Baltimore:: Williams & Wilkins, 1936., 1936. Reprint (1936). 8vo. xii, 396 pp. Indices. Blue gilt-stamped cloth. Very good +. "The book contains an enormous amount of information, much of which is based upon Dr. Harrison's own observations. The style is clear and the presentation log ideal. The monograph is heartily recommended to all who are interested in the study of the circulation. It can be read with profit, and, it is fair to add, with pleasure, both by investigator and practitioner." – Robert L. Levy, American Heart Journal, 1940, Vol. 19, Issue 1 [review of the second edition]. As for the author, "Tinsley (1900–1978) would graduate from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1922 — where he was a classmate, roommate and tennis doubles partner of Johns Hopkins' future surgeon-in-chief Alfred Blalock — and ultimately become "one of the most important and pivotal medical doctors in U.S. history," according to his biographer and protege, James Pittman Jr. (1927–2014). Harrison is best remembered for Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, published in 1950, reprinted 16 times, translated into 14 languages, and perhaps the world's most-used and best-selling internal medical text. He was the first chair of medicine and dean of the Medical College of Alabama, now part of the University of Alabama at Birmingham" – Neil A. Grauer, Johns Hopkins Medicine.
