The English Garden
A Journey Through its History
This journey through the history of the English garden features twelve of the most important, original and beautiful parks in the country. Garden design changed radically during the 18th century, when French symmetry was replaced by a new landscaped naturalism, and gardeners at Chiswick House, Castle Howard, Studley, Rousham, Stowe, Petworth and elsewhere redefined our ideas of beauty. The erudite narrative is accompanied by contemporary illustrations. No jacket.
