“The prism will deflect the red and orange, and form a reddish colored image at n. The violet, indigo, blue, green and yellow light, not caught by the prism, will unite at f to form a greenish image. When the prism is removed, the reddish light that fell at n, and the greenish light that fell at f, unite to form white light.” -Avery 1895
