About this book

Ferdinand Bauer (the Austrian explorer and artist) has left the world an extraordinary legacy of many thousands of the finest botanical and zoological drawings.

"The work of Ferdinand Bauer has frequently been referred to in [...] superlative terms. For many he is the supreme botanical draughtsman, the Leonardo of natural history painting."
- Bernard Smith in Terra Australis
