I remember seeing that iris in the Breck's catalog, and if memory serves
me correctly, it was on the cover.  I knew it must be a misnamed variety
because Hooker Nichols had only recently at the time introduced an SDB
which I was growing at the time by that name.  Great Expectations is a
white edged mustard yellow SDB.
