The Magazine Antiques Praises Morgan’s Book on de Caus

Luke Morgan’s Nature as Model: Salomon de Caus and Early Seventeenth-Century Landscape Design appears in the "Books about antiques" section of the March 2007 issue of The Magazine Antiques.  According to the review:

The
chapter devoted to [the
Hortus Palatinus castle garden,
built for the elector of
the Palatinate Frederick V and
his wife, Elisabeth Stuart]
is worth the price of the book
alone, for Morgan ably demonstrates
how all of de Caus’s
considerable skills and abilities
came together at this difficult
site; and because there
are so many period images,
the text comes alive in ways
that descriptions of some of de
Caus’s earlier projects do not.
