Should John Warner Barber's view of Roxbury be included in the inscribed section (or on the page at all). Page 482 states: "A great part of this town is rocky land; hence the name of Rocks'bury; the soil is, however, strong, and in a very high state of cultivation, abounding in country seats and pleasure-grounds." But 483 starts the description of this image: "The above is a view on the elevated ground in the central part of Roxbury..." Pleasant ground is not mentioned [CT 6/12/15] https://archive.org/stream/historicalcollec00bar#page/482/mode/2up T.O'M: delete this image.

We need to update this after seeing Emily Beamish article on pleasure grounds in Philadelphia Studies in the History of Gardens & Designed Landscapes An International Quarterly Volume 35, Issue 3, 2015 History as a source for innovation in landscape architecture: the First World War landscapes in Flanders Steven Heyde pages 183-197

Enjoyment in the night: discovering leisure in Philadelphia’s eighteenth-century rural pleasure gardens Anne Beamish pages 198-212 http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/14601176.2015.1019274#.VX804_YpCxA

Changed the citation for Jane Loudon's Gardening for Ladies from the 1845 American edition to the 1843 American edition, in order to take advantage of Archive.org's digitized 1834 edition. The quote is exactly the same, though it did change the page numbers from 327-328 to 239-240. Let me know if you like me to change it back to the 1845 version. https://www.zotero.org/groups/54737/items/itemKey/VJ3SM523/q/Gardening%20for%20Ladies%7C
