The Book of Wood Names (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
Containing over 30,000 wood names with their corresponding commercial, common, and vernacular names, this book was originally published in Germany in 1936 and has long been unavailable. It includes the species, family, and area or country of origin for each wood. But its greatest value lies in the quantity of common or local names for various timbers, a topic of growing concern as the export of native woods increases. Containing Spanish, French, German, and English vernacular names, this book is useful for commercial buyers as well as the hobbyist or wood collector.
