MJ, try Balogh International. That's where I got mine. They have a great selection of orchid books.
I wasn't ignoring you, MJ.
I don't remember where I got mine. Balogh has them for $77 which is the best price I could find.
Balogh website. The book is about halfway down the page. While you're at it, get the Kinabalu book also.
And since you'll be on the website, get Orchids of Sumatra, too. It's a big honker! 1000+ pages of pictures and info.
And Orchids of Java and Orchids of Sarawak.
I have several orchid books also, but no good one on Bulbophyllum thou. I have Baker and Bakers culture sheets and I like those...
But for books...
The latest one I got was Harry Zelenkos Orchids of Peru, that is a great one! Many phoyos. Can be good for id-ing some plants, but not much info about each specie.
The best one I have is Orchids of Mexico by Eric Hagsäter. That is an amazing book. Everything you need to know about the mexico orchids and klimate and people etc. I would love to have this one but instead of Papua..
Orchids of Mexico. That sounds like it could be interesting.
Angraecoid Orchids, Species from the African Region
An Intro. to the Cultivated Angraecoid Orchids of Madagascar
African Orchids in the Wild and in Cultivation

Culture Manual for Angraecoid Orchid Growers
Culture Manual for Aerangis Orchid Growers
and a bunch of other books that cover less important types of orchids.
I want a photocopy of yours ... unavailable at any price ...
My orchid library is very small..to be exact it only consists of 3 books. I have Volumes 1-3 of the Cattleya and thier Relatives by Withner. I am always saying I want more books but find myself spending what money I have on plants instead of books becasue I get all my info on the internet
How did you come by vol. 2 & 3? I've only ever found them at over $150 each. Why the heck don't they republish these ?
I bought Volume 3 directly from the publisher for regular price about 3-4 years ago. Beleive it or not though I got Vol 2 on ebay for less than $20 (including shipping) and it is what looks like brand new condition!
You lucky shit!
This thread is several months old, but thought I would respond anyway.
Since you mentioned Orchid Monographs 2, but felt it wasn't as exciting as a book on SE Asian stuff. I was wondering if you ever saw Orchid Monographs 7? That one should make you happy! It's definitely one of my favorite Bulbo references.
Yes. I have 7, Chuck. I acquired it after I posted to this thread. It has some crazy cool bulbos. Most are species I'll never own, but that's ok.
Oh good. It is a great book.
I can't wait for the new cd or dvd of the New Guinean bulbos to be released. I know they were having money problems and it is already behind schedule. I really hope it gets released.
I was really fortunate to get to visit with Mr. Jongejan several years ago. We sat around his living room with his hand-made viewer and went through many of his stereo images of New Guinean bulbos. Absolutely fantastic!!! So many outrageous un-named species and in 3-D no less. My friends and girlfriend commented that they never heard me giggle before. lol
Lastly, were you still looking for the Van Royen book? I thought I read that somewhere , but now I can't find the post.
I've been waiting for Orchids of Borneo V for a while (in addition to the CD), but it's my understanding there were some health issues that precluded its completion. I hope they can finalize it soon...
Sounds like an awesome time. I'd love to geek out on PNG pics sometime. Wolfgang's site is awesome, but I've pretty much looked at all of the plants at least a dozen times each.
I am still looking for a copy of the Van Royen book. My solicitation can be found on Orchidmall. I saw a copy a few weeks ago and decided I need one.
Does anyone have an idea of how much a copy of the Journal Opera Botanica number 114 (1992) is worth?
It's the volume called The Orchids of Indochina by Gunnar Seidenfaden. Supposedly, it is out of print and cost in the hundreds of dollars. Occasionally over the years I've tried to find a listing for one, but no luck. Once one of the rare book dealers told me they just sold one, but couldn't tell me the price. Anyway, I thought maybe someone here had an idea.
Karen is pretty good at ferreting out books. If she doesn't reply here, you might try contacting her via PM.
I don't see it, on any of my usual places to look.
It sounds dumb, but Google is a good place to search from!
It's available from the Western Australia library, to read...
Thanks Karen. I appreciate the tips.
I already mentioned this to Karen in a pm, but I thought I would mention here that I have this journal already. I was just trying to find out the current going price. If anyone knows, I'm still trying to find an answer.
