Since the dawn of the era of molecular biology, hemoglobin has been subjected to more scrutiny than any other protein. Its privacy has been intruded upon to the extent that its atoms are all familiar, many of their individual duties known, and their origins under the collaborative control of specific ribonucleic acid structures understood in astonishing, albeit incomplete, detail.
Bunn, Forget, and Ranney can each lay claim to major contributions to the saga of hemoglobin. Their well-organized, comprehensive, and superbly illustrated work deserves to be recognized as the best standard of reference on the subject as of the year 1977.
