World Health Day 2021

April 7th is World Health Day, so we are sharing some of our favourite health related books, magazines and ephemera from the AntikBar Books website – there’s everything from health resort brochures to guides on children’s hygiene! Click on the links in the captions to see more.

Health Resorts and Sanatoria

The first sanatorium is thought to have opened in the 1830s to treat tuberculosis. By the early 20th century, doctors routinely prescribed a stay in a health resort or sanatorium to combat a variety of illnesses. Often located in the mountains or by thermal springs, sanatoria offered city-dwellers a chance to enjoy clean air, balanced diets, and long walks. These magazines and brochures focus on health resorts and sanatoria in Europe and the USSR.

English language edition of issue USSR in Construction #1 1936. The issue concentrates on health resorts in the Soviet Union and contains an illustrated map of the resorts, with statistics on patient numbers and photographs.

Sport and Exercise
