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.
