Romeyn B. Hough. The Woodbook


Description

For the love of trees, this is an illustrated encyclopedia of wood types. Culled and assembled by Romeyn Beck Hough between 1888 and 1913 in what still remains a stunning and unparalleled achievement, American Woods - originally published in 14 volumes, with actual specimens mounted on card stock - is a work of breathtaking beauty that has set the standard for the study of trees and wood. TASCHEN's Woodbook reproduces, in painstaking facsimile, all of the specimen pages from the original volumes; for this purpose we have obtained the use of an extremely rare original set of volumes in very good condition, with minimal damage to the wood cuts. For all trees, now arranged in alphabetical order, three different cross-section cuts of wood are represented (radial, horizontal, and vertical), demonstrating the particular characteristics of the grain and the wealth of colors and textues to be found among the many different wood types. Also included in this special edition are lithographs by Charles Sprague Sargent of the leaves and nuts of most trees, as well as texts describing the trees' geographical origins and physical characteristics. Interior designers, craftspeople, nature enthusiasts, and artists alike will enjoy this beautiful collection of wood samples which includes many trees that are now very rare or completely extinct.

* To encourage reflection on main themes addressed and spur critical thinking, discussion questions and links to further reading are included in each chapter. This accessible yet rigorous text provides students with an in-depth overview of all the factors and issues which are important to consider to make a destination successful. Romeyn B. Hough. The Woodbook download ebook pdf Our first seahorse imaginings appeared six thousand years ago on cave walls in Australia. The ancient Greeks called the seahorse "hippocampus" (half-horse, half-fish) and sent it galloping through the oceans of mythology, pulling the sea god Poseidon's golden chariot. The seahorse has even been the center of a modern-day international art scandal: A two-thousand-year-old winged seahorse brooch was plundered by Turkish tomb raiders and sold to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
