This hybrid of a textbook and an atlas was compiled by a quartet of neuro-ophthalmologists from England, Ireland, and the United States, with the assistance of 27 contributors from the United Kingdom (12), United States (12), Japan (2), and Canada (1). The English influence is evident in the introduction, when the authors note that the complexity of neuroanatomy and clinical neuro-ophthalmology, and perhaps their inability to match Shakespeare's descriptive language (exemplified by a 2-line portion of his 33rd sonnet), led them to accompany the text with abundant high-quality illustrations, including the external appearance of patients, fundus photographs, anatomical drawings, and radiographic scans. The 17 striking pictures painted by artists with migraine in chapter 22 deserve special mention.
