Thanks for that. This is fantastic. They are great magazines. I have been wanting to read that article by James Fang on rothschildianum breeding for a long time (the one with the roth on the cover). There it is for everyone to read.

you are welcome, David ,
here is another set of "The Orchadian" magazines that you and everyone may be interested of


I have to say that , again , the Digitizing sponsor : Atlas of Living Australia and the Contributor: Australasian Native Orchid Society are quite generous in making these available to the mass
(the previous set is also sponsored by Atlas of living Australia but contributed by State Botanical Collection, Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria)

These slipper orchids' books are not downloadable , however you could still borrow and read on line , similar to borrowing from a library (it is quite convenient for people who do not want to drive to a library to borrow a book, or request a book from a headquarter library to be transferred to your local library to be picked up, everyone is on the "saving the planet from global warming" wagon now, gas price is also double of what it used to be as well)
1) Slipper orchids of Borneo by Phillip Cribb
2) Tropical slipper orchids : Paphiopedilum and Phragmipedium species and hybrids

and if you don't care for slippers (which is a funny thing to say, since you are reading this on the Slippertalk , they have 3 phalaenopsis books for you .

1) the 1st one is for the scientists , or should I say the phalaenopsis geeks, I am sure some of you would love this book

2) the second one is for the rest of us , the mere mortal phalaenopsis crowd , FYI, I absolutely love this book

3) the 3rd is for the brown thumb phalaenopsis personality that occupies our bodies from time to time

did I hear you say that you don't care for Phalaenopsis either ?
then , maybe a dendrobium would make you happy?

1) Dendrobium and its relatives by Bill Lavarack

2) Orchids of Borneo vol 3, Dendrobium, dendrochilum and others by J.J. Wood

I think if you drop these orchids , you won't be able to find them on the floor .
Kidding aside, I am in awe of Ms. Mary's accomplishment , these 2 books are thick , vol 1 is 505 pages, vol 2 is 676 pages.
I wonder if one of the author is the same lady , Mary from California, who sending out orchids that you order from Wenqing .

A compendium of miniature orchid species vol 1

A compendium of miniature orchid species vol 2

Thanks Hien.

Although I have most of these books (not the Australian Review), knowing these are available virtually is amazing! Thanks for letting us know about them.
