This book deals with the subject matter in a manner too complex for the student and general practitioner and too sketchy for the ophthalmologist. The author considers the bulbar conjunctiva, the cornea, the sclera, the anterior chamber angle and the iris as a separate division of the eye, and treats of these tissues alone. The anatomy, physiology and diseases of these parts are dealt with in a rather haphazard manner, without the system and order that one expects to find in a textbook. The etiology of disease affecting the corneoscleral calotte is handled fragmentarily, so that that phase of the book is of but little use to either the ophthalmologist or the general practitioner. The printing is good, but the binding is characteristically European in that it falls to pieces before the book is half perused.
