Note: There are references in this bibliography to books which were printed after 1783, the year that the Detached Hospital disbanded. I have used only those which in their narrative describe incidents that occurred either during the time period that the hospital existed or before, or express knowledge that was commonly known in the time period in question.
These references are marked with an * and a discussion follows the entire bibliography.
