x, 308 pp. Original cloth. Very Good+, in very good+ dust jacket (unclipped). Inscribed: 'To William von Eggers Doering,/With much/appreciation for/your help - best/regards/Lester'. 'We are indebted to a number of people for help in our work. William von Eggers Doering and Norman E. Zinberg read the manuscript and offered critical suggestions' (Preface, p. x). William von Eggers Doering (1917-2011) 'was a Professor Emeritus at Harvard University and the former Chair of its Chemistry Department. Prior to joining the Faculty at Harvard, he was a member of the Chemistry Faculties of Columbia University (1942 1952) and Yale (1952 1968). He is known in the field of organic chemistry for his work on quinine total synthesis with Robert Burns Woodward. Some people think he should have been awarded the Nobel Prize for this work as Woodward was. Having published his first scientific paper in 1939 and his last in 2008, he holds the rare distinction of having authored scholarly articles in eight different decades. In 1990, he received the Robert A. Welch Award in Chemistry and in 1989, he received the 'James Flack Norris Award in Physical Organic Chemistry' of the American Chemical Society. Some of his discoveries include the structure elucidation of the tropylium cation, the discovery of dichlorocarbene, bullvalene and fulvalene and the discovery of the mechanism of the Baeyer Villiger oxidation' (Wikipedia).
