View larger image of 'The Complete Encyclopedia of Cacti'Subik & Kunte -  The Complete Encyclopedia of Cacti
This book is divided into sections by country, with only brief sections on cultivation and cultivars. All the illustrations - typically 2 or 3 per page, but some full page - are in colour, and many are of plants in habitat. Descriptions, cultivation and other information are given for each plant. Although there are a few typographical errors, this is none the less a very interesting book, and great value for money. 288 pages 2003 9 ½ x 6 ¾

In the same format and even larger than his recent “The Genus Sclerocactus”, this book both brings the authors understanding of these genera up to date, and also illustrates them very well. Based on 28 years of study, each recognised species is described and its distribution given. Much of the book is colour photos of the plants in habitat, and there are also reproductions of extracts of some relevant historic publications. English with a German summary. 2007 12 x 8 ¾ 383 pages

View larger image of 'The Gardener's Guide to Cactus'Calhoun, Scott -  The Gardener's Guide to Cactus
An introductory book covering 100 of the most attractive species with an emphasis on their use in landscaping and large pot cultivation. Aimed at the popular market, you have to like the common names under which the plants are listed – my favourite is “Lemon Pledge-Scented Pincushion” (for Mam baumii). Nevertheless there is much of interest in this book which starts with the usual introductory sections before going on to the plants organised by plant form and the information includes culinary uses! The colour photos include both plants in cultivation – in pots as well as bedded out - and habitat and there are some impressive clumps and attractive examples so well worth the inexpensive cost. 2012 9 x 8 227 pages
