First published in 1977, The Pleasure Garden is an entertaining and concise history of English gardening by husband and wife team Osbert Lancaster and Anne Scott-James. In a series of beautifully observed and witty cartoon illustrations Osbert Lancaster captures the essence of gardening styles from Roman times through to the twentieth-century patio, as he did for styles of architecture in Pillar to Post and A Cartoon History of Architecture. The accompanying text by Anne Scott-James explains the work of garden-makers and designers and the native and newly arrived plants they used.

About the Author:

Sir Osbert Lancaster (1908-86) was the only cartoonist ever to be knighted. He produced several books on architecture, including Homes, Sweet Homes (1939), in which he coined the phrase 'stockbroker Tudor'. From 1939 onwards he produced cartoons for the Daily Express, using his character Maudie Littlehampton to satirize upper-class preoccupations. Anne Scott-James is the author of a string of successful books including the gardening classics Down to Earth, Sissinghurst and Gardening Letters to My Daughter.
