Foreword For more than three thousand years, smallpox was a major scourge of mankind, spreading across the world as new centres of population became established and grew in size. Because of its high fatality rate, it was universally feared; in the towns and cities of Asia and Europe where records were kept, it caused on average 10% of all deaths each year. As early as the tenth century, Chinese and Indian sages had discovered a method that provided some protection against this terrible scourge, albeit one which often resulted in serious illness and some loss of life. This was the inoculation of smallpox virus from scabs-variolation-a practice that was taken up in a number of countries but seldom widely applied.
