      There's also this nifty book called "The Wood Book"... cleaver title, eh?   It’s a reprint of "The American Woods (1888-1913, 1928) By Romeyn Bech Hough.  Published by Taschen.  It contains hundreds of woods... and high quality images of the Transverse, Radial and Tangential sections... 
       
      Then there's the 'Center for Wood Anatomy Research'...  nope... I ain't kiddin'.   http://www2.fpl.fs.fed.us/   See... a federal web site... part of the USDA..  errr... Forest Service.  Not long on pictures but lots of good wood information and worth a visit...  It does have a fairly LONG dissertation on HOW to identify wood though...
