First edition of this beautifully produced book, with the deep-etched rose images. This copy is highly collectable: signed by the author on the verso page, and with the signature and address of Valerie Swane written neatly in ink on the front free endpaper. Valerie was renowned for her encyclopedic knowledge and instant recall of horticultural matters on her weekly radio show, and a much-loved member of the Australian gardening fraternity for her warmth and accessability. The author of two books on roses, and many more on other gardening matters, she was a member of the famous Swane family and Managing Director of the company with its important Sydney nursery at Dural.
