Whe he died in 1881 William Burges was widely regarded as the most brilliant architect-designer of his generation. He was a Pre-Raphaelite architect, and like his Pre-Raphaelite friends he sought an artistic Holy Grail in a Victorian vision of the Middle Ages. In architecture he rivals Butterfield, Street and Norman Shaw. In furniture and stained glass he eclipses the finest work of Morris & Co. In jewellery and metalwork he is without rival, except perhaps for his hero Pugin. Scarce.

Chapters include sections on The Theory of the Garden, Art in a Garden and the "Landscape Garden". John Dando Sedding (1838-1891) was a church architect in Britain, working on new buildings and repair work, with an interest in a 'crafted Gothic' style. He was an influential figure in the Arts and Crafts movement, many of whose leading designers studied in his offices. They included Ernest Gimson, Ernest Barnsley and Herbert Ibberson. His 1889 lecture, "The Architectural Treatment of Gardens", was influential in the revival espoused by Reginald Blomfield, of "Jacobean" features such as terraces, covered walks, bowling greens, clipped yew hedges and topiary, which would combine with "cottage garden" elements in the Arts and Crafts gardens of 1890-1915.
