Read full description of the books:
Vor zwei Jahrhunderten suchte ein Prinz auf ungewöhnliche Weise Unsterblichkeit zu erlangen. Während andere mit glorreichen Schlachten in die Geschichte eingehen wollten, Denkmäler errichteten oder zukunftsweisende Gesetze verabschiedeten, entschloß sich dieser Prinz, sein Leben der Schaffung imaginärer Städte zu widmen. Die Stadt als Enzyklopädie – das ist das große Vorhaben des Prinzen. Architekten, Kartographen, Philologen und andere Spezialisten aus allen Bereichen entwerfen diese perfekte Stadt, die aus einem Museum und einer Bibliothek bestehen soll, in der das gesamte Wissen der Menschheit gesammelt ist.
