The book deals with ‘the mode of invasion of the epidemic and its treatment, an account of the sanitary arrangements adopted at Oxford, and suggestions for the future. Acland was fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, physician to the RadclifFe Infirmary, Radcliffe librarian, and Dr. Lee’s reader in anatomy at the University.” (Clary)
