"This book is the first comprehensive study of an architect and landscape designer who was largely forgotten by history because the precarious circumstances in which he lived. Forced to flee France during the Revolution, Ramee spent his life as a nomad. Staying only briefly in most places, he was soon forgotten, his work sometimes attributed to other architects. In this reconstruction of his career, the author demonstrates how Ramee, in the process of his travels, transmitted innovations from country to country and created a unique synthesis of the design currents of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries."
