The basis of neurological diagnosis is neuroanatomy, and an anatomist with a physiological point of view and some clinical training is in a favored position to produce the ideal textbook of neurology. This book seems to be the product of that happy combination of circumstances, and, judged by the chapters which deal with neuro-ophthalmology, the author has well achieved his purpose of combining descriptive neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and clinical neurology.

The parts of the book which will be most useful to ophthalmologists are the sections on the prefrontal regions of the frontal lobes, the chapter on the cranial nerves, and the chapter on the visual pathways and the occipital lobe. Much new material is included, and the printing and illustrations are excellent.
