Important monographs on yeasts; the text is in German. Provenance: Dr Lance Walters (Chief Brewer at the South Australian Brewing Co. from 1944 to the 1980s), with his signature in the cloth-bound volumes, and his ink emphases and annotations in the first volume. The occasional company inkstamp is also present, along with a small typed paper label (signed by Walters) on one front cover: 'This book must not be removed from the laboratory without permission'. The SA Brewing Company's Thebarton brewery (and the laboratory) closed down in June 2021, and its demolition is almost complete (as at October 2022). [3 items].
