(Bookplate on upper paste down 'Prof.Dr.Ir. G. van Iterson Junior'). First edition. DSB vol. XIV, p. 96 'In addition to his experimental work in plant physiology, de Vries made extensive studies of the theories and literature on heredity and variations in plants. About 1890 he abruptly abandoned the study of plant physiology and devoted himself exclusively to heredity and variation. This period in his career began with his 'Intracellular Pangenesis' in which he reviewed critically the work of Spencer, Darwin, Nägeli and Weissmann, and proposed his own theory that "pangenes" were the carriers of hereditary traits. One of the most important books in the history of genetics, it attracted little attention at the time.'
