Seconda edizione italiana di questo autorevole trattato cardiologico, A treatise on the disease of the heart and great vessels (London, 1832). L'Hope (Stockport, 1801-Londra, 1841) è considerato il primo cardiologo moderno nel senso effettivo del termine. " His great work came out at the end of 1831 (1832) with the title 'A Treatise on the Diseases of the Heart and Great Vessels; comprising a new view of the Physiology of the Heart's Action, according to which the physical signs are explained.' The book was received with approbation in this country, in America, and on the continent, where it was translated into German by an old Edinburgh friend, Dr. Becker of Berlin. A third edition appeared in 1839, corrected and greatly enlarged, and with the addition of plates; and a fourth edition in 1849, after his death, with his latest additions and corrections, but without the plates, and in a cheaper form. Hope's final conclusions about the sounds of the heart are on the whole justified by modern experiments, and adopted, with certain additions, by teachers in the existing physiological schools." (William Alexander Greenhill in Dictionary of National Biography, 1885-1900, vol. 27). Cfr. Garrison-Morton, 2747: "Hope did much to advance the knowledge of heart murmurs, valvular disease, and aneurysm.".Wellcome, III, 299. Italiano
