    I have a number of the books already listed as favorites and agree with
the plaudits, but I would like to add a few to the list.

A must-have for cyrtanthus growers:  A Review of the Southern African
Species of Cyrtanthus by Reid and Dyer available from IBS

Thad Howard's recent book, Bulbs for Warm Climates, especially his
discussions of rhodophialas and rainlilies. (University of Texas Press)

John Bryan's RHS Manual of Bulbs, which is out-of-date compared to his
wonderfully colorful, new Bulbs, but which I know better when it comes to
checking nomenclature and spelling. (Timber Press)

My first bulb book, Bulbs: A Complete Handbook by Roy Genders
(Bobbs-Merrill) an old standby which still has some useful information.

And on the same note, the IPNI search site on the web (http://www.ipni.org/), though
a book only in the electronic sense and more properly included with the
favorite URL TOW coming up.

Best wishes,

--Dell Sherk, Director, Pacific BX
