New York City’s Central Park receives millions of visitors every year. A Description of the New York Central Park by Clarence C. Cook, published in 1869, is recognized as the most important book about the park to appear during its early years. This work has been republished with a new introduction by Maureen Meister that reveals Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux’s roles in the creation of the book, which served in part to champion their vision.
