I imagine the book you are referring to is Fritz Kohlein's "IRIS". I have this 
book but have not had the time to read the whole thing. I have been favorably 
impressed with what I have so far read. This book seems to be well put 
together and easy for anyone to read. It has good technical information which 
is written in laymans terms. Good History information, good planting 
information, good information on all varieties of Iris and good Hybridizing 
information. In fact I was reading on Hybridizing last night and if I had read 
this sooner I would not have had to ask the questions I did about saving 
The book also has wonderful pictures with descriptions and many drawings and 
diagrams for illustration. 

Hope this is helpful information to you.
