This monograph on the diseases caused by light is introduced by a description of light, the spectrum and the absorption of the different radiations under normal and pathologic conditions. The author takes up the study of sensitiveness to light and describes a large variety of illnesses caused by light. He classifies the diseases caused by light and discusses some of them as caused by different specific rays of light. He distinguishes between the red and infra-red ends of the spectrum and the violet and ultraviolet portions. The book is beautifully illustrated and because of this and the author's extensive study and experience is well worthy of translation into English and worthy of a place in the library of those who read French.
