Baltimore: Johns Hopkins Hospital, 1890. Hardcover. A detailed account of the construction of Johns Hopkins Hospital illustrated with 56 plates. The plates include photographic illustrations of interiors and exteriors (including pipes and boiler rooms), floor plans of each building, and sectional views. The text reprints the addresses given at the opening of the hospital and includes a discussion of the grounds, building arrangement, and plan preparation, as well as a statement about each building and its systems: heating, water, sewage, lighting, telephones, clocks, administration building, kitchen building, nurses' home, amphitheater, bath house, isolating ward, octagon ward, dispensary, etc. Bound in three quarter black leather over marbled paper covered boards with gilt title to spine. While a beautiful production, this book is unfortunately dampstained along the edge of the text-block, which affects about a quarter of each page. Some pages have visible dampstaining and some are just rippled. Luckily, the margins are quite wide and the staining remains in the margins of most pages. The edges of the boards are dampstained as well and the marbled paper is chipped along the edges. The leather covering the spine is heavily worn and chipped. The front hinge is cracked and the front cover is nearly detached. The covers are rubbed and worn. Full marbled edges and marbled endpapers. A scarce title, this is still a good reading / reference copy despite the noted damage. Size: Folio. 116 pages of text plus 56 plates. MED/111419. Good.
