Century Charleston's Gift to the World
The editors of Rosa Mundi are privileged to announce a major gift to the HRF from Barbara Worl of Menlo Park, California. Barbara has been a supporter of the goals of HRF since its beginning and a mentor to many in the old rose movement for the past thirty years. Her decision to turn her legacy from Sweetbriar Press, her small publishing company devoted to educating old rose lovers, over to the hands of HRF comes as no surprise to those who have benefited from her encouragement and support and been inspired by her love of the old roses.
in Sweetbriar Press’ inventory are a large number of copies of three
publications: a facsimile edition of Beauties of the Rose by Henry
Curtis, A Portfolio of Rose Hips painted by Southern California artist
Jessie-Chizu Baer, and Barbara’s reprint of the 1959 Roses of Yesterday
and Today catalogue by Will Tillotson. Copies of all three publications
will be available to order this summer on the HRF website. We encourage
you all to express your thanks to Barbara by obtaining one of these
apologies to readers of Rosa Mundi for my delay in providing this
information for the HRF website. We are still organizing the transfer
of these books and their installation in a dedicated storage for the
Foundation. Your patience is appreciated.
