Handy Book of Cottage Hospitals. Illustrated with plates and woodcuts.
London: Hamilton, Adams and Co. [1870. Weston-Super-Mare printed]. - 184p, xxv. Original brown cloth. A very nice copy. Horace Swete, Medical Superintendent of the West of England Sanatorium or Convalescent Home, Weston-Super-Mare. The Cottage Hospital Movement was a scheme whereby the Poor were to be helped to help themselves. The local Hospitals were to be a receiving home for poor patients where the medical man ".will be enabled to carry out his treatment, and operate, if necessary, feeling that more success must attend his efforts than if his patient remained in the crowded, and often dirty, cottage of the poor." Despite clear advantages to the poor themselves the plan ran into considerable opposition from the medical profession and was thought to threaten the success of the established, large regional hospitals.
