"Ex libra Sir Michael Levey (dir. National Gallery 1973-86); & prior to that of Cecil Gould (Keeper & deputy Director National Gallery)" Published in 4 languages, this book details, with fold out plans (all present) and hundreds of engraved plates (a handful are absent) the architectural and garden features and statuary installed at Versailles by King Louis XIX.

Only 13 copies are held throughout the world's great libraries, many copies being deficient of various engraved plates, as here.
This copy, in its original boards, is inscribed with the name of its several owners, and came on the open market when the Art Library of Sir Michael Levey
was disposed of by public auction in Louth, Lincolnshire, in 2009
