This compact volume begins with a 25-page article on keratoplasty by Sir Benjamin Rycroft and is similar to previous volumes with this exception. The Year Book of Ophthalmology, as in the past, consists of abstracts of articles selected from the world literature by the editor. These abstracts differ from the usual type in that some excellent illustrations and tables are published, and there are discussions of each article by the editor and his associates. The material is organized into a series of relatively short chapters which permit a busy clinician to read a section at a time. A bound volume of this type requires more time and effort to prepare than simple abstracts; therefore, most of the articles reviewed in the current volume were published prior to the middle of 1961. The book is especially recommended for those practicing ophthalmologists who do not have ready access to a medical library
