Description

Engraving made in 1806 by Bond after Abbott showing a portrait of William Woodville (1752-1805) with a vignette below by Woolnoth after a drawing by Shepherd of the Inoculation Hospital at St Pancras, Thornton. Whilst working as physician to smallpox and inoculation hospitals at St Pancras, Woodville adopted and advocated the theory of vaccination as introduced by Edward Jenner (1749-1823). Works discusing the practice of vaccination include 'Medical Botany' (1790-94).
