About this title


Bound in publisher's original black cloth with the spine stamped in silver.

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.

Store Description

Tiber Books is an internet merchant with over 35 years of bookselling experience -- we've been offering our holdings online for nearly 20 years now. The majority of our inventory is scholarly non-fiction in both the sciences and the humanities, but we also carry an increasing selection of additional material in Americana, Art, History of Science and Technology, Regional U.S. History, Religion, and many other subjects. You can search our inventory by author and/or title. However, we also understand the need to browse by subject matter, and therefore make extensive use of Keywords in listing each of our books. You should have good results if you experiment with Keyword searches of our inventory. We also include a book's ISBN (if it has one), so if you'd like to search by ISBN, please use ABE's Advanced Search menu -- omit the dashes from the number when searching by ISBN. Enjoy browsing!
