In this modern era of fundus photography, it is somewhat surprising to discover a new book with reproductions of fundus paintings without corresponding fluorescein angiographic studies. The paintings are derived from the following sources: (1) Audio-Visual Communication Department of the Institute of Ophthalmology. Paintings by Tarrant. (2) The Hamblin collection of fundus paintings. (3) Atlas of Diseases of the Eye (Perkins and Hansell).

Approximately one-third of the illustrations are from the authors' collections. The fundus illustrations have been classified on a morphological basis. There is accompanying text and tables for each chapter. On page 34, a lesion of the disc resembling tuberous sclerosis is labeled, "congenital cystic lesion."

This book might be useful to general practitioners and medical students. Its usefulness is limited by the lack of histological and angiographic correlation.
