4.0 out of 5 stars Writings on Gardens, 31 Aug 2014
This review is from: Writing the Garden (Hardcover)
Elisabeth Barlow Rogers has written a little book on two centuries of garden writings based on the collection of The New York Society Library. The copy I obtained in the Netherlands is a beautiful production and received the AHS Book Award. It is well written, with sufficient background information and many quotes from the books described. Unfortunately the selected writers are mainly American or English. Many important writers are missing, to name a few: Humphrey Repton, Henry Avray Tipping, Eleanour Sinclair Rohde, R.S. Nichols, Geoffrey Jellicoe and of course all the important continental writers. However this little book is still a good starting point to learn more about the American and English garden writers. Based on your preferences, you can then select those writers of your liking for further reading.
