After a five-year war interval, Specification (Technical Journals. Ltd., Tothili

Street, S.W., 5s. net) has again appeared. It will be at least as welcome to all concerned with building as have been any of its previous twenty-one editions. The old standard is fully maintained, whilst a number of " Special Articles " by authoritative writers deal with such various subjects as " Cinema Design," " Factory Construction," " Labour-Saving Bungalows," " Pise Building," " Oil Cooking," and " National Housing." There are illustrative plans and photographs, an exhaustive analytical index and an equally useful index to the adver• tisemente.
