@MsGinkgo:  I presume you have looked on Ebay?

or Etsy?

You could find something online, copy the bits you need, then print in a sepia  or grey toned ink on  the appropriate paper.

This one is a pdf of British Columbia trees

The Graphics Fairy offers a surprising number of images from antique science books. If you want to save a fortune, and you don’t mind a bit of DIY, you could use those images, design something unique, and print our your table numbers.

@MsGinkgo:  you responded while I was editing- adding Etsy. There are quite a few books listed at very reasonable prices. You probably would have to email the sellers to get to see an inside page in some cases.
