Irish Demesne Landscapes, 1660-1740

978-1846825064 HB

This book charts the history and development of formal gardening in Ireland in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, and in particular the grand geometric style that was fashionable between 1660 and 1740. It examines the people who created these gardens, the influences that affected them, the materials that they employed and the uses of landscapes interventions. Using a wide range of sources, including several previously unpublished, this is the most extensive survey of early Irish gardens to date.
