    FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST DESCRIPTION OF A HUMAN ELECTROCARDIOGRAM recorded with a string galvanometer. It was long believed that a German paper entitled 'Die Galvanometrische Registrirung des menschlichen Elektrokardiogramms,...', 1903, was the first publication on the electrocardiogram. Instead the above mentioned article by Einthoven in the Dutch Festschrift for Prof. Rosenstein, 'preceded the more widely known German paper by a year' [Preface p.XVI of Grolier 100 Medicine]. cf. Garrison-Morton 842; Gedeon pp.366-371.
