In the short preface to the sixth edition of this masterly book, J. Meller mentions that the previous edition of 1946 went out of print in less than a year. If confirmation of the great appeal of this book to eye surgeons were necessary, it would be clearly shown by this unusual demand.
The qualities of the text, which is one of the best teaching aids in ophthalmology ever written, will be remembered by all who had contact with the previous editions. This concise presentation of surgical procedures on the eye and its adnexa contains all essentials for the young ophthalmologist. Clear language, comprehensive organization and a logical selection of material again characterize the new edition, which is a revision by Meller's pupil Josef Bock. He wisely did not alter essentially many of the chapters based on the experience of the great surgeon, teacher and master of the German language.
