In 1976, Buining had almost completed his book devoted to Discocactus when he died suddenly. His wife, G.G. Bergink, A.J. Brederoo, L. Diers, J.D. Donald and J. Theunissen then participated in a posthumous edition of the book that has been published in 1980. L Diers and J. Donald made the German and English versions respectively.

The book is 224 pages long and contains more than 140 pictures (color and B&W) and numerous drawings by A.J. Brederoo that give very informative details about the plants (flower cut, stamens, style, stigmata, fruit, seed, embryo, spines). 36 species are considered among which there are several new descriptions.
