This book is the fifth edition of a standard German atlas of diseases of the eye, which was first published in 1936. It was not intended to be a complete textbook on ophthalmology but to serve as a reference book for the general physician, who may be called on to treat diseases of the eye. The fact that five editions have been published indicates that it is popular among German-speaking physicians.
The colored photographs and drawings are up to the usual prewar German standard. The subject material is organized in atlas form, beginning with the lids, lacrimal apparatus and orbit and proceeding to the eye from the outside inward, in logical sequence. Grouped together in the discussion of each disease are the pertinent anatomic and physiologic points and short, etiologic, diagnostic and therapeutic suggestions. Wherever applicable, photographs are included of microscopic sections of the involved tissue.
