Burkart's Sammlung der wichtigsten europäischen Nutzhölzer in characteristischen Schnitten
Burkart's Sammlung contains a brief text on European species of trees, including pines, firs, yews, oaks, willows, fruit woods, and others, but its glory is the 40 plates one per species consisting of actual wood samples in thin transverse, radial, and tangential cross-sections, held between layers of stiff-card boards with cut-outs so that one can see the wood grain when held up to the light. It is extremely scarce, with only 3 copies in U.S. libraries.
