Treaty of Colours

Traité des couleurs

The book Traité des couleurs servant à la peinture à l’eau, written in 1692, is considered by some to be the precursor to the Pantone Color Guide.

The story of this book is interesting, and while you probably won’t be able to order a copy from Amazon, you can still check out hires scans of the book.

Of course today we have things like Adobe Kuler. Hey, it’s never been a better time to be a fan of colors! (Or color picking systems!)
