A statement of the occurrences during a malignant yellow fever in the city of New-York, in the summer and autumnal months of 1819; and of the check given to its progress, by the measures adopted by the Board of Health. With a list of cases and names of sick persons, and a map of their places of residence within the infected and proscribed limits: With a view of ascertaining, by comparative arguments, whether the distemper was engendered by domestic causes, or communicated by human contagion from foreign ports.

New York: Printed by William A. Mercein, 1819.

Pascalis mapped this yellow fever outbreak using a method similar to Valentine Seaman, but with a more extensive and detailed list of cases. A condensation of his 60-page pamphlet with a reissue of his map appeared in the Medical Repository,  a journal edited by Pascalis and Samuel L. Mitchell, Vol. 5 (1820). Digital facsimile of the 1819 pamphlet from the U.S. National Library of Medicine at this link.
