LOW, R. BRUCE - Reports and Papers on Bubonic Plague, ... progress and diffusion of plague throughout the world, 1898-1901 ... measures employed in different countries for repression of this disease.

London, HMSO 1902. Quarto, modern wrapper with printed title; xii,466pp, ten colour maps, some folding, numerous tables. Title page with some creases. ¶ Historians of the plague have been busy in recent years and in browsing a few of them it becomes clear that Low's report is essential. The best admit that Low is the only source for some aspects of the flurry of epidemics that rushed round the world and the less than best copied Low wholesale only pausing to point out where they think he was wrong. Australians can congratulate themselves that they weren't the only people to immediately fly into a yellow peril panic and blame the whole thing on the Chinese or some other coloured race. So did the South Africans and Americans in San Francisco and Honolulu. Elsewhere it was more pragmatic to deny that there was plague.
