In 1601, the rebuilding was again undertaken, which lasted until 1829. It is in a rather beautiful Gothic style, excepting the facade, a majestic piece of work, though mixed in style, erected under Louis XY and Louis XVI by Gabriel (in the int., some handsome stained-glass windows representing the Life of Joan of Arc Tomb of Mqr.

But a more pleasant way to get there is to hire a boat by the side of the bridge, 1. bank (1 fr. '50 per hour "2 hours suffice for the journey there, visit to the source, and the return journey) and to go up the river about 2 k. 250 (delightful trip) as far as the Lorette bridfje, where it is necessary to leave the boat. Thence climb, to the r., the slopes on the 1. bank to get to the road wiiich runs along the plateau. Following this road to'tlie 1. for some 15 min. (1,200 m.) the gate of the Chateau de la Source is reached (for admission, apply to the guardian; gratuity expected). The Chateau, a vast edifice, was rebuilt in 1632. It belonged in the xvi c. to Cardinal Brigonnet. Lord Bolingbroke lived here in retirement in 1720; and in 1722 Voltaire visited him at the Chateau and read to him the ffenriade. In 1815, tlie Prince of Eckmiihl settled at la Source after the battle of Waterloo, and signed the disbandment of his army, as decided upon at the council held at Angerville. The Loiret which is only some 12 k. long, takes its source in the park at the foot of the Chateau, from two different springs. The first forms a little circular basin called the Abimc or the Bouillon. A little further on the Loiret widens into a semi-circular basin hollowed out artificially and called le Miroir because it reflects the facade of the Chateau. Close to the outlet of the basin, right in the very bed of the river, the second spring, called the Grande Source, can be seen. On returning to Olivet (we do not reckon the 6 k. trip to La Source), follow to the AV. the high road along the plateau on the 1. bank of the Loiret. 122 k. Saint- Hilaire-Saint-Mesmin. 125 k.

On the upper table, supported by four columns, there has been reinstated the remarkable statue of the king kneeling, executed by ^Micliel ]5ourdin, in 16tJ2, and accompanied by four little angels, the whole being in white marble. M. I'abbe Saget, rector of Clery, the restorer of the tomb, discovered and unearthed, in 1889, the roijal vault situated beneath, and still containing, in a sepulchral trougli made in one piece, the remains of king and of his wife, Charlotte de JSavoie, wliicli it was believed to have" been desecrated and cast to the winds by tiie Huguenots at the end of the xvi c.

THE CHATEAUX nF

T[IE I.oIRE.

The Loire Bridge (11 arches) was constructed I'rom 1717 to 17-21 hy Gabriel and Pitrou. It is ocjival in form. Over the key-stone of thV central arch stands a Pyramid some 60 ft. high, at the base of which, facing the river, can be" seen the arms of France supported by two tritons, the work of Nicolas Coustou. Beyond the Ijridge. in the faubourg de Vienno. on tlie 1. bank of tlio Loire, a visit should be made (along the quay, to tiie r. to the Hospital and to the Saint-Sarurnin church. The Saint-Saturnin church dates from the xv and xvi c. The centre steeple is well worthy of attention. A tower flanks the facade. On tlio S. side, overlooking the" place, is a pretty bell turret of the xv c. On the r. of the choir, is a picture by Omer Charlet [Marlyrdoia of At the top of the 1. aisle, Chaprlle dc Notre-Dame ilcs St Andre). Aides, the shrine of a pilgrimage to which Anne of Brittany was much devoted; numerous votive otierings; a curious picture Hy the Blois painter, Jean Mosnier (1633), representing a prayer oflfered up by the aldermen to deliver the town from pestilence at the time of the 'great epidemic of 1631 in the background the town of Blois is depicted. Facing Saint-Saturnin. is a building of the xv c, forming part of the Hopital gt'.ndmlo? the xvii c. enlarged in the xix c;.. and the old Cemetery of Vieiuie (Very curious.

Higher up is a cross-road (on the r. rue du Puits-Chdtel at No. 7, Hotel Sardini. of the time of Louis XII, with an oratory containing some remarkable frescoes; close by. No. '>, a house of the time of Louis Xn restoreil). whence an ascent to the Saint-Louis Cathedral can he made, either bv the steps of the Grcuids-Dcgres-Saint-Louis. or by the rue des /'aiiet/itulls {at No. 10, hotel Helot, ot the xvi c), or better still hy the rue Picrre-de-Blnis (old houses), a steep acclivity and paved with bricks which passes, at its upper part, under a dwelling of the xv c. forming a bridge. The Saint-Louis Cathedral, of the xvi c. was partly re-constructed from 1678 after a landslip. It atfords a curious specimen of a churcii repaired under Louis XIV in Flamboyant Ootiiic style. The porch is Renaissance. The tower, placed to thel. of the facade, dates back to the XII c. in its lower parts; the upper portion dates from 1541 to 1609. At the foot of the tower, facing the place Saint-Louis, is a carved inscription by which Thibault, called the Good, comte de Blois, granted the remission of certain onerous taxes upon the inhabitants and supIn the int.. arc modern stainedpressed the misdeeds of delinquents. glass windows in the chapelle de la Vierge and large glass-windows in the apse illustrative of the Life of St Louis.

