This book was favorably reviewed in the Archives (10: 723 [Nov.] 1933) after its publication. The second edition now appears with several corrections and the addition of 60 illustrations, most of which have been prepared by the author in the pathologic laboratory of the Royal Westminster Ophthalmic Hospital. These include flat sections of the retina. The section on the blood supply of the visual pathways has been rewritten. There is a note on the differential staining of the rods and cones and on the structure of the iris.

The new additions enhance the value of the book, which is already noted for the lucidity of the text, the clearness and excellence of the illustrations and the frequent references to practical ophthalmologic principles. Wolff's book is an important contribution to scientific ophthalmology and belongs on every ophthalmologist's book shelf.
