Rosary: Mysteries, Meditations, and the Telling of the Beads by Kevin Orlin Johnson
"A comprehensive and fascinating tour de force on the skills of Christian meditative prayer, including the history of the Rosary, the history of the devotion, the theology behind it, and its many connections to art, architecture, liturgy, and other forms of prayer. Includes a chapter on each of the fifteen Mysteries, examining them from archaeological, anthropological, textual, and other viewpoints, and a thorough explanation of the many promises conveyed by apparitions of Mary to St. Dominic and Bl. Alan de Rupe, drawn largely from the Fathers of the Church. Throughout the text, the immense spiritual and social benefits of the Rosary and of meditative prayer emerge through the stories of the great saints who re-converted England, France, Italy, and other countries by encouraging the practice."

The Threefold Garland by Hans Urs von Balthasar. Beautiful and profound meditations on the Fifteen Mysteries of the Holy Rosary by the great theologian and man of prayer.

The Rosary of Our Lady by Romano Guardini.  Many valuable insights into the Rosary as prayer, and rich meditations on each Mystery. At amazon there is a hardback more readily available (and a bit less expensive) and possibly a paperback edition as well.

The Essential Rosary: Prayers  by Caryll Houselander.  Anything by Caryll Houselander is filled with spiritual insight; how good to have her writing about the Rosary!
