This second edition contains papers entitled "The Structure of the Vitreous Body," by A. Grignolo; "Electrophysiology of the Eye of Man," by M. Monnier; "Normal and Pathological Anatomy of the Eye," by F. Rintelen; "The Orbit and Ocular Adnexa and the Skull," by E. Godtfredsen; "Injuries of the Eyes," "Industrial Ophthalmology," and "Insurance and Social Medicine and Matters of the Blind," by R. J. Hesberg, and "Trachoma," by G. B. Bietti. Only the articles by Godtfredsen and Hesberg are in English; the others are either in French or in German.
The main objection to this type of book is the approach, which seems to be the inclusion of as many articles as have occurred in the current literature, without regard to the relative value. The chief value is the excellent collection of references, and for this purpose the book is recommended.
