The Lure of the GardenBook - 1911
The Lure of the Garden by Hildegarde Hawthorne is a collection of poetry and prose about various gardens. The granddaughter of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Hildegarde was primarily an author of children's books. This title, however, is a reminiscent piece of work that addresses the nostalgia towards nature that is evoked in the beauty of cultivated gardens. Maxfield Parrish is one of many contributors and his work is featured along with a number of illustrations and photographs.
