The plan of this handbook is to furnish all that the ophthalmologist should know about his specialty and the related subjects. In addition to a complete exposition of anatomy, physiology, pathology, clinical ophthalmology, surgical technic and laboratory work, there are chapters on pure science, physical optics, comparative pathology and the general treatment of syphilis, tuberculosis, endocrine disorders and other general diseases which the ophthalmologist encounters in his practice.
The enormous mass of information contained in this work, which is both a treatise and a book of practice, is made available and readily accessible by two tables: (1) a logical table of contents and (2) an alphabetical list of 12,000 items. In this list reference is made to a complete bibliography of about 600 pages, which is to be found in each volume in its appropriate place.
The system is written by more than 100 French collaborators who have worked in
