Acerca de


This tour of fifty of Italy's historic gardens, most open to the public, shows the transformation of the classic Italian garden from its ancient Roman model through the nineteenth century passion for the English landscape style to present-day plans for restoration.

From Library Journal:

This book is sure to tempt many from their armchairs and into the travel agent's. A well-bound, portable work, it updates Georgina Masson's classic Italian Gardens (1961). Chatfield traces the evolution of Italian gardens from antiquity through the 19th century, then provides maps, a glossary, and detailed information on gardens designed between the 16th and 18th centuriesmany currently open to the public. The text includes notes on plantings, fountains, and sculpture as well as intriguing facts about the gardens' aristocratic owners; accounts of contemporary travelers enliven the whole. This gorgeous book will circulate briskly among those who love gardening, travel, and the history of landscape architecture. L.N. Reno, formerly with Kent State Univ., Ohio

Descripción de la librería

Johnnycake Books trades in rare and collectible books of most kinds, principally in fields of literature, illustrated, childrens, architecture/design, gardening and photography. We try to offer books that are a little unusual, offbeat and unexpected: most have a strong visual or design appeal. Our descriptions present our inventory as creatively and colorfully as possible, with occassional editorial commentary. We regard condition of our books as critical to our service: most are very good or better, in collectible condition. We are generally conservative in describing a book, even if that means it doesn't sound as good as it actually might be. We welcome your comments directly at or visit our website Best wishes in your book collecting. Dan Dwyer
