Wood Book

"A representation of inland and foreign wood, as well trees and shrubs, which, are collected by the lovers of natural history in their cabinets of natural curiosities for use and pleasure."

These illustrations of wooden boards come from the "Houtkunde" published in 1773 by John Christian Sepp. The full digitilized version of the book, with more than 100 colored prints and descriptions of different woods, can be found at the TU Delft Library.
