26 cm. xiii, 466 pp. Illus., index; fore-edges and first 3 ff. lightly foxed. Red and gilt-stamped black cloth; spine faded. Very good. "This monograph …. is really a review of the literature with a few comments regarding the authors' position on some of the atrioventricular nodal problems under discussion. The review is complete and scholarly and each chapter has a fairly complete bibliography beginning with the earliest work on the subject. Because of the authors' European background, French and German references form a substantial portion of the bibliography. This is of great value to the American reader because a good deal of the early work published in these foreign languages is available for review. The contents of the monograph form a fairly comprehensive discussion of the atrioventricular node, its anatomy and physiology, and a differential diagnosis of all varieties of atrioventricular rhythm. Included also are atrioventricular block, return extrasystoles, atrioventricular dissociation bloc, return extrasystoles, atrioventricular nodal parasystole, and pre-excitation syndrome. The chapters dealing with atrioventricular dissociation, pre-excitation syndrome, and atrioventricular rhythm are particularly comprehensive and well illustrated. …. The book will appeal to those who are interested in the historical development of arrhythmias and conduction disturbances involving the atrioventricular node, but will be of limited value to clinicians who desire a greater clinical approach." - Reviewed by MAURICE SOKOLOW, M.D.in WJM 1964 October; 101(4): 322–323.
