3. The Life-History of the Micro-organisms associated with Variola and Vaccinia. An Abstract of Results obtained from a Study of Small-Pox and Vaccination in the Surgical Laboratory of the University of Edinburgh

  • J. B. Buist (a1)


“Go to the quality of the active principle; abstract it from the material, and contemplate it by itself. Then determine the time; how long, at furthest, this thing, of this particular quality, can naturally subsist.”—Marc. Aurel., Book ix. sect. 25.
