    • The History of the Modern Taste in Gardening.


    • WALPOLE, HORACE. The History of the Modern Taste in Gardening. 60 pp., 8vo, cloth. New York, Ursus Press, 1995.
      First published in 1780 as part of Horace Walpole's "Anecdotes of Painting in England", this essay on garden design is one of the most famous and influential narratives on the subject of the English landscape garden. Its renown centered around Walpole's claim that England had invented a modern and "natural" style of laying out gardens (as opposed to highly formalized French efforts), with the underlying assumption that the English landscape garden evolved in light of English political liberties. The present edition is based on the second edition published in 1782 and preserves the original spelling and punctuation. Announced for March.
