Abstract:

"The writer had for some years past, in conjunction with General Festing, and recently as Secretary and Member of the Colour Vision Committee of the Royal Society, carried out a series of investigations on colour vision, and selected that subject when he was invited, in 1894, to deliver the Tyndall Lectures at the Royal Institution. The brief time allotted for these lectures-an hour on three successive Saturday afternoons-restricted the discussion of some aspects of the question, and confined its treatment in the main to those features most readily explicable by the physicist, and to bringing into notice the latest results which had been obtained from physical experiments. How far the writer has succeeded in the task which he then outlined it is for the reader to determine. There was no intention in the first instance to publish these lectures. After their delivery, many persons expressed a desire that the information they contained should be rendered accessible to such as were interested in the theory of colour vision, and in deference to that desire the lecture-notes have been re-cast in book form. For the reader's convenience the matter is now divided into chapters instead of into lectures, and a few additions have been made in the text to explain some of the experimental work to those who have not facilities for its repetition"--Preface.
