The British Freshwater Rhizopoda and Heliozoa, Vol. 2 : Rhizopoda, Part II (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The British Freshwater Rhizopoda and Heliozoa, Vol. 2: Rhizopoda, Part II I found the work to be on the British Freshwater Rhizopoda and Heliozoa, intended to be brought out as a small 8vc volume of about 150 pages with 38 admirably executed but uncoloured plates, which in our larger size of demy 8vc could well. Be reduced to 30 or less. It was therefore suitable for a single volume. A letter written to Mr. Tait, the main purport of which was to ask him if the figures or any of them could be coloured, brought a reply direct from Mr. Cash, which is here given. My friend Mr. Tait writes to me with reference to my Introduction to the Study of the British Freshwater Rhizopoda, ' offered to the Ray Society for publication, and your enquiry as to the colouring of the figures. I am decidedly of opinion that the figures should be coloured, and am so interested in this being faithfully done that I would undertake to submit nearly the whole of the species to fresh microscopical examination for the purpose, during the coming year. Very few would need to be left in black and white. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
