EXAMPLE No. 2 "Pecky" Cypress Used as Interior Trim! on one of the most artistic of America's great estates. NO. 2 in SERIES SHOWING "PECKY" CYPRESS IN MR. HENRY FORD'S NEW RESIDENCE. A CORNER IN THE "FIELD" ROOM: ESTATE OFHENRY FORD, ESQ., DEARBORN, MICHIGAN. MR. W . H. VAN TINE, ARCHITECT, DETROIT. You naturally ask, "What IS 'Pecky' Cypress?" Well, it's the innermost heart of the older trees, many of them as old as the Crusades and probably all of them ante dating Columbus. "Pecky" Cypress is the part of the Cypress tree which has been attacked by the rot-germs and has repelled and destroyed them. Vol. 2 of the famous Cypress Pocket Library contains photographs by eminent scientists showing exactly how the destructive decay agencies literally "died on the job" instead of multiplying, as they do in most woods. It's an absorbing and wonderful demonstration of the "eternal" quality of Cypress. And the "Pecky" part itself is (for certain uses) the greatest "buy" in the whole world of lumber. After reading Vol. 2 you'll want some "Pecky" Cypress around the place for its art value as well as its economy and novelty. JUST WRITE FOR VOL. 2 -IT'S A FASCINATOR AS WELL AS A MONEY-SAVER.
