On this topic, those in the U.S. who live near a Costco might be  
interested to hear that last night when we were there I found copies  
of a Timber Press book published last year entitled _Irises: A  
Gardener's Encyclopedia_ by Claire Austin for only $29.95 (instead of  
the list prices of $49.95 or £35.00). It even has a forward by some  
guy named James W. Waddick of Kansas City, Missouri. The flap says it  
contains 1100 color photographs, and the book is divided into  
sections of Bearded, Beardless, and Bulbous Irises and further  
divided into chapters kind of like the categories Mary Sue has listed:

Bearded Irises (of various heights, etc.)

Pacific Coast
Other Beardless Species (including Crested)
Interspecies Hybrids

Dutch, Spanish, and English

I haven't had a chance to look through it all yet, but so far it  
looks good.
