Capability Brown and Humphry Repton by Edward Hyams( Book )

13 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by French and Italian landscape painting, a number of eighteenth-century artist-gardeners led by William Kent created an art-form unique in the West, althought favoured from times of antiquity in China and Japan: the picturesque garden - virtually a landscape picture made not of paint on canvas but of real country and buildings. Towering above the rest of the professional practitioners of this art, in terms both of genius and industry, were two remarkable men, Capability Brown and his successor Humphry Repton. Both transformed many thousands of acres of England and Wales from 'natural' into 'picturesque' landscape; both , in the course of their work, met many of the leading men of their day, and George III made a friend of Brown; both, in their different ways, exerted a lasting influence on other landscape designers, including those of America and Europe. -- Book jacket

Animals in the service of man by Edward Hyams( Book )

"This book is a fascinating history of association of animals with man. It discusses various theories of how, from being a mere hunter of animals for meat and hides, bone and horn, man became a stock-breeder and herdsman controlling, using and slowly transforming a number of species. The use of insects, fur animals, fish and snails in the human economy is also discussed"--Taken from CAB Direct website
