This little manual of 1870 finely printed pages on good India paper fulfills many needs for the busy physician. The section on the eye is over 50 pages, and contains a condensed account of most of the commoner conditions which the general physician will be called on to treat. The material has been kept up to date—glaucoma, for example, being divided into the narrow angle, or obstructed angle, type and the open angle type. At the end of each section is a collection of various medicaments arranged according to their field of action and listed as prescriptions, with directions to the patient for use. It is a handy book to have around the office for quick reference.
