DSB II, 24/34: 'Bernard's most impressive discoveries in the field of digestion proper concern the functions of the pancreas, especially the importance of pancreatic juice in the digestion and absorption of fats.': G&M 1000.1: 'The most beautifully illustrated of all Bernard's writings which summed up the results of his work on the role of the pancreas in digestion.': Waller, 964: Lily Library, Notable medical books, comp. 209: 'The second course discussed the mechanical and chemical aspects of digestion, with emphasis on the chemistry and digestive role of saliva and the properties and function of the pancreas.': Comp. Norman coll., 202: Olmsted, Claude Bernard, pp. 87-8: Norman/Grollier, 100 books famous in medicine, 67b: 'Claude Bernard is regarded as the most important contributor to experimental physiology in the 19th c. ...In 1846 Bernard began studying the pancreatic juices and their role in digestion, in 1849 he published a paper ...(on) the role of pancreatic juices in the first stage of metabolism ...In 1856 he published his most complete statement on the function of the pancreas.': One of Bernard's most important contributions to scientific medicine. ad 2) DSB vol. VI, pp. 103 - 104: '... the greatest master of celestial mechanics since Laplace.. [quote from Simon Newcomb, 1903] from the BSB:] 'During this time [50 years at Seeburg, near Gotha] Hansen's contributions to astronomy were so numerous and enriched so many branches of that field that he was considered among the foremost astronomers of his time. He was above all a theoretician, concerned with the representation of the motion of the moon and the planets in the sky in terms of Newtonian celestial mechanics. ...': Pannekoek, i.l.c. p. 355: 'Nor could we think of developing the perturbations, once and for all, in a general algebraic way as Laplace had done for the seven major planets. ... Hansen in later years, in 1856, indicated an approximate method and applied it to some of the first discovered asteroids.':
