HUMPHRY REPTON LANDSCAPE GARDENER. 1752 - 1818.
Norwich: Sainsbury Center for Visual Arts, 1982. Although published in conjunction with the important Repton exhibition at the University of East Anglia in Norwich and at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London during 1982-1983, this volume is significantly more than an exhibition catalogue. The well annotated text covers various aspects of Repton's career and provides a valuable scholarly update to the definitive study of Repton written by Dorothy Stroud 20 years earlier. Among the several useful appendices are a full bibliography of sources and an annotated "Gazetteer" of Repton's commissions. Oblong 4to (21 x 29.7 cm); xvi + 176 pp. with 148 text illustrations (6 in color).
Original printed paper wraps with some wrinkling and edgewear; internally fine.
