SCOPE NOTE
  • Wood produced from broad-leaved deciduous trees, varying widely in color and grain pattern; usually but not always harder than softwood. The examples that are most likely to be used as book boards on western European bindings are beech and oak, though other hardwoods can be found such as elm and chestnut.
