This text is both an account of the most widespread artistic concern of eighteenth-century England, and a history of unique indigenous tradition of architecture in its setting. It includes chapters on the early landscape gardens; on the fashion for ruins… and follies; on the theory and practice of garden design; on the influence of the Picturesque in Europe; and on the history of village design and town-planning, culminating in the garden city. 1982.
