About this book

An attactive 2-volume box set. The first volume, "The Art of the Rose", provides an illustrated history of roses and their present-day uses, from their Chinese origins to the latest creations by Meilland and Delbard. It covers topics such as "The Origins of the Rose" and "The Family of Roses," and the final section is dedicated to instructions for care and cultivation of these delicate blooms. The second volume, "The Most Beautiful Roses", features eighty-eight of the world's most exceptional roses through photographs and text that cover the essentials: climatic and growing conditions, varietal characteristics, origins, and the symbolism related to the different rose varieties.
