About This Item
First Edition. Garrison-Morton 1601. Although best known as a prison reformer on the strength of his famous State of the Prisons in England and Wales (1777; see Printing and the Mind of Man 224), the English philanthropist John Howard was also concerned with the improvement of sanitary conditions in other public institutions. His work in this area represents an important link in the development of the public health movement. The present work, an investigation of the conditions of English and European hospitals (including mental hospitals and quarantine detention houses) contains both plans and notes on management and personnel; it also includes notes of Howard's latest inspections of Irish, Scottish and English prisons..
