Limberlost Rose Books Presents:

"The Encyclopedia of Antique Roses", Volumes I - IV

Limberlost Books announces the publication of the first four volumes of Bob Edberg's multi-volume work:

"The Encyclopedia of Antique Roses".

When complete, the Encyclopedia will document all old garden roses ever introduced. The Encyclopaedia will contain laser facsimile reproductions of all 452 chromolithographed plates of roses that appeared in the monthly issues of the of the French "Journal Des Roses", from January 1877 through August 1914.

Included are the original descriptive texts, in French, of each monthly featured rose, together with their English translations. The forewords are by prominant rosarians such as Madame Odile Masquelier, Mr. Paul Zimmerman and Mr. Milton Nurse.

The books use matte-finished acid-free paper, and being thick, should be broken in carefully to insure no damage to the spine. The plates are full original size, 8 1/2" x 11" sheets of heavy stock, with printed text on correspondingly light stock.

All copies are limited to 250 numbered copies, with the first 100 signed by the author.
