The Charm of Old Roses
by Nancy Steen

Since its first publication in 1966, The Charm of Old Roses has become a true classic, with secondhand copies often changing hands for several hundred dollars and with a worldwide reputation for its excellence.
Nancy Steen's name is known to many htousands of rose lovers the world over.

This fascimile edition, with new colour plates,is possible through advances in modern printing technology and demand from the United States for several thousand copies, helping to make it available at an accessible price and in a form as close as possible to the original.

Nancy and David Steen established their garden in Remuera, Auckland in 1944 and it became a flowering distionary of old roses, many of them introduced to New Zeland by early whalers and missionaries, farmers and goldminers. Many varieties still flourish in half-forgotten pioneer cemeteries - for the rose, above all others, was the dear familiar of the exiles.

This is a work of outstanding horticultural merit and interest, written after nearly a lifetime of collecting and cultivating old roses and studying their preferences in soil type and location.

Hardback, 1987, 261pages, good condition
