Thomas Blaikie (1751i1838): The 'Capability' Brown of France

by Patricia Taylor

Editorial Reviews

Blaikie was a forgotten Scottish botanist and gardener when he died, but a century later his was published, covering the months he had spent as Britain's first professional plant collector in the Alps, and his subsequent career as a gardener and landscaper for the French royal family before the Revolution. Others have analyzed the first part of his account; here Taylor, editor of the Cottage Garden Society's quarterly magazine, analyzes the second. Distributed in the US by General Distribution Services. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
