Edith Wharton, “Italian Villas and Their Gardens”


Wharton’s classic treatise on “Italian garden-magic.” 1904 first edition text


Edith Wharton’s Italian Villas and Their Gardens, a seminal work on garden design, is a testament to the passionate connoisseurship of one of America’s greatest writers. A comprehensive look at the history and character of Italian garden architecture and ornamentation, the book explores more than seventy-five villas, capturing what Wharton calls their “garden-magic” and illuminating the intimate relationship between the house, its formal gardens, and the surrounding countryside.
