PASTEUR, L. (Louis)
Though Pasteur was made most famous by his invention of methods of keeping milk and wine from spoiling and his contribution to the creation of artificial vaccines, he had other discoveries to his credit. This particular work examines a disease affecting silkworms, and it is credited with saving the French silk industry. Garrison & Morton 2481.
