In view of what the French have had to undergo for the past year, they deserve enormous credit for the appearance on time of the eight volume treatise on ophthalmology. The preceding seven volumes have been reviewed in these columns and this last volume conforms to the others in physical characteristics. The material here is diverse and in many instances treated in a short chapter of only two or three pages, so that a general compilation will have to suffice, as follows: medical therapeutics of the eye, ocular hygiene, legal medicine, ophthalmology in the torrid countries, comparative ophthalmology and ophthalmic deontology, which latter term Webster defines as "the ethics of duty." The authors responsible for these chapters are Bonnardel of Paris, Brion of Lyons, Caillaud of Orléans, Cantonnet of Paris, Chappé of Paris, Cosse of Tours, Coutela of Paris, Gunsett of Strasbourg, Haas of Paris, Liegard of Paris, Margerin of
