A historical account of the Royal Hospital for Seamen at Greenwich. M,DCC,LXXXIX. London: G. Nicol, T. Cadell...., 1789.
"This describes the former Royal Naval Hospital at Greenwich, originally designed in 1664 by John Webb as a palace, and afterwards adapted for use as a Naval Hospital by Sir Christopher Wren, with the assistance of Nicholas Hawksmoor (1696-1752). The Painted Hall was decorated by James Thornhill (1708-1727), and the Chapel remodelled by James Stuart (1779-1789). At the centre of this magnificent baroque complex stands Inigo Jones's earlier Queen's House (1616-1638). The buildings were in use as a Naval Hospital from 1705 to 1869" (https://www.royalacademy.org.uk/art-artists/book/an-historical-account-of-the-royal-hospital-for-seamen-at-greenwich).
