Descripción

xvi, 250 pages; Early 20th century binding of olive half calf (faded to brown at spine) over green cloth covered boards; gilt lettering and roses within panels on spine, all page edges gilt, light green marbled endpapers. Gilt faded at spine, shallow chipping at head of spine, leather lightly rubbed along edges. Attractive engraved bookplate of Louise Thoron Endicott. Brief inscription on half-title to L.E.dated 1892. Light scattered foxing, otherwise contents clean and tight. Sir Reginald Theodore Blomfield (20 December 1856 – 27 December 1942) was a prolific British architect, garden designer and author of the Victorian and Edwardian period. Blomfeld was an architect and proponent of formal landscape design. Formal gardens in England was his first book, beautifully illustrated by Inigo Thomas. Blomfield's advocacy of formal landscape design drew criticism from William Robinson (1838 – 1935), an Irish practical gardener and journalist whose ideas about wild gardening spurred the movement that evolved into the English cottage garden. Louise T. Endicott was born Louise Marie Thoron in New York on 26 November 1864. The daughter of a socially prominent New York family with strong Boston ties, she was educated in convent schools in the United States and France. She married William C. Endicott, Jr. in 1889.
