Dr. Barber has had wide experience in the preparation of this book, which represents her notes and material in teaching embryology of the eye for over a decade. As Dr. Holman states in his foreword, "This book is neither a textbook nor an atlas, but some of both. While it is designed primarily for students and practitioners of ophthalmology, other biologists, especially embryologists, anatomists and pathologists, will find it a valuable source for material." The illustrations are beautiful, and the material is well organized into four main sections: (1) embryogenesis, (2) organogenesis, (3) differentiation, and (4) age-length correlation. The last is especially valuable, since chronologic and linear measurements vary in different embryos.
