Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing the American Landscape / Edition 1by Charles Beveridge, Paul Rocheleau
Pub. Date: 09/28/2005
This timely volume, following the format of Rizzoli's successful Masterworks series, presents the breadth of Olmstted's work in expansive, beautiful color photographs by Paul Rocheleau, who conceived this book. The engaging text illuminates Olmsted's role as an indefatigable administrator and social reformer, a man who slept a scant few hours each night and rallied around causes ranging from anti-slavery to sanitary regulation.
