The Old Rose Informant

This book is a unique and important compendium of some of the rare literature in Rose History, including the first-ever full English translation of the major written works of Jean-Pierre Vibert, pieces by him on culture, hybridization, nomenclature, exhibiting, and unsavory practices, as well as cutting-edge chapters by author and translator Brent C. Dickerson on the previously unknown first phase of many of the most significant rose classes, including Hybrid Teas, Bourbons, Damask Perpetuals, Chinas, Hybrid Perpetuals, Hybrid Chinas, and much much more! The reader will join in the probings and controversies as Rose Progress struggles with a proud heart and high hopes through the rich days when Old Roses were king. Dickerson's previous works *The Old Rose Advisor* and *The Old Rose Adventurer* revolutionized the study of Old Roses; this book,*The Old Rose Informant*, completes the trilogy and provides the capstone to his acclaimed and long-continued work. As is the case with few books in the field, the publication of *The Old Rose Informant*, with its humor, its new data, its many chapters of otherwise unavailable material, and its spirited and insightful looks at Rose Progress, is an important event in Gardening Literature. Also published by iuniverse is the author's useful and necessary research aid *Roll-Call: The Old Rose Breeder*.

Rose

Could a book by any other name smell as sweet? Absolutely not. The rose is the world’s favorite flower—and always has been. It is our greatest floral symbol of love and romance, and it is a bloom that touches our hearts as the flower most often chosen to celebrate significant milestones—weddings, anniversaries, births, and indeed, deaths. In this book, Catherine Horwood traces the botanical, religious, literary, and artistic journeys of the rose across the centuries, from battles to bridal bouquets. From Cleopatra’s rose petal–filled bed to Nijinsky’s Spectre de la Rose, from the highly prized Attar of Rose oil so beloved by the ancient Persians to the rosy scents of top perfume labels today, from Shakespearean myths about the War of the Roses to the significance of roses in Queen Elizabeth I’s embroidered dresses, and even to blockade-running during the Napoleonic Wars to satisfy Empress Josephine’s passion for collecting her favorite flower, Rose blossoms with the many stories of our ardor for this botanical family. Featuring a bower of illustrations and drawing on an array of sources as rich and many-hued as roses themselves, Horwood’s tale opens our eyes and noses to the world’s major rose-growing nations. With operatic tales of medieval bestsellers, nurserymen’s rivalries, and changing tastes in our personal flower beds, Rose is certain to woo both gardeners and non-gardeners alike.

With My Own Eyes

Five lively firsthand accounts of real life in the exciting pre-Yankee era of Californias rich history are offered in this bookfour of them world premiere publications, and all of them new and complete translations. This was an era not only of political intrigues and sectional clashes but also of upheaval as new ideas and attitudes came to a conservative Californian society. Piracy, kidnapping, lust, Indian uprisings, and scenes of battle all vie for the readers attention with fascinating passages about everyday life in the missions and presidios, governmental offices, and barracks. Governors are ejected, invaders fought, revolts arise, and plots hatched. While largely centered in Southern California, these accounts also bring us north to the Bay area and south to Baja California and farther. The reader of these memoirs will enjoy an intimate experience of life as it really wasa personal view not to be found in standard textbooks. As before with the authors previous foray into California history, Narciso Botellos Annals 18331847, the original manuscripts are rendered into a spirited English translation, capturing the nuances and vigor of these adventures in a land so familiar yet so exotic.
