The reviewer, not being a professional ophthalmologist, is unable adequately to criticize certain parts of this book. He is impressed, however, with the fact that here in small space are given the essentials of ophthalmology in concise and readable form. The illustrations are well executed and abundant, and there are useful diagrams concerning both optical and other matters. The writer has dealt well not only with topics pertaining locally to the eye but with the relation of ophthalmology to internal medicine.
