Gardens of History and Imagination

Published to coincide with the bicentennial celebrations of the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney, Gardens of History and Imagination: Growing New South Wales will delight gardeners and history buffs alike. The book features ten scholars, members of the Independent Scholars Association (Sybil Jack, Janet George, Gaynor Macdonald, Ailsa McPherson, Colleen Morris, Gretchen Poiner, John Ramsland, Stuart Read, Catherine Rogers and Sue Rosen) exploring the social, cultural and economic significance of gardens in the history of New South Wales. The book is beautifully produced and richly illustrated with rarely seen images from the State Library’s Mitchell collections.
