Praise

“With its many reproductions of line engravings and color photographs, this work is equivalent to many larger printed tomes on English garden history. Capability Brown (1716–83) took the English landscape and turned it into his ideal: large lawns, ponds, and forests in the distance. Nature was simplified in his hands. He changed the course of British estate landscaping and had enormous influence in the United States and elsewhere. Take this little book on your next British trip.” -Adele Kleine, Library volunteer and garden writer, Chicago Botanic Garden.
