Flagg, Wilson Ms.  (American, 1805-1844)

This book contains 22 early heliotypes (collotypes) after negatives by Wilson Flagg. Flagg was one of the earliest landscape architects who argued that nature should be a vital part of a growing community. The planting of parks and small secluded gardens amid housing offers both a break from monotony and also a chance to see nature in spite of the demand for more housing. He devotes chapters to the indigenous trees of New England as well as the historic homes built in what were once primitive forests.
