THOMAS MAWSON: Life, Gardens and Landscapes
London: Frances Lincoln, 2009

Quarto. 240 pp; full of color & b/w illustrations; bibliography; list of commissions; index. Cloth with dustjacket. Fine/Fine, a new copy. Thomas Hayton Mawson (1881-1933) began designing gardens in the 1890s. He forged his distinctive style - solid formality round the house with foreground terraces and balustrades - in the Lake District, where his genius allowed the garden to open out into the landscape. From humble beginnings he was soon the most sought-after garden and landscape designer of the day. In 1908 he was chosen to design the Peace Gardens at The Hague. Mawson, who was a great teacher and advocate for landscape architecture as a profession, published five editions of The Art and Craft of Garden Making between 1900 and 1926. His Civic Art, reflecting his great interest in the design of towns and public parks, came out in 1911.

Connolly, Cyril & Peter Levi
SHADE THOSE LAURELS
NY: Pantheon, 1991

First American edition. Octavo. 174 pp. Cloth backed boards in dustjacket. Jacket has light edgewear and closed tear on top edge of back panel. NF/VG. This literary whodunit, set in postwar Britain and replete with literary and gastronomic allusions, was left unfinished by Connolly at his death in 1974 and was completed by Oxford scholar and poet Peter Levi, to whom he divulged the denouement. An aristocratic cast of suspects has gathered at the country estate of famed author Sir Mortimer Gussage to celebrate his birthday and knighthood. When Sir Mortimer succumbs later that evening to an untimely death, it falls to his young admirer and protege, Stephen Kemble, to piece together the parts of this intriguing puzzle. Kemble makes his way through drawing rooms, greenhouses, and garden mazes to arrive at a genuinely surprising ending. Levi succeeds in bringing Connolly's stylish mystery to a seamless conclusion.
