This volume is dedicated to Professor E. B. Streiff. Professor Streiff has been for more than 30 years the professor and chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. He was born in Genoa, Italy, and trained under Franceschetti in Geneva. He has been one of the most prominent European ophthalmologists of this generation. Having reached the mandatory retirement age, he will pass on the proud tradition that was established by O. Dufour, Jules Gonin, and Marc Amsler.
Practically all the contributions come from European authors (the one exception is an article from Argentina) and are in French, German, or English. A number of the articles are from the Lausanne Clinic itself. It is impossible to give justice to the numerous contributions, but two of them interested me especially. One was a survey of ophthalmology as practiced in Lausanne during the 19th century by R. Dufour
