This is a memorial number in honor of Professor Fuchs. It begins with an obituary by Sallmann. The results of several investigations are reported, including the effects of insufflations of air into the anterior chamber and the relative value of oily and aqueous solutions of miotic and mydriatic drugs. Another study reveals the efficacy of radium in closing recent corneal fistulas. There are articles on western ophthalmology in China and on ancient Chinese ophthalmology. Reports of cases include such diseases as xanthomatosis bulbi, hydrophthalmos in relation to facial nevi, chancre of the retrotarsal folds, ocular neoplasms, the formation of blood vessels in the vitreous and injury of the cornea by native gunpowder. The usual annotations and book reviews bring this excellent volume to a close. It is a worthy tribute to the man in whose memory it is published.
