Struck by the magnificence of the Italian countryside from the time of her first sojourn there, Edith Wharton joined forces with Maxfield Parrish, the foremost illustrator of the time, to celebrate a subject that was dear to them both: the incomparable villas and gardens of Italy. She draws on three centuries of knowledge written in four languages and covers some 80 villa gardens and 60 garden architects. She describes the remarkable splendor of the villas for readers who have never seen them, and discovers for herself and the reader why the great houses and grounds create an effect of such profound calm and resolution.
