This year's publication of the Societé française d' ophthalmologie follows the pattern set in previous monographs. It is an exhaustive review of the present state of knowledge concerning the embryology and teratology of the eye. Much of the text is based upon personal studies by the authors, but an extensive review of the literature is included in each section.
Divergent theories concerning normal and abnormal development are carefully defined and evaluated in the light of past and present knowledge. Particular emphasis is placed upon studies which have led to a better understanding of the various influences upon the mechanism of development. Illustrative photomicrographs are used to advantage to amplify the text, and a series of colored drawings is reproduced following the text.
This should be a valuable contemporary reference work for those interested in normal and abnormal developmental anatomy of the eye.
