About this Item

"Printed for private circulation." 94 p.; 23 cm. Tan cloth with black-stamped cover title. Inscription on front fixed endpaper indicates that doctors W. Robert Penman and Dorothy I. Lansing acquired this volume from Baldwin's Book Barn in 1966. In 1913, the author, Dr. Arthur Ames Bliss (1859-1913), revised his own journal of the year he spent nearly 30 years earlier as the resident doctor at the Philadelphia almshouse known as Blockley. Valuable for both his original reflections on his experiences at Blockley in 1883-4, and for his reflections on those same experiences after nearly three decades of work as a doctor and of changes in the care of the impoverished in Philadelphia. In Very Good+ Condition: cover lightly soiled; a few pages opened carelessly; foxing on endpapers; otherwise, pages are clean and tight. Bookseller Inventory # 003430
