WITH: FYE, W. BRUCE. "[Notes on] James Mackenzie, The Study of the Pulse" [published with the 1992 Gryphon editions reprint of this book], autographed pamphlet.

"In his classic monograph Mackenzie included (p 10) a description and illustration of his polygraph, with which he made simultaneous tracings of the pulse, apex beat, etc" (GM 2812). British cardiologist Maurice Campbell declares, "Modern cardiology was conceived in Burnley. Though one might argue about the exact date, the publication of Mackenzie's book The Study of the Pulse in 1902 would be my choice" ("The British Cardiac Society and Cardiac Club," British Heart Journal, 1962). "The monograph was based on Mackenzie's intensive investigations and was greatly admired by those working on cardiac topics in Europe and America and Britain. It is one of the classic cardiac texts of the century" (Mark Silverman et al, British Cardiology in the 20th Century, 2000). Bedford 67.
