His beautifully illustrated analysis offers fresh interpretations, raises new issues, and answers questions regarding mythology, Christian symbolism and spatial perception. Drawings and iconographic plans are included, as well as recently discovered art work and writings relating to two of the garden's key symbols. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
