Description:
Whether to admire more the man or his method, the life or the work, I leave for the readers of this well-told story to decide. Among the researches that have made the name of Pasteur a household word in the civilised world, three are of the first importance -- a knowledge of the true nature of the processes in fermentation -- a knowledge of the chief maladies which have scourged man and animals -- a knowledge of the measures by which either the body may be protected against these diseases, or the poison neutralised when once within the body.
