About This Item

Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1917. Original paper spine label. Edges a little worn, small stain on front cover, internally fine. With 39 illustrations, maps, plans and two large folding plates in front and back pockets which show the Prince's grounds before and after his improvements. This work evolved from his experience in developing his estate between 1815 and 1844. He visited the United States and lived for years in England at a time of great changes in landscape architecture initiated by Lancelot Brown and Humphry Repton, who influence his emphasis on natural and pictureque beauty. In turn, Charles Eliot, the American landscape designer, visited his estate in 1886. Cloth and Boards. Very Good. 8vo.
