The Graham Stuart Thomas Rose Bookby Graham S Thomas
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Comprising three of Thomas' oft-reprinted classics, The Old Shrub Roses, Shrub Roses of Today, and Climbing Roses Old and New, this enlarged and revised version provides an excellent history of the rose world and is a truly useful reference, particularly concerning ancient species and obscure cultivars. Above all, this publication is a pleasure to read and look at, with exquisite reproductions of paintings by P.J. Redoute, Thomas himself, and other noteworthies; 23 pencil drawings by the author; and a fat section of fine color photographs. Includes practical information on planting, pruning, cultivation, and display. A real treasure at an eminently reasonable price.
