Title continues: "and on the Affections Which May be Mistaken for Them: Comprising the Author's View of the Physiology of the Heart's Action and Sounds as Demonstrated by His Experiments on the Motions and Sounds in 1830, and on the sounds in 1834-5." English physician James Hope (1801-1841) has been considered the first modern cardiologist, "the Hope of cardiology." This, his major work, appeared in 1831 and was well received internationally. His conclusions about heart sounds became widely accepted, so that Hope murmur and Hope sign (a double heartbeat) were soon named after him. His early death was from consumption.
