This vintage book comprises a comprehensive guide to Italian villas and their gardens - written by Edith Wharton.

This interesting and profusely illustrated guide will appeal to those with an interest in the beautiful villas of Italy, and it will be of special interest to fans and collectors of Wharton's work.

Edith Wharton (1862 - 1937) was a famous American writer and designer who won the Pulitzer prize and who was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1927, 1928 and 1930.

The chapters of this book include: 'Florentine Villas', 'Sienese Villas', 'Roman Villas', 'Villas Near Rome', 'Caprorola and Lante', 'Villa D'Este', 'Frascati', 'Genoese Villas', 'Lombard Villas', 'Villas of Vienetia', 'Lists of Books Mentioned', and 'Architects and Landscape Gardeners Mentioned'.

Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition.

It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
