Labyrinths Ancient Paths of Wisdom and Peace

By Westbury, Virginia

Da Capo Press, 2003-10-01. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. edge wear to boards; A maze, a prison, a sacred precinct, a place of peace - for thousands of years the human mind has puzzled over the enigma of the labyrinth. This book traces the origins of the phenomenon. Archaeology dates it back to the Bronze Age, when simple seven-circuit models began to emerge in Europe, the Middle East and parts of Asia. Popular during Roman times, the labyrinth reached its peak during the medieval period, when elaborate eleven-circuit models appeared on the paved floors of churches and cathedrals across France and Italy, as well as in the fields of Britain and Germany. In recent years there has been a significant revival of interest in the labyrinth, and the author explores the question of why it should particularly appeal to us now. She looks at the many extraordinary ways in which labyrinths are being used today: as tools for meditation, as a means of connecting with the mysteries of nature, or simply as elegant puzzles for us to solve. The book concludes with an extensive gazetteer, indicating where the world's finest labyrinths can be found.

Flowers for All Seasons: A Guide to Colorful Trees, Shrubs and Vines

By Cox, Jeff; Cox, Marilyn

Emmaus, PA: Rodale Press, 1988-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. corners bumped, some light edge wear; This companion volume to The Perennial Garden comprises an artful guide to ornamental garden design and maintenance. Here the authors focus on "woody perennial flowers,trees, shrubs, and vines that may be evergreen or deciduous, but whose woody stems, branches and trunks . . . are the skeletal structure on which nature hangs her annual, fresh green growth." Strategies for implementing a thematically cohesive yet un-stylized landscape include plant selection and placement (the balanced juxtaposition of opposites in texture, size, shape and color; the unifying pairing of similar foliage types; the dramatic use of distinctive shrubs at transitional junctions; working with existing land forms and indigenous vegetation) and "artistic" maintenance or pruning. Integral here are more than 120 pages of growth charts "designed to simplify the task of selecting plants"; "featured flowers of the month" (e.g., April, the crabapple); a hardiness-zone map; a common-name index; and a listing of mail-order sources. Extensive black-and-white illustrations supplement the text, while 79 color photographs vividly depict the "natural movements and rhythms of plants" that the gardener is encouraged to highlight.
