MAX L. KEITH, Lumber Exchange 534, MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. Society of Landscape Architects. Repton was born in 1752 and died in 1818, and the period covered by his life is in many respects the most important in the history of landscape garden- ing. In no other country and at no other time have the conditions been so favorable for realizing the best ideals of landscape gar- dening as with country gentlemen in England during the eighteenth century. And it is generally conceded that the world has not yet produced a designer in the informal or landscape style with the genius and skill of Repton. His work is one of the most notable achievements in his profession. He has to his credit the creation, transformation, or improve- ment of over two hundred important places. He himself was a country gentleman before he became a landscape gardener, and he knew nature at first hand. Yet notwithstanding the vast amount of beautiful landscape work he produced, his most notable contributions to his art are in his writings. The present volume contains two of his best works: "Sketches and Hints on Landscape Gardening,” published in 1795, and "The Theory and Practise of Landscape Garden- ing," published in 1803. It is issued in hand- Building Construction and Superintendence By F. E. KIDDER, C. E., Ph.D. Architect Author of " The Architects’ and Builders’ Pocket Book."
