The author of this well printed and well illustrated book on eye surgery is surgeon to the Moorfields, Westminster and Central Ophthalmic Hospitals of London in addition to his post at the world famous St. Batholomew's Hospital. He shows that he is worthy of these important posts by the logical thought and lucid writing expressed in his book. Twenty chapters discuss all phases of ophthalmic surgery. Each chapter covers the subject somewhat austerely but remarkably well and with adequate directions in text and illustrations. The surgical judgment expressed is thoroughly sound and leaves little with which to take issue. There are few textbooks of ophthalmic operations available in English, and this is one of the best.
