From AIS Bulletin #193 April 1969 Introducing SARACEN PRINCE (Mark E. Rogers) AB. 28-30". EE. Tawny Empress X Kalifa Baltis. As colorful and regal as Saladin, the "Saracen Prince" of the Crusades. Stds. lavender with yellowish infusion up the mid-rib; falls are amber-buff, lightly and smoothly overlaid maroon, which lightens toward the edge; dark wine "signal" around tip of wide, brown-tipped, bronze beard; amber style arms; falls recurve; excellent substance. In our opinion, both Saracen Prince and Saracen Jewel meet the requirements as arilbreds under the new rules. Both are very lovely. HC in 1967 $17.50 per each, net. Sierra Vista Iris Garden.
