Rose Annuals...

I am having a very difficult time finding any rose annuals beyond 1990. Is there a specific reason? Is that the last publication? Hopefully not… I’ve made a very good collection so far. Here’s what I have so far:

'16, '25, '26, '27, '28, '38, '42, '44, '49, '50, '52, '56, '57, '58, '65 all the way to 1990.

I’ve already scanned the some of the older annuals pages so that I don’t have open them when I want to read them. Some of the stuff is VERY intresting, and I only wish that the ARS could actually compile the whole series as one book, or at least in series seperated by decades. Remember when National Geographic put their whole entire magazines in one giant anthology archived in a CD? That’s what I would love to see with these annuals.

I have gotten half way through the 1916 annual. Took me a good 2 months, but I’m off and on… It’s hard to dedicate the time. When I’m done, I will release it here on the fourm. I’m pretty sure any copyrights have been expired, unless Henry Kuska knows something about it. Thanks… EMR

Enrique, at some point the ARS switched over to magazine format and I’m guessing it was that year, since that’s the last one I have as well.

I have two copies of 1961 if you’d like one.
