Dr. May's deservedly popular manual now appears in the sixteenth edition. This new edition has been carefully revised ; some of the chapters have been rewritten, and new additional color plates have been added. These changes have been accomplished without any increase in size.

The book was translated into Portuguese a year ago, and it now is being translated into Urdu by the Osmania University, Hyderabad, India. This is the tenth translation into a foreign language, which is a remarkable record.

The manual is up to date and admirably fulfils its purpose of supplying a "foundation of ophthalmologic knowledge for the undergraduate student and the general medical practitioner."
