This bibliography of the history of ophthalmology has been compiled with the needs of two groups of readers in mind. The first group are those readers who want, from time to time, to spend hours of quiet pleasure exploring the past of the specialty of ophthalmology; for them this bibliography can serve as a reading list. The second group, scholars and medical historians, will find, it is hoped, that the bibliography is a tool that will spare them hours of tedious work.
The material is arranged under subject headings, and in two instances under subheadings as well. Standard abbreviations are used for the journal titles. Only articles that have appeared in medical and scientific journals have been included, and all these journals can be obtained in medical libraries in the United States. The titles of the articles have been translated into English, and the original language has been indicated by
