An updated edition of the Rizzoli classic to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of this seminal American landscape designer. A landscape architect, city planner, and creative genius who transformed the American landscape, Frederick Law Olmsted was a man of passionate vision. He defined the profession of landscape architecture and designed America' s most beloved parks and landscapes, many of them gorgeously illustrated here, including New York' s Central Park, Brooklyn' s Prospect Park, the U. S. Capitol grounds, and the lands and gardens of the Biltmore Estate. During a remarkable forty-year career that began in the mid-1800s, Olmsted created the first park systems, urban greenways, and suburban residential communities in this country. A comprehensive view of the man and his work, the new edition includes new photography of Olmsted' s masterworks Central and Prospect Parks, as well as a new introduction and new final chapter by the author that examines Olmsted' s ongoing influence.
Charles E. Beveridge is series editor of The Papers of Frederick Law Olmsted and research professor of history at American University. Paul Rocheleau is a distinguished photographer whose work has been published widely. David Larkin is a renowned editor and book designer.
