The volumes of Pasteur's collected works previously published are Dissymétrie moléculaire, Fermentations et générations dites spontanées, and Etudes sur le vinaigre et sur le vin. The present volume contains all of Pasteur's work on silkworm disease, not only the two volumes published in 1870 (La pébrine et la flacherie, notes et documents), but also a large number of other communications and documents concerning silkworm disease. Three more volumes are to appear: Etudes sur la bière, Maladies virulents, virus vaccins et prophylasie de la sage, and Melanges scientifiques et littéraires. These different titles, in the order in which they are given, mark in chronological sequence the major investigations of Pasteur, culminating in his epochal studies of infectious diseases. The work on pébrine is of especial significance because it turned Pasteur's attention and interest on the fundamental problems of infection. This is not the place to attempt a review of the subject
