I bought this book to learn more about historical gardens and what was in them

A lively illustrated social and horticultural book that adds a significant new dimension to our understanding of American garden history. I bought this book to learn more about historical gardens and what was in them. While this isn't the purpose of this book, it is so detailed in its descriptions of its historic New England gardens that you could certainly use it for this purpose. It also has a wealth of information about historic New England estates, who lived there and took care of them, and of course the gardens found on the estate. Just reading the stories about their former residents was fascinating.

Alan Emmet’s glimpse into more than two dozen gardens that graced New England’s towns and countryside from just after the American Revolution into the twentieth century has delights of its own. Drawing from diaries, correspondence, historical records, sketch maps, and paintings, Emmet treats the garden-ranging from small urban retreats to ornamental estates of thousands of acres-as an art form and examines its evolution form the utilitarian to the ornate.
