Irish Demesne Landscapes, 1660-1740

By Vandra Costello

This book charts the history and development of formal gardening in Ireland in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, and in particular the grand geometric style garden 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 landscape interventions. Using a wide range of sources, including several previously unpublished, this the most extensive survey to date of early Irish gardens. [Subject: History, Irish Studies, Gardening, Landscaping]
