20 Attlee, Helena The Gardens of Portugal
London Frances Lincoln 2007 0711226938 / 9780711226937 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Slightly Worn 
Well illustrated, large quarto, pp 176, a very good copy in a very slightly worn dustwrapper. [The gardens of Portugal are among the most cosmopolitan in the world. The product of Portugal's long seafaring history, they bring together ideas from East and West in a style that is, in both design and planting, confident, flamboyant, exotic, and distinctly Portuguese. In the golden age of Portuguese exploration the glazed tiles and distinctive water tanks of the Moorish style were combined with the open loggias and box parterres of the Italian Renaissance, and gardens were decorated with statues and reliefs of dolphins, sea horses, anchors and other maritime motifs. From China, Japan, Africa, Australia and the Americas, Portugal's seafarers brought new seeds and plants such as camellias and rhododendrons that flourished in the mild climate.]
