James Clerk MAXWELL

On Colour Vision

Notices of the Proceedings at the Meetings of the Members of the Royal Institution of Great Britain with Abstracts of the Discourses delivered at the Evening Meetings, 1871, March p 260-271.

This is a text of a demonstration lecture given by the author in 1871 at the Royal Institution of Great Britain. He observes that the science of colour is both a mental science in which our own nature determines the laws of colour observation and a physical science where clearly defined laws of nature can be applied.
