Orchid hunting in the lost world (and elsewhere in Venezuela) by G. C. K. & E. Dunsterville
Published by The American Orchid Society, West Palm Beach, FL. 1988. First edition. Hard cover with glossy pictorial dust jacket, both in very good condition; DJ has some minor soiling/surface wear with small tears along edges, repaired with archival tape; text block edges have some minor waviness. Pagination: xv; 280 pages; maps on end papers; numerous color and B & W photos; botanical line drawings, index. “The 64 articles comprising this anthology appeared in the American Orchid Society Bulletin, spanning four decades (1959-1986). From Angel Falls spilling down 3000 feet in a single jump to the hot, mosquito and snake infested tributaries of the mighty Orinoco River, G. C. K. “Stalky” Dunstervlle and his wife Nora hiked, drove, canoed, helicoptered, and otherwise explored many Lost Worlds – all in a search of Venezuela’s 1200 orchid species. … . Encounters with native indians, crocodiles and vipers in the course of discovering new orchid species make suspenseful and humorous reading from two of the world’s last orchid explorers.” [Liner notes.]
