Publisher's description: Traditions surrounding landscape architecture are age old in China. With in-depth coverage, China Forestry Publishing House conquers the amazing history of the landscapes and gardens of China in two volumes, dividing the subject matter geographically into north and south. Nearly all ancient landscape architectures, including imperial gardens, temples, shrines, pavilions, pagodas, tombs, private gardens and historic seats of government from throughout China are revealed through photographs, drawings and descriptive texts. Manipulated landscapes are inextricably linked to architecture proper in the context of Chinese gardens, and as such the buildings are also well documented throughout.
