Printed in Cheltenham in 1806, it is inscribed on the title page Mr. Murray from his Friend the Author.

The recipient was probably Charles Murray (1768-1847), British solicitor and secretary of the Royal Jennerian Society (1803-1809) and member of the National Vaccine Establishment.

Bound together with other Jenner editions, the estimate is $2000-3000.
