From Library Journal:

This book is sure to tempt many from their armchairs and into the travel agent's. A well-bound, portable work, it updates Georgina Masson's classic Italian Gardens (1961). Chatfield traces the evolution of Italian gardens from antiquity through the 19th century, then provides maps, a glossary, and detailed information on gardens designed between the 16th and 18th centuriesmany currently open to the public. The text includes notes on plantings, fountains, and sculpture as well as intriguing facts about the gardens' aristocratic owners; accounts of contemporary travelers enliven the whole. This gorgeous book will circulate briskly among those who love gardening, travel, and the history of landscape architecture. L.N. Reno, formerly with Kent State Univ., Ohio
