Radiations And Living Cells: An Introduction to Radiation Biology, in Which the Action of Penetrating Radiations on the Living Cell Is Described, With Special Reference to the Effect on Cell Division in Human Tissues - F. G. [Frederick Gordon] Spear

Chapman & Hall, 1953, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with heaving fading at the spine and many small nicks and chips, heavy creasing and some loss to the head of the lower panel. Price Clipped. Spine of the book faded, as are the margins of both the boards. Leans. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight.

Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the cover: “This book is a first attempt to give, from the experimental angle, a concise account of the effect of penetrating radiation on normal and diseased tissues in man. It is written for those who are interested in the ever widening frontier between physics and biology, particularly that part of the frontier concerned with medical physics and radiation biology. It collects information at present widely scattered over specialist literature, much of which is not easily accessible to the ordinary reader.
