The Edinburgh New Town Gardens

£60.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Hardback, 2005, Birlinn. Very good condition with pages in excellent condition. Very good dust jacket with slight wear on the top edges. Tracing the history of the gardens from the days of the Enlightenment to the present day, Connie Byrom shows that the Gardens did not evolve in the neat way that maps and plans suggest, but that their inception involved a great deal of time, effort and negotiating skills from a large number of people; and on occasions a fair bit of fighting to preserve their patch of open space for the benefit of the wider community and the lasting adornment of Scotland's capital. Never before have they been considered together or in relation to the building developments to which they are attached. Lavishly illustrated in black and white and colour throughout, The Edinburgh New Town Gardens covers each the gardens in the center of the city, from the large public spaces of Princes Street Gardens to the more intimate and secluded gardens of the elegant New Town crescents.
