Renowned American historian and leading horticulturalist Francis Parkman (1823-1893), briefly a Professor of Horticulture at Harvard University and President of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, wrote The Book of Roses specifically for American rose enthusiasts. The book contains information on the culture, training and propagation of roses, as well as descriptions of rose families, groups, and best varieties. According to Parkman biographer Howard Doughty, [Parkman] was among the foremost of American rose-growers. He is said to have had at one time over a thousand varieties in his garden, and The Book of Roses, which he published in 1866, was for many years a standard manual of the subject. Beautiful black-and-white illustrations accompany the text.

Flower of legend and mystery, the rose has inspired great artists throughout history. From Antiquity to the present day, poets have sung its beauties, sculptors and artists have sought to depict its delicacy, and perfumers have drawn on its subtle and captivating scent. From Roman banquets strewn with rose petals to Medieval poems of courtly love; from Madame de Pompadour's delightful rose-strewn interiors to finely woven rose-motif fabrics for the Vanderbilt summer residence; from Monet's magical garden at Giverny to Colette's favorite "Maiden's Blush"; from contemporary wedding cake decoration to bouquets by Europe's finest florists-- "The Book of Roses" invites rose-lovers to sit back and indulge in the beauty of the rose in all its splendor. No other flower in the world is as greatly loved as the rose. With its heady perfume and timeless appeal, the rose is more than a pretty bloom-- it is an enchantment for all the senses. This beautifully illustrated homage will delight all rose-lovers with its thematic chapters inviting us to enjoy the queen of flowers in her many guises. "The Book of Roses "retraces stories and legends from across the ages in which the rose takes pride of place, and examines its age-old role as political and religious emblem, and as a symbol of human emotion and experience, from fidelity to loss of innocence, from love to death. The beauty and diversity of the rose is shown at its finest in its natural environment, the garden, but also in floral displays in the home; in art, design, and fashion; in fragrances and perfumes; and in refined recipes for the gourmet. "The Book of Roses" is completed by an address book listing a selection of the best rosegardens, nurseries, exhibitions and shows, and rose-inspired florists, decorators, fashion designers, fragrances, and food stores from around the world.

From the author of the best-selling A Venetian Affair, here is the charming chronicle of his search for the identity of a mysterious old rose. Andrea di Robilant’s tale takes us back to the time of Josephine Bonaparte, as well as into some of the most delightful rose gardens in Italy today, brought to colorful life on the page in the watercolors of artist Nina Fuga. In his 2008 biography of the Venetian lady Lucia Mocenigo (his great-great-great-great- grandmother), di Robilant described a pink rose that grows wild on the family’s former country estate, mentioning its light peach-and-raspberry scent. This passing detail led to an invitation for an audience with a local rose doyenne, Eleonora Garlant. She and other experts wondered if di Robilant’s unnamed rose could possibly be one of the long-lost China varieties that nineteenth-century European growers had cultivated but which have since disappeared. On the hunt for the identity of his anonymous yet quietly distinctive rose, Di Robilant finds himself captivated by roseophiles through time––from Lucia and her friend Josephine Bonaparte to the gifted Eleonora, whose garden of nearly fifteen hundred varieties of old roses is one of the most significant in Europe––and by the roses themselves, each of which has a tale to tell. What starts out as a lighthearted quest becomes a meaningful journey as di Robilant contemplates the enduring beauty of what is passed down to us in a rose, through both the generosity of nature and the cultivating hand of human beings, who for centuries have embraced and extended the life of this mysterious flower.

New Series! Fall in love with The Late Bloomers, a series about five 40-something women who each choose adventure, travel, and love when they reach a crossroads in life. These seasoned women are ready to take on the world, starting with Book 1: Wild Rose. About the Book: Rose Quinn is having a very bad summer. First her 19-year-old daughter left home to backpack across Europe instead of going to college. Then a woman she loved like a mother died of a heart attack, making her feel like an orphan all over again. And in just a few weeks her best friend will be moving to New York City. For a single mother who’s always had someone else to take care of, Rose is finally wondering how to take care of herself. Handsome Mateo Romero is a transplanted Spaniard running a restaurant on Lake Como in Italy. A broken heart got him there, but he’s made a success of it just like he did his architecture business back in Madrid. One thing he hasn't been successful with is love. When Mateo hires Rose’s daughter for a summer job and gives her a free place to stay, Rose immediately suspects the worst. She won't let her daughter make the same mistake she did at that age, so Rose flies to Italy to confront Mateo. What Rose finds instead is a secret she didn't suspect and a challenge to everything she’s ever thought about love and the illusion of control. Rose’s daughter doesn't need saving, but can Rose save herself?
