The first three are devoted to general considerations and the fundamentals of retinoscopy, and the last three, to a description of the velonoskiascopy of Trantas, as it has been perfected by Professor Lindner and the author. The balance of the book is devoted about equally to a description of static and dynamic retinoscopy.

The book is well written and is a valuable contribution to modern refractive methods. That part of the book, however, which is devoted to a description of Lindner's method of cylinder retinoscopy should be of special interest to ophthalmologists, because we believe that Lindner has demonstrated this to be the most accurate and satisfactory of all refractive methods, and this is the first
