Description

Image of the Retreat at York in England, one of the pioneers of "moral treatment" of the insane, whose work influenced the decision to create a new kind of asylum in New York in 1815. The picture appeared on the frontispiece of the publication that was published in the United States in 1813 and was no doubt read by Thomas Eddy.
