Abstract This is the third volume to appear in the English translation of Hirschberg's historical series. (Volume 2, as yet, has not been issued.) The elegance of this book exceeds that of the previous volumes with its superb color plates, profuse and beautifully executed copies of woodcuts and engravings, and facsimiles of title pages of old classics. All of this suggests commitment and enthusiasm on the part of the publisher, JP Wayenborgh, that bodes well for the remainder of the series. "There is nothing else like it in the area of ophthalmic history." Professor Blodi has again meticulously transformed Hirschberg's German prose into English. This book covers the period from roughly the second half of the 18th century through the first half of the 19th century. It begins with a consideration of the work of German surgeon Heister (1686-1758), the founder of scientific surgery, as well as of ophthalmology in Germany.
