Twenty-seven colored samples, with guard tissues, mounted on each plate. "In the present work the possibility of variation between different copies is wholly eliminated ... Each color, for the entire edition, is painted uniformly on large sheets of paper from a single mixture of pigments, these sheets being then cut into small squares which represent the colors on the plates"--P. 13.

Contents: (from table of contents) Plan -- Color names -- Color terms -- Table of percentages of component colors in spectrum hues -- Table of percentages of white and black in tone scales -- Table of percentages of neutral gray in broken colors -- Table of percentages of black and white in tones of carbon gray -- Dyes and pigments used in coloring of Maxwell disks -- Alphabetical list of colors represented on plates -- Colors of old edition not represented on plates -- List of useful books on color.
