Moments in Eden features 85 breathtakingly beautiful photographs of gardens and garden scenes from all over the world. Many are famous, such as Versailles, Sissinghurst, Keukenhof, Giverny, and Winterthur. Others are as nameless as a facade of window boxes in Switzerland or a wisteria vine clinging to the worn stones of a Cotswold cottage. All are superb examples of the art of America's leading landscape photographer. Richard Brown's photographs have been compared with those of Eliot Porter. As Thomas Cooper, the editor of Horticulture, wrote,"Brown has a rare talent for discovering the art that is latent in gardens and for being true to the garden and its mood."
1989. First edition, first printing. A fine, unmarked copy in a near fine, unclipped d/w with only light curling to the top edge.
