Architectural Hygiene; Or Sanitary Science as Applied to Buildings, a Text-Book for Architects, Surveyors, Engineers, Medical Officers of Health, Sanitary Inspectors, and Students, 1902: Written and Fully Illustrated (Classic Reprint) by Banister F Fletcher (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from Architectural Hygiene; Or Sanitary Science as Applied to Buildings, a Text-Book for Architects, Surveyors, Engineers, Medical Officers of Health, Sanitary Inspectors, and Students, 1902: Written and Fully Illustrated Sanitary Science may be said to be the product of the nineteenth century, indeed of the Victorian era. Although a considerable number of text books are published dealing with portions of the subject, the Authors feel that a concise yet complete text book treating the subject in all its branches, so far as it affects Architects, Surveyors, Engineers, Medical Officers of Health, Sanitary Inspectors, Plumbers, and Students generally, would be of real use. It is also hoped that such a work on this ever-advancing science, copiously illustrated, and brought up to, date, should be of value to an increasing number of householders, who take an interest in the subject. These latter are finding out that soundness of drains and fittings, and also an intelligent interest in the fittings and finishing of a house, are indispensable to health. The subject is treated ab initio, i.e., from the foundation of a building to its finishing and furnishing, and the application of modern methods of ventilation, lighting, and heating are discussed, so as to render the dwelling, when finished, a fit habitation for the occupant.
