In this revised edition Dr. Gifford has given consideration particularly to the use of such newer therapeutic agents as sulfanilamide, heparin, thiamine hydrochloride, riboflavin and other vitamins. The publishers report that the chapter on the sclera has been entirely rewritten and that there is a complete revised discussion of diseases of the cardiovascular renal system. The first edition of this shorter textbook of ophthalmology was most successful, which no doubt prompted the publication of a new edition. Particularly to be commended are the numerous excellent illustrations, many of them in color. For the specialists as well as for the general practitioners these colored plates are an invaluable aid.
