English copper plate mezzotint of "Edward Jenner M.D." (1749-1823), an English physician who perfected the cure for smallpox through vaccination. The print was engraved by R. M. Meadows ("R. M. Meadows sculp."), based on painting by J. Robinson ("J. Robinson pinxit"). Dr. Stephen West Williams (1790-1855) named his only surviving son, Edward Jenner Williams (1823-1881) after Dr. Jenner, who was a great medical personality of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The print in purple, brown, white, green, and blue shows a portrait of a seated, grey-haired, smooth-shaven man wearing a white cravat, brown and blue coat, and brown pants, with a paper and quill in front of him and cows, house and trees in the background. The frame is modern.
