This is indeed a spectacular book and a landmark in the history of ocular pathology. Not since the three volumes of the Henke-Lubarsch handbook appeared 40 years ago has anything like this come on the market. There is no question that this work represents the most comprehensive, most thorough, and most up-to-date handbook on ocular pathology.
This book is a volume of the new handbook on pathologic anatomy (volume 12 of Doerr-Seifert-Uehlinger). The author, who is now professor and chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Erlangen, West Germany, used to be associated with the University of Hamburg, West Germany, and was then professor and director of the eye clinic at the University of Tübingen, West Germany. He has had tremendous experience in ophthalmology and pathology and had part of his training in this country. His main cooperator is the American ocular pathologist, Dr David Apple. In
