"This scholarly scientific monograph soon became the bible of electrocardiography" (DSB VIII: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). This third edition is the last Lewis issued, and adds many new observations since the first and second: "their incorporation has rendered it necessary to re-write considerable sections of the text and to add a number of new chapters" (Preface). Garrison-Morton-Norman 854 and 2851.
