As photography of the eyeground has made great advances, the authors believe that an atlas of photographic pictures of the fundus oculi would be suitable for young ophthalmologists and general practitioners to learn that the elementary lesions in pathologic conditions of the fundus are comparatively simple and conform to similar changes encountered in general pathologic conditions. The apparatus used is the well known Nordenson camera. The great advantage of photography of the fundus, as has been stated before, is that successive pictures will describe the course of a lesion and at the same time give exact measurements of the lesion, while the drawings in color of the older atlases lack the exactness of a good photograph.
The photographs were obtained during ten years' attendance at the clinic of Dr. Bailliart at the Quinze-Vingt, and a number of others have been added through the courtesy of Amsler, Bailliart, Diaz-Caneja, Laignier, Mawas,
