This volume represents the current views of the French school concerning diseases of the circulatory apparatus. It has been carefully written. It is distinctly not a simple compilation, for each of the four authors has put into his writing his own personality and his own views, based largely on clinical observation and investigation. Vaquez writes the introductory chapter, Lian treats of diseases of the heart, Heitz discusses the diseases of the aorta and arteries, and Leconte discusses diseases of the veins and lymphatic vessels. Clarity of style, good print and good paper with well chosen and well executed illustrations make the reading of the book a pleasure. If a second edition of the book is ever published, it is to be hoped that it will be in two volumes. As one, it is too heavy and bulky.
