|A member of our local North Star Lily Society (Minnesota) is organizing a bulk buy (for 5-10% off (depending on number of books) of:
The Lily Species and their bulbs by Pontus Wallstén
It was just published this year. I am quite familiar with the author name, as he contributes regularly to the Lilium threads on the Scottish Rock Garden Society forum. He is very knowledgeable. A link to some endorsements on the forum:
More info from the NSLS newsletter to NSLS members:
Consider this opportunity to order "The lily species and their bulbs" by Pontus Wallsten.

Ordering in bulk will provide a savings in shipping cost in addition to the book
If you are interested send an email to __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ .
I will maintain a list and send notice of final pricing after we have acquired
orders. Do not send money now.
Books will be available for pickup at NSLS events or whenever we can make an
arrangement to pick up at my home.
Book summary -‐An Identification guidebook on the lilium species, with
photographs of 113 of the 115 or so existing lilium species worldwide, as well
as pictures of 69 different sp bulbs, for ID purposes. The book also contains
extra chapters illustrating the rarer species not currently in cultivation, as well
as articles and contributions from various lily growers from all around the world, on various aspects of lily growing or finding rare species in the wild.
Pontus Wallstén was born in 1985 in Switzerland. In 1999, at age 13, he grew his first lily bulbs. These were bulbs of the USA bred lilium 'Connecticut King', bred by the firm Stone and Payne. The beauty of the flowers sparked the beginning of his interest in the genus lilium. Since then, his interest in lilies, and in particular the species, has grown greatly. Since 1999, he has grown more than 80 different species. In 2010, he established his small mail order nursery, Pontus Wallstén Plants, which focuses on Lilium species, arisaemas and cardiocrinums.
It may be a steep price for you, but it is definitely cheaper than buying it on your own. What would happen is you would pay the organizer, I would pick the book up and send it to you the cheapest USPS way (additional cost).
T-mail me if you're interested.
