Second Edition, retitled, of Garrison-Morton 854 and 2851 (citing this 2nd ed). Original title: Mechanism of the Heart Beat with Especial Reference to Its Clinical Pathology (1911). xx, 452 pp; 349 figs. (some in color). Original cloth, small 4to. Top half of rear joint splitting, else Very Good. "This scholarly scientific monograph soon became the bible of electrocardiography" (D.S.B. 8: 294). "The [First Edition of the] present work is one of [Lewis's] earliest and most important books, published when he was only twenty-nine. Dedicated to Mackenzie and Willem Einthoven, Lewis has set forth principles of cardiac physiology, which are the very basis of modern clinical procedures. A scarce book, it is well-illustrated with electrocardiographic tracings and contains a valuable bibliography" (Heirs of Hippocrates 2317). Bedford 526 (citing the 1925 3rd ed.). The 1st ed. contained approximately 300 pages and 214 figs. The signature on the half-title of this copy is John Hay, Liverpool. My guess is that it is the John Hay born in 1873, who died in 1959 (the First John Hay Memorial Lecture was delivered at the University of Liverpool, 8 April 1965). In 1909 Hay published a book related to the Lewis title offered here, Graphic methods in heart disease (Henry Frowde, 1909). But there was also a Hay of Liverpool born in 1909, who died last December. Regarding this Hay (the son, perhaps?): "John Hay was the first professor of child health in Liverpool. He pioneered the use of cardiac catheterisation in children and built up a team of skilled surgeons and anaesthetists. In 1948 he started the Alder Hey collection of babies' hearts taken at post mortem and by 1999 there were more than 2000 available for study. They undoubtedly played a major role in improving the care of children with heart abnormalities" (please ask for on-line source). N° de ref. de la librería 13010
