WOODS WE LIVE WITH – A Guide to the Identification of Wood in the Home by Nancy and Herbert Schiffer, Schiffer Ltd., PA, 1977. 
This early book is an invaluable aid to the serious collector, dealer, curator, or appraiser of antique furniture.  Superb color photographs and actual samples of 26 different wood types will assist the leader in identifying wood types, their origins, and treatment.  Profusely illustrated, this unique source book shows comparative color plates showing wood finishes, stains and oxidation.    “The color section in this book shows not only the woods most frequently used for cabinet making and building, but also woods oxidized and aged.  The pictures of secondary woods in oxidized condition and finished old primary wood surfaces has never been presented before.  Twenty six actual samples of wood are here for your touch and inspection.  The authors have pictured wood that you have the greatest chance of seeing and handling.”
