1925 BAKTERIOLOGIE FUR DIE MOLKEREISCHUL / BACTERIOLOGY FOR DAIRY SCHOOLS **AUTHOR PRESENTATION COPY** German Book
BAKTERIOLOGIE FUR DIE MOLKEREISCHULE (BACTERIOLOGY for DAIRY SCHOOLS), by Professor Dr. W. Henneberg (Wilhelm Hermann Henneberg), of Kiel, Germany.
PRESENTATION COPY from the AUTHOR to FRAULEIN TAMM. Inscribed at the top of the front cover: "Fräulein Tamm / Überreicht vom Verfasser" (Miss Tamm / Presented by the Author).
Interestingly, Fraulein Tamm (Herta Irene Tamm) studied dairy bacteriology under Dr. Henneberg in Kiel, then later emigrated to Los Angeles where her first job was as a bacteriologist at a local dairy. There is a nice obituary on Herta Irene Mock (née Tamm) on the SF Gate website.
Published by Molkerei-Zeitung, Hildeshiem. TEXT IN GERMAN.
Booklet, paper covers, side stapled, 6x8.5 inches (14x27 cm), 56 pages. Laid in are two pamphlets on cultures and bacteriology of Yoghurt and Kefir. One is 2 pages, the other 4 pages.
VERY GOOD condition booklet, just lightly used and still tight, bright, clean and clear. The two laid in pamphlets have been folded, are toned, and both have a bit of handwriting at the top in German which I cannot translate.
About Wilhelm Hermann Henneberg (from Wikipedia, roughly translated from the German by Google):
******Wilhelm Hermann Henneberg, b.1871 d.1936,
was a German bacteriologist and first director of the Bacteriological Institute at the Prussian Experimental and Research Institute of Dairy.
From 1897 he was employed in the vinegar department at the Institute of Fermentation in Berlin. From 1906 he headed the bacteriological department of the technical scientific laboratory of the Institute of Fermentation. In 1922 he was appointed to Kiel to head the Bacteriological Institute of the Prussian Experimental and Research Institute of Dairy Farming. In the eleven years as a university professor in Kiel, he supervised more than 80 dissertations and wrote several textbooks on the bacteriology of milk. Henneberg initiated the founding of the Federation of Technical Bacteriologists .
For bacteriological diagnostics, Henneberg invented new methods of investigation, such as the Chinese blue water agar developed especially for dairy farming, the spring stick culture and the cover glass agar method.
In his last years he devoted himself to the study of the saprophyte flora of the intestine and the human intestinal flora, in particular their conversion by the consumption of dairy products such as yoghurt and acidophilus milk.******
