This pocket size volume is a quiz compend type of outline covering the field of ophthalmology. It has no illustrations. Of necessity such a work cannot give a comprehensive discussion on any phase of the subject and can only serve as a guide for review in preparation for such examinations as are given by state boards or to applicants for internships. In our opinion, it is too brief and condensed to serve as a textbook for the teaching of ophthalmology.
