Oblong folio, title blocked in gilt, dedication to Grand Duke Maximilian Joseph of Austria, 12 hand coloured lithographed plates, each with a tissue paper naming the trees, plants and shrubs depicted on each plate beneath. Purple moire endpapers, in original red pebble grained-cloth boards, blocked in blind to boards, embossed title in gilt to upper board. The author was Court Gardener, and the 11 pages of German text, composed by Antoine, give a list of plants, bulbs, shrubs and trees in the gardens and indicate from which geographical area of the world they came. The views of the large conservatory are impressive.
