First Edition, journal issue. Garrison-Morton 1000.1. The final and most complete statement of Bernard's first major physiological discovery-the role of the pancreas in digestion, particularly its function in the breakdown and absorption of fats. Bernard was the first to demonstrate that pancreatic juice acted upon fats by a saponification process; i.e., the breakdown of fats into fatty acids and glycerine. A very small number of copies of Bernard's Memoire were published in book form the same year. DSB. Grmek 163. Olmsted & Olmsted, Bernard, pp. 54-59.
