A much-needed book . . .
-- Country Life, 18th January 2007
A scholarly history disguised as a coffee table book, this stylish
and imposing title wears its learning lightly . . . Helena Attlee certainly
knows her stuff. -- The Sunday Telegraph, 26th November 2006
The last convincing attempt at an accessible general history was
Georgina Masson's Italian Gardens, published 45 years ago. This new book
of the same name is a worthy successor. -- The Daily Telegraph, 2nd December 2006
This attractive and well-written volume fills a gap on the shelves
for a good general book on the history of Italian gardens ... a book
conceived with clarity and produced with care, and it can certainly be
recommended. -- Gardens Illustrated, January 2007
