Rosa muscosa multiplex

The Rosarium Project will collect, highlight, digitally curate and bring to the Web historical primary sources about the genus Rosa. The project focuses on non-fiction materials written about the rose in English from the sixteenth century up to 1923. These resources will include books, pamphlets, ephemera, and articles from popular magazines, scholarly journals and newspapers. The digital texts—with their accompanying images, a rose glossary and a bibliography—will be fully searchable. Researchers will be able to browse the books and articles or search through them by keyword, author, title, subject, and other facets. Users will have freely available online access to historical documents about roses.
