Edith Wharton’s Italian Gardens
Edith Wharton’s 1904 garden literature classic, Italian Villas and their Gardens, is reinterpreted here more than 100 years later by garden writer Vivian Russell, who followed Wharton’s journey around Italy. Russell’s lively text describes the patrons and architects who created the gardens and explores their hidden symbolic meaning. She includes the insights of Wharton and other literary garden visitors such as Charles Dickens and Henry James.

Vivian Russell is a photographer and writer. Her books include the award-winning Monet’s Garden, Monet’s Water Lilies, Monet’s Landscapes and Gnomes.

...it was a delight to go through this book and see many of the gardens I had seen while on tours, brought back so many memories...
