After Ray Stillwelll's suggestion hat I get the article on Zantedeschia
from Bothalia vol. 11, Nos. 1 & 2, pp. 5-26 (1973), I contacted the
Botanical Society of South Africa about it.  Yesterday, I received in the
mail a used copy of that issue.  It contains beautiful full-page watercolor
paintings of the species.  It may be the only time in my life I get to see
Zantedeschia jucunda in color.

My pleasure was doubled when I discovered that the article immediately
following the Zantedeschia paper was the Verdoorn article on Crinum of
Africa!   This is another treasure in the literature of African bulbs.

I have contact information for the Botanical Society of South Africa in the
Great Lakes Bulbs web site at URL =
