To supply the information that is not contained in the textbooks on ophthalmology without the time and labor required to study the large systems and encyclopedias, the editors believe that this publication, limited to seven volumes, will fill a definite void. Literary references have been restricted, and theoretical discussions avoided. At the same time each subject receives a complete survey, and close relation to contiguous branches is stressed. The entire work is to be completed before the end of 1932, and the price is not to exceed 1,000 marks. Each volume can be bought separately. The following two volumes have appeared :

Volume 1 : Anatomy. Embryology, Malformations, Hereditary Diseases. Price, 134 marks. Pp. 900, with 432 illustrations, some in color.

This volume consists of : Anatomy of the Human Eye, by Prof. P. Eisler, Halle, a. S.; The Connection of the Eye and the Central Nervous System, by Prof. R. A. Pfeifer,
