The first textbook of cardiology in English is said to have been Allan Burns' Observations on Some of the Most Frequent and Important Diseases of the Heart, etc. (1809). Burns (1781-1813), of Glasgow, covered the topic in 322 small octavo pages. James Hope (1801-1841) in his Treatise on the Diseases of the Heart and Great Vessels accomplished the same end in 612 pages and William Stokes' (1804-1878) The Diseases of the Heart and the Aorta did it in 689 pages (1854). In the United States, Austin Flint's (1812-1886) A Practical Treatise on the Diagnosis, Pathology, and Treatment of Diseases of
Diseases of the Heart.. Ann Intern Med. 1966;65:867–869. doi: https://doi.org/10.7326/0003-4819-65-4-867
