The comparative anatomy of the eye-muscles of fishes, birds, reptiles and mammals is considered in the chapter devoted to anatomy. This chapter is particularly exhaustive and is divided into ten sections, which deal with the movements and positions of the eyes, with comparative anatomy, with the orbital measurements, planes, axes, etc., with the eye-muscles themselves, and with the insertions of the tendons, etc., covering the anatomy of the orbital aponeuroses, capsule of Tenon, vessels and nerves. Under physiology is discussed
