The first edition of this encyclopedic work appeared in 1947, and it virtually revolutionized the study of neuro-ophthalmology in this country, there being no other text in English which so thoroughly covered this field. It immediately replaced the standard German text, by Willebrandt and Singer, which had been the bible for ophthalmologists brought up in the late nineteenth century.

This edition has all the splendid attributes of the first, plus an added ten years of accumulated literature. As the book has grown in size, it is unwieldy as published in one volume, and it is to be hoped that the publishers will make a reprinting, divided into two separate volumes, which, even if more expensive, would be appreciated by those who like to take their serious reading in the evening in a semireclining posture.
