FYI, Amazon replied as below about my order for the Grosevnor book:

> shipped because it includes an item that has not yet been published.
> "Iris : Flower of the Rainbow" was scheduled to be published in
> November, but has not yet been released.
> We have not received updated information on the release of this book.
> Judging from the fact that our suppliers have hundreds of copies on
> back order with the publisher, we expect the book to be released
> shortly. It is not uncommon for there to be a delay of several weeks
> in the release and distribution of a new publication.
> When your order is shipped, you should receive an email message
> confirming the date, contents and method of your shipment. As per our
> standard policy, we do not charge you for an order until the time of
> shipment, so you will not be charged for this item until it is
> available and we have shipped it to you.
