In response to Iain Brodie's inquiry, the book "Lilies: A guide for growers 
and collectors" by Edward Austin McRae (another Scot, but living in the 
United States for many years) contains a wealth of information on the genus 
Lilium proper. It was publishsed by Timber Press in 1998 and should still 
be available from booksellers. I was privileged to assist Eddie McRae in 
preparing it for publication and was overwhelmed by the depth of his 
knowledge of lilies and the lily-growing world.

The book doesn't touch much on lily allies, except Cardiocrinum. The back 
issues of the Scottish Rock Garden Club's magazine are a rich source of 
information on Nomocharis, in particular.
