Authored by Ivan Louette
This article shows that old herbarium specimen of roses collected in Egypt, China and Laos are very similar or nearly identical in their botanical characters to the rose today called 'Rose Edward', considered the ancestor of all Bourbon roses. Photographs of 'Rose Edward' live plants and in herbarium specimens are compared to these ancient materials and extracts about the 'Sebba'auy' rose from Gunnar Täckholm's paper "Egyptian Garden Roses in Schweinfürth's Herbarium" are cited along with the original illustration of this ancient rose. A short study is added about japanese cultivated roses specimens sent to Crépin at the end of the XIXth Century (at the Meiji Period), and which he considered to be R. gallica x indica
