THOMPSON, IAN - The Sun King's Garden  Louis XIV, Andre Le Notre and the Creation of the Gardens of Versailles

Title: The Sun King's Garden Louis XIV, Andre Le Notre and the Creation of the Gardens of Versailles
Description: Bloomsbury, London, 2006. Quarto; hardcover; dark red boards with gilt spine title and decoration, and decorated endpapers; 370pp., with many monochrome and full-colour illustrations. Very mild wear; one or two faint spots on text block edges. Dustwrapper now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Near fine. Warmonger, womaniser and autocrat, Louis XIV, France's self-styled 'Sun King', was also history's most fanatical gardener. Versailles stands as his monument. And assisting Louis in his fanaticism was of course the lowly born gardener-genius, Andre Le Notre. In this lavishly illustrated book the author shows the nature of the extraordinary alliance these two utterly dissimilar men formed during their horticultural adventures.
