The Red Books for Brandsbury and Glemham Hall

Humphry Repton; Introduction by Stephen Daniels

Dumbarton Oaks Other Titles in Garden and Landscape Studies

Historical Texts: Facsimiles and Translations, Landscape Architecture History, Garden and Landscape Studies


“This admirable reprint, produced in America at the Stinehour Press, shows Repton’s confidence and persuasive charm at an early stage in his career; it would have been difficult to resist the double overlay at Glemham or his sketches of a Gothic Seat and Reposoir at Brandsbury.” Country Life

This publication reproduces all the text pages and illustrations from the two Red Books in the collection of the Garden Library at Dumbarton Oaks; that for Brandsbury, produced in 1789 as the first Red Book, and the one for Glemham Hall, produced in 1791.
