According to Simon & Cochet (1906) there are or were TWO different 'Princesse de Nassau' roses, the one a moschata bred by Laffay (pale yellow) and one a gallica or alba bred by Miellez (deep pink). If that is so, then you need to include a second listing for the latter. The reference you have from Les Roses Cultivee a L'Hay en 1902 substantiates that. (However, Simon & Cochet clearly got the date wrong for Laffay's rose.)

We might already have the gallica one listed - as Prince de Nassau

I am afraid I just cannot see the listing for 'Princesse de Nassau' from Les Roses Cultivee a L'Hay en 1902 in my paper copy. I have had a good peer with the magnifying glass and it is certainly not on p103 (which are moss roses anyway) Theoretically it should be on p97 under Noisettes.

A belated reply:
in I quote from Gravereaux's Les roses cultivees a l'Hay en 1902:

Page 103, Section V--Provins: Princesse de Naussau (Miellez) rose fonce.

Page 159 Section I--Moschata: Princesse de Nassau (Laffay) jaune paille

Because of the 1936 reference in the 'Prince de Nassau' file, I have added the synonym of 'Princesse de Nassau' to that file. (Now I know why I couldn't find it. My Roseraie de l' Hay catalogue is 1900. Yours is 1902.)
Thanks Darrell.

I grew a moschata hybrid rose named 'Princesse de Nassau'. It was one of the most satisfactory garden plants I have ever grown. The flowers, foliage and bush were all exceptionally attractive, repeat bloom was rapid throughout the growing season and there was a moderate fragrance. Alas, not hardy colder than about USDA zone 7 I would think. It is about the size and shape of a typical white floribunda and, for me, was a much better plant than most of the later florries.

In my garden, this rose does repeat bloom throughout the year. The foliage is as beautiful as the flowers, which are white tinged with pink sometimes. I see no yellow color at all. It makes a lovely small shrub, and might even appeal to gardeners who don't normally grow roses.

Same comment as others: continuous bloomer for me too.
This rose is certainly underused, as it has at least two outstanding features :
- it blooms later than most roses, and usually starts its show when most others finish their first flush
- the foliage is absolutely gorgeous, and unique! Lush, light green, dense long/narrow leaflets make a wonderful background for the profusion of flowers.
It is easy to grow, very floriferous and very healthy by me.
Grown own root in slightly alcaline soil, zone 7b, full sun.
