Books signed by the Soviet Nobel laureates are very rare. First edition.

The author of this book was a physicist, chemist, and a leader of the Soviet nuclear weapons program Nikolai Semyonov (1896-1986), who was awarded the 1956 Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Sir Cyril Hinshelwood for their research into the mechanism of chemical reactions. He became the first Russian Nobel laureate in Chemistry and remains the only Nobel Prize winner in chemistry in the motherland of Dmitri Mendeleev. Semyonov was also the first Soviet citizen to receive a Nobel Prize.
The book was signed to Semyonov's friend and colleague, an electrochemist, and member of the Russian Academy of Science Alexander Frumkin (1895-1976), who was regarded as a founding father of modern theoretical electrochemistry.
