Synopsis: Black and white archival photographs and discriptive text explore the gardens of England's manor houses and estates
From Library Journal:
The photographs presented here are as lavish as the gardens of the grand English country houses they illustrate. While many of the gardens no longer exist, they can be enjoyed again through these photographs. Full-page illustrations reflect the evolution of the taste of the wealthy (or aspiring to be wealthy) readers of the British magazine Country Life, from whose archives the photographs come. Elliott, librarian and archivist of the Royal Horticultural Society, provides a concise history of the main trends in English garden design in the 19th and early 20th centuries, from the influence of Gertrude Jekyll, a contributor and advisor to the magazine, to the modernism of the 1930s. Recommended for all garden history collections.
