Excerpt from Animal Coloration: An Account of the Principal Facts and Theories Relating to the Colours and Markings of Animals

The present volume has grown out of materials which I had collected for the "Davis Lectures," delivered by me in the Zoological Society's Gardens during the spring of 1890. This book is addressed, as were the lectures, to persons having no special knowledge of zoology, but that general interest in the facts and problems of the science, which is now so widely spread. It contains hardly anything novel, but professes to give some account of the principal phenomena of coloration exhibited by animals. Some of the facts and theories, however, have not, so far as I am aware, as yet found their way into works of a popular character; I refer particularly to the ingenious theories of Dr. Eisig and M. Stolzmann. Inasmuch as Mr. Poulton's work upon the Colours of Animals, recently published as one of the volumes of the 'International Scientific Series," and Mr. Wallace's sketch of coloration in his Darwinism," deal with colour almost entirely from the point of view of natural selection, I have attempted to lay some stress upon other aspects of the question. The literature relating to animal coloration is enormous; so much so that it is really beyond the powers of any person who cannot give up his whole time to abstract it thoroughly. To write an exhaustive work upon Animal Coloration requires a sort of naturalist that now hardly can exist - a specialist in every group.
