Prepared from the 1916 first edition, the book is a record of the first five years of the Codman Hospital, founded in Boston as a model of the End Result System. The hospital was short-lived; Codman was ridiculed for his reformist ideas; and the End Result System, after having spread to a number of notable hospitals, died out by the 1920's. Yet as a forerunner of modern medical care evaluation, it is a subject worthy of close attention. Click here to Order

In the days before photography, great events were captured by painters and sketch artists. This book contains more than 1500 images, from the ancient Egyptians' own portrayals of their river through European maps of the medieval, Renaissance, and Enlightenment eras. Later on, artists who accompanied the search teams and military campaigns produced dramatic scenes of battles, paintings of the African cultures they encountered, architectural renderings of pyramids and temples along the river's bank, botanical/zoological illustrations of indigenous flora and fauna, and illustrative surveys of pharaonic riches uncovered- all of which are magnificently reproduced herein.

M. Dent & Co.; 1902 - 1903..
Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. was a physician by profession but achieved fame as a writer; he was one of the best regarded American poets of the 19th century. Holmes in this series of essays uses the atmosphere of a boarding-house breakfast table and the personalities of its boarders to drive his essays on morality, religion, and other smaller topics. There was a fifteen year gap between Holmes writing the first and the last of this series, which leads to a very different tone in the final two volumes much more mellow and nostalgic.

This book provides a visual record of that time through photographs, some depicting the devastation of war brought to Northern Australia, while others capture how life was for so many during this time.

Certainly Stephenson and his firm rate mention in all the Australian architectural history textbooks, but the reference is brief. Two books commissioned by the firm itself have been published. One book titled "Sir Arthur Stephenson Australian Architecture 1987" by John Shaw is based on Allyson Barripp's Bachelor of Architecture thesis and is short and descriptive leaving the buildings to speak for themselves. The other book is the one offered here "Sephenson & Turner 1920 - 1970", again short on history and description but putting a wonderful collection of photographs detailing the 50 years of work.
