A great little collection representing the height of scientific thought from over one hundred years ago. There are figures referenced in the Pasteur sections but I have not found good copies of them. (Truth be known, I haven't found any copies of the figures.) I have left the references in the text and will add the figures if and when I do find them.

For those of you keeping score, 28 done, 21 to go, for a completion percentage of 57.14.
