9780711229709: The Gardens of the Vatican

Twenty-seven years in the making, The Gardens of the Vatican is a private photographic tour of eight centuries of 'green thoughts in a green shade'. The several gardens in the Vatican territory reflect the history of gardens in general. In addition to the Persian-influenced quadrant gardens of the Teuton Cemetery and the Secret garden, adorned with lemon-trees in pots, there are gardens in the Italian, French and English styles. The book is rich in anecdote and detail: Pope John XXIII liked to ramble along the pathways and chat with the gardeners. His predecessor Pius XII wanted solitude, so the gardeners were obliged to hide. There is a fragment of the Berlin Wall, a Chinese pavilion given by the Catholics of that country, and a gnarled old olive tree transplanted from Gethsemane in the Holy Land. The Gardens of the Vatican offers a fascinating and inspiring glimpse of a bachelor's refuge, through eight centuries of history.

Recensione:

A work of staggering vision and dedication, 27 years in the making, which gives a rare, fascinating and inspiring glimpse of the Vatican's grand gardens. ( Bookseller)

Kildare Dobbs's rich narrative at the beginning of the book prepares the reader for the visual delights which follow… The shrines, mementoes of spiritual events, statues, fountains and buildings commissioned by various Popes through the centuries, shine through Linda Kooluris Dobbs photographs and serve to give us avery distinctive and personal insight into one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. ( Reckless Gardener)

The atmospheric photographs unfold like a private tour of the grounds. ( Amateur Gardening)

This magnificent book is a fascinating and inspiring glimpse of the Holy Fathers' refuge through eight centuries of history. Linda's beautiful photographs provide a private photographic tour of "green thoughts in a green shade." ( Universe)

To discuss all the aspects of the Gardens here would demand too much space, but the author has done her subject proud in this book in presenting them all in a collection of essays and excellent photographs, including all the administrative buildings. ( Catholic Herald)

A poetic contemplation on garden history… Most of the book is taken up with photographs by Linda Koolaris Dobbs, who uses many imaginative angles and techniques to describe every corner of the gardens. ( Historic Gardens Review)

When in Rome, though too big for your hand luggage, you might find Gardens of the Vatican an appropriate primer. ( Oldie)

Linda Kooluris Dobbs uses her lenses, and many imaginative angles and techniques to describe every corner of the gardens. ( Mediterranean Garden)

L'autore:

Linda Kooluris Dobbs began her photographic record of the Vatican Gardens in 1981 with a very old and trustworthy Nikon F2. Her photographs have been published in The National Post and have been the subject of a major exhibition in Toronto in 2002.

Descrizione libro Frances Lincoln March 2009, 2009. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Twenty-seven years in the making, 'The Gardens of the Vatican' is a private photographic tour of eight centuries of 'green thoughts in a green shade.' Reflecting the general history of gardening, the several gardens in the Vatican span worlds -- the Persian-influenced quadrant gardens of the Teuton Cemetery and the Secret garden (adorned with lemon-trees in pots) are joined by gardens in the Italian, French, and English styles. The book is also rich in anecdote and detail: Pope John XXIII liked to ramble along the pathways and chat with the gardeners whereas his predecessor, Pius XII, wanted solitude, so the gardeners were obliged to hide. There is a fragment of the Berlin Wall, a Chinese pavilion given by the Catholics of that country, and a gnarled old olive tree transplanted from Gethsemane in the Holy Land. This gorgeously illustrated book offers a fascinating and inspiring glimpse of a bachelors' refuge, through nearly a millennium of history. Very nice clean, tight copy free of any marks.
