All Japanese descriptions and photos in the book Nippon Tsubaki-Sasanqua Meikan (1998) were added to the Register

Japanese Camellia Society had ever edited an important book in 1998 called Nippon Tsubaki-Sasanqua Meikan  (日本ツバキ.サザンカ名鑑) published by the press Seibundō Shinkōsha (誠文堂新光社) with 359 pages totally . This a comprehensive color picture book of camellia and sasanqua that still exists in Japan in 1998, including 2200 cultivars of Camellia japonica and 200 cultivars of Camellia sasanqua, for a total of 2400 cultivars. 

This is a very important Japanese camellia book. After several months' hard working, all Japanese descriptions in the book was checked one by one and added to the Register already, and all color photos had been uploaded to the Register as well (http://camellia.iflora.cn/Photos/Album/03270a26-f2cc-4ec1-8052-d24922ca04c0).  This is a big challenge because there were some big problems in the book: acutally different cultivars but share identical cultivar name (re-use name problem). So far, we had checked six Japanese Camellia Books already in recent years.

日本ツバキ協会,1998,《日本ツバキ.サザンカ名鑑》 誠文堂新光社,pp.359.  ツバキ2200種とサザンカ200種、合計2400種の園芸品種を収録した日本に現存するツバキ、サザンカの総合カラー図鑑。園芸品種はツバキとサザンカに区分し、それぞれ五十音順に配列。これは非常に重要な日本の椿の本です。 数ヶ月の懸命な努力で、この本のすべての日本語のDescriptionが一つずつチェックされ、すでに追加されました.
