Wood Type Specimen Books

I am looking for a good specimen book of wood type made after 1900 to help with some identification. Anyone have any ideas?

Also, post the samples on Typophile, there are a few of us letterpress junkies about who might help.

Thanks for the rapid reply. I already found that page, and I already have "American Wood Type: 1828-1900", so it seems like if there is something out there, it will be pretty rare/expensive. I'll try to post some samples if possible.

Having trouble uploading pictures to the board currently, so the link will have to do.

I have around 20 or so pictures up on Flickr, if anyone want to take a look. More Wood Type Here
