English hospitals 1660-1948: a survey of their architecture and design
Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England, 1998 - Architecture - 222 pages
Fascinating social and architectural history of hospitals and disease in England from the 17th century to the middle of the 20th century. From cottage hospitals to workhouse infirmaries to hospitals for infectious diseases and hospitals of the armed forces, this is a fully illustrated, wide-ranging study. Invaluable to social and architectural historians but also to anyone with a healthy interest in these things.
