Colour Contrast in Photomicrography

Nature volume 85, pages 319320 (05 January 1911) | Download Citation



THE latest of the series of booklets issued from the laboratory of Messrs. Wratten and Wainwright, Ltd., Croydon, deals with photomicrography. This booklet differs from most of the more pretentious works dealing with photomicrography in that but little attention is paid to the instrumental side of the subject, which is dismissed with only a few words of practical advice, attention being concentrated upon the relation between colour and contrast, especially from the point of view of the photography of stained sections.
