Scientific Papers

(Physiology, Medicine, Surgery, Geology)

The Oath of Hippocrates
Journeys in Diverse Places, by Ambroise Paré
On the Motion of the Heart and Blood in Animals, by William Harvey
The Three Original Publications on Vaccination Against Smallpox, by Edward Jenner
The Contagiousness of Puerperal Fever, by Oliver Wendell Holmes
On the Antiseptic Principle of the Practice of Surgery, by Joseph Lister
Scientific Papers, by Louis Pasteur
Scientific Papers, by Charles Lyell


A great little collection representing the height of scientific thought from over one hundred years ago. There are figures referenced in the Pasteur sections but I have not found good copies of them. (Truth be known, I haven't found any copies of the figures.) I have left the references in the text and will add the figures if and when I do find them.

For those of you keeping score, 28 done, 21 to go, for a completion percentage of 57.14.
