Most widely held works by S. B Sutton
Charles Sprague Sargent and the Arnold Arboretum by S. B Sutton( Book )

9 editions published in 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Arnold Arboretum's place among the world's great botanical gardens is in large part due to the skill and determination of its first director, Charles Sprague Sargent. In 1872, when Sargent was given the responsibility of creating an arboretum for Harvard, there were no American arboreta he could use as models. Yet the plan of development he established for the Arboretum was so sound that subsequent directors have adhered to it with few variations. This book, commissioned by the Arboretum to celebrate its hundredth anniversary, is both a biography of Sargent and a history of the institution's growth

Civilizing American cities; a selection of Frederick Law Olmsted's writings on city landscapes by Frederick Law Olmsted( Book )

21 editions published between 1971 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) designed New York City's Central Park, Brooklyn's Prospect Park, Chicago's South Park and Jackson Park, Montreal's Mount Royal Park, the park systems of Boston and Buffalo, and many others. But Olmsted also designed parkways and neighborhoods, reshaping cities around their parks. He thus reinvented the American urban landscape as a democratic outdoor setting that encouraged a new kind of participation in city life. Olmsted was one of the most gifted of American writers of his generation: prior to designing Central Park, he had written five important books, including The Cotton Kingdom (an account of his travels in the slave states), and his writings on American landscapes are unfailingly lively, eloquent, and passionate. Civilizing American Cities collects Olmsted's plans for New York, San Francisco, Buffalo, Montreal, Chicago, and Boston; his suburban plans for Berkeley, California and Riverside, Illinois; and a generous helping of his writings on urban landscape in general. These selections, expertly edited and introduced, are not only enjoyable but essential reading for anyone interested in the history - and the future - of America's cities. -- Book cover
