Description:

(8 1/4 x 5 inches). viii, [1], 174, [2]pp. With the half-title bound in the rear, as issued. Uncut. Publisher's blue paper boards, rebacked to style. Housed in a green morocco backed box. First edition of this rare work by Repton, laying out his theories of landscape gardening: uncut in boards. Humphry Repton was the main successor to Lancelot "Capability" Brown as an improver of grounds for the English gentry in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. The present work is based on the text of his Sketches and Hints on Landscape Gardening (London: 1794), as Repton explains in the Advertisement: "In compliment to the present possessors of . [the Sketches .], I have determined never to publish another costly edition of it with plates; but rather to extract from it such matter as may not infer the [proposed] quarto volume, incorporating it with such further observations on the Theory and Practice of the Art, as have occurred from more recent practice; to which are added, answers to the attacks made on the art by some late publications" (pp.iv-v). The final sentence refers to works by the theoreticians Payne Knight and Uvedale Price, both of whom had written disparagingly of Capability Brown's work and Repton here answers their arguments. Henrey III, 1263; RIBA III, 2731. Bookseller Inventory #
