Cultivated for its medicinal and culinary properties as well as for its fragrance, it was so highly valued in ancient times that attar of rose was more costly than gold. Abounding in wonderful illustrations, this enchanting tome traces the flower's long and fascinating story--from the rose gardens of Malmaison belonging to Napoleon's Empress Josephine to the Wars of the Roses.
