Here is another book by a benevolent specialist for the poor dear general practitioner. The book has the one great advantage of brevity, and yet it is remarkable how much misinformation can be spread over so little paper. For example, the author writes about "an optic neuritis which is now better known as papilledema" and fails to differentiate the conditions. True it is that the author has mentioned a goodly number of afflictions of the orbs, but the manner of mention does not contain the information so desired by the general practitioner when the patient enters his office. Scattered among the pages are many pictures, those of the fundus being good and the others not so good. At the conclusion is included the usual three pages of therapeutic formulas without which no book for the poor dear general practitioner can be accounted as complete.
