The furniture commissioned by the French royal family in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries is comprised of the finest examples in the world's greatest period of cabinetmaking. It also affords exceptional knowledge of the decorative arts of that epoch, not only because of the quality of surviving pieces, but also because of the abundant and precise documentary evidence. In this book, Pierre Verlet studies the evolution of the furniture during the 130 years covered by the Journal du Garde Meuble, the register of crown furniture which was instituted by Louis XIV and Colbert in 1663. 123 illustrations, 4 in full color.
