Italian villas and their gardens by Edith Wharton( Book )
3 editions published between 1904 and 1905 in English and held by 398 libraries worldwide
In Italian Villas and Their Gardens, Edith Wharton does for landscape architecture what she did for interior design in The Decoration of Houses. She explores the relationships between house architecture, garden design,and the surrounding environment, and in the process, suggests that Americans use Italian gardens as examples to emulate. She provides a context for a career that would become termed a "landscape architect." Wharton’s niece Beatrix Jones Farrand became a well-respected landscape designer whose clients included J. Pierpont Morgan and First Lady Ellen Wilson, wife of President Woodrow Wilson. Although the designs she completed for the White House have been redesigned during later presidencies, her most striking work may still be seen at Dumbarton Oaks estate, Washington D.C. This neo-classical garden may have been influenced by such Italian Renaissance gardens as her aunt describes in Italian Villas and Their Gardens
