William Robinson - the Wild Gardener, Bisgrove, Richard
14 Bisgrove, Richard William Robinson - the Wild Gardener
London Frances Lincoln 2008 0711225427 / 9780711225428 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Good 
Very well illustrated, large quarto, pp 256, a very good copy in dustwrapper. Very scarce. [In this book Richard Bisgrove analyses William Robinson and his remarkable contribution to gardening. Robinson and Gertrude Jekyll were almost exact contemporaries and each made enormous contributions to the English garden - and so to the gardens of the whole English-speaking and Anglophile world - but in rather different ways. Robinson, more than any other gardener, was responsible for sweeping away the carpet bedding of the Victorians and promoting a more relaxed style using hardy plants. His voluminous writings have been hugely influential. The English Flower Garden (1883) has been described as 'the most widely read and influential gardening book ever written'. The Wild Garden(1870) runs it close. As a man he was something of a paradox - an Irish bachelor who is widely regarded as the father of the English flower garden, a theorist who scorned theorizing and an author who wrote with passion - and simultaneously - about the technicalities of mushroom cultivation and the picturesque treatment of a thousand-acre estate.]
