The Most Glorious Prospect reveals the historic gardens of Wales as experienced by contemporary travelers and tourists. Endlessly fascinating, intricately detailed, and delightfully humorous, it relates how the great gardens were first made accessible to the polite world before being opened up to a wider, middle-class audience. A bygone era of garden visiting is brought to life using travelers' diaries, letters, and experiences, as well as more than 200 photographs, watercolors, sketches, and maps.
