Greater perfections : the practice of garden theory by John Dixon Hunt( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"If gardening is most usually thought of as a practical activity, John Dixon Hunt's book explores the theoretical or conceptual basis of garden art." "Greater Perfections explores the meanings of "garden" and its relationship to other interventions into the natural world. It looks at the role of verbal and visual languages in place-making, as well as the fashion in which gardens have been represented in the visual and literary arts. But above all, it offers a new and challenging account of the role of representation in garden art itself."--Jacket

The Italian garden : art, design, and culture ( Book )
10 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Italian gardens vary widely according to their historical date and geographic location. This collection approaches Italian gardens of all periods, from the middle ages to modern times, and it ranges widely throughout the peninsula, from Genoa to Sicily, the Veneto to Liguria, and Ferrara to Florence." "The authors are a distinguished group of Italian, American, English and German scholars, with different backgrounds in art history, literature, architecture, planning, and cultural history. The explorations of the subject from these different perspectives illuminate not only their own disciplines, but are concerned to make many fresh connections between garden art and the politics of nationalism, between the art of gardens and urban infrastructure, between cultural movements like freemasonry and site planning, between design and planting materials. The book offers therefore a narrative of the garden by selecting ten high points of its history, which are introduced with a consideration by the volume editor of the fresh challenges to contemporary Italian garden history."--Jacket

A restoration comedy about a deceitful playboy who starts a rumor that he is a eunuch in order to gain the company of the ladies. His plan works well until he encourages the country wife of a jealous husband. This is a comedy of manners which paints an unflattering picture of the worldly hypocrites, would-be wits and fools who infested London in the late 17th century
A world of gardens by John Dixon Hunt( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Japanese garden is immediately distinct to the eye from the traditional gardens of an English manor house, just as the manicured topiaries of Versailles contrast with the sharp cacti of the American Southwest. Though gardening is beloved the world over, the style of gardens themselves varies from region to region, determined as much by culture as climate. In this series of illustrated essays, John Dixon Hunt takes us on a world tour of different periods in the making of gardens. Hunt shows here how cultural assumptions and local geography have shaped gar
