PMM 404; Garrison Morton 1048. FIRST EDITION of Hopkins' landmark paper. Hopkins was already convinced that certain 'accesory factors' were essential to the health and growth of animals, and on returning to work he discovered that rats who declined and died on what appeared adequate feeding throve when small quantities of milk were added to their diet. In 1912, in the paper cited, he made the pronouncement upon which all subsequent vitamin research is based: that 'accessory factors' are essential to nutrition. Entire journal volumes are rarely seen on the market. We can trace only one copy sold at auction in the past 20 years (Sotheby's sale N07732, 2001, lot 92, sold USD 10,200). - Visit our website for additional images and information.
