"The Transylvania Florilegium is a fine-art edition in two volumes. Half-bound in 'Chieftain' goatskin leather specially prepared by J.Hewit & Sons, with hand-marbled paper and finished with gold leaf. The Transylvania Florilegium is a sumptuous collection of stunning botanical art created by artists, craftsmen and women, botanists and scholars, and with a Preface written by HRH The Prince of Wales. Each set is signed by The Prince."

"The publication of Transylvania Florilegium sees the completion of a long-term project with some of the world's finest contemporary botanical artists. We present a collection of watercolours chosen to record the flora of Transylvania, an area that is famous for the richness and diversity of its plant life. HRH The Prince of Wales is a passionate supporter of the conservation of this precious environment, and the paintings of the florilegium were created by artists studying the flora at his properties at Viscri and Zalanpatak."
