Timber Press has a few bulb books on half-price at their website. 

They also offer The Journals of Hipolito Ruiz: Spanish Botanist in 
Peru and Chile, 1777--1788

Is anyone familiar with this book?  Would it be useful for someone 
trying to grow some of Flores and Watson seeds? 

The description says
"Ruiz spent 11 years exploring the villages and botanical landscapes 
of Peru and Chile. His journals contain detailed, personal 
observations of about 2000 plants, along with his impressions of the 
culture and perils of exploration in South America."
