    Comments on a British Medical Journal report on a forthcoming exhibition commemorating the tercentenary of William Harvey's birth. Quotes the journal's view that having 'original copies' of Harvey's books on display is an 'excellent precedent in matters of circulation'. Suggests that a possible examination question at the Royal College of Surgeons would be to request an opinion regarding the 'probability of a jocular allusion' to 'Harvey's immortal discovery' in this use of the word 'circulation'.
