Contemporary mottled calf (worn at the extremities). Provenance: From the Collection of Prince and Princess Henry De la Tour d'Auvergne Lauraguais, their sale, Sotheby's London, 3rd May, 2012, lot 481 These magnificent plates by Pierre Le Pautre and others, were published shortly after the death of Louis XIV, the Sun King, in 1715. France's longest reigning monarch (1643-1715), he established Versailles as the residence of the King of France from 1682. His architect Le Vau and his landscape architect Le Nôtre, his painter and decorator Le Brun, transformed the chateau and the park into the largest and most extravagant palace in Europe. Known, and self-styled, as the Sun-King, Louis XIV chose the sun for his emblem. "The sun was Apollo, god of Peace and the Arts; it was also the heavenly body giving life to all things, the embodiment of regularity, which rises and sets each day. Like the Sun God, Louis XIV, the warrior hero, brought peace to his people; he protected the arts and dispensed all the graces. Through the regularity of his work, his public levers and couchers (morning rising and evening retiring ceremonies), he insisted on the resemblance, carved in stone: the decor of Versailles was filled with the depictions and attributes of the god (laurels, lyre, tripod) on all the royal portraits and emblems" (Versailles online).
