Édition Le Moulin, Berne, 1975. Hardcover. LIMITED EDITION, SIGNED BY TRECHSLIN,COGGIATTI AND THE PUBLISHER LARGE FOLIO,54 x 41 cms,40 fine coloured plates,mounted in overlay-mounts with textured surface, each mount discreetly embossed with a number given in the index,printed text loosely inserted,contained in a fine lime-coloured linen folding case, titled in gilt.The plates are printed in a screenless flat-bed impression and the reproduction is made from grained plates.The lithographer has retouched these plates by hand to give a light and shade that is a precise rendering of the original.They are produced in a unique 12 to 15 colour printing process,which achieves an intensity and variety of colours that makes the images appear like original watercolours.The text describes each rose and comprises 52 pages, 25 of which are printed in two colours ;in addition to the individual histories of the 40 roses there are also short biographies of the artist and the author and a table of contents. Acknowledged as the finest living artist painting watercolours of roses,this collection displays some of her most beautiful works.In 2001 the Musee d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris invited the Artist to create a painting on vellum to continue a tradition of flower painting since Robert & Redoute in the 18th century. In 2002 at a special exposition "Roses and Camellias", A.M. Trechslin's 40 watercolours were made accessible to the public.Anne Marie Trechslin has had the honour of being presented to two queens, Queen Fabiola of Belgium accepted from her a drawing of the rose "Pascali" - a Belgian variety which has received a large number of awards in international competition - and to H.M.Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother who complimented her upon the quality and beauty of the picture of the "Queen Elizabeth" rose which she had presented to her Majesty at St James?s Palace on the occasion of the reception held for overseas delegates to the International Rose Conference in 1968. Many other awards have followed.Although the edition was intended to be large,it is likely there are no more than a few hundred copies in existence.
