Editorial Reviews


Review from previous edition: "The novelty and skilled treatment of the subject matter make it a unique and valuable work. It should be in the library of every college, university, and school of optometry."

--The Quarterly Review of Biology

"Charming and excellent book ... Land and Nilsson are acknowledged authorities on invertebrate optics, and their collaboration in this book is a very successful one ... Their handling of the mathematical aspects of optics is elegant and remarkably penetrating."

--The Quarterly Review of Biology
