|Japanese Maples: Momiji and Kaede = Momiji
to Kaede by J. D. Vertrees (1987) 6.95
Please note I included a picture of the original dust cover as it
reflects the beautiful pictures within.
This book has no
dustcover and is a hardcover plain green.
Condition acceptable to good. Reason for the conditional rating
is there is some wrinkling from humidity on the back pages. This has
nothing to do with the 95 percent of the meat of the book. Beautiful
and detailed descriptions on Japanese Maples.
This is among the first books published by Timber Press, and after more
than two decades it continues to be one
of our signature bestsellers. A comprehensive source of information on
the culture, identification,
and nomenclature of Japanese maples, it describes hundreds of cultivars
of Acer palmatum and cultivars of
other Japanese maple species.The detailed index lists every
horticultural name published,
ensuring that Japanese Maples will continue to be the foremost
on this wonderfully versatile collection of ornamental plants.

LIKE NEW, even has the original place marker. Published by Sterling
Publishing Co. in 1992
Only thing keeping it
from being Like new is the Christmas gift signature marking on the
Publication Date: 1992
With 288 color pages,
this book covers basic styles, group planting, plant physiology,
cultivation, propagation, transplanting and re-potting, and training
and dwarfing-in other words, everything the bonsai grower needs to know.
In my listing for the
John Naka book I said: "if you want a picture book of bonsai this is
not for you.
This is! If you
grow bonsai you should buy this book, not because it is a a Codee table
quality but because it is so beautiful. Aside from Naka's books I have only
recommended one other as a top ten book. In fact if you love quality
photographs and the paper it is printed on. This is a must have book. I
have always despaired that John Naka did not get a better quality

Stonescaping A guide to
Using Stone in your Garden by Jan Kowalczeewski Whitner
Stonescaping is not a
book on bonsai, but a great guide to using Stone in your Garden. As I
was a Landscaper I find this to be a wonderful book.
“Very good to like new for a
1992 paperback book” 7.95
Hardly looks handled. 154
pages and nice black-and-white illustrations. Project instructions are
step by step and will leave you with a sore back just from the reading.
Garden as Architecture: Form and Spirit in the Gardens of Japan,
China and Korea [Hardcover]
Toshiro Inaji (Author),
Pamela Virgilio (Translator) $75.00
Used - Like New
Dust cover has some scuff marks on back but edges are uncrimped and the
book has not been
read. If the dustcover
has to be pristine I would have to go to VERY GOOD. I dropped the price
The highest compliment
which I can pay to a book is to say that it has a place in my "Desert
Island" library -
that is to say that
if I were to find myself stranded on an island and could only have a
few books on a given subject,
this would be one of them
It consists of a
cross-cultural comparison of the relationships between architecture and
the adjacent outdoor
spaces, in the
traditional cultures of Japan, China and Korea.

Trees of North America and Europe: A Photographic Guide to More Than
500 Trees (Random House Book of ... (Garden Plants)) (VERY LARGE
Paperback) 1978 by Roger Phillips, Sheila Grant
Used - Good Shows some signs of wear, mostly a slight
bending at the lower right corner.
Most of the books I am
selling are about bonsai but there will be a few odds and ends in there
as well . AS the title suggest this is a guide to tree identification
and has nothing to do with Bonsai. It has over 1,000 full-color
photograph illustrations, leaf, flower, fruit, bark and shape and each
tree is fully described.
The trees are ranged
alphabetically by Latin, but their is a good index in the back with the
common names and links to the correct page.

|JAPANESE BONSAI MAGAZINE FROM 1982 Rare and
collectable. IN JAPANESE
Good condition 7.95
In very good condition inside, but the front cover is worn a bit. The
inside of both of these magazines are in Great condition.
BEAUTIFUL JAPANESE BONSAI MAGAZINE from 1982 and in GREAT SHAPE. Minor
problem, I cannot read Japanese so I cannot give the publications
name. I am hoping that some Japanese speaker can identify this
and give me more information. This second magazine has some wear on the
front cover as the picture shows. The inside is great and both
magazines still have subscription cards, which I doubt will work
I believe that this beautiful magazine was a once a year publication
and to me reads from the front cover to the back. Only thing if so read
the orientation is opposite our own. The spine would be to the right,
not on the left. It is 170 pages long filled with wonderful graphics
and articles. The dimensions are 7 inches by 10.
I am starting at a price that I think is reasonable and I hope to hear
someone who can translate the cover for me.
