for Lowrie 3 try out Stefan Wolfs website
http://www.angelfire.com/de/cpbooks/cat.html He sells Lowrie 3 for 90 DM
and has a wide range of cp-books and other stuff worth to check. I did
several deals with him and he is very recommandable. Volume 1 contents
tuberous droseras, Vol. 2 pygmy droseras, D. hamiltonii and a few
tuberous drosera not mentioned in Vol.1, Vol.3 is a great mixture of the
rest: Utricularia, Drosera, Byblis, Nepenthes, Aldrovanda, Cephalotus.
My personal opinion: All his books are excellent and I like them best!!
Hope this helps
