Charles Bridgeman and the English Landscape Garden, Willis, Peter ( Editor )
14 Willis, Peter ( Editor ) Charles Bridgeman and the English Landscape Garden
Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom Elysium Press 2002 2002 0904712044 / 9780904712049 Reprint Hardcover Fine 4to. 
pp. xxi., 532 including 247 pages of plates. A reprint of the original Zwemmer 1977 edition, with a catalogue of new material, and new illustrations. Charles Bridgeman (died 1738) was a key figure in the establishment of "le jardin anglais", that remarkable English invention which was to sweep 18th-century Europe. Bridgeman's role in the transition from the geometric layouts of the early 1700s to the freer designs of Capability Brown was a crucial one. His activities as Royal Gardener to George II and Queen Caroline embraced Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park and Richmond, while for private patrons he was active at Claremont, Eastbury, Wimpole, Marble Hill and a host of other country houses. A collaborator with Vanbrugh, Gibbs and Kent, and a friend of writers and artists, Bridgeman reached the peak of his career in the creation of Stowe in Buckinghamshire, the most celebrated landscape of the day. Peter Willis's pioneering biography of Charles Bridgeman, originally published in 1977 by A. Zwemmer Ltd in their distinguished "Studies in Architecture" series, drew on fresh documentary evidence to place Bridgeman securely in the context of contemporary changes in taste. The first edition of 1000 copies has long been out of print.
