"Guillie established the first ophthalmological clinic in France and became director of the Institution Royale des Jeunes Aveugles in Paris . . . the first such school for the blind in the world. The author chronicles the philanthropic deeds directed toward the blind up to that time and describes the first attempts at special graphic methods for the use of the blind. Of special interest is the account of his methods of instructing the blind in various crafts"--Becker 169. . Bookseller Inventory # 3011
