The present volume proves that anatomy of the eye, together with general anatomy, is not a static subject. In addition to making a number of corrections the author has added more than 80 illustrations, the total number being 323, which makes for more ease in the study of this fascinating subject. Research in recent years has made it necessary for changes to be made in the descriptions of the ciliary muscle, the substantia propria of the cornea, the vitreous, the zonule of Zinn, the distribution of the lacrimal fluid, the mucocutaneous junction at the lid margin, the precorneal film, the retinal capillaries and the central connections of the visual apparatus. The volume has a beautiful format, many illustrations and clear and concise descriptions. It deserves a place in every library where the slightest interest in general anatomy, and specific anatomy of the eye and orbit, may arise.
