Overview

This handsome reprinted edition of landscape architect Olmsted's record of his 1850 walking tour through England and Wales contains an introduction and annotation by Charles C. McLaughlin (emeritus, history, American U.), a specialist on Olmsted. In his introduction, McLaughlin details Olmsted's travel in England and the influence of its parks, geography, and views on his landscape design, including his design of Central Park. Though the book will be of interest to scholars of Olmsted and American park design, the account will capture the imagination of anyone interested in 19th-century travel and England.
