Elliott, Kirsten:  
The Myth Maker, John Wood 1704-1754

Publisher: Bath, Akeman Press, 2004 (1st Edition).
80pp with full colour and b/w illus. "This book commemorates the tercentenary of John Wood's birth, examines how old myths inspired John Wood, and how new myths grew up about him. In the eighteenth century - the Age of Enlightenment - long held beliefs on religion, history, and science were in turmoil. Old theories were challenged, discarded and reinvented. Many and varied were the hypotheses put forward by thinkers of the age. Among those who put their minds to work on these problems was a young architect from Bath - John Wood. From ideas then current about Druids and Stonehenge, he built a mythical history for the City of Bath, based upon the legendary King Bladud. From being a minor figure, Wood promoted him into being a genius, savant and magician, descended from the Trojans. These myths were to inspire John Wood's buildings. Little is known of Wood's early life, and as interest in him grew over the years, speculations became facts - yet many were just as mythical as Wood's own fables."

Porter, Roy:  
Madmen : a social history of Madhouses, Mad-Doctors & Lunatics ( illustrated edition )

Publisher: Stroud, Tempus Publishing Ltd, 2004 (1st illustrated edition).
319pp with 15 colour plates and 95 b/w illus. This title was originally published in 1987 as "Mind Forg'd Manacles" by Athlone Press ; republished with the added advantage of numerous illustrations, as noted above, following the untimely death of Roy Porter in 2002. The author either edited or wrote approx 100 titles ; he was acknowledged as one of the foremost experts on the history of medicine, and the 18th century period - his specialist subjects are combined in this book. "Best-selling popular historian Roy Porter looks at the bizarre and savage practices of mad-doctors treating those afflicted by 'manias', ranging from huge doses of opium, blood-letting and cold-water immersion to beatings, confinement in cages and blistering. The author reveals how Bethlem - the London asylum created to care for the capital's mentally sick - was riddled with sadism and embezzlement, and if that wasn't dehumanising enough, jeering, ogling sightseers were permitted entry - for a fee of course" The book contains no less than 21 pages of cited bibliography as well as being extensively indexed.
