This pocket-size volume is one of the Students' Aids Series, which is intended to assist the student in preparing for examinations as well as to aid the general practitioner in reviewing the various subdivisions of medicine and the basic sciences. The fact that it is appearing in a new and revised edition attests to its popularity in Great Britain. It contains a large amount of fundamental information, which is permitted by the small but clear type in which it is printed.

There are forty chapters, including, in addition to the usual systematic anatomic grouping of diseases of the eye, seven chapters on refraction, which are admirable examples of terseness and completeness. Other chapters deal with the ocular signs of general diseases, ocular therapeutics, operations, ocular conditions found in school children and the various standards of vision required for sundry vocations in Great Britain. There is a good index.
