The Craft of Gardens

By Ji Cheng

Shanghai: Shanghai Press, 2012. Hardcover. New/new. Originally published in 1631, this is the earliest manual of Chinese garden design. This edition has been translated by Alison Hardie with a foreword by Maggie Keswick.

Even within the garden secrecy pervades with an emphasis on nooks, mazes, zig zag paths and other features that lure the visitor to explore further. 144 pages with several colour photographs of gardens built in Ji Cheng's style, an appendix, notes, dates of the Chinese dynasties and an index. 1.2 kg. Post free within Malaysia, but, due to its weight, this book is likely to incur additional postal charges when posted outside Malaysia
