How Many Books Could A BookChamer Charm

Come on, you know how the rest goes! Let's not mutate the Fuzzy Wuzzy Was a Bear into something about the BookCharmer not being very Charming, because that wouldn't be nice. Also, please do not have images of the Bookcharmer chucking or chewing on books. She charms them, she really does.

Or perhaps they charm her. Why, just walking by the windows of the Friends of King Library bookstore can stall me, induce loitering, longing to brush fingertips across book jackets...

But we digress.

Interesting title uncovered today, as I labor to uncover the proper LCSHs for architectural history. The title du jour is:

The hospital: a social and architectural history / John D. Thompson and Grace Goldin. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1975.

Wouldn't it be interesting to compare Foucault's Madness and Civilization with the above text? Would you mind doing that for me and giving me the executive summary? Cool, thanks.

Because I've got to get back to puzzling over LCSHeadings for architectural history.
