"A fascinating new door stop of a book... [whose]revealing glimpses into the mind of America's greatest landscape architect take on fresh relevance."

"It goes without saying—yet it must be said—the editors David Schuyler and Gregory Kaliss, with Jeffrey Schlossberg as assistant editor, continue to perform a massive task... There are indeed hoards of materials here that will be perhaps not just looted but used and cited punctiliously by scholars and modern architects."

"The excellence of the scholarship... as well as [the] comprehensiveness is indisputable. Needless to say, those deeply interested in the works of Olmsted would be remiss indeed not to at least consider the acquisition of these volumes for their respective permanent collections."

"Essential. Academic and general readers; practicing landscape professionals."

"This is the last volume of an amazing scholarly project that began in 1972... Olmsted and his firm produced an extraordinary amount of correspondence (in today's world it is hard to imagine such length and thought) of which a huge amount surviving in several archives has been mined for these volumes. The level of scholarship, footnotes, and explanation is a model for any scholar."

"Once again, the editors of the Olmsted Papers have collected a treasure ripe for looting."
