Rescuing Eden : preserving America's historic gardens by Caroline Seebohm( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From simple 18th- and early 19th-century gardens to the lavish estates of the Gilded Age, the gardens started by 1930s inmates at Alcatraz in San Francisco Bay to the centuries-old camellias at Middleton Place near Charleston, South Carolina -- Rescuing Eden celebrates the history of garden design in the United States, with 28 examples that have been saved by conservationists and private owners, and opened to the public. The United States has a rich tradition of landscape design, with gardens on a scale that rivaled the great gardens of Europe, but in the absence of specific institutions dedicated to their preservation, many of these "ephemeral collaborations between man and nature" were lost -- during the wars, economic depressions, and social upheavals that swept the country in the mid-20th-century, or to creeping development and urban sprawl. The surviving gardens presented here were selected for the drama of their original creation and rescue and for their historical and horticultural importance. Discover The Kampong in Miami, Florida, planted with hundreds of tropical rarities from Southeast Asia by plant explorer Dr. David Fairchild; Barnsley Gardens in Georgia, one of the few antebellum gardens surviving in the South, planted with 200 varieties of roses; the Lynchburg, Virginia garden created by Harlem Renaissance poet and civil rights activist Anne Spencer; the eccentric Ladew Topiary Gardens, with 15 garden rooms and a topiary foxhunt; the Belle Epoque grandeur of the Untermyer Garden in Yonkers, New York; and many others across the country, in Kentucky, Texas, Michigan, Maine, Rhode Island, and California. Each garden has been specially photographed by landscape and garden photographer Curtice Taylor, and introduced with text from design historian Caroline Seebohm

Cottages and mansions of the Jersey shore by Caroline Seebohm( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Jersey shore is many things to many people. It is 127 miles of sand and surf, a sanctuary of untamed marshlands and endless dunes, a home to kitschy boardwalks, quirky shops, pulsing casinos, and countless examples of offbeat culture. But, above all, it is a powerful repository of nostalgia. The local historical societies are filled with photographs and memoirs describing what has been lost, landmarks razed, houses demolished, and beaches terminally eroded." "In this collection of personal accounts, historical anecdotes, and photographs, Caroline Seebohom and Peter C. Cook cast a fresh eye on the array of cottages, bungalows, and mansions that generation after generation have chosen as their summer homes. They explore the nineteenth-century palaces of Spring Lake and Bay Head, the private mansions of Deal and Allenhurst, and the surprises of Cape May Point. Through the cooperation of local residents, they also provide a rare look behind the walls and gates into properties that have never before been opened up to outsiders."--BOOK JACKET
