Incorporating new findings from excavations in this edition, a Dutch garden architect and visiting professor at Kyoto U. of Art and Design traces the evolution of Japanese garden art and garden theory from the eras of palace and temple gardens as aristocratic art to modern approaches. The final chapter interprets taste as creativity within simplicity as exemplified by specific gardens. Includes b&w photographs and sketches, and a glossary of Japanese characters. Originally published in 1988 as Themes, scenes, and taste in the history of Japanese garden art by J.C. Gieben, Amsterdam. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
