RARE LIMITED EDITION FACSIMILE BOUND PAMPHLET ON SMALLPOX EPIDEMIC IN CHARLSTON, SC, IN 1738. 8 1/2 inches tall hardcover, 49 pages, gray cloth boards with light surface wear and spotting, overall very good facsimile of an original pamphlet in the British Museum, published in June 1938 (only 125 copies printed). FOREWORD: 'The smallpox epidemic of 1738 in Charleston, South Carolina gave rise to a controversy between two of the local practitioners, Thomas Dale and James Kilpatrick. In the fashion of the day they aired their medical quarrel by publishing pamphlets defending their ideas and practices, and in this way made a beginning of medical literature in South Carolina. While these products contributed little to medical progress, they are of interest to students of medicine in America, and for this reason the one known survivor of the group, a pamphlet belonging to the British Museum, has been reproduced in facsimile.'
Title: A Full and Clear Reply to Doct. Thomas Dale, Wherein the real Impropriety of Blistering with Cantharides in the first Fever of the Small-Pox is plainly demonstrated, With some diverting Remarks on the Doctor's great Consistence, and exquisite Attainments in Physick and Philology
