Description : Excerpt from Pioneers of American Landscape Design II: An Annotated Bibliography As stated in the first volume of Pioneers of American Landscape Design: An Annotated Bibliography, there is no singular source book or finding aid for researchers seeking information on those visionary practitioners who have had a significant impact on the designed American landscape. Since the publication of the first volume of Pioneers and The Landscape Universe in 1993, the need and surge in interest in landscape history referenced at that time has continued to increase dramatically. Probably the great est measuring stick for this movement is the increased number, and diversity of books related to landscape history now available. For example, new monographs discussing a designers' works or describing landscape types (defined by style or geography) include Beatrix: The Gardening Life of Beatrix Jones Farrand by Jane Brown (1 Money, Manure and Maintenance: Marian Coffin, Pioneer Land scape Architect, by Nancy Fleming Presenting Nature: The Historic Landscape Design of the National Park Service by Linda Mcclelland The California Garden by Jere French California Gardens: Creating A New Eden by David Streatfield Gardens of Historic Charleston by James Cothran and a reprint of Italian Gardens by Charles Platt with an overview by Keith N. Morgan (1993) to name just a few. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Description : "The authors seek not only to bring their subjects' design legacies to light, but also to instill a sense of stewardship for historically meaningful examples of their art. Across North America, key works in landscape design - from M. Paul Friedberg's Riis Plaza Park in New York to Dan Kiley's Nationsbank Plaza in Tampa - have already disappeared. Other iconic works, although still extant, face serious threats of demolition. Shaping the American Landscape identifies a host of public spaces deserving of recognition, and sheds light on the process by which they may be protected.".

Description : Foreign Trends in American Gardens addresses the influence of foreign, designed landscapes on the development of their American counterparts. Including essays from an array of significant scholars in landscape studies, this collection examines topics ranging from the importation of Western and Eastern styles of design and theoretical literature to the adaptation of specific plant types. As the variety of topics and influences discussed demonstrates, the essence of American gardens defies simple definition. Examining the translation, imitation, adaptation, and naturalization of stylistic trends and horticultural specimens into American gardens, the book also dwells on the juxtaposition of the foreign and the native. The volume’s contributors consider the experiences both of immigrants, who contributed through their writing, planting, and design efforts to enhance the character of regional gardens, and of Americans, who traveled abroad and brought back with them a passion for naturalizing exotics for scientific as well as aesthetic reasons. The complexity of American gardens—their combination of the historic and the modern, and of foreign cultures and local values—is also their most distinctive characteristic.
