The Dwellings of the Labouring Classes, Roberts's most famous work, was first delivered as a paper the RIBA in 1850 and was published in that year. The Essentials of a Healthy Dwelling followed in 1862. These two papers are collected here with a third, The Benefits of a Healthy Dwelling, which was also written in 1862. Together they lay out Robert's detailed vision for healthy housing in town and country and summarise comprehensively the work already done.
