Old catalogues

Jeff talks about Monty Byers last catalogue. This set me thinking (oh dear!).
Has anyone got a library of old catalogues? I know that the RHS Lindley
Library here in England includes some (including most of our old ones) plus
the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew library - but I do not think these libraries
are very complete, nor do I think that they cover anything other than UK
nurseries. Is there an iris catalogue library? What a brilliant resource this
could be, especially for researching hybridiser's original thoughts on a
plant, such as those quoted by Jeff from the Byers catalogue. Of course, that
relies on hybridisers being truly honest in their comments.
