"The physiologist, the psychologist, the physicist, the illumination engineer, the chemist, each has studied the problem of colour perception from his own point of view and expressed the results in his own particular technical language.
Developments in the science of colours have not always followed a straight line and many of the recognised conceptions, having been formulated in different fields of research, are not conducive to a thorough understanding of the subject.
In the maze of treatises on the characterisation of colours Bouma points out a well-defined course. Starting from the established laws of colour mixing, he gives a complete insight into the origin and perception of colours in a logical and most systematic manner."
