Can anyone recommend a good book or source of reading on Coelogynes?

The standard book in english is "The Genus Coelogyne, A synopsis" by
Dudley Clayton , ISBN 983-812-048-0.
There´s also the PHD thesis by Barbara Gravendeel, at the University of
Leiden, you could find it on the web for free downloading.
There´s also a recent article from Kew about the confusion of C.
mossaie, grandulosa and nervosa
The most modern book, but unfortunately in french is "Les Coelogynes",
by Jean-Claude and Elisabeth George, ISBN 978-2-7011-5758-0
Even if you don´t speak french, I think you will have quite a lot of use
of Les Coelogynes, there are a lot of pictures and drawings and the
words used to describe the plant is quite similar to the english words.

There is of course, "The Genus Coelogyne, a synopsis" by Dudley Clayton.
It is rather like the Cribb (Kew) books on Paphs, Cymbidiums, Pleione etc etc − good reading I suppose, although I confess they (Coelogynes) are not my subject.

Thanks Geoff and Mats. I am getting more interested in this group and I would like to know more. I will try and follow up some of these leads. Anyone know of any sources of plants other than the few usual suspects?
