Item Description: New York, Da Capo Press, No date (1976)., 1976. Facsimile of 1904 first edition. 18 cm x 25 cm. XXII, 270 pages. Original softcover. Very good condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Corners very slightly bumped. [The Classical America Series in Art and Architecture] Includes the following essays: Introduction / Florentine Villas / Sienese Villas / Roman villas / Villas Near Rome: Caprarola and Lante, Villa d'Este, Frascati / Genoese Villas / Lombard Villas / Villas of Venetia. "Struck by the magnificence of the Italian countryside from the time of her first sojourn there, our ranking novelist and lady of letters of the early 1900s—a renowned connoisseur—joined forces with the foremost illustrator of the time to celebrate a subject that was dear to them both: the incomparable villas and gardens of Italy. Edith Wharton draws on three centuries of knowledge written in four languages and covers some eighty villas and sixty garden architects. She describes the remarkable splendor of the villas for readers who have never seen them, and leads the reader through her discoveries of why the great houses and grounds create an effect of such profound calm and resolution.Their impact is not merely a matter of ancient statues or splashing fountains—impressive as these may be. Rather, the unique harmony stems from the spirit of the architects' and the designers' art: that delicate blending of man's work and the variations of nature to achieve a sense of flawless concord. Her success in describing the Villa D'Este, the Villa Medici, and others, is enhanced and vivified by the breathtaking, full-color paintings of Maxfield Parrish.In his introductory essay, Henry Hope Reed, president of Classical America, places Italian Villas and Their Gardens in the context of American garden design at the turn of the century. Edith Wharton's thesis, that there is much value to be learned from the traditional Italian garden, helped to shape the American landscape of the era. In conveying the message, Maxfield Parrish proved a worthy acolyte. Thomas S. Hayes, who is president of the Edith Whatron Restoration, Inc., tells in his essay how the Italian model guided her in designing the garden of her famous country house, the Mount, at Lenox, Massachusetts."

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
