The ABS Bookstore

The ABS maintains a voluteer, non-profit "bookstore" of books and publications related to bamboo. The bookstore is dedicated to distributing as much information about bamboo as possible at the lowest possible prices. Herbert Hillary is the manager of the ABS bookstore. You can contact him at:

Books and Publications Available from the ABS Bookstore

The Bookstore has back issues of the ABS Journals. Volumes 1 through 5 and volumes 7 and 9 are $10.00 each. Volumes 6 and 8 are $15.00 each. The complete set of 9 is $95.00.

All prices are in $US and include postpaid delivery in the US. For overseas delivery, please add $10.00 per order to cover the much higher shipping costs. Please make checks payable to Herb Hillery and somewhere on the check make a note that it is for "ABS Books."


The Bamboo Information Center of the Chinese Academy of Forestry has a number of publications about bamboo available. There is a short description of each publication and ordering information here.


INBAR, the International Network for Bamboo and Rattan has a collection of publications about bamboo and rattan available. They are listed on a separate page so you can print the page as an order form.


Several ABS members, who are commercial bamboo growers, also have books available. I'll fill in the information about these sources as I receive the details.
