I had all my life been a theoretical rose-lover, but this labor of love for the rose impelled me to make my relationship practical. This increasingly pleasant rose contact has reached into every state and province of the United States and Canada, as well as across both oceans to all of Europe, to the Philippines, Japan and CHina, to Australia, Ceylon and New Zealand. It has made possible the assembling annually of a record of American rose progress, with side-lights from all the world.

Modern roses [I]: a uniform descriptive list of all important roses in commerce, prepared for the American rose society by J. Horace McFarland

New York : The Macmillan Co., [printed, revised and produced by J. Horace McFarland Company Mount Pleasant Press, Harrisburg, PA],1930, 1930. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. [1st edition;1st printing] ; viii, 284 pages : illustrations ; 21 cm ; LCCN: 30-21100 ; LC: SB411; Dewey: 635.93337 ; OCLC: 1718222 ; tan cloth with dark brown lettering ; no dustjacket ; "This work expresses a sincere desire to know the facts about roses in American commerce. Its compilation, extending over a period of fifteen years, has been undertaken in recognition of the difficulties involved in getting all the facts, and only the facts, about any particular rose, because of the sometimes pardonable pride or less pardonable commercial enthusiasm which leads to the use of many favorable words in telling about it. The process of compilation has been going on since the beginning of the publication, each year, in the American Rose Annual of as complete a list of descriptions of the world's new roses as were obtainable from the originators and disseminators. These were secured by sending to all known rose originators a carefully designed card, checks on which indicate the features of the rose to be described. These cards are now rather generally used by important producers of roses all over the world. Because many good roses were in commerce before the inquiry connected with the American Rose Annual began, in 1916, a careful study has been made as to what varieties beyond those new within this period ought to be described in this volume. The first added list included varieties listed in at least four current reputable American rose catalogues. The final inclusion brought in many varieties mentioned in only one American catalogue. As there are accessible names and approximate descriptions of at least 10,000 roses that have been in commerce in Europe or America within a century, all of which are not now obtainable, it was obviously necessary to confine this list to varieties that could be obtained in 1930, or were then being prepared for commerce." ; very scarce first edition of what has become one of the most important series of catalogs of the world's roses in print ; slight wear, VG.

Harrisburg, Pa. : American Rose Society, 1922, 1922. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 192, xxi ; illustrated, 1 foldout in color ; 21 cm. ; John Horace McFarland (1859-1948) was an American master printer and horticulturist. Throughout his career, he advocated for civic beautification, and he became a leader in the conservation movement of the early twentieth century. His wide-ranging achievements made a lasting impact on printing processes, horticulture, and environmental protection. During McFarland's early years, his father operated a nursery and a small weekly newspaper in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. McFarland worked in both of his father's businesses as a youth. These early experiences instilled the passion for horticultural beauty and the business expertise that distinguished him personally and professionally. He eventually purchased his father's press. Combining the skills learned from these early experiences, he established a successful printing company of his own. He founded the J. Horace McFarland Company/Mount Pleasant Press, specializing in seed catalogs and nursery trade publications. Over the course of his lifetime, McFarland wrote and lectured extensively on horticulture, printing methods, and civic improvement. McFarland was a prominent member of the American Rose Society. He was instrumental in enlarging that organization's focus from mainly commercial growing concerns to public membership, using his horticultural expertise and printing business to help popularize the cultivation of roses by amateur gardeners. He served as the Society's president from 1930 to 1932, and he headed a committee that developed a method of identification and registration of rose varieties. McFarland operated one of the Society's rose test gardens at Breeze Hill. For many years, he kept detailed records on hundreds of rose varieties, methods for cultivating them, and awards they won.; Contents: Is the American Rose Society worth while? / Robert Pyle -- Dr. Walter van Fleet, american rosarian and plant hybridist, an appreciation by some of his friends and associates -- What new roses does America need? -- An American Rose Society list of best varieties? / Capt.
