    London has more green space than almost any other city of comparable size. This innovative study explains how this came about. Extensively illustrated with historical maps and plans, it shows how the principles of landscape gardening developed for country houses in the 18th century were imported into the expanding metropolis in the 19th. The results, from the garden squares of Bloomsbury to the green expanses of the Royal Parks, give the city much of its character today.
