Bibliophiles and all who are attentive to the history of science in general and of medicine in particular will welcome this scholarly book, which is a fitting companion to the translation of Lower's De corde, made by Franklin in 1932. It is not, as bibliographies are wont to be, a mere compilation; it is much more. It is a painstaking study with wise comments, a study that evinces erudition and a genuine love of the task. One finds here the same high order of merit shown by Fulton's bibliography of Robert Boyle, published in 1932. The promised bibliographies of Willis, Hooke and others will be awaited with interest.
