    Abstract

    THE name of Abbe will probably remind most English readers of a certain theory of image formation in the microscope, perhaps also of some refractometers and other optical devices, but now that Prof. Auerbach has turned minstrel, and produced the saga of the Carl Zeiss Foundation with Abbe as the hero, protean, magnificent, we can scarcely escape the conviction that his hero's claim to greatness lies as much in sociology as in optics.

    The Zeiss Works and the Carl Zeiss Foundation in Jena: their Scientific, Technical, and Sociological Development and Importance popularly Described.

    By Prof. Felix Auerbach. Translated from the fifth German edition by R. Kanthack. Pp. iv + 273. (London: W. and G. Fovle. Ltd., n.d.) 10s. 6d. net.
