Summary

This is the first book to offer the fascinating history of American garden ornament from 1740 to 1940: fountains, statues, urns, garden furniture, sundials, spheres, gates, fences, and more. A catalogue of specific examples follows, which can be used as a guide by dealers and collectors. There's also a list of makers, a section on maintenance, and a list of historic gardens in America.
