Richardson was awarded a knighthood in 1893. He died in 1896. His family, chiefly his only daughter, supervised the publication of two post-humous books listing him as author: Vita Medica (1897), and Disciples of Æsculapius.

The essay on Snow in the latter is a virtual reprint of what appeared in The Asclepiad in 1887, with the exception that articles, book titles, and Parliamentary acts are italicized rather than set off by quotation marks. [PVJ]
