Good Fascimile of a Classic Text of Arts & Crafts Gardens
on 17 June 2015
A book about the philosophy behind the work of the British landscape architect Thomas H Manson, by the man himself. Great as a historic reference book for landscape architecture, quite Edwardian in it's language though (it is a period work, that said). The illustrations come out quite well on the eBook version (which is sometimes a problem with paper facsimiles of this particular book). Mawson was exacting in his craftsmanship and the illustrations really bear this out. There is the odd typo where its been scanned to make it into an eBook, amusing rather than problematic. The same goes for the illustrations, some strange page settings come in wherever an illustration is dropped in. So it's not quite the same as reading from a paper text, but for the money and convenience, an excellent alternative. For my purposes (historical research into Arts and Crafts parterres) it was perfect !
