A fine copy. In his preface, the author acknowledges his distiguished predecessors and hopes that "these Essays may concentrate scattered but instructive hints, may unite the result of an earnest application to the effects of natural scenery as connected with the Art of Landscape Gardening, [and] may combine the information derived from professional pursuits in laying out grounds." Abbey Life 40.
