This excellent textbook on ophthalmic surgery is well known to the ophthalmologic world through the three previous editions (the third in 1931) and the two English editions.

The advances and changes in ophthalmic technic during the past seven years have been reflected in this thoroughly revised and considerably enlarged fourth edition.

The operations discussed are those used, with few exceptions, in the First University Clinic in Vienna. They are presented in a clear, concise manner, and the text makes most agreeable reading.
