Scarce first edition of this classic work in opthalmology, being the work which established ophthalmology as an independent scientific speciality. "Beer was outstanding in his clinical practise and as an author. He was the founder of the first ophthalmological school and clinc" (Albert and Blodi), and he became chairman of the first university eye department of the world (in Vienna)."Beer is rembered for his text-book; the doctrines in it dominated practice for many years. He described the symptoms of glaucoma and noted the luminosity of the fundud in aniridia. He was a distinguished irisdectomist. many of his pupils became famus ophthalmic surgeons. Beer opened the first known eye hospital, in 1786, in Vienna."
