PREFACE.

The present series of Health Lectures is devoted to the subject of House

Construction, with especial reference to their healthy occupation, and in

the hope of rendering the volume more useful to all householders, a lecture

by Professor Munro, of the Owens College, on "The Legal Position of Landlords, Tenants, and Sanitary Authorities," has been added to the series. The

lectures were delivered at the Manchester Technical School to large

audiences, composed chiefly of architects, plumbers, and men engaged

practically in the various branches of the building trade.

We may fairly

anticipate that in consequence of these lectures increased attention will be

paid to make our homes more healthy and therefore happier.

To the householder himself this volume will supply a means of testing and checking the various operations of workpeople employed about his house.

A. RANSOME,
Chairman of the Committee,
Manchester and Salford Sanitary Association,

August 28th, 1885.
