VALENTINE MOTT [1852-1918] physician. He had been attending surgeon for the out-door department of Bellevue hospital since 1879, and had performed many of the larger operations in surgery. In May, 1887, he went to Paris as the representative of the American Pasteur Institute, and studied under Louis Pasteur the prophylactic treatment for hydrophobia, which he introduced into the United States, bringing away the first innoculated rabbit that Pasteur allowed to leave his laboratory. He had successfully treated many that had been bitten by rabid animals. His principal medical paper is "Rabies and How to Prevent it, being a Discussion of Hydrophobia and the Pasteur Method of Treatment." Offered here is a 1884 Oregon Transcontinental Company stock certificate signed by Mott on the back. The certificate has a graphic of two Indians overlooking a railroad train. One fold. VG. A very scarce autograph relating to rabies.
