There are twelve lectures by Vaquez reported by his intern Théodoresco. Several drugs are discussed, digitalis, strophanthus and quinidin being considered quite fully. The clear style and orderly arrangement make for easy reading. The historical introductory pages add much that is of value. In the first half of the volume the approach to the subject is by way of the drug. In the last half it is by way of the different diseases, there being considered the treatment of such affections as the acute cardiopathies, the arrhythmias, hypertension and angina pectoris. While Vaquez is rather optimistic as to therapy and while one may not always agree with his views, no one can read the book without a lively interest and without receiving many valuable suggestions as to the practical treatment of diseases of the heart.
