        The frontispiece is of the elevation of the hospital and its foregrounds and street running along the front of the property. It was engraved by the "Western Bank Note & Engraving, Chicago."
        The work ends with lots of the usual facts and figures.

Publisher's green wrappers printed in black; minor edgewear. Very good.  (40560)   Please RESHELVE This.
