Mention was made of this book in the Garden Book supplement, (P. 148) but now -- having seen the finished book, I feel it deserves more than a Postscript. It is a beautiful book, and an inspiring one as well. The running text -- distinguished from the expanded descriptive captions connected with Edward Steichen's beautiful colored photographs -- contains practical step-by-step record of the making and remaking of a garden, contributed by the husband who is overly modest as to his own capacities in carrying out ""the gardener's"" ideas. This part of the book is really usable by any aspirant, -- preparing the soil, remaking an old border, building a path, and so on. The special features, covering many special kinds of gardens, are extravagant for these practical days, but make the beginner realize the potentialities of future expansion.
