The fourth edition of this much enlarged and revised textbook appeared in 1938 and was reviewed in these Archives (21: 561 [May] 1939). That edition was so popular that a new one soon became necessary and was ready in October 1944, but the terrible and tragic days which the war has brought to Austria, and particularly to Vienna, postponed its publication to this year. The excellent qualities of the fourth edition are just as outstanding in the fifth. The operations described are, with a few exceptions, those which have stood the test of time at the First Ophthalmic Clinic of the Allgemeines Krankenhaus in Vienna.
The young ophthalmic surgeon will not find the description of the fundamental principles in ophthalmic surgery so thoroughly treated and so well explained in any other book. In many cases only one method of operating is selected, as Meller says it is not the method
