Story

Between 1888 and 1913 native New Yorker Romeyn Beck Hough painstakingly assembled what still remains the most comprehensive collections of American wood samples ever known. Hough's 14 volume collection will be an invaluable resource to anyone who works with, and or appreciates, wood. In this facsimile of Hough's original volumes, 350 specimens of trees are presented in alphabetical order, and represented by three different cross-section cuts (radial, horizontal, and vertical), demonstrating the particular characteristics of the grain, and the unique differences between wood types. Also included in this 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.
