This history of physiological opinions and discovery, in regard to the circulation of the blood is, as far as we are aware, the most complete work upon the subject. It is written in the most charming style and is abundantly backed up by an appendix containing quotations from the ancient writers. To those who wish to read a good book or review their Greek, special advantages are offered by this volume. Neither is the review of the subject untimely. In fact, a passing glance at the history of great events is seldom untimely, for by observing the laborious research and heated argument which extending over periods of years finally result in the establishment of to us every day doctrines, we can better appreciate the labors of those patient workers of to-day, who are by research and thought laying new foundations for future generations.
