Harmonies of Tones and Colours Developed by Evolution
Each musical note is given an equivalent color, said to be based on the ratios of their corresponding wavelengths. The author draws her inspiration from both Christian scriptures and the scientific study of nature, especially the ideas about nature and evolution porposed by her great-uncle, Erasmus Darwin, and her cousin, Charles Darwin. A supplement to this book was published in 1885.
