A treatise of one hundred and thirteene diseases of the eyes.

London: F. Kynaston for T. Man, 1622.

Although much of this is a translation of Guillemeau (No. 5818), the first 112 pages are Banister’s own work, “Banister’s Breviary”. He was an itinerant but honest oculist, the first to point out that hardness of the eyeball is an essential diagnostic sign of glaucoma.
