Within the appointed time has appeared the final volume of the so-called Short Handbook of Ophthalmology, concluding a monumental work that is undoubtedly the most valuable reference series in ophthalmology that has ever appeared. This statement is made advisedly, for although the Kurzes Handbuch has not the voluminosity, the elaborate bibliography or the discussion of case reports that characterize the Graefe-Saemisch Handbuch der gesamten Augenheilkunde, it has the advantage of being brought down to the present and has been completed within a reasonable time. The cost is high, averaging about 140 marks per volume, but the value is there. This volume, labeled the second, contains the following divisions: Physiology of the Nutrition and Circulation of the Eye, by Otto Weiss of Königsberg; Morphologic Changes in the Retina Under the Influence of Light, by Karl vom Hofe of Cologne; The Visual Purple and Chemical Changes in the Retina, by Rudolf Dittler
