I suspect that David is looking for the book, ‘The Genera
of Aracea’ by S.J. Mayo, J. Bogner, P.C. Boyce, not the one referenced
below. First published 1997, ISBN 1 900347 22 9, Printed in Belgium by
Aroid books: The Genera of Araceae by S. J.
Mayo, J. Bogner and P. C. Boyce
Kew: Royal Botanic Gardens, 1997
This book is the first complete
taxonomic treatment in English of the Araceae, a large plant family of 105
genera and over 3,300 species. The aroids are very diverse in the humid tropics
and include many of the world's most popular ornamental plants. Every genus is
described and illustrated with one or more plates of original line drawings by
the renowned botanical artist Eleanor Catherine, as well as range maps and 94
colour photos. There are general chapters on many topics, including economic
botany, phylogenetic relationships, fossils, cultivation and detailed reviews
of anatomy (by J. C. French) and chemistry (by R. Hegnauer). xii + 370pp. 296 x
213mm. Hard cover ISBN 1 900347 22 9. The Genera of Araceae is currently
out of print, though a new edition is being contemplated.

Subject: [Aroid-l] The Genera of Araceae
I know someone who is looking for a copy of the book "The
Genera of Araceae". He told me that the book seems to be out of print.
Does someone know where I could still find a copy ?
