SUMMARY

Stored behind the thick walls of the Vaduz Castle lay a priceless manuscript - the 14 volume Liber Regni Vegetabilis. This work, created in the 18th century, and quite unknown until now, contains naturalistic illustrations of some 3,100 different plant species from all over the world, depicted in captivating beauty and exceptional detail.This is truly a work of superlatives: for more than 30 years several highly qualified specialists worked together to capture in art the native plants of Lower Austria and Moravia. More than half of the watercolor paintings is the work of Franz and Ferdinand Bauer, who are among the most famous botanical illustrators of all time. Indeed, Ferdinand Bauer has been described - with justification - as the "Leonardo of natural history illustration".This is a work of outstanding quality, truly a Garden for Eternity.Lack, H. W. is the author of 'Garden for Eternity: The Codex Liechtenstein' with ISBN 9783716512258 and ISBN 3716512257.
