Description

By Elisabeth De Feydeau, Alain Baraton, and Catherine Pegard

Take a horticultural tour of Marie-Antoinette's domain, the lavishly constructed gardens at Versailles, accompanied by 18th-century archival illustrations. Plants, flowers, and trees were Marie-Antoinette's passion; she transformed the Petit Trianon's gardens into an enchanted escape from the oppressive shackles of Versailles. Based on archival documents, this book meanders through Marie-Antoinette's estate as the queen herself would have walked, traversing hyacinths, buttercups, and anemones in the French Gardens, via winding paths in the Anglo-Chinese Gardens, through the conifers of the Belvedere Gardens—where fabulous nocturnal parties were hosted—past the entrancing aromas of the shrubs surrounding the Temple of Love to the wildflowers of the Garden of Solitude.
