    The plan for a maze is based on Hayter's 'diagram explanatory of the natural consequences of equilateral union of the three pristine colours'. He observes: 'As the figure is entirely new to geometry and perfectly adapted to the purpose for which I designed it, I trust I shall not be considered too vain in endeavouring to render my claim to the invention as public as possible, real novelty and utility combined being very rare' (233).
