This is an admirable atlas on the subject and is worthy of much praise. It shows in roentgenograms a profusion of plates illustrating tumors, infectious disease and systemic disease, which is so located in the skull that it has a direct influence on diagnosis of ocular and orbital conditions whether or not they are primary in the eye or the optic tract. It is greatly enriched by photographs of the patients, schematic drawings to explain the interpretation, anatomic diagrams and, in many cases, a map of the visual fields. The interest naturally centers about the subject of tumor of the brain, orbital tumors and those producing changes about the sella and the chiasm. All of the illustrations are technically to be admired. The technic of the printer is excellent.
The atlas appears in one volume and is accompanied by another volume of text in which the roentgenograms are interpreted.
