I received a link for this nice book from the scientific illustration list serv. The book is from 1903, author Sir Montagu Pollock, title A Study of Reflexion and Colour in River, Lake and Sea. The book is old, but offers some intersting insights into the physical nature of reflections in water.
The database can also be searched with other keywords (woodcut, print, etching etc.) to find other old forgotten books and ilustrations. In addition to texts, you can also find audio, film and music files.
