Two issues. Original wrappers. Near Fine. The book was published by Atheneum on Feb. 26, 1968. 'The 1968 publication of James Watson's two-part thriller, The Double Helix, in The Atlantic Monthly left both the scientific and literary worlds atwitter. I still have my tattered copies, bought on my salary as a genetics graduate student' (Anne Fausto-Sterling, 'Gender and Science in the DNA Story', Science 08 Nov 2002: Vol. 298, Issue 5596, pp. 1177-1178). 'Watson's book, called 'Molecular Biology of the Gene,' was my bible in my freshman year . . . One of the really amazing experiences I had in my sophomore year was (reading) Watson's autobiography, 'The Double Helix.' When it came out in 1967, it was serialized in the Atlantic Monthly, and I remember running to the library to pick up copies of the magazine to read it all night. Not that I ever expected to make discoveries like that or to act like that but that one could actually plumb the depths of nature with intellect and intuition and work was a revelation' (Lasker Award winner Randy Schekman, 'Randy Schekman: A passion for yeast', Berkeley Web site).
