This book was titled "A Rose for Ecclesiastes" in the U.K. & both editions contain the same 4 stories.

The title story (in the U.K.) is one of his most famous stories & rightfully so. It's another story set on a fictional Mars, with a dying Martian race & Earthmen to study them. It doesn't sound too appealing - more hackneyed than anything. It is nothing of the kind. It's touching - a romance mystery. 'Rose' also appears in his collection "The Lamps of His Mouth, The Doors of His Face" as well as in a couple of other anthologies.

My favorite story in the collection is "The Furies". Imagine the Greek Furies in the far future when man is on many planets.

Well worth reading.
