Abstract:

"When English Pleasure Gardens was first published exactly a century ago, it was instantly acclaimed as a resource for gardeners, tourists, and history lovers alike. This new edition will introduce a new generation to the pageantry of Britain's garden heritage and to the redoubtable Rose Standish Nichols, who hailed from Boston's Beacon Hill, was among our earliest professional garden designers, and was nationally recognized for her expertise with native plants and residential garden design. Her designs derived from English formal gardens, but her planting style was American in spirit. Her gardens have disappeared, but her legacy survives in her writings."--Jacket.
