A fine, clean copy of "The English Garden", by Lawrence Fleming and Alan Gore, first published in 1979, this edition issued in 1988 by Spring Books of London. A delightful celebration of a living tradition going back to the Middle Ages and beyond. In this fascinating book, gardens have been specially selected to exemplify the features of each period, particular emphasis being placed on the years from 1680 to 1820, when pioneers like William Kent, Capability Brown and Humphrey Repton turned whole landscapes into works of art. Many famous gardens are here included, such as those at Blenheim Palace, Hampton Court and Kew. Lavishly illustrated with nearly 350 photographs, drawings and plans, the book vividly presents the pursuit of gardening as a pleasure and demonstrates how, throughout history, our gardens have reflected the society and architecture of the times. Hard covers, large format, 256 pages, original dust jacket.
