Prospect Park Handbook.

New York: Long Island University Press, 1972. Reissue. Perfect Bound. Octavo, pp. 128, indexed, illustrated with b/w photographs. Very Good. Item #21923

Wonderful history of Prospect Park, an urban park in Brooklyn adjacent to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and one of Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux's most beautiful parks. The author describes the planning of the park, discusses the changes that have been made during its first century, and suggests what should be done to restore it with justice alike to the Olmsted-Vaux plans and modern needs. Anyone who loves the park will find it fascinating. Very scarce. From the Old House Journal reference library.
