The author, an architect, devotes his time exclusively to hospital construction, and has compiled an interesting book showing the rapid developments in hospital planning and construction in this country. He pictures and describes many of the world's greatest hospitals abroad as well as hospitals of every size and specialty in this country, the final chapter being concerned with military hospitals of the present war. The book is profusely illustrated. In the period of construction and reconstruction that will now take place, works of this character should be of great service to those planning new medical institutions.
