In publisher's illustrated wrappers, printed in green and black. 215, (1) p. Thoroczkai-Wigand's rare work on gardens, gardening and garden architecture, its history and design. Ede Toroczkai-Wigand (1869-1945) was a Hungarian architect and designer of decorative art. The thoughts of John Ruskin and the Arts and Crafts Movement had a major influence on him. He had the idea that art, architecture, folk customs and language is a complex structure and this complexity or "holism" reflecting in the unique character of his works. Beside being a prolific architect and designer, who was awarded at many international exhibitions (Paris, 1900; Torino, 1902; St. Louis, 1904), Toroczkai-Wigand published bibliophilic books like this piece, partly on his works and partly about the art, architecture and the folk tales of the Székelys in Transylvania. In these publications he combined the content and the typography into a special unity, in the manner of the unique Transylvanian Art Nouveau style.
