The Sun King

Nancy Mitford

Harper and Row, New York, 1966. First Edition.

Some waviness to the dust jacket aside, shockingly pristine.


The Sun King is a house favorite here at Alarum. Telling the tale of Louis the XIV and the transformation of Versailles into a solar temple on earth, the Sun King is a lavishly illustrated, fascinating tale. The New York Review of Books reprinted this a few years back in a really piteous, ugly edition. This is Royalty as Solar Flare. Step to the real thing, it’s incredible.
