KIRKUS REVIEW

Each garden's unique feature is pictured and on the opposite page Lady Rockley describes the garden and a bit of its story. Thus she has traced the history of the English garden, the houses, the owners, the architects and in her introduction she takes us step by step though they are fairly sweeping from antiquity through the Tudors and Stuarts, the period of ""Landscape Gardening"" and Victorian gardens on to the gardens of today. People who have visited these gardens will be especially glad to have their record of them.
