This book will appear as a yearly volume. In addition to a chapter on constitution and by-laws, the volume contains the transactions of the first national meeting of the American College of Cardiology, held Oct. 6, 1951. In the opening address, Dr. Bruno Kisch, chairman of the program committee, presented a brief survey of the pertinent discoveries in the field of cardiology. Among the papers may be mentioned one by Dr. Paul M. Zoll on normal and pathological anatomy of the coronaries, a paper by Dr. Donald E. Gregg on the coronary circulation, a paper by Ashton Graybiel on the clinical symptomatology of coronary insufficiency, and several others that are equally interesting. The transactions should constitute an important addition to the literature in the field of cardiology.
