Looking forward to this. I have read snippets of the 1st edition and it's such good info plus amazing research on the discovery and 'story' of how each orchid came to be where it is today.

William, if you don’t have the 1st edition and you grow cattleyas then treat yourself either to this or the first edition. It’s one of the best orchid books I’ve come across. There are plenty of second hand copies of the first edition for sale,

David,
I am not on facebook (for work reasons), so please update us with the ordering info when it becomes available.
Thanks!

I have the first edition, and it definitely worth it to own a copy. I don't grow many classic Cattleyas and still love this book.

Will do Kate. I’m keen to know how easy it will be to access a hard copy in the UK

Forgot to mention ------ there is probably no clear-cut definition of 'classic cattleyas'. I haven't read the first edition before. I will definitely order a hard-copy of 2nd edition. I'm certain that it will be very good.

I wonder if we can request or pay extra for a 'genuine author signed copy' hehehe. That would be so nice.

In his last AOS webinar, this was option of both authors signatures was mentioned.

When I ordered my first edition Art signed it without my requesting it.

The first edition is limited to the standard unifoliate Cattleyas but had a "nursery" section consisting of the Laelias that have been moved to Cattleya (e.g purpurata). The history is maybe the most wonderful part of all of the sections, but there is certainly plenty of cultural information. I will be very interested to see how the organization of the book is changed and by any updates to the cultural information and the hybrids section.

The cover has a beautiful C. warscewiczii fma sanderiana on it - wish I had that one.

SouthPark. Send a note with your order and ask. You might be pleasantly surprised.
It’s on their website now for pre-order with a December release. There is a box to check if you want it signed.
