This is a marvelous collection of rose books, rose catalogs, rose annuals, rose magazines, rare fruit publications, peony and lilac publications, Brooklyn Botanical publications, tree, shrub and bulb publications and assorted, wide ranging botanical and horticultural interest publications which needs to find a new someone to love and enjoy it. This represents many years of collecting by someone who grew and judged many roses and grew and enjoyed many types of rare fruit. This person has passed and his family wishes to find someone interested in purchasing the entire collection as a single unit, and for all of it to be taken at the same time.

There are MANY books, some of which I have photographed here to illustrate some of the richness of the collection. There are boxes of magazines and catalogs. There is a complete run of ARS annuals, including #1, 1916, plus DOZENS of duplicates. There are even duplicates of quite a few of the books, some of which might well surprise you when you see their photos.

These photographs required three hours this afternoon to sort through and pick out highlights to illustrate what is included, and even then, I am certain I have missed important volumes.

Please feel free to circulate this post. Someone needs this collection and that someone must be willing and able to pay the owner (not me) a fair price for what will be received. If you are, or know of someone who may well be its next loving owner, please feel free to contact me and I will happily put you in touch with its current owner.
