This monograph, in French, is another valuable contribution sponsored by the French Ophthalmological Society. The volume is divided into two sections, the first 200 pages covering the normal lens—its embryology, anatomy, physical and chemical properties, and immunology. The following 400 pages are concerned with cataracts; the pathological anatomy, the physical and chemical changes which occur in cataract formation, the pathogenesis, and the medical treatment of cataracts are all given in detail.
The print and general make-up of the book are excellent and maintain the same high standard that the previous monographs have set. The book will be useful for all ophthalmologists with a reading knowledge of French.
