About this product
- DescriptionMarie Luise Gothein (1863-1931) published this scholarly two-volume history of garden design in German in 1913. Its second edition of 1925 was translated into English by Laura Archer-Hind, edited by gardening author Walter P. Wright (1864-1940), and published in 1928. The highly illustrated work is still regarded as among the most thorough and important surveys of its kind. It begins by examining evidence from both archaeology and literature, as well as climate and soil conditions, to discuss the gardens of ancient Egypt and Assyria, and continues to survey developments worldwide until the twentieth century. Individual gardens, technical invations, and fashions in horticulture are all discussed in detail. Volume 1 begins in ancient times and ends with English gardens during the Renaissance, and Volume 2 describes gardening in Europe, the Far East and North America from the Renaissance to the early twentieth century.
