External Diseases of the Eye.

Arch Ophthalmol. 1934;12(3):461. doi:10.1001/archopht.1934.00830160165019

The author has limited his subject to ocular diseases which may be diagnosed without the ophthalmoscope. The most remarkable feature of the book is its illustrations. These have been collected from the author's own cases and, with due acknowledgment, from American and European authors. They present a collection of ordinary and rare conditions which is to be found in no other textbook of this size. The quality of the illustrations varies, many photographs being excellent, while the drawings are in many cases not so successful.

Such conditions as ocular pemphigus, cyst of the orbit following implant of fat, sporotrichosis of the eyelids and many other unusual conditions are described. Some of the author's wax models here reproduced are excellent.

In the attempt to cover practically all the conditions in the field, the amount of space given to common conditions is often much too limited. Many operations are described too
