FREDERICK LAW OLMSTED: PLANS AND VIEWS OF PUBLIC PARKS -- THE PAPERS OF FREDERICK LAW OLMSTED, SUPPLEMENTARY SERIES, VOLUME 2. Ed. by Charles E. Beveridge et al. Johns Hopkins University Press, Baltimore, 2015. 446 pp. with 478 ills. (129 col.). 29 x 29 cm. ISBN 9781421410869 In English.
Publisher's description: Bringing together Olmsted's most significant parks, parkways, park systems, and scenic reservations, this volume takes readers on a uniquely conceived tour of such notable landscapes as Central Park, Prospect Park, the Buffalo Park and Parkway System, Washington Park and Jackson Park in Chicago, Boston's "Emerald Necklace," and Mount Royal in Montreal, Quebec. No such guide to Olmsted's parks has ever been published. Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) planned many parks and park systems across the United States, leaving an enduring legacy of designed public space that is enjoyed and defended today. His public parks, the design of which he was most proud, have had a lasting effect on urban America. This book will appeal to landscape professionals, park administrators, historians, architects, city planners, and students--and it is a perfect gift for Olmsted aficionados throughout North America.
