Roses and How to Grow them: A manual for growing roses in the garden ands under
glass, Published in 1910. "All that is really necessary for the amateur rose grower to know in order that he may
intelligently make a rose garden, select his varieties and grow the harvest of
bloom, is told in this volume. Many books on the rose are more bulky, but the additional matter is not of an
essential character. In this volume everything not directly to the point of practical rose growing for the
American amateur is omitted.
A Book About Roses by S. Reynolds Hole, 1870. "I wrote A Book

nine months after publication of the first, has realised my happiest hope.... will be found to contain the
latest information and intelligence as to the selection and cultivation of Roses.
National Rose Society's Handbook on Pruning Roses compiled by the committee
of the Society in 1906 with 80 pages. "The object kept in view by the committee of experts entrusted with its
preparation has been to make the instructions given as clear and easily understood as possible, so that even
those who have but little knowledge of Rose culture might be able to benefit by them. It is hoped that the
illustrations, so admirably drawn by Miss I. M. CHARTERS, under the direction of the Hon. Secretary and Mr. G.
L. PAUL, may serve to render those instructions still more intelligible."
