About this Item

Small 4to. 27 pp. Original blue wrappers. Housed in a modern quarter morocco clamshell box. Fine. FIRST EDITION. Containing "An outline of a plan to prevent the Spreading of the Plague, or other contagious Diseases, presented by the Board of Health, agreeably to the Instructions of His Majesty's most Honourable Privy Council." The article gives a brief account of how an outbreak of the plague was dealt with in Queen Elizabeth's time, and then presents the then-current practices to prevent the spread of an outbreak. "If the sick die, the Body should be wrapped in oiled Cloth, or tarred Cloth, and soon buried. It must be remembered, that everything that tends to secure those about the Sick from Infection, is of the greatest Importance, both by checking the Progress of the Disease, and by giving Confidence to those whose Busines [sic] it is to help and assist the Afflicted." [p. 8-9]. Bookseller Inventory # M10849
