Very rare offprint of ''Nature'' from 1953, containing the two groundbreaking articles announcing the discovery of DNA, here signed by co-author Francis Crick, who won the Nobel Prize in 1962 for what's considered the most important scientific discovery of the 20th century. London: MacMillan and Co., 1953. Collectible in its own right, this offprint representing the first separate edition of the 25 April 1953 ''Nature'' articles, is further unique as twice-signed by Francis Crick: first at the conclusion of the article ''Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids: A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid'' on page 738, and then again at the beginning of the article ''Genetical Implications of the Structure of Deoxyribonucleic Acid'', which contains a diagram of the DNA double helix, on page 964. Book measures 7.25'' x 10'', containing all the ''Nature'' articles published from January-June 1953, including others by Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin. Bound in red boards with gilt stamp of Boston Public Library on front board. Light shelf wear, overall very good to near fine condition. Scarce.
