Written by his friend, the physician John Baron (1786–1851), this laudatory biography of the 'father of immunology' (1749-1823) did much to enhance Jenner's reputation. The work covers Jenner's personal and professional life both before and after his development of the vaccine for smallpox, as well as touching on the vaccine's reception and use around the world.
