"From the water-closets of Crete and Mohenjo-Daro (3500-2500 B.C.) to the latest modern developments of sanitary engineering, this historical survey covers developments by Hindus, Chinese, Greeks, Romans, and all the rest; the sanitation, or lack of it, in cities ancient and modern; the curious measures taken to combat plague in the Middle Ages; the outlandish taboos that have possessed the Unsanitary Ones of the earth. In 1596 Sir John Harington announced his invention of the first modern valve water-closet to Elizabethan society with an appropriate survey of sanitary conditions among the ancients and in his own time."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
