This comprehensive book on the history of anaesthetic apparatus is a really useful resource for anyone studying anaesthesia equipment. It is based around the Charles King Collection at the AAGBI and contains many black and white photographs.
This book is a compilation of the cover notes of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care published over more than twenty years. Extensively illustrated with colour photographs, it is based around the Geoffrey Kaye Museum of Anaesthetic History in Melbourne, Australia. These cover notes provide a timeline of the development of many pieces of apparatus, as well as many pharmaceuticals. It can be purchased from the ASA by clicking on the image
