This is a collection of addresses that were given in the eighth instruction course for ophthalmologists, held in Frankfort Feb. 21-27, 1937. As each address is an entity, a review of the subject matter is out of the question. There were twenty-seven lectures, of which a comparatively small number were by ophthalmologists, although the audience was comprised entirely of ophthalmologists. General medical men, neurologists, brain surgeons, psychologists, illuminating engineers and the like talked on the borderline topics of ophthalmology, each in accordance with his own estimation of the mental capacity of the audience. As a result, the caliber of the papers varies enormously. This is at variance with the present day regimentation of the country. The bookmaking is excellent, as are the illustrations, some of which are colored.
