  The Tropical Plants of R. Burle Marx

Has any one ordered this book? I was interested in getting two copies but I
was concerned that they do not have a secure server for credit card
transactions. My attemps to e-mail them have not had any response.

I had the same experience with them so couldn't get the book I really wanted.

I found a great site to by and purchase books online if you have a credit
card. And it has a secure, site for purchasing books from too. I will
include the URL for you. Angel

Jim & Rob, et al:

I emailed Harri Lorenzi back in January at
He responded in short & referred me to the web page www.plantarum.com.br
for ordering, which I did. My copy of the book (which is rather nice, btw)
arrived in great condition approx. 8 weeks later.

Yes, I ordered a book with a credit card. The card did not go through and they notified me for another number and sent the book before they got the new number. The book is beautiful, all color in English and Spanish. Tricia

Hi Tricia,

The book is really beautiful, but it is in English and Portuguese... Not
so different, but maybe people can buy it thinking that it is in Spanish!

Best wishes,

Dear Aroiders,

Yes, Dan is correct: plantarum.com.br is not the biggest book seller in
Brazil. By now, they were most interested in distribute their books within
Brazil, so they may not so fast with worldwide internet commerce. In
addition, Dan was correct when he said that Harri Lorenzi is almost the
entire time in field trips or writing the books. He is the owner and the
bookwriter! (and also the field man) By the other side, his books has much
more research on it that most (fastly arriving) horticulture books I have
seen around. Just try this.

Very best wishes,
