"The aim of this book is to present a condensed treatment of the science of color. An attempt has been made to cover as many phases of the subject as possible within the confines of a small volume. During several years of experimental work in the science of color I have been brought into contact with many persons interested in its applications, and the desire has been frequently expressed for a book that treated the science of color as far as possible from the viewpoint of those interested in the many applications of color. These applications are constantly increasing in scope and interest. With this viewpoint in mind I have attempted to treat the subject, exercising my judgment in drawing freely from the work of other investigators in order to make the volume as comprehensive as possible. I have referred to my own investigations quite freely, but trust that this will not be attributed to a lack of perspective. Naturally much of the text involves my own conclusions, but I have aimed to include only those that are supported by experimental data, because only in so far as they are thus supported does the work become authoritative. Many unsolved problems have arisen throughout the text, which emphasizes the need for more workers in the field. No attempt has been made to present a complete bibliography of even the recent work in this branch of science; but references have been given freely, which, if followed, will provide a substantial beginning to the almost endless chain of material available"--Preface.
