'Reaching beyond the limited coverage of earlier popular books on orchids, this book discusses not only the well known 'commercial' types but the newly popular 'botanical' plants.  It is the most authoritative and up-to-date work available for a field that is constantly evolving under pressure of enthusiastic study and experimentation, and which includes one-and-a-half million orchidists in various areas of the world.'
