Illustrated New York 2006 Cloth First Edition New in New jacket 8vo. First edition. 8vo. Cloth binding, 176 pp. Illustrated throughout in color and black and white. Today it is
an accepted fact that genes govern heredity in all living things and that DNA transmits genes between generations. All of this began with the work of one man, an Augustinian friar who gave a series of lectures in 1865 that described his exhaustive work hybridizing peas and explained his theories of genetics. Here the novelist and biologist who gave us The Fall and Mendel's Dwarf presents an engaging biography of Gregor Mendel that also depicts his work, the scientific community of his day, and his legacy, including DNA research and the darker study of eugenics. The book is also handsomely illustrated, with archival and contemporary photos and scientific and botanical drawings. New in new dust jacket.
