The new "Index ophthalmologicus," published by the International Council of Ophthalmology, contains the names and addresses of ophthalmologists throughout the world. Dr. A. C. Copper is to be congratulated on the tedious job of collecting these names and other data which the book contains, such as the main eye hospitals, ophthalmological societies, and ophthalmological periodicals throughout the world. The only objection which can be raised is that in order to find an individual's address one must know what city he lives in. In locating an ophthalmologist in the United States, if one does not know, for example, that he lives in Scranton, a long and tedious search must be made among all the ophthalmologists in the United States. In spite of this deficiency, the new index will fill a long-felt need.
