Why we love this
The Sun King's Garden: Louis XIV and the Creation of the Gardens of Versailles, by Ian Thompson. London: Bloomsbury, 1988. First printing. Louis XIV not only created the world's most lavish palace at Versailles, but commissioned the most extensive gardens the Western world had ever seen. At their height, the scheme covered an area about 20 times bigger than New York's Central Park.
