New Haven:: Yale University Press, 1975., 1975. Large 4to. xxviii, 349,  pp. Frontis., 263 illus., 26 tables, index; occasional red ink underlining or marginalia. Red gilt- and black-stamped cloth, dust-jacket: jacket extremities worn. Rubber stamp denoting review copy on front paper. Very good. ISBN: 0300018290 "The larger histories of the hospital have for some years fallen within the ken of British, French, and German scholars. The present work, a large quarto printed in double columns, is lavishly illustrated with over 300 floor plans, engravings, paintings, and photographs which elucidate a text buttressed by the best monographic literature. Unobtrusively advertised by the publisher as a 'monumental study,' it is the most successful and authoritative single-volume history available." - Louis S. Greenbaum, "The Hospital: A Social and Architectural History. John D. Thompson, Grace Goldin," Isis 68, no. 1 (Mar., 1977): 133-134.
