New acquisitions: Opthalmology books

I posted last week about material we received from Casey Eye Institute and the estate of Dr. Kenneth Swan. This included lots of books that I started reviewing last week. There are some reprints of classic titles that will find a home in the library's circulating collection, as well as several titles that I've selected for HC&A:

Duane, Alexander. A New Classification of the Motor Anomalies of the Eye Based Upon Physiological Principles; Together with Their Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment. New York: Vail, 1897.

Landolt, E. A Manual of Examination of the Eyes. A Course of Lectures Delivered at the "Ecole Pratique,". Philadelphia: D. G. Brinton, 1879.

Morton, A. Stanford. Refraction of the Eye: Its Diagnosis and the Correction of Its Errors with Chapter on Keratoscopy. Philadelphia: Blakiston, 1881.

Schell, Henry S. A Manual of Ophthalmic Practice. Philadelphia: Brinton, 1881.

Smith, Priestley. On the Pathology and Treatment of Glaucoma. London: J. and A. Churchill, 1891.

These and other historic ophthalmology titles will be cataloged for the History of Medicine collection, and available for research in HC&A.
