CHARLES ELIOT
LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT

EDITED BY CHARLES W. ELIOT

With portraits, views, plans, and sketches

" Looked at from the technical standpoint, ' Charles Eliot, Landscape
Architect ' is of remarkable interest and value to two classes of people :

" Any one who is fortunate enough to get a good income of pleasure
out of the beauty of the world in which he lives and works often has
occasion to deplore the needless sacrifice of that valuable element. For
such a one this book is not only stimulating and encouraging, but inform-
ing : it crystallizes vague notions into the form of clear-cut ideas fit to
serve as the basis for intelligent action ; it shows how a man, who in-
herited among other things the clear vision and executive ability of
President Eliot, has pursued such ideas to successful accomplishment.

" To the landscape architect, and to the student of landscape archi-
tecture, the book is all this and more. It is not a text-book ; it does not
deal systematically and categorically with principles of design, nor does
it in the least degree furnish ' recipes for laying out grounds.' What it
does, as well as a book can do, is to put the student in contact with the
personality of a master as he goes about his work, to give an under-
standing of his point of view, of his aims, and of his methods in dealing
with such problems as fall to him to solve. No other treatment of the
subject could so well awaken an intelligent appreciation of the wide
range of principles involved in these problems."

FREDEKICK LAW OLMSTED, JR.,

Instructor in Landscape Architecture at Harvard University and
member of the firm of Olmsted Brothers, Landscape Architects.
