Are there any good books detailing oaks of the world?

Nothing descriptive for the whole world as far as I know, at least not since Camus's rather obscure monograph Les Chênes of c. 1938.

However, there is a recent publication from Kew that gives a comprehensive listing of all currently recognised species, together with synonyms, literature references and distributions by country and state or province. Authors: Gevaerts, R & Frodin, D G; title: World checklist and bibliography of Fagales (Betulaceae, Corylaceae, Fagaceae and Ticodendraceae). If your interest is in oaks of the whole world, this is a good start. My copy cost the Australian equivalent of about $45.
