About this work
Only a fragment of the first leaf remains: some margins frayed. In typescript with some MS. additions and corrections, with numerous mounted extracts from the printed paper, which was published at Cambridge in the ‘Journal of Hygiene,’ 1906, pp. 425-482. The fragment of the first leaf is inscribed ‘Reports of Plague Investigation in India’, and this item may possibly be a draft for a new edition, of which no record has been found.
16 ll. folio. 26 x 20 cm.
From the Cantlie Papers.
