    A peculiar feature of this work is the almost total absence of any reference to the work of others. Saunders (326) and Farre (ibid.) receive passing notice, but the work of the author's immediate predecessors at the Eye Infirmary, Travers (379) and Lawrence (231.1-233.1), goes completely unrecognized. This absence of historical material provided the focus for the criticisms of the work which appeared in the London Medical Gazette [27:245-248 (1840)] and The Lancet [2:449-457 (1839-1840)]. The Lancet reviewer concluded, "Had we, ourselves, proceeded on the principle pursued by Mr. Tyrrell, we should not have reviewed his writings at all."
