This is essentially a reprint of the third edition, yet new facts are added here and there in a few words or a short paragraph, or some modification of statement is made so that it may justly be stated that there has been a careful revision. The worth of the volume has been many times declared by teachers and reviewers, and is plainly attested by the demand for the fourth edition. Not the least valuable feature is the preface, which clearly sets forth the debt owed by cardiology to the electrocardiograph and polygraph, but which also points out the fact that without these instruments of precision the general practitioner, by understanding the processes underlying cardiac irregularities, may recognize and intelligently treat these otherwise puzzling conditions.
