1 What Wood is That?
Schwankl, Alfred
New York Studio Publications / Thomas Y. Crowell 1956 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover Fine Near Fine Jacket 
First Edition - clean "as new" softcover book contained within hardcover cloth cover with slot for ten plates (all present) with 40 actual wood specimens, clean original dust jacket. Softcover book is unworn - no creasing, chipping or fading -- is 164 pages with index and contains 125 illustrations. All pages are clean and bright, with no marks of any kind. 10 plates with four actual wood samples on each plate are clean and in excellent condition. Translated, with a Preface, by H. L. Edlin. Dust jacket is unchipped, clean and bright, with one very short closed edge tear. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. This book, in addition to its 150 illustrations and diagrams, includes 40 actual samples of the woods described which reveal the finer points of grain and color that count for so much. Taken in conjunction with the author's cleverly contrived keys and clear descriptions, the book enables anyone to recognize and identify the most important timbers grown in Britain, Europe, North america and the temperate regions of Asia, as well as some of the better known woods that are imported from the tropics. 025137
