The seventeenth edition of this yearbook, like its predecessors, is a compendium of information for purchasers. Practically everything used in building and operating a hospital is included. The material is helpfully indexed and classified. The last fifty pages present special articles on various classes of hospital apparatus, from air humidifiers to devices for refrigeration and insulation. There is a comprehensive check list for the purchase of hospital equipment and a list of national, state and sectional hospital and allied agencies.
