Colour And Colour Theories
By Christine Ladd-Franklin Copyright 1929
Also available as eBook on:
This is Volume VIII of twenty-one in a collection on Cognitive Psychology. Originally published in 1929, the topic of this book, then, is the Ladd-Franklin theory of colour. Dr. Ladd-Franklin has been the first (and is still too nearly the only) physiologist to consider colour always in the light of the development of the colour-sense. This aspect of the subject is frequently reproduced in the present volume.
