Synopsis: The publication of this book marks the tercentenary of the revolution which swept King James VII and II off the thrones of Scotland and England and saw his sister Mary and her Dutch husband, William of Orange appointed co-monarchs in his stead. The introduction of the formal garden into England is, here, attributed to them, and the purpose of this volume is to celebrate the gardens of William and Mary both in Britain and in Holland. The work covers the history of the Dutch garden, describing some of the greatest gardens, and discusses the construction and design of the gardens, looking at the plants used in the light of the Dutch and British maritime trade and the growth of plant hunting. The contributors are from Britain and Holland.

From Publishers Weekly: For too long, argue the authors, the Dutch classical garden has suffered from an undeserved bad reputation for small-minded fussiness: as early as the 1740s, a famed English critic dismissed them as "those crimping, Diminutive, and wretched Performances." Jacques, Inspector of Historic Parks and Gardens in England, and van der Horst, a Dutch landscape architect, instead appreciate the gardens for their "sense of enclosure, of intimacy, and of the relationship of buildings, especially pavilions, to water." This detailed comparative history of royal Dutch gardens in the Netherlands and England during the reign of William and Mary (1688-1702) dwells on the glory days when one typical garden avenue was framed by 1864 elms in four rows running three miles (in Hampton Court, 1000 clipped yews and hollies once flourished) and takes readers on a walk through the typical classical Dutch garden to analyze each element. Most fascinating is a section where the opinions of garden visitors from the past are quoted (and rebutted). As academic as the subject may seem, the study shows flashes of brilliance.and thoroughness.
