The second of two volumes dealing with biomicroscopy of the eye constitutes an attractive and accurate presentation of the inner parts of the eye. It is a combination clinical guide, textbook and atlas on slit-lamp examination of the living eye which features concise descriptions of practically every known condition of the iris, lens and vitreous. It will be found to be of unusual clinical usefulness to the ophthalmologist who wants to perfect himself in this branch of ophthalmologic examination. The descriptions are clear and to the point, with the biomicroscopic appearance beautifully illustrated. The eight-color plates faithfully reproduce the colors of the originals. The 11 page bibliography is exceptionally complete. This is the only thorough and comprehensive atlas on this subject in the English language, and it merits a place in every ophthalmologist's library.
