Publication Date: 1878
Book Condition: Good
Edition: First Edition.
London, 1878. First edition. A good copy with some medical library marks in the interior and some wear and discoloration to card boards and a couple small chips to edges of pages. An important work. Using the "visual purple" (or rhodopsin), described by Franz Christian Boll in 1876, he attempted to make the basis of a photochemical theory of vision, but though he was able to establish its importance in connexion with vision in light of low intensity, its absence from the retinal area of most distinct vision detracted from the completeness of the theory and precluded its general acceptance.
