Some microbe papers from the Royal Society archives

As many be aware, the Royal Society has made their entire archive of papers available for free.  This has included some classics and has attracted a lot of attention (e.g., papers by Darwin and Franklin and others).  Well, here are some of microbial interest

First I did a search for the term bacteria and searched by date (with oldest first): and found a few of interest.
