There is an excellent online article on the Barbiers, illustrated, by Lloyd Chapman. The web address is
http://www.annchapman.net.nz/content/barbiers-and-their-roses
Mr Chapman calls it a book, and it is long enough and authoritative enough to be one: "The Barbiers and their Roses."

"Barbier Frères et Compagnie in Orleans were rosarians. The company was founded in 1900 and closed sometime in 1933. During those years, the brothers introduced 67 hybrid roses; many were crosses between hybrid teas and Rosa wichuraiana descendants. The brothers derived bushes with the best traits of both."
