The Nokomis Group

The Nokomis Group is owned and operated by Noleen Glavish and commenced trading in 1990 as a specialist publisher of high quality natural history books, portfolios, prints, gift cards and original artworks by Australian natural history artists.

In mid 2018, we expanded to include a NEW BOOKS division in addition to those published by the Nokomis Group.   This came about as Andrew and Belinda Isles who own Andrew Isles Natural History Books made a decision to retreat from stocking new books and are concentrating on Antiquarian and Second hand books.  This new division is primarily a mail order business selling natural history books and we ship worldwide.  Our stock holding is substantial and if you click on the New Books tab above, you will see that we are offering a comprehensive range of natural history new books which is predominantly Australian but covers all parts of the globe.

Natural history subjects include birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, invertebrates, botany, gardening, ecology, insects, marine, biology, aviculture, entomology and conservation.   We are constantly adding new titles and will be happy to source any titles which may interest you if they are not already listed.

In October 2019, we have finally commenced our Bargain Books tab above.  You will be able to browse these very well priced books and order them by clicking on the Tab and browsing!  It has been a long time coming!

Regular mailings are sent to clients and if you wish to be on the list, please complete the subscribe form.

A Complete Guide to Native Orchids of Australia (New Third Edition)

Jones, David L
$220.00

This book, the magnum opus of Australian orchid expert David L. Jones, is a new and much improved third edition of what is already the best and most authoritative book on the subject.  The book has been five years in the making and the last book of its kind by this respected author.

The First Edition, published in 1993, was spectacular and comprehensive, describing more than 1,300 species and subspecies. Line drawings helped the reader to easily determine the genus of each orchid observed.  Australia is the world centre of orchid biodiversity, and now that our understanding of the subject has developed over the past quarter of a century, this new Third Edition contains many more species and photos, and much more detailed text than previous editions. It covers more than 100 additional orchid species, including some which have not yet officially been described. References are now included in the text, distribution maps are included, and there is a more complete and comprehensive introduction.
