The Flora Graeca (1806-40) took 54 years to produce and contains accurate watercolour paintings by European botanical artist, Ferdinand Bauer (1760-1826).

He made hundreds of sketches during a two-year trip in Greece and Turkey and then spent six years painting them in Oxford.

It's estimated he made one every one-and-a-half days and used a unique numbering system to ensure he used the most accurate colours.

In some cases, he saw the plant or animal once and painted it up to six years later. 

Researchers at the library are still studying his unique methods and techniques.

Charity looking for ageing parents who support disabled adults

A charity says authorities need to know how many ageing parents in Oxfordshire are caring for adult children with learning disabilities in order to properly support them. 

The Oxfordshire Family Support Network is working with the council to find out the exact number of people affected. 

The charity has described them as the forgotten families because they often don't seek help - but this causes problems when the parents fall ill or die.  

Here's a nice picture
