New from Press on Scroll Road

In my mailbox this week was a prospectus for a new book from Press on Scroll Road:

Some Rules of the Game: Essays on Garden Design by Sir Francis Bacon, Henry Mitchell and Roger Swain

SOME RULES OF THE GAME includes the essays "Of Gardens" by Sir Francis Bacon, "Up and Down the Garden Path - Or, Designs for Gardening" by Henry Mitchell, and the first printing of "A Light Touch" by Roger Swain.
