Original antique medical print


Vanity Fair medical portrait of Louis Pasteur. Louis Pasteur (1822 - 1895) was a French chemist and microbiologist born in Dole. He is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and preventions of disease. His discoveries reduced mortality from puerperal fever, and he created the first vaccine for rabies. His experiments supported the germ theory of disease. He was best known to the general public for inventing a method to stop milk and wine from causing sickness, a process that came to be called pasteurization. He is regarded as one of the three main founders of microbiology, together with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch. Accompanied by a photocopy of the descriptive text. Faint foxing spot in right hand margin (would easily be mounted out).
