For the NIH Campus Yeast Interest Group I have organized an English
translation of the first publication of fission yeast by P. Lindner in
1893. I added the original German text, since it is typeset in an old
German font and difficult to read; for example, one character can mean
either 's' or 'f.' The article contains one illustration.
