Henry Curtis - Beauties of the Rose, reprint of 1st Ed., 1980

This reprint produced by Sweetbriar press combines the two volumes from 1850 and 1853. The reproduction of the original chromlithographic plates is exceptionally faithful. Curtis’ inimitable paintings, executed directly on the lithographic plates have a charm and brilliancy that many have compared favorably with Redouté’s work—less accurate in their textural portrayal of foliage, but precise in the number, shape and spacing of thorns, and superb in their representation of the flowers. 82 pages with 38 color prints.
