    The D.M.S.C. was founded in 1973, with the blessing of the late Dr. K. F. Meyer, the World Health Organisation authority on Plague, and editor of the definitive work, Disinfected Mail. It was his wish that research into the topic should continue, leading ultimately to the publication of authoritative books and monographs on practice of disinfection and quarantine in all parts of the world : many countries had not even been considered in his seminal work.
    Since then, specialists, including medical and social historians as well as collectors, have been researching and publishing accounts of the treatment of mail, from 14th century up to the 20th, in Pratique. Almost every country in the world has been the topic of one or more articles: and for many of these, (including Egypt, Gibraltar, Hawaii, 20th century USA, Serbia and Russia), the result has been the equivalent of a specialist monograph.
    The scope of the journal has been extended to cover related topics, including maritime and other Certificates of Health; ship's documents of pratique; public health proclamations restricting or restoring the freedom to trade with ports or regions suspected of harbouring infectious diseases; maps, prints, postcards or descriptions of lazarettos ; and vaccination ephemera, including anti-compulsory vaccination envelopes and postcards. Pratique, the journal of the Study Circle, is now published three times a year, and has won many international awards for original research. ...
