From Carnac to Callanish - the prehistoric stone rows and avenues of Britain, Ireland and Brittany, Burl, Aubrey
13 Burl, Aubrey From Carnac to Callanish - the prehistoric stone rows and avenues of Britain, Ireland and Brittany
Yale University Press 1993 0300055757 / 9780300055757 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Slightly Worn 
Well illustrated, large 8vo, pp xvi, 286, a very good copy in a very slightly worn dustwrapper. [This book discusses the lines of standing stones that until now have been the neglected wonders of prehistoric Europe, rows that were foci of rituals in Britain, Ireland and Brittany for over two thousand years. Places such as Carnac in Brittany and Callanish in the Hebrides are visited by many visitors each year, but before now there has been no book that seriously explains the history, significance and background to these impressive sites. Aubrey Burl shows that the settings vary from pairs of isolated stones in the far south-west of Ireland to networks of long lines in Scotland, Dartmoor and Brittany, and describes the types in a sequence of architectural chapters that stress the increasing social and commercial connections between regions hundred of miles apart. He uses information from a wide variety of sources - excavation reports, megalithic art, astronomical analyses and legends - to provide explanations of why the rows were erected, when, and what they may have been used for.]

London Frances Lincoln 2006 0711225338 / 9780711225336 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Good 
Very well illustrated, quarto, pp 176, a very good copy in a dustwrapper showing the faintest signs of use. Virtually as new. [The 29 landscape designs selected for this book have changed the way we look at designed outdoor spaces. They are examples of the ways in which 20th-century landscape designers have attempted to create a new style to reflect the modern age. All the landscapes still exist in some form and most can be visited. They range from Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater to Brenda Colville's Eggborough Power Station, Ian Hamilton Finlay's Little Sparta to Maya Lin's Vietnam War Memorial, Derek Jarman's Prospect Cottage to Charles Jencks' garden of Cosmic Speculation. Katie Campbell is the ideal guide and interpreter. She opens our eyes to the radical ideas, new materials and artistic intentions and achievements behind her chosen sites.]

Gardens Without Boundaries, Cooper, Paul
16 Cooper, Paul Gardens Without Boundaries
London Mitchell Beazley 2003 1840007389 / 9781840007381 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Good 
Well illustrated, small quarto, pp 176, a very good copy in dustwrapper. VERY SCARCE. [One of the most important aspects of garden design has always been the relationship between a garden and its surrounding landscape. This book looks at the way in which today's leading garden and landscape designers have concealed boundaries, disguised edges or brought "nature" up to the house, in order to link private gardens to the landscape beyond. With small urban gardens designers have also invented trompe l'oeil effects to make cramped spaces look larger, while other designers have devised new ways of mimicking nature, and land artists have "adopted" the existing landscape and created gardens as temporary events. Including examples of gardens from all over the world, this book challenges preconceptions of contemporary garden design as well as providing ideas and inspiration for any gardener.]

[The 3rd edition of this book has been revised and updated by one of the pioneers in the field of landscape design. The book examines principles of design in famous gardens in Spain, Italy, France and England. Dame Sylvia Crowe, a pioneer in the field of landscape design, has written a book that encompasses both a history of design in gardens and a study of the need for these principles to be applied to the contemporary landscape. She takes the reader through the recurring manifestations of the principles of design in such famous gardens as the Alhambra in Spain, the Villa Lante in Italy, Vaux-le-Vicomte in France and Stowe in England and on to the works of Roberto Burle Marx, Lawrence Halprin and Sven Hermelin. While this book is aimed at all landscape architects and planners, it should also be enjoyed by anyone interested in garden design.]
