It is also missing several roses so it is not necessarily a complete encyclopedia. I am from Australia and have several famous roses in my garden such as Fire Fighter, Neptune, Sight Saver, Aotearoa, Barbra Streisand, John Paul II, dior essence by delbard but they are not listed. The book also talks about delbard roses but doesn't list all delbard roses, I couldn't find one of their famous roses called "Chartreuse de Parme" and many more. So in summary, it is not a complete encyclopedia.
However, if you already have a copy of the first or second editions you will not need this third edition: I could find nothing different in it from the two earlier versions.
The RHS encyclopedia of roses falls well short of those standards in terms of its overall production, presentation and content. Quite extra ordinarily, bearing in mind this is an RHS book, the descriptions of the roses fail to even indicate those roses that have an RHS Award for Garden Merit!
All rather disappointing.
