Hey folks,

If you are a Nepenthes fan, you really should consider buying a copy of
the "Skeletal Revision of Nepenthes" by Jebb and Cheek. This originally
appeared volume 42 of the journal "Blumea." In the past there has been
some interest in how to obtain it, so I include it here (the description
is not my own):

Jebb, M & M. Cheek. A skeletal revision of Nepenthes (Nepenthaceae). Blumea
volume 42, No. 1. 1997. pp. 1-106: A world revision of the genus is
presented to accompany a family account for the Flora. of Malesiana. 82
species are recognized, of which 74 occur in the Malesiana region. 6 species
are described as new, 1 species if raised from infraspecific status, and 5
species are restored from synonymy. Many names are typified for the first
time. Full descriptions are given for 6 new and 7 recircumscribed species.
Critical notes are supplied for all species. An index to all published names
and an index to exsiccatae (herbarium specimens) are given. In addition,
there are keys to species arranged by islands (Sumatra, Borneo, Molucca,
etc. Each species account includes the name, authors, original citation,
type specimen, distribution, notes, ecology (short). several line figures,
some B&W photos, and maps. paperback. $35.00 plus $5 for shipping.
