Numerous views of both the interior and exterior of prominent commercial buildings of the United States are given in a little pamphlet entitled "Heat Insulation and Fire Protection in Prominent Buildings," issued by the H. W. Johns Mfg. Co., of New York. The pamphlet presents, in an interesting manner, the extensive use of the Johns asbestos pipe and boiler coverings in steam plants. The views are neatly arranged and are well executed. The pamphlet will be preserved by many as an album of modern architecture as it shows clearly the design of the many mercantile blocks and public institutions recently erected. It is interesting since it places, convenient for comparison, the buildings of the different American cities. It contains also a list of the material manufactured by the above company, includinig the materials in the interest of which this pamphlet is issued, the fireproof paints, building material, the asbestos packings and vulcasbeston material, and the mica insulating compunds for electrical installations.
