About This Item

London: Picador, 2002. A Fine copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. The story of how one brave scientist unlocked the mystery of the most feared disease, a discovery made 100 years ago in Hong Kong, during an outbreak that threatened to decimate the island. A tense and frightening race was run in appalling conditions by two rival scientists : Alexandre Yersin - rigorous, solitary, cerebral - and the suave Kitasoto, unscrupulous, enigmatic, careless. Spiced with anecdotes, facts and chilling reconstructions, the author's investigations into plague in the modern world bring some disturbing facts to light. A1E. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
