Excerpt from The Johns Hopkins Hospital Reports, 1920, Vol. 19 We have then two perfectly fresh hearts belonging to men of practically the same age, the one pathological and the other normal. We propose here to set forth all the observations which we have been able to make upon this valuable material.

These facts also permit us to evaluate correctly the pathological alterations in the diseased specimen. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
