LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

London: Bloomsbury, 2006. Publishers original maroon cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Dustwrapper: unclipped, now protected in Brodart. Illustrated endpapers, no inscriptions. 370pp including index. Warmonger, womaniser and autocrat, Louis XIV, France's self-styled 'Sun King', was also history's most fanatical gardener. At Versailles, twelve miles outside Paris, he created not only Europe's most lavish palace, but also the most extensive gardens the Western world has ever seen. The domain of Versailles now covers 1,890 acres (about twice the size of New York's Central Park), but in its heyday under Louis, the Grand Pare covered an astounding 19,800 acres. Assisting Louis in all this was a lowly born gardener Andre Le Notre, whose character and temperament were as different from those of his sovereign as it is possible to conceive. In this lavishly illustrated book Ian Thompson reveals with knowledge, wit and insight the intertwined stories of an extraordinary garden and an extraordinary friendship. This book weighs 1.3kg.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Mint/Mint. 4to.
