Get this from a library. Saint-Simon at Versailles. [Louis de Rouvroy Saint-Simon, duc de; Lucy Norton]. Saint Simon The apostle saint Simon has been sculpted later on in life with a balding head and a long beard. Dressed in a tunic and a cloak, he is looking at the book he is holding in his left hand while his right hand is resting on a woodcutter’s saw, which was the instrument of his martyrdom.

The Duc de Saint-Simon resided for many years at Versailles. He left an account of Life there. The Court. His natural talents were below mediocrity; but he had a mind capable of improvement, of receiving polish, of assimilating what was best in the minds of others without slavish imitation; and he profited greatly throughout his life from having associated with the ablest and wittiest.

Spawforth's Versailles is more a biography of court life than a biography of the palace itself. The chapters do more to illustrate what life was like at Versailles than to show a biography of the palace itself.
