This monograph is an exhibit presented at the meeting of the American Medical Association in 1947. It consists of colored plates of each of several hearts with congenital defects, a photograph of one such heart studied at autopsy, a typical teleoroentgenogram, an electrocardiogram and a brief clinical diagnostic note and a historical note. Only two pages are devoted to each of the sixteen separate defects presented.

It is doubtful that these pages will prove to be of value to anyone. The exhibit most likely was much more valuable when presented and when the authors were present with personal dissertation and discussions.
