Pre-owned. With a wealth of outstanding examples, illustrated with 350 photographs, she describes many garden styles – formality, the landscape tradition, the Arts and Crafts style, the cottage garden and recent phenomena such as New Naturalism. Colour, water, ornament and foreign influences are among the themes she considers, as well as such defining characteristics as the very English urge to grow flowers and the nation’s love of roses. Review:Buchan has done a brilliant job in boxing and coaxing the vast sweep of English garden history into an engaging narrative. Very good condition with no tears, tanning or inscriptions. Very minor creases to dust jacket. Hardcover. Published by Frances Lincoln 2006
