In a preface to the 1970 edition of this work, Dr Gass stated that "the purpose of this atlas is to utilize black-and-white fundus photographs, stereo color fundus photographs, fluorescein angiographs, and photomicrographs to illustrate some of the anatomic and physiologic alterations produced by a variety of intraocular disease processes affecting the macular region." The first edition was eminently successful and became one of the standard works on the ophthalmologist's bookshelf. After six years a second edition followed, which updated and expanded the first one. Now a third edition is available. At the start of this new edition, Dr Gass restates his goal and has fulfilled it more completely than before. Several changes are immediately evident from the earlier editions. This is a larger work encompassing two volumes. The text itself is generously endowed with black-and-white angiograms and, not suprisingly, the cost of the book has increased substantially.
