Abstract

THIS charming little book reproduces most excellently in octavo size sixteen coloured plates by that master of botanical portraiture Pierre Joseph Redouté, whose magnificent three-volume work "Les Roses" was published in thirty parts between 1817 and 1824. In addition to the exquisite reproductions, there is for each of the roses figured a short account giving botanical and horticultural information.
