I'm sure others on this list can supply more thorough information, but
here's a start.
If memory serves me correctly, Bioquest International was Richard Doutt's
nursery in California.  Doutt grew (from seed) and sold winter-growing
bulbs native to South Africa.
He also authored a book, Cape Bulbs (1994) which was published through
Timber Press.  Apparently, it is no longer in print, but used copies are
available.  You can probably find it in a good university library.
