I was able to locate a copy of Panshin and de Zeeuw several years ago. I
ended up finding a very well-worn copy at www.half.com (owned by ebay).
Amazon.com has several copies available through their used books program,
however, some of these are exorbitantly priced (one copy is priced at
$495!). I'm not sure any of this helps you since you are in Britain...
Good luck with your search!

does anybody know where/how I could trace the following titles?
Panshin, A. J. and de Zeeuw, C. Textbook of wood technology. Structure,
identification and uses of the commercial woods of the United States and
Canada. Fourth Edition. New York: McGraw-Hill Book Company; 1980.
Schweingruber, F. H. Anatomy of European woods. An atlas for the
identification of European trees, shrubs and dwarf shrubs [Anatomie
europaeischer Hoelzer. Ein Atlas zur Bestimmung europaeischer Baum-,
Strauch- und Zwergstrauchhoelzer.] Stutgart: Paul Haupt; 1990. ISBN:
I haven't managed to locate them anywhere so I suppose they should be out
of print? Anatomy of European Woods (the large volume, not the one that has
only NW European species) is the one I need most. Second- or even
third-hand copies would do as well !
best wishes to everybody,
