The author gives a commendable exposition of the mechanics and physics of optics, and of the refractive and motor mechanism of the eye with reference to the correction of its visual defects by lenses and nerve-tract and muscle exercises. Though elementary in character, the book gives a sufficiently full and clear explanation to aid the student or physicin in acquiring a practical knowledge of the subject. An appendix contains algebraic formulas to elucidate the various optical problems. The book is well illustrated.
