Excerpt from the Preface: The circumstances which produced the Work entitled : RURAL RESIDENCES, by the same Author in 1818, have also been the parents of this Essay. During the years 1819 and 1820, the following designs for Garden Buildings were presented to the Public in the Repository of Arts, immediately succeeding the ; Rural Residences ; which subject related more to the theory and practice of such buildings than of Garden Improvement. From the patronage bestowed on that Work the proprietor of the Repository is now induced to publish, in a collective form, the Hints on Ornamental Gardening ; and so as to produce an accompanying volume, in doing which, many additions have been made, and the deficiencies in part supplied, which necessarily belonged to the first desultory manner of publication. Like the former Essay ; this Work ; neither affords nor assumes to afford information to the Architect : Its pretentions are limited to the desirable task of shewing to those persons, who have as yet thought but little on the subJect, that Ornamental Gardening is amenable to the principles of Pictorial Art; etc. Size: Facsimile Bound Reprint Edition / Replica of Origi
