This Year Book, in a compact and handy manner, contains an accurate review of the previous year's publications in ophthalmology, with an excellent index to subject matter and authors. The abstracts are well chosen, and in presenting the special topic, "Suggestions for Accurate Records in Ophthalmology," the author of the section on the eye, Dr. Louis Bothman, brings Elschnig's classification of normal optic disks and the method of recording lesions of the fundus, as described in Dr. Alfred Kestenbaum's book entitled "Clinical Methods of Neuro-Ophthalmologic Examination." The comments by the author are set forth clearly and are well worth reading. The part on the eye occupies 222 pages, and under the heading "General and Miscellaneous" are brought a number of important abstracts, of which may be mentioned "Vascular Basis of Allergy of Eye and Its Adnexa," "Ocular Toxoplasmosis," "Pigmented Tumors" and "Congenital Encephalo-Ophthalmic Dysplasia."

The book maintains the high standard
