Description: Portrait of Jenner by Anderloni, engraving of medal on title and 4 fine folding hand coloured plates by Anderloni. 223pp; a nice copy, uncut in contemporary mottled boards. Milano dalla tipografia Mussi, 1809.

Comments: Sacco introduced smallpox innoculation into Italy in 1799 and reported his results in the present book. It was very influential in promoting the general acceptance of Jennerian vaccination both in Italy and the rest of Europe through translations into French and German. It is particularly valuable for the statistics Sacco compiled from the million and a half vaccinations which he oversaw. Waller 8375.

You've got yourself one happy customer at this end, folks. I've been looking for another copy of "West of the Indus" for nearly twenty years (I know, it's such a cultural wasteland out here in the provinces), and I never expected to find one with a dust jacket. I am amazed. Thank you so much. I've enjoyed many books over the years, but this one has always been one of my favorites. Now if I can just figure out how to share it with my friends without losing it... - Paul B.
