Edith Wharton's Italian Gardens
Vivian Russell


Wharton Italian gardens

Buy it at Amazon

Edith Wharton published her first book on Italian garden architecture, "Italian Villas and Their Gardens", in 1904. She was a lifelong Italophile as well as a lifelong gardener. Nineteen of the gardens Wharton and her illustrator Maxfield Parrish brought to public attention are virtually unchanged by the passage of the single century since her descriptions were written. Russell has recaptured both the essence of the gardens themselves and Wharton's experience of them in a series of excellent photographs and historical summaries of each garden.

Your webmaster owns and, believe it or not, has actually read all the books listed in the Tuscan gardens bibliography. Of the in-print guides to the gardens of Italy, this book by Penelope Hobhouse is the guide book I recommend most highly. Concise, with beautiful illustrations and useful information about all the gardens that matter.


Italian Gardens: From Petrarch to Russell Page
Helena Attlee

Illustrated with contemporary paintings, drawings and prints as well as photographs of the gardens as they are today. Attlee, an expert in the field, starts with Petrarch who was still looking to mediaeval chronicles for advice on how and when to plant, and goes on through the Renaissance and to modern design.
