156.The garden of the Count de Nassau (fig. 33.) affords a very favourable specimen of the genuine Dutch taste. A remarkably good engraving of it is given in Le Rouge's Collection of Designs, from which the accompanying figure is copied; and it will stand in our pages as a faithful representation of a style which is now no longer to be seen in such perfection in any country.
