Romeyn Beck Hough
(1857–1924). The American Woods. Lowville, N.Y.
Pub., and sections prepared by the author, 1893–1928.
[Volume 14 with text by Marjorie G. Hough. Volumes 1 and
2, 2d ed.] Volume 14 of 14 in portfolio cases.
Each of the 14 portfolios in Hough’s
collection consists of at least 25 unbound sets of wood
sections mounted in page-sized paper frames. The publication
clearly required an extraordinary amount of work: three
sections each of 25 sets for each of 14 volumes, or 1,050
slices of wood per copy.
