London, Macmillan and Co., 1876. First edition, first impression. Paperback. A very good copy. Written to help illustrate how sanitation could improve lives, the book nowadays can be seen as equally a work of Utopian fiction. Including certain novel ideas such as a balance between cremation and burial, wherein the dead are interred in shrouds in articifical soil to aid decomposition. Uncommon in general, certainly in the original wraps and not having come from libraries. The orange wraps are rubbed and worn, but fairly tight overall. 47pp. [10946, Hyraxia Books].
