This well-known work on the extrinsic and intrinsic muscles of the eye having reached a second edition, has been considerably enlarged by the addition of ninety-one pages to the first chapter and the insertion of twenty-three new cuts. Moreover, the practical chapters, 2 and 12, have had such corrections and additions made to them as seemed to be necessary to elucidate the theorems and hypotheses which the author set forth in his first book. These comprise the fundamental principles of ocular rotations and include chapters on orthophoria, heterophoria, esophoria, exophoria and cyclophoria. The attention of the reader is called to the chapters on the paralyses and pareses of the ocular muscles, and to the following chapter which in an original manner discusses the muscles of the iris and of the ciliary body, particularly in their relations to accommodation, convergence and other normal and abnormal movements of one or both eye-balls.
