We all know Stern-Brocot, Dijkstra, and the Calkin and Wilf tree.
David Eppstein posted today on G+ this picture [0].

And Eppstein added to Wikipedia: "Even earlier, a similar tree appears in
Johannes Kepler's "Harmonices Mundi" (1619, volume=III, page=27)." [1]

Hope you like it as much as I do.

Peter
