British physician.

Jenner is chiefly remembered for having discovered the difference between typhus and typhoid fever, the result of work begun in 1847 at the London Fever Hospital.

He published his landmark book "On the Identity or Non-Identity of Typhoid and Typhus Fever" in 1850, and it is on this that his reputation as a pathologist rests.

Jenner was also important as the physician of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

He treated both Albert and the Prince of Wales when they fell ill with typhoid fever.

This is a fine ink signature and six lines of text, cut from the bottom of a letter, on a piece measuring 4.5" x 2.75". In good condition.
