Easton Press, Norwalk, CT. 1999. The Lives of a Cell: Notes of a Biology Watcher by Lewis Thomas. Leather bound collector's edition.

Condition: Very Fine. A wonderful bright clean copy free of any markings, writings, or stamps inside the book. See photos. Sharp corners that have not been bumped. Tight binding, most likely an unread book.


About the book:

Elegant, suggestive, and clarifying, Lewis Thomas's profoundly humane vision explores the world around us and examines the complex interdependence of all things. Extending beyond the usual limitations of biological science and into a vast and wondrous world of hidden relationships, this provocative book explores in personal, poetic essays to topics such as computers, germs, language, music, death, insects, and medicine. Lewis Thomas writes, "Once you have become permanently startled, as I am, by the realization that we are a social species, you tend to keep an eye out for the pieces of evidence that this is, by and large, good for us."
