This is one of the best short textbooks on ophthalmology available to-day. That it has gone through nine German editions and a Spanish and a Greek translation speaks for its extreme popularity among students and beginning residents.

The material is grouped according to topographic areas, and the text is precise, concise, and highly didactic. Of special value are the excellent illustrations, a good number of which are in color. The translation by G. Cibis is faultless.

The book can be recommended to any neophyte in ophthalmology, whether in medical school or residency or a family practitioner.
