Description

Benjamin Waterhouse's first pamphlet on the subject of his inoculation work appeared in September, 1800, just a few weeks after the vaccination of the Waterhouse children and servants in the summer. The pamphlet describes his early promotion of Jenner's work and a short appendix advertises Waterhouse's readiness to vaccinate others, based on the success of the tests on his household.

This copy is inscribed to Dr. John Jeffries from Benjamin Waterhouse.
