WALD, George. LOT OF SCIENTIFIC OFFPRINTS OF NOBEL PRIZE WINNER 1967. 81 offprints, 1934-1974, from various scientific and medical journals, including Nature, Science, American Journal of Ophthalmology, Journal of General Physiology, Journal of Ophthalmology Society of America, as well as a few textbook chapters and conference proceedings. All in fine or near fine condition, some with a few external notations (Wald's, most likely). Some of the papers are collaborations with one or more co-authors, including Ruth Hubbard and T. Yoshizawa. Primarily concerning the molecular biology of vision; the topics include rhodopsin and iodopsin in humans and animals, Vitamin A deficiency and night blindness, color blindness, visual pigments in human and animal retinas, violet receptors in human vision, the chemistry of rod vision, and more.
