This excellent new text in French comes from the pens of two ophthalmologists well known in this country for their work on ophthalmodynamometry and physiology of the eye, respectively. The text, of 1,166 pages, follows the usual anatomic division of ocular diseases. Part 1 contains chapters on the general examination of the patient, ocular pain, special technics used by ophthalmologists, including a short description of gonioscopy, and a short chapter on general laboratory studies. In view of the condensation necessary in most of the book, it seems to the reviewer that this chapter could have been omitted to save space.

Part 2 deals with the diseases of the eye and orbit; part 3 covers the field of surgery, and part 4 is concerned with refractive errors and their correction.

The illustrations are excellent, and the text is easy to read for any one with an elementary knowledge of French.
