2 American Society of Landscape Architects Illustrations of Work of Members 1932
New York House of J. Hayden Twiss 1932 First Edition Paper Fine Issued Without Jacket Periodical 
Introduction by Henry Vincent Hubbard. Illustrated with 214 photographs and plans, including lots of period advertising, some of which is as interesting as the members' work. Mostly, but not all residential work: my own Brooklyn Botanic Garden is here, as is the Playland at Rye, New York, Pomona College, plan for the City of Boulder, Colorado, and one for St. Petersburg, Florida, Princeton University, and a Fort Worth subdivision. There are three plates from the Olmsted brothers and a surprising number of working women landscape architects in this issue. Index of advertisers, but none of the architects, whose work appears alphabetically. Fine in heavy textured paper, gilt embossed.

11 Schuyler, David Victorian Landscape Gardening: A Facsimile of Jacob Weidenmann's "Beautifying Country Homes"
Watkins Glen, NY The American Life Foundation for the Athenaeum Library of 19th Century America 1978 Facsimile Edition Paper Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
Four color plates and many more in black and white, including plans, illustrate this facsimile of Weidenmann's 1870 volume. In addition to designing the grounds of private residences, Weidenmann laid out Bushnell Park and Cedar Hill Cemetery in Hartford, Connecticut, and supervised the work of Olmsted and Vaux for the grounds of the Hartford Retreat for the Insane. Schuyler notes that Weidenmann represented the "romantic hostility toward urban life" prevalent in the late 19th century, and judging from these designs, he may be right. Fine in paper as issued.
