'From Jericho, Vermont, through the patience and skill of Mr.
W.A. Bentley, many exquisite pictures of the snow crystal have
gone to the ends of the earth in books and magazines, and as
lantern slides for classes in art and design. And from far and
wide has come back the urgent request that all these pictures -
all at least of particular beauty or especial interest - be somehow
preserved from an otherwise sooner or later certain loss and
made conveniently available alike to the scientist seeking truth,
the artist searching for patterns of graceful form, and all to whom
the beautiful in nature has a strong appeal.'
From the preface written by W.J. Humphreys in 1931.
This book reproduces all 2,453 of Mr. W.A. Bentley's
extraordinarily beautiful photographs of snow crystals and
related forms that appeared in the 1931 edition by the
McGraw-Hill Book Company.
