Palaces : Masterpieces of Architecture

Author(s): Laura Brooks


Open the pages of this gorgeous volume and step inside the world's most spectacular homes. The history of the palace is more than just a survey of building styles; it is the very history of Europe. All across the continent, palaces grace the countryside with imposing architecture, beautiful gardens, and fascinating stories. Each of these magnificent royal homes testifies to immense wealth, luxurious taste, dynastic pride, political power, and family rivalry. From the pure theatricality of Versailles to the fairy-tale indulgences of Ludwig of Bavaria, palaces hold sway over the imagination and speak of other eras, other worlds.Along with a descriptive text, this volume offers 90 full-color views of palaces in Great Britain, Scandinavia, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Austria, and Russia.

1999. First edition. A fine copy in illustrated boards.
