The English Heritage Parks and Gardens Register
is a record of gardens deemed to possess special historical importance. It also preserves and protects through custodial care and financial assistance. Taylor, author of A Gardener's Guide to Britain
, is particularly qualified to select 100 outstanding sites from the more than 1,500 overall. Expect to find evocative photographs of formidable landscapes in a lavish book that interprets a particularly remarkable aspect of English culture. Taylor's accompanying text portrays key personalities associated with each garden's design, planning, and execution and describes architectural elements not illustrated--of castles and manor houses, of classical statuary and unique structural features. Readers dreaming of a visit are provided with listings of addresses and opening times. Alice Joyce
