Caption: Title page of Edward Jenner's book An Inquiry into the causes and effects of the variolae vaccinae, a disease discovered in some of the western counties of England, particularly Gloucestershire, and known by the name of the cow pox, published in 1798. Jenner was an English physician born in 1749 & died in 1823. Jenner's discovery that cowpox innoculaton gave an immunity to the dreaded smallpox introduced the idea of vaccination against disease into medicine. Prior to Jenner, innoculaton was known, but it was Jenner's research and experimentation that put the idea on a scientific basis.
