Description

Physician John Freind planned this extensive early work on medical history—the first in the English language—while imprisoned for treason in the Tower of London. The volume appears to have been presented to the first Boston Medical Library by Dr. John Warren, and it also bears the signature of Zabdiel Boylston, the pioneer of smallpox inoculation in Boston, on its title-page.
