Bentley was one of the first people to master the art of photographing snowflakes. The idea that no two snowflakes are alike comes from his work. This is a reprinting of a 1931 book, and the organization is a bit dated—it's pretty much just a collection of photographs without much effort to make them user-friendly or provide context. Nevertheless, it's an awfully neat bit of scientific history.
