Dr Neil R. Miller, the Frank B. Walsh Professor of Neuro-Ophthalmology at The Johns Hopkins Institutions, Baltimore, sets a very high standard in the first two volumes of his revision of Walsh and Hoyt's classic. Volume 1 covered the visual sensory system and the optic nerve. Volume 2 covered the autonomic nervous system, eye movements, and the sensory innervation of the eye and orbit. This latest volume, on tumors and related lesions, may be even better than its two predecessors, a remarkable achievement. Volume 3 is the most complete, the most useful, and the most readable book on clinical aspects of nervous system tumors currently available, and it is apt to remain so for a long time.
The first section of this large work (733 pages) is devoted to diagnosis. It informs the reader about the symptoms and signs (neuro-ophthalmic and otherwise) of mass lesions at various loci. Excellent illustrations
