A standard and comprehensive work on landscape gardening, with more than 600 illustrations, by the Prussian scholar and gardener Marie Luise Gothein (1863–1931). When the first English-language edition (1928) of this German study was published, sections on "modern" English and American gardens were added.

When I knew nothing about gardens and landscape I learned everything I needed to know from this book. I finally own a copy after using it decades ago.
