The History of Garden Design: The Western Tradition from the Renaissance to the Present Day by Janet Waymark, Georges Tyssot

The most stimulating thought and research on the history of the garden from the fifteenth century to the present day is presented here in a chronological series of essays that make up a mosaic picture of the garden in the Western world. The humanist garden in Renaissance Italy; the concepts of the Sublime and the Picturesque; mazes, grottoes and other curiosities; American land art; and even Disneyland are among the topics treated. Individual gardens are analyzed as paradigms of their type: the Hortus Palatinus in Heidelberg, the Parc Monceau in Paris, Stowe in England, and many others.
