A New English Translation of Pueckler-Muskau's Hints on Landscape Gardening!

news_puckler_pic1.pngThe Foundation for Landscape Studies is proud to announce the latest publication in its book series: a new translation of Hints on Landscape Gardening by Prince Hermann von Pückler-Muskau, one of the most important treatises on landscape design ever written.

This elegantly designed book, published in association with Birkhaüser, heralds a revival of Pückler’s reputation as Germany’s “Green Prince,” a landscape-design genius on a par with Frederick Law Olmsted. His lifework, Park Muskau, a UNESCO World Heritage site occupying 1.4 square miles spanning the River Neisse in Lusatia, has undergone significant restoration after lying neglected behind the Iron Curtain from the end of World War II until 1991.

Our edition of Hints on Landscape Gardening introduces the reader to this magnificent landscape through Pückler’s own words and the images he commissioned to accompany them. The text of this still-relevant 1834 guide to park design was translated by John Hargraves, and the beautiful colored lithographic plates are reproduced from the original German edition.
