In the volume entitled "Summary of Systemic Ophthalmology," which customarily we call medical and neuro-ophthalmology, Sir Stewart has provided us with a summary of references indicating where each subject can be found in the previously published six volumes. The summary is divided into four main headings: (1) Infective Systemic Diseases, (2) Non-Infective Systemic Diseases, (3) Diseases of the Central Nervous System, and (4) Diseases of the Skin. Each section is broken down into subjects arranged alphabetically; for example, in the section on infective systemic diseases, the first entry is "acrodynia" and the last "zoster." After each entry the page or pages are given where the subject is treated, and the appropriate volume in which the page is to be found can be determined from the key at the top of each page. This system in itself would be quite unworkable were it not for Sir Stewart's genius in coordination. Under
