Pantone Colours

We now have Pantone references for printing colours, however there is an 800 page book created by A. Boogert back in 1692 that listed every colour imaginable and explanations on how to change colour tones and hues.

Ironically the colour book was meant to be an educational guide but only 1 copy was ever produced so very few people will have seen it.
The book is located in provence, France
