Awakening the Soul Book

Post  Will Heath on Sun May 03, 2009 5:46 am

HAs anyone ever seen the book "Awakening the Soul" published by the National Bonsai Foundation? There is only 100 copies in print and it contains pictures of stones. I am considering bidding on one and was looking for opinions from anyone who has seen one.

Hi Will,

I 'm surprised that there are only 100 copies of this fine book published in 2002 and showing the many different stones that have been donated to the National Bonsai and Penjing Museum at the United States National Arboretum in Washington DC. I feel it was well worth the $40 I paid for this soft-cover "gem".

Pictures of stones donated plus complete descriptions of who donated the stone and from where it came are a "Who's Who" in the history of American stone collecting. I also like the idea that not just suiseki but also scholar's rocks are featured with discussions of each in the beginning of the book.

If you have a chance to buy this book.... go for it!

I don't know how many were printed, but there was both a hardback as well as a softcover edition.

This one is number 84 out of a hundred, but the may have been reprints, this is first edition. I has a slip case, outer box that it fits into.

Will,
This is part of the 100 limited edition version hardbound and in slipcase. The regular version was soft bound and no slipcase. Definitely worth a shot

FWIW, I don't think the paperback version is that hard to find.
