The Yindou lue (Introduction to the Extraction of the Cowpox Vaccine, 1817) was edited by Qiu Xi, who was a businessman in Macau and an apprentice of Alexander Pearson, the author of Yingjiliguo Xinchu Zhongdou Qishu (The Extraordinary History of a New Method of Inoculation Discovered in the Kingdom of England, 1805). Yindou Lue became the most popular vaccination text throughout the 19th century, and was continuously reprinted for many times. It has played an indisputably vital role in the promulgation of the vaccination technique in 19th century China and represented some typical Chinese views on this Western medical practice in early China.
