Item Description: New York: The Century Co., 1910., 1910. 4to. Frontispiece and 25 plates by Maxfield Parrish including 15 in full color, 26 black and white plates from photographs and numerous drawings in the text (marginal creases pages 227-243 not affecting images). Original green pictorial cloth gilt, top edges gilt, fore and lower edges uncut (head and foot of the spine and corners just touched, front inner hinge cracked). First edition, published simultaneously in London. More widely known as one of America's foremost novelists, Edith Wharton, was also an accomplished essayist with this book being first published in parts in "The Century Magazine": "The Italian garden does not exist for its flowers; its flowers exist for it: they are a late and infrequent adjunct to its beauties, a parenthetical grace counting only as one more touch in the general effect of enchantment. This is no doubt partly explained by the difficulty of cultivating any but spring flowers in so hot and dry a climate, and the result has been a wonderful development of the more permanent effects to be obtained from the three other factors in garden-composition - marble, water and perennial verdure -." (Wharton "Introduction"). Bookseller Inventory # 002129

Item Description: The Century Company, New York, 1904. First edition. Quarto, original dark green cloth, top edge gilt. With 45 full-page plates, including 26 illustrations by Maxfield Parrish (15 in color), seven in-text and 19 black-and-white photographic illustrations. In near fine condition with some light rubbing and wear. A very nice example. Edith Wharton’s Italian Villas and Their Gardens, a seminal work on garden design, is a testament to the passionate connoisseurship of one of America’s greatest writers. A comprehensive look at the history and character of Italian garden architecture and ornamentation, the book explores more than seventy-five villas, capturing what Wharton calls their "garden-magic" and illuminating the intimate relationship between the house, its formal gardens, and the surrounding countryside. ".Parrish illustrations, in trademark dreamy, fairy-tale style--seems to dislocate these legendary gardens from time altogether" (Forbes). Bookseller Inventory # 36021
