GOTHEIN, MARIE LUISE. - A History of Garden Art edited by Walter P. Wright.

London, Dent 1928. Two volumes quarto publisher's elaborate gilt cloth; hundreds of illustrations, plans &c. A rather good set. ¶ Gothein's was the first great history of gardens and landscape design, ranging from ancient to modern and encompassing Islam, China and Japan. Like many pioneer historians her intentions are inspirational as much as educational: if "practical artists revert to the formal style, some knowledge and understanding of the chances and changes of thousands of years should be helpful in their work. My wish is that they find not so much a storehouse ... as an abundant harvest for their own creations in the present day". Original and better printing of the English edition, which also has some additions: Wright on England and Frank A. Waugh on American landscape design.
