The Highgrove Florilegium

The first British royal Florilegium. Leading botanical artists from around the world were invited to record the flora at the Gloucestershire garden of TRH The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. The project was seven years in the making and each set is signed by HRH The Prince of Wales.

Catesby's Natural History

The first illustrated record of the flora and fauna of North America - Catesby's distinguished masterpiece The Natural History of Carolina, Florida & the Bahama Islands - has been reproduced as a limited edition and was published to mark the 300th anniversary of the arrival in 1712 of naturalist and artist Mark Catesby in the New World.

The Transylvania Florilegium

The process of recording the flora of Transylvania, famous for the richness and diversity of its plant life, took over six years with leading botanical artists visiting four times a year. 124 botanical illustrations have been completed and the collection is produced in this limited edition, signed by HRH The Prince of Wales.

“Drawn to perfection... A facsimile of an 18th-century work is thought to be the most expensive book published in Britain today... the first major illustrated book on the natural history of the British colonies of North America, whose original is held in the Royal Collection”

Dalya Alberge, The Sunday Times on Catesby's Natural History

“Something as special as The Highgrove Florilegium should surely come along just once or twice in every lifetime”

The Financial Times

‘The Book of Kells ‘one of the most important and spectacular illuminated manuscripts in Europe’
