any of the sumptuous halls androoms of the people of wealth, and no better way canbe obtained of learning how the favored few live. ^ The building of the great homes of America has necessarily involved the development of their sur-rounding grounds and gardens; the work of the landscape gardener has rivaled, in its dignity and spacious beauty, that of the archi-tect. If but little is known of our great estates, still less is known of their gardens, of which, in spite of the comparatively short periodthat has been given for their growth, we have some very noble instances among us, which are illustrated and described in the presentvolume. €f This work is printed on heavy plate paper and contains 340 pages 10/^x13/^ inches, enriched with 275 illustrations,of which eight are in duotone. It is handsomely bound in green cloth, and stamped in black and gold, and, in addition to beingthe standard work on notable houses and gardens in America, unquestionably forms a most attractive gift book.
