Tiny publisher's sticker with original price obliterated. Very good plus condition. Description: iv, [4], 438, iv pages ; 18 cm. LCCN 28015373. OCLC Number: 37696636. "It is an interesting fact (Macfarlane, 1984) that 58 years elapsed between the publication of the studies of Burdon Sanderson and of Lister showing the antibacterial action of members of the genus Penicillium (Burdon Sanderson, 1871 ; Lister, 1871) and Fleming’s somewhat more celebrated paper (Fleming, 1929) to the same effect. Coincidentally enough, a similar period links this latter date with the present year. When seeking to account for Fleming’s apparent ignorance of the prior art, Macfarlane (1984) notes that Papacostas & Gate (1928) had just published a book which contained a 60 page section, headed ‘Antibiosis’, on the extensive subject of bacterial inhibition by moulds and by other bacteria, devoted to previously published observations on this phenomenon and with several hundred historical references!".

We also recorded the results obtained from the inoculation of eleven non-immune individuals by means of the bite of mosquitoes (culex fasciatus, Fabr. ) that had previously fed on the blood of patients sick with yellow fever. We were able to report two positive results, in which the attack of yellow fever followed the bite of a mosquito within the usual period of incubation of this disease. "
