Period marbled paper wrappers with printed paper title label to front wrapper.. General wear, with old dampstain to textblock upper left quadrant.. Period presentation inscription [to Dr J Wheelock from Henry Colman].. Very Good.. "Waterhouse was a highly complex and controversial individual. He was feisty yet charming, easily hurt yet resilient, intellectually curious yet dogmatic, a facile and stimulating writer yet also verbose and pompous. In addition to being the leading early champion of vaccination in America, he was the most important popularizer of science in New England from the 1780s to the early 1800s, the leading link between Boston and the British medical community during the quarter century after the revolutionary war, and an important literary figure." [ANBO].
