Thanks. Just ordered.
Glad you mentioned that! I thought that 'available Dec 2020 ....' meant that I had to wait until then before able to order/pre-order etc.

So when I went to that site just after seeing your post ..... it says ------ wait for it ... wait for it.....

Nice! That's what I'm going to tick.

Oh geeez!!!!!!! After I was putting in my details ------ the parts that says 'State/Province' and 'Country' includes only USA and Canada. What a let-down!!!!!!!🐡
I was gearing up to pay with paypal, and thought I would be done and ordered in less than a minute!

Any chance that I may 'join the ship'? Or, maybe, I could be Leslie's burden to shoulder?! ;)
Hahah.. Yes, I can help, NP. Hopefully David hears back soon. Then I can get another order in for you 3 before our Civil War begins ;)

Thanks a lot, Pete!

And, yes, I find it really scaring with a Chief in Command (though seemingly not of himself) urging paramilitary groups to 'stand back and stand by' - and concerning David, he is just a little bit better of with a PM taking fictitious control of their borders (though, yet, neither of himself). Soon he will live in splendid isolation, when it comes to buying orchids!

I’ve just had a positive response from Art about this book for all those living outside the USA and Canada.

David, thanks for your inquiry.

We will be posting a website in the near future for international orders of
The Classic Cattleyas. The book will be available for shipment in mid
December.
Say Hello to my friends in the UK.

David

Guldal, this is why I’ve been on a buying spree for cattleyas in the past year!
ive no idea how easy it will be to import plants post Brexit.
none of the UK vendors do catts in any meaningful way,

Oh geeez!!!!! 🥜

At least it is likely a forever keeper hehehe. I assume that includes shipping.

Judging from people's descriptions about the first edition, the 2nd Ed could be priceless.

I genuinely flick through the same orchid magazines over and over again - non-stop. And the only orchid book I own is a dinosaur ----- called 'A Golden Guide - Orchids', Shuttleworth, Zim, Dillon - a small paper back with a purple cover. Hand illustrated pics. Still my first and favourite book.

It still has the price tag ---- with hand-written 3.50 on it. Three dollars fifty (aussie dollars). Bought a really really long time ago - before computers and internet hehehe.

That’s because it is out of print and therefore only used are available. You know how people use that to scalp prices.

SB ---- I think OP sent them an email to ask them about the edition. OP reckons about 100 dollars. Not sure if that includes postage or not though hehehe

Ah, I thought you said $100 IN AU. Their shipping in US is quite reasonable for a large book.
Oh geez SB ..... you got me thinking now. Right now, I'm not even sure if OP was meaning 100 Australian, or 100 American. The American dollar is worth much more than the Australian dollar!
