What an excellent English translation of the German text of this superb atlas of fluorescein angiography! One year ago I eagerly purchased Wessing's original German edition, but my college German let me down and I had to content myself with the fine photographic illustrations. Now the harmony of a concise English text and painstakingly clear, detailed photographs leaves the reader with a standard reference work on fluorescein angiography in ocular disease which should serve for years. If one also considers Shikano and Shimizu's Atlas of Fluorescence Fundus Angiography, recently published, I think that the interested ophthalmologist and certainly all medical libraries now have available two comprehensive unabridged dictionaries of the new language of ocular fluorescein studies.

For the present reviewer, who is most interested in fluorescein studies in ophthalmology, this new book answers many previously unanswered questions and opens new avenues of inquiry. Even a casual perusal offers great rewards
