Description

Published in 1904, this book recounts the epic rise and fall of the most majestic king of all: Louis XIV, Le Roy Soleil, from his accession to the throne in 1643. More than forty sumptuous color engravings illustrate the course of France's most famous king, a dazzling symbol of absolute authority and infinite power. This genuine work of art, first published by Gustave Toudouze and now reissued by Assouline, gives a glimpse of the life in Versailles, its courtiers, and its splendors. Respecting the integrity of the first edition, Assouline has decided to publish only a French version, making this publication a noble showpiece. From its spectacular gold-stamped cover to its sublime layout, Le Roy Soleil is indeed a fitting jewel case in which the story of the Sun King will enter posterity.
