Volume 3, part 1, of Sir Stewart Duke-Elder's "System of Ophthalmology" on Embryology is a very welcome addition to our sources of information on anatomic aspects of the eye. The various sections include an extremely valuable discussion of general development, and problems of induction and determination. Others deal more specifically with the development of the globe and the ocular adnexa. The chronology of development and postnatal development are also discussed. A final, and much larger section, constituting part 2, and not included in this volume, will be devoted to teratogenesis and congenital deformities of the eye.

This is a wholly new book in the point of view of its text and illustrations. The author does, it is true, republish a few of the beautiful figures from Bach and Seefelder, but the vast majority are new illustrations of excellent quality, most published for the first time, and taken from many sources
