6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By P. van Rijckevorsel on May 9, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is indeed an atlas, containing pictures only. These are in two categories.
1) Color pictures of end grain at 6,5x magnification: of this kind there are 1284 pictures at a size of 4,0 by 4,4cm.
2) The second category is of black&white microphotographs. Four per entry: a cross, a tangential and a radial section at 25x magnification and a radial section at 100x focused on ray-vessel pits. The micrographs are at a size of ca 4,0 by 5,5cm. There are 1605 such entries of four micrographs each.
This Atlas is a compromise in many respects, containing very many pictures in a single book. The pictures indeed are a bit crowded together and indeed are a bit small, especially since these are halftones.
Also the book is distinctly biased towards woods from (the vicinity of) Australia. For those whose interest is restricted to the more common hardwoods only there are better books on the market. However in the right place and at the right time this Atlas may prove an invaluable reference.
