The work of the author too is an inspiration: it shows the renovation of a part of Versailles, truly a behind the seen view not seen since the palace was visited by the various kings and queens who oversaw its initial construction.
It is an historical documentation with a wry expression of insight: by the photographer, by the publisher, and by those of the conservators maintaining the heritage of France. Each rely on the other to accomplish--brilliantly--this 3 volume set of books well worth the price.
For those collecting fine books but also as a legacy to be passed down or on to those who love exquisite books.
The quality of the photography reproductions is not to be topped. In addition each photograph is identified by location and date- which helps to see the transformation/changes that took place at Versailles over the years. The photographs are also not just the beautiful State Rooms of French Royalty; we are also taken on a journey through the back halls, staircases and other inaccessible places throughout the palace complex- an amazing journey.
A must have for readers interested in France, Versailles, history, decoration, arts, etc.
The actual photographs, which you can see in museums, galleries and auction houses, are even more impressive: http://www.yatzer.com/robert-polidori-versailles.
