Only connect the prose and the passion ...

Microbe hunters by Paul de Kruif, the classic pop science book that inspired a zillion careers in the life sciences. This second edition of the German translation dates from 1928 (inherited from my grandparents).
It has 65 illustrations, of which I picked the portrait of Robert Koch more or less at random.

Well, ahem, I did have a third photo, but tumblr doesn’t let me upload that one.
