The publication of this book marks the tercentenary of the revolution which swept King James VII and II off the thrones of Scotland and England and saw his sister Mary and her Dutch husband, William of Orange appointed co-monarchs in his stead. The introduction of the formal garden into England is, here, attributed to them, and the purpose of this volume is to celebrate the gardens of William and Mary both in Britain and in Holland. The work covers the history of the Dutch garden, describing some of the greatest gardens, and discusses the construction and design of the gardens, looking at the plants used in the light of the Dutch and British maritime trade and the growth of plant hunting. The contributors are from Britain and Holland.
