This is a small, handy volume of 249 pages which is intended to serve as an introduction to ophthalmology for the student. Its popularity is shown by the fact that it is already appearing in a fourth edition, and the present editors, aware of the close association of ophthalmology with general practice and with the basic sciences, have brought the subject matter well up to date.
This little volume is quite complete, but it suffers by too great brevity, particularly in the fundamentals, which are so important to the beginner ; one misses also the great help of illustrations, of which there are only 38. The book, therefore, will be of greater service to the general practitioner or the advanced student.
