MANY years have elapsed since the production of a former Work, under the title of "Observations on the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening;" during which, the Author's attention has been called to such variety of subjects, such interesting scenery, and such novelty of expedients, that a second volume under the former title might have been expected; (the whole of two editions of that Work are entirely sold, and the volume is become very scarce.) The contents of the present volume, which appears under a new title, will be found neither to be a continuation nor a contradiction of the former Observations; but, from the subject's being elucidated by new and more beautiful examples, the Author's former principles in "the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening" will be confirmed.
