Product Information

Originally published in the 1900s by the House and Gardens magazine, this work is a collection of photographs highlighting American country homes and gardens from all over the nation. The only text in the book is found in the four page introduction.

In the book, you will see examples of many kinds of Gardens: of the garden so free in its treatment that it seems but a part of the surrounding landscape; of the garden of our grandmothers, with its sweet straightforward simplicity; of the garden inspired by those of Japan, where art is so subtle that formality becomes a part of nature; of the ultra formal garden which is but a mansion in the open. The House, too, is shown in great variety: some which bear the clear impress of foreign inspiration; some of as evident home birth; the house of the last Century and of the Century before and the house of to-day; the house which is a Mansion and the house which is a Home.
