Berkeley:: University of California Press, 1943., 1943. Large 8vo. xxxi, , 686,  pp. Plates. Goldenrod gilt-stamped cloth; soiled covers. Alameda county hospital library stamp. SIGNED by Herbert McLean Evans (frontispiece). First edition and seldom seen with Evans' signature. Evans "made a monumental contribution to the field of endocrinology through his studies of the physiology of reproduction. Many have remarked that the ultimate recognition of his achievements eluded him. Four of his lines of research and discovery were often mentioned as deserving of the Nobel Prize: (1) development of the vascular system, (2) elucidation of the estrous cycle in the rat, and the role of pituitary gonadotropin in reproduction, (3) discovery of growth hormone, and (4) discovery of and isolation of vitamin E. The first of these was entirely Evans' own work. The other three were collaborative efforts, but Evans' contribution to each was crucial." – UCSF, A History of UCSF.
