Abstract : This handbook provides the CIE Chromaticity Coordinates for five systems of designating colors. The five systems are the Munsell, Ostwald, Textile Color Card Association, and U.S. Army Color Card, Federal Specification TT-C-595, and Commercial Standard CS 1947-47. A sixth system, the Inter-Society Color Council - National Bureau of Standards color name blocks, is included along with equivalent Munsell renotations. In addition, a single table has been compiled of the five systems for which CIE coordinates have been determined, in terms ofASCENDING VALUES OF THE CHROMATICITY COORDINATES, TO AID IN CROSS REFERENCING BETWEEN SYSTEMS. This handbook will provide a means to specify exactly colors which have been designated in the past in terms of samples or chips in color notation systems. (Author)
