„Pückler's park in Muskau served as a textbook example of park design for American students through much of the twentieth century" (Gert Gröning). Andeutungen über Landschaftsgärtnerei, the main work of Pückler-Muskau and classic source of landscape design, is made available here in a reliable and beautiful edition. The text is completed by the 44 views and four maps of the Muskau park in the Atlas that accompanied the original edition of 1834
