Beautiful Vintage book worthy of any mantle piece.
THE ROSE HAS always been regarded as the queen of flowers. Its infinite variety of colour and form has led gardeners and artists, writers and sculptors, to present the rose as an emblem of nature itself. From the earliest times, we find the rose in-corporated in architectural decorations, in paintings (as the symbol of the Spring and early Summer), in tapestry, in jewellery, and in almost every form of the applied arts. In literature, of course, the rose has been celebrated more than any other single flower, and even in music it is a constant theme.
Peter Coats, a connoisseur of gardens and the rose, has gathered together in this volume the many different forms in which the rose itself and the rose emblem have been used by many nations in all ages.
