C. Z. Guest's First Garden
C. Z. Guest
First Garden: An Illustrated Garden Primer
with Cecil Beaton, and Truman Capote.
New York: Putnam's, 1976.
First printing, designed by Bea Feitler.
Renowned socialite C. Z. Guest wrote this for her friends, with simple steps to creating the elements of a first garden, after a riding accident confined her to bed.
Profusely illustrated by Cecil Beaton and introduced by Truman Capote, it is a lot more practical than you might imagine from such a heady mix of authors.
