The author of this book is well known in ophthalmologic circles for his numerous articles on ophthalmologic history. This book endeavors to collect the methods by which medicine was practiced in antiquity. Part I, comprising 429 pages, deals with medicine before the era of the Greeks, and Part II, with Greek, Alexandrian and Roman medicine, together with a chapter on Talmudic medicine. It represents an enormous amount of work and, in addition to being interesting reading, should prove a valuable reference book.
