The authors of this title examine each to bring out its original appearance and reception by contemporary visitors, and the three are also considered as a trio - as they often were at the time - bound together by topography and a remarkable networking of those involved in their creation. There is an intriguing chapter that discusses the history of the ferme ornA ee, which The Leasowes is traditionally considered to embody. The gardens were not only local treasures, but stand out prominently in any survey of the eighteenth-century English garden, reflecting a development of the mid-century pictorial, building-studded landscape towards the romantic and 'pictureque' taste of the later years of the century. This ground-breaking book contains much new material and previously unpublished illustrations
