This book was written to fill the need for more advanced knowledge among English-speaking bonsai practitioners than had been included in the author's first book. He especially wanted to expand on the relationship between nature and the concept of bonsai. Like the first volume, this one too is profusely illustrated with photos and diagrams. The two volumes together provide a veritable encyclopedia of bonsai techniques.

Thanks, Ashkan. Music4cash Yamadori. Does anyone know where to get an electronic copy There is nothing left but very overpriced copies available. I tried to contact the publisher but they are out of business River's Edge Masterpiece. Music4cash said:. Also, much of what you will read in those books is basically outdated information that is no longer used. I've been told you're better off using the search function here on Bnut.

The book was written before As someone who gets a royalties check every month copyrights are important to me. If Naka's family wants to profit from the book they should license it for reprinting. Which would nowadays make it available as an ebook. I'm aware that a lot of it is outdated, but my research indicates that it's still the most comprehensive nuts and bolts guide out there.
In learning any new skill starting from outdated information is often more accessible than starting with modern versions. The algebra you learn in high school is not modern algebra, but it's enough for most people to solve most of what they'll encounter, and a high school student would likely be lost with real algebra which is really a graduate level topic Still though the question remains Mike Hennigan Chumono.

B-nut offers endless soil debates and much more, but no single member here can offer the breadth of bonsai design inspiration that John Naka still offers posthumously in that book. Hands down one of the most re-read books on my bonsai book shelf. Im dumb. Just because Naka was a great pioneer doesn't make him the be all end all Just one man's opinion. Adair M Pinus Envy. Just buy the D mn books. They sell on eBay from time to time.
Or Facebook auctions. Make your money back or maybe even make a profit. Adair M said:. River's Edge said:.
