I am determined to increase my knowledge of landscape history, and would be interested in other people's favorite books on the topic...Anything, just any aspect, any book you really love, would interest me - I am thinking of buying a $70.00 book written by two architects (Inventing the Garden) sold through the Getty, and don't know if it is worth the money..
That's two votes for good old E. Barlow, of Central Park fame..On the list! Thanks for the input, I really appreciate it, and am pretty much buying everything everyone listed, so far.. My retirement will be financed by selling my book collection.
Landscape of Man still rocks. Clearly ties in Landscape to the larger history of the built environment.
