In April, 1936, the author published an atlas of clinical radiography in ophthalmology which was soon out of print. Twenty years later, Hartmann, in cooperation with Evelyn Gilles, a roentgenologist, published a new book in French on roentgenologic diagnosis in ophthalmology. It was mainly to serve as a reference for the roentgenologist and ophthalmologist in solving problems encompassing these two specialties. It is this text that has been competently translated. The book is unusually well illustrated with roentgenographic reproductions and line drawings showing the main landmarks. An unusual variety of films of pathological lesions is presented together with pictures of normal anatomic variations. Techniques that are relatively new have been presented in the detection of intraocular foreign bodies. Generally this book is well written, and it will probably become a standard reference for the ophthalmologist and a help to the roentgenologists in considering ophthalmologic problems.
