£9.99

Product description

340pp. 1990. Hardback. Good condition. Rubbing and small tears to DJ corners. Some sunning/discolouration to DJ spine. Hardback panels in good, sturdy condition. Fine spine. Clean text throughout. Some foxing/grubbiness to outer page edges.


(English and Dutch) In the second half of the 17th century, garden design was amongst the most popular art-forms in England and Holland, yet it is a field neglected by modern historians. The English and Dutch contributors to this book have used the opportunity presented by the tercentenary of the Glorious revolution of 1688 to highlight the importance of garden design in Dutch and English culture under William and Mary. Four introductory essays and more than 180 entries on paintings, drawings, engravings, books, medals, botanical illustrations and garden furniture offer the reader an insight into the design and style of garden art in this period, and elucidate its historical and botanical context. Special emphasis is given to the reception of Dutch garden styles in England, and to the introduction of new botanical species ion both countries. This richly-illustrated books is published as a pecial issue of the Journal of Garden History, in association with a major exhibition on this theme held at Rijksmuseum Paleis Het Loo, Apeldoorn and Christie's, London.
