Bookshelf: Garden/Plant History & Folklore:

Book of Roses
From a simple wild rose to the wonderful creations of today, the rose has never ceased to seduce mankind. The symbol of perfection, it is the pride of botanists, gardeners and florists; it is also the inspiration of poets and perfume-makers' favourite fragrance.

In this book, Alice Caron Lambert describes the queen of flowers from different perspectives: symbolism, history, botany, the decorative arts, cuisine... Gardening advice and a useful address book complete this wondrous little work of art!
