No subject in the whole field of clinical medicine has been so adequately presented in English as that of diseases of the heart. Both in the general text-books on practice, in manuals of physical diagnosis and in special works on the heart, wise teaching, based on thorough anatomical study and sound clinical observation, has been the rule. The translation of a German work on the heart, therefore, must be of unusual excellence, and present the subject from a new standpoint, or with important additions to our knowledge, to justify its acquisition by English-speaking physicians. For it must be admitted that a translation seldom conveys ideas with the clearness and force of the language in which they are originally formulated; also that the delay in publication which it entails necessitates the introduction of the latest work in the form of editorial notes, which break the continuity of the presentation.
