On growth and form

It is a book the way things grow, and the shapes they take. Here a great man of science  who was also a poet tells of the shape of horns, of teeth of tusks; of jumping fleas and slipper limpets; of buds and seeds, bees' cells and drops of; rain of the potter's thumb and the spider's web; of cylinders and unduloids; of a film of soap and a bubble of oil; of the splash of a pebble in a pond.
