Traces the history of British landscape design, shows gardens for each period, and discusses important architects
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This work presents the plans, elevations, and perspective drawings of English gardens selected from the collection of the Royal Institute of British Architects. Grouped chronologically, with special sections for buildings and ornament, each garden is further identified by designer, date, and location. Chapter introductions put the gardens in historical and aesthetic context, though these and the general introduction are marred by Brown's meandering style. Garden historians will find this a good survey; students and practitioners of landscape architecture will find inspiration and ideas for their classically oriented designs. Recommended for special collections.
- Stephen Hupp, formerly with Eisenhower P.L., Ill.
