Benjamin Ward Richardson
Hygeia : A City of Health
London : Macmillan 1876 - Octavo. Modern blue cloth. Perforated library stamp to title page and page 47 on text. Benjamin Ward Richardson's celebrated address before the Health Department of the Social Science Congress at Brighton in 1875. Hygeia, the name of Richardson gave his ideal city, in which he told of what a city should be if sanitary science were advanced in a proper manner. His Hygeia--a city of health--illustrates one of the influences that gave rise to the modern planning movement in Britain and elsewhere. Concerned little or not at all with the aesthetic aspects of city planning as seen by most architects, Richardson concentrated his imagination and scholarship on defining the conditions required for urban services and facilities that would maximize the health of its residents and thus enhance the quality of their lives. (Modern Sanitary Science--A City Of Health, Cornell University.) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
