An Inquiry into the Causes and Effects of the Variolae Vaccinae.
by JENNER, Edward (1749-1823).
Birmingham:: Classics of Medicine Library, 1978., 1978. 4to. [iv], iv, 75,  pp. Gilt decorated black leather, raised bands, all edges gilt. Fine. "Jenner established the fact that a "vaccination" or inoculation with vaccinia (cowpox) lymph matter protects against smallpox. He performed his first vaccination on May 14, 1796. The above work, describing 23 successful vaccinations, announced to the world one of the greatest triumphs in the history of medicine. Jennerian vaccination soon superseded the protective inoculation of material from human cases of small-pox, which had previously been in vogue." — Garrison and Morton 2529.3.
