In 1692 Dutch artist A. Boogert crafted a single copy 800-page book on mixing watercolours. Not only did he provide samples of every possible colour combination imaginable, he also included the 'recipe' for creating those colours. This immediately calls to mind a Pantone colour sample book available to designers and printers today, however the first Pantone book wasn't created until 1963. The amount of time and effort that Boogert would have put into this handwritten and painted educational book is unfathomable. http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2014/05/color-book/
