"This new chromatic scale, alludes to colour only, by mixture of palpable materials, within & among themselves, the effect of light must evidently be produc'd by diluting, or mixing white with them, which duly comprehended, makes the above a systematic datum, both as to the descent of colours to shade or ascent to light."--At foot of page, preceding imprint.
