This atlas is based on the German edition that appeared in 1963. The book consists of more than 300 beautifully reproduced color fundus pictures complemented by an explanatory text providing details on the history, symptoms, and pathologic findings in the specific patient. When relevant, the treatment is also discussed and illustrated.

The book is organized according to anatomic regions and begins with chapters on the ocular fundus in experimental animals, the normal fundus, and congenital malformations.

This is certainly one of the most beautiful fundus atlases available at the present time. To the American audience, some of the nomenclature may be confusing or unknown. Those familiar with the German literature will find it understandable that the terminology introduced by the senior author many years ago has been carried over into the atlas. We therefore frequently encounter terms such as "wet type of arteriosclerotic chorioretinopathy"pe of dry type of arteriosclerotic chorioretinopathy."
