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 [CT 4/18/2016] How should we incorporate this article?

Include: “How shall we attempt to describe this enchanting spot, this fairy ground of pleasure and festivity, where new scenes met the eye at every step. The splendid, every where diversified, illumination, the superb fireworks, the distant waterfall, faintly seen through the trees, attracting the attention and pointing itself out by its murmuring sound, the ship union elegantly lighted up, and shining with superior lustre, the artificial island with its farmhouse and garden, these and many other scenes almost pained the eye with delight.” “Grays Gardens,” The Federal Gazette, and Philadelphia Daily Advertiser (6 July 1790), p. 3.

[KP 6/15] 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 1843 edition. The quote is exactly the same, though it did change the page numbers from 327-328 to 239-240. Let me know if I should change it back to the 1845 version. https://www.zotero.org/groups/54737/items/itemKey/VJ3SM523/q/Gardening%20for%20Ladies%7C


[KP 6/30/15] Re: Inscribed Image and Figure 7 - File:0935 Changed Alexander Walsh, "Plan of a Garden," 1841 to Alexander Walsh, "Plan of a Garden,", and Pleasure Ground, 1841, in order to reflect the text
