Catalog of an exhibit in honor of the sesquicentennial of the birth of Louis Pasteur

A catalog for the National Library of Medicine’s exhibition on Louis Pasteur includes brief introductions for display cases along with lists of “manuscripts, books, journals, pamphlets, offprints, and original pictures from the National Library of Medicine collections,” which were on display in the exhibition. The introduction and annotation text for the cases and displayed items offer information on Pasteur’s major contributions to science, including work with fermentation, germ theory, crystallography, and rabies; and identifies some of his influences, proponents, and opponents.
