About this Item

[12], 412 p. 25 cm. Occasional footnotes. Illustrations, Portraits, Genealogical tables. References. Select Bibliography. Index. First published in Frency by Librairie Artheme Fayard in 1965. Philippe Erlanger portrays Louis over the decades with a novelist's psychological insight. He shows the crucial effect of a childhood of neglect and humiliation, amid the horrors of civil war, on the formation of Louis' personality and his subsequent behaviour as king. The young man imbued with a fierce passion for life and love, the haughty autocrat who identified himself with the State, the creator of a spectacular style of leadership that became a tradition, the sovereign confronting death in the same inflexible manner in which he had confronted life-for more than half a century the solitary figure of Louis XIV dominated Europe. Good. No dust jacket. Cover has some wear and soiling. First U.S. Edition. Presumed first printing. Bookseller Inventory # 64275
