From New Arcadian Press:

Patrick Eyres and Karen Lynch, On The Spot: The Yorkshire Red Books of Humphry Repton, Landscape Gardener (Leeds: New Arcadian Press, 2018), 206 pages, £20.

The nine Yorkshire commissions of Humphry Repton spanned the twenty years between 1790 and 1810. Patrick Eyres and Karen Lynch enlarge the knowledge of his landscape gardening in Yorkshire in general, by offering new insights into these commissions, and, in particular, by reproducing the six extant Red Books that he produced for patrons in the county.
