BOOK REVIEWS only of a peripheral, lamellar transplant. The second operation is usually a simple lamellar keratoplasty. Frederick C. Blodi.

PROCEEDINGS OF THE ALL-INDIA O P H T H A L MOLOGICAL SOCIETY. VOLUME X X , 1 9 6 2 .

Madras, Diocesan Press, 1964. Clothbound, 146 pages. Price: Not listed. Almost the first half of this XX volume of the proceedings of the All-India Ophthalmological Society, which has an impressively long membership list, is concerned with a symposium on perimetry. The subjects of the articles in this portion range from an introduction to perimetry to clinical discussions of field changes. The remainder of the volume contains articles on cataracts, uveitis, squint and, of course, pleoptics. Thomas Chalkley.

Edited by W. Buschmann and I. Hildebrandt. Berlin, Humberboldt University Press, 1965. Paperbound, 226 pages, 319 figures in black and white, 14 tables, references. Price: Not listed. The collection of 46 papers represents the most complete and the most eloquent exposition to date of the role of ultrasound in diagnosis and treatment of eye disease. The reports, all of which are relatively brief, were prepared for presentation at a symposium held at East Berlin's Humberboldt University in June, 1964. There are multiple presentations by the same author and almost 20% of the 46 papers come from Humberboldt University. However, this seems justified by the degree of activity in MOLOGIA.

East Berlin in the field of ultrasound. Further, the two most experienced investigators in the subject area from western countries, Oksala of Finland and Baum of the United States, are represented by papers. There are contributions from London, Edinburgh, Australia, Kingston (Ontario) and Chicago as well as from Eastern Europe. The presentations are both varied and authoritative. They are required reading for anyone planning investigation of ultrasonics and the eye. Albert M. Potts. By Ferenc Kiss, M.D., and Janos Szentagothi, M.D., Budapest, Hungary. New York, The Macmillan Company, 1964, three volumes, 17th edition, index. Price: Not listed. The first volume of this impressive atlas of human anatomy contains 316 pages and covers osteology and mycology; the second volume (229 pages), splanchonology, the ductless glands and the heart ; the third volume (326 pages), the nervous system, angiology and the sense organs. The figures, in black and white and in color, are printed on fine gloss paper, and the legends are in large, easy-to-read print. Volume 3 has a 16-page section dealing with the anatomy of the eye and adnexa. Figure 221, page 212, which depicts in color a horizontal section of the eye with its complete arterial and venous blood supply, was unusually helpful. Although I wish that this Atlas had been available when I was a medical student, I feel that it has limited value for the practicing clinical ophthalmologist. Joseph E. Alfano.
