This second copy of Harris's prismatic color wheel shows some common problems for eighteenth-century, hand-colored images. The colors have aged differently and the colors in the whole circle look different from those of the first copy. Source: From Moses Harris, The Natural System of Colours . . . (London, [1766]).
