Austria-Hungary (former)
Rudolf Geschwind / Rudolph Geschwindt (french spelling), Hungary. (August 21, 1829 - August 30, 1910)

[From Rosen-Zeitung, 1910, p. 125:] The valuable Rose collection of the late Forstmeister Geschwind in Karpona in Hungary has been bought by Mrs Marie Henriette Gräfin Chotek of Korompa. Countess Chotek sent two persons to Karpona, which packed the roses and brough them, and now she is in the course of planting them in a separate section in her extensive, beautiful Rosarium. They are about 2000, almost all own cultivars of Geschwind, which partly, as there were too many, partly as they are quite new, are not yet in commerce.
