A fascinating account of a scientifically-minded man coming to the realization of his own colorblindness in a world that did not yet recognize the condition.
He made a pretty good (though
ultimately wrong) guess as to what was causing his deficiency in color perception, as he had no knowledge of our eyes' systems of cone cells.
Well worth the quick read.
