Originally published in 1940, and first reprinted as this second edition in 1951, this volume was written by the Nobel laureate Sir Charles Sherrington (1857–1952). To read this book is to share in wonder at the mystery of life, uncovered by a great scientist who was also a great lyrical writer. To read Sir Charles on the eye making itself (pp. 105–113) is to attend a miracle.
