Magitot has been interested in ocular physiology for the last forty years. His book on the iris (L'iris, Paris, Gaston Doin & Cie, 1921) is a classic, and he has published innumerable papers on various phases of ocular physiology, more particularly on the circulation of the eye and the regulation of ocular tension. He retired from active duty in the Lariboisière Hospital, of Paris, in 1940 and thus has been enabled to collect his papers and write this excellent book.
It is noticeable that it was written by an ophthalmologist, not a physiologist, for the author has constantly in mind the need of explaining clinical features.
There are fifteen chapters, some of which will be of interest only to ophthalmologists, but others are closely related to the field of neurology. Physiologic optics has purposely been left aside. Chapter 1 deals with the physiology of the lids and of lacrimation. Chapter
