Comments: The first memoir on lactic fermentation that marked the birth of bacteriology. Pasteur's isolation of the organisms which cause milk to sour launched his campaign against the chemical theory of fermentation and "expressed the basic approach and point of view which informed all of his subsequent work on fermentation." DSB X, 362. The volume also contains his first note on alcoholic fermentation, (pp. 1032-36). Horblit 82; GM 2472.

Many thanks for your help... Over the years I have spent many happy hours at the Argosy - mostly among your old maps. Whenever we have taken a trip, we have bought an old map of the country or area to remind us of where we've been. We have a whole wall of maps from the Argosy. As well as a number of your small prints of areas in the USA. They make wonderful presents for friends and family too - also some of your older books on special subjects. So you can see I am a big fan of the Argosy! - Katherine M.
