	The little book by Susan Berry is the most interesting to me. I 
was up until 2 AM reading both books! The Grosvenor book was a disappointment
since I had heard of him and expected more. Altho, it would be a good 
book for someone just started out with irises. He does have lists of 
cultivars classed according to variety and color but a really short listing.
	The Berry book is smaller but crammed with interesting historical
facts and Brian Mathew's photos of irises. I finally got to see I. 
chrysographes in color. (purple & gold)

Press in 1987.   $37.50    (I know where a couple copies can be found for 
half price)... > 

	Ok, I would like it *if* it is worthwhile....I promised myself that
the next gardening book would be about Lilium...but....
