The Mini Archive series is a new series capturing the best of the best of ancient, rare, and significant volumes. Each book in the series will focus on a single topic through abundant illustration and documentation. The topics will cover a wide range of subjects including art, architecture, fashion, heraldry, geography, navigation, medicine, and the natural world. Drawing from the roses depicted in Pierre Joseph Redoute's three volume masterpiece, "Les Roses" (first published in installments between 1817 and 1824) and James Sowerby's thirty-six volume botanical monolith "English Botany" (1790-1813), "Roses" will feature 170 of both artists' magnificent hand-colored engravings in all their blooming glory. To bring this lovely volume into the 21st Century, the paperback format and low price will keep the book fun and affordable. A visual index will categorize each rose according to name, species, class, and genome; and an accompanying DVD containing all of the images in the book (in Tiff and Jpeg format) will be supplied copyright free to be used in any manner the reader sees fit, completing this unique package. "Roses" will appeal to horticulturists, collectors, students, teachers, artists and rose-lovers alike, for no one will be able to resist the undeniable beauty of these two artists' absolutely breathtaking illustrations.
