This beautifully printed edition of Wolff's valuable book will be welcomed by all interested in the pathology of the eye. The older material has been carefully revised, and such subjects as diabetic retinopathy, retrolental fibroplasia, the origin of the melanomata, and the nature of retinoblastoma have been brought up to date. The author has made splendid use of a number of drawings of microscopic pathology which enable the reader to see at a glance the details referred to in the text. It has been the discouraging experience of the reviewer that only too frequently photomicrographs confuse, rather than elucidate, a text. Apparently, the author has been keenly aware of this, and the photomicrographs which he has chosen to include have been hand-picked and beautifully reproduced. The text is concise but all-inclusive, and covers the entire pathology of the globe and its adnexa.
