diary-like entries show him adjusting to his new-found fame, experimenting with the role of RNA in biology and falling in love. Included are copies of hand-written letters from Russian theoretician George Gamow.
