ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the history of the botanical illustration of roses and shows its uses as of 2008. Among the published books dedicated to roses in the early 17th century to the 19th century include "Curious Herbal," by Elizabeth Blackwell, "A Collection of Roses From Nature," by Mary Lawrence and "Roses," by H. C. Andrews. These rose illustrations are reportedly helpful in identifying varieties of roses. Botanical illustrations are also relevant to contemporary artists, from landscape painting to editing digital photographs.
