*CRITCHLEY Gowers - a biographical appreciation - 'Like his senior colleague, Hughlings Jackson, Gowers was quick to realize the value of the ophthalmoscope in diagnosis. He used it constantly and learned much from what it revealed.... A special feature was found in the illustrations, line drawings, holotype and coloured plates, all of which were his own work..... "The Manual and Atlas" was very well received and became so popular that a second edition appeared in 1882...'.