Of particular interest are a gallery in the courtyard, decorated with medallions of the Cnesars in terra-cotta the stair tower, and in a room restored by Duban, a splendid chimmey-piece with the arms of France. Continuing along the rue Saint-Honore, we arrive at No. 1, at the old hulel Penis-Duponi o( the xvi c, built for the celebrated lawyer of that name, the exterior of which has been completely disfigured (round tlie courtyard, which should be entered, are interesting carvings, medallions and a curious staircase tower).

It is proposed to establish a Museum of Fine Arts there), of which certain portions date back to tlie xiv c, was rebuilt the xvii and xvui c, and rests upon the ancient Gallic-Roman wall, remains of wliich can still be seen, notably a corner tower which was used as a Treasury in the xii c. Tiie grand'porch, with columns of Ionic Order, is adorned' with two ataiacs (/ieligion, Moses}. The chapel dates from the xii and xvi c.^. "Worthy of note, at the exterior M:)ehind tlie Cathedral, is an elet.'ant })ulpit or tribune of the xvi c. wliich was used for the reading of tlie decisions of the Ecclesiastical Triljunal. On the r. of the old Archbishop's Palace, at the corner of the rue des Ursiilines and of the rue Juh^s-Siion. note the charming modern rnan.von l)uilt in Henri II style, by Mme. la Vicomtesse du Cliatel. The Saint-Gatien Cathedral, dedicated to the tirst Bishop of tlie Turones (aliout -2^0). formerly at St Maurice, was a prey to a tire aused, in 1160, through a quarrel between Louis VII. King of France, and Henry II of England. Of the destroyed church, all that remains are the newels of the two towers up to about half their height. The present edifice is almost entirely the outcome of a complete reconstruction undertaken about Iv?i5 and" continued up to 1517. Tiic original plans were sliglitly reduced in the xiv c. during the construction of the transept, the nave and its aisles being erected on a narrower base, so Ihatthe four pillars of the crossbars form between them, a trapezium tlie smallest side of which is turned towards the porch. The west front, built from 14-2G to loi?, pierced with three lofty Flamboyant portals, surmounted hy a larg-e central window with rose window above, is flanked l)y two slightly dissimilar towers, of 60 and 70 m. Jiigli, each completed by an octagonal story with a double dome in Renaissance style. The ciioir, completed in 1267. is the most ancient portion of the building. In the int.. the eye is at once altracted by one of the most Iieautiful collections of stained-glass windows in existence. Fifteen of the principal ones date back to the xiii c. and depict historical or legendary episodes. In a chapel of the r. transept, can be seen the remains of "a tomb of the same period, and the mausoleum, in white marble, of the children of Charles VIII, constructed in 1506, in Renaissance style, under tlio direction of Michel Colomb. The N. tower encloses what is called the Royal Staircase built on ribs forming a kind of open-worked vaulting (from the top of this tower, a very extensive panoramii- view is obtained). To the 1. of the Cathedral, is "the charming Cloister de la Psaletteof the xv c. in Gothic style, with an elegant Renaissance staircase.

In the courtyard will be noticed two graceful arcades, an old well with knotted rope (cordeliore) carved in the stone, elegant windows surmounted with the devices Prie Diev Ptr and Assez au ronset peu vivrons; and a brick stair-turret 24 m. high. The very picturesque and expansive viewobtained from the summit, well repays the ascent. In the same street (No. 31), at the corner of the rue da' Poirier, there still stands an old Jiomanesque house. The rue Briconnet ends at the rue des Tanneurs. wliich to the r., leads into the rue Litlre {Xational .School of Music house of the xv c), near the Saint-Saturnia church (xv c). Turning leftwards, the rue Littre leads to the quai de la Poissonnerie, which follow along to the 1. as far as the Saint-Cijr Suspension Bridge, supported mid-way by the He Simon. 2 k. higher up, can be seen the fine railway bridge, pont de la Motte, over which runs the line to A'endome and Le Mans. By following the 1. bank of the Loire, and passing by the Cluimp de Mars and the Quartier Lassalle (Cavalry Barracks) "a visit can easily be made, near the bridge, to the Priory of Saint-Come (church of the xiii and XV c. refectory of the xii c), where the arch-heretic, Bdrenger died (1088). Five centuries later (1585) the poet Ronsard, wlio was commendatory prior, expired liere also. In a direct line with the Saint-Cyr liridge is the rue de la Republique, in the middle of whicii stands the place de la lii'publique, whence to the r., runs the ?-!<e de la

The Notre-Dame la Riche church, rebuilt in the xv c. but to a great extent destroyed by tlie protestants in 1562, was restored and embellished in recent times (the choir contains some old painted glass). On the 1. side of the place de la Republique, the rue du Grand Marche leads back to the centre of the old quarter, the place du Grand Marche. in which stands the beautiful Fontaine de Beaune constructed in 1510 from the designs of tlie celebrated Michel Colomb, by his nephew, Bastion Francois. The place du Grand March6 communicates on the S. side with the places des Halles and Gaston-Pailhou (a vast covered market, ancient houses, etc.). Starting from the E. side of the place du Grand Marche is the rue de Chdteauneuf. in whicli is situated the house of Briconnet (lirst Mayor of Tours in 1462) beside which tlie grocer's (epicerie Mirault) is established in another handsome and ancient mansion. The rue de Chatcauneuf runs into the place Chdteauneuf where the picturesque hostellerie de la CroixBlanche occupies the old hotel de ville de Chdteauneuf {\r c).

stable, according to tradition, it was in one of the rooms of this building that Joan of Arc took possession of her banner. The place Chateauneuf adjoins on the S. side the rue des Halles, which with the rue Nationale are the two most animated streets in the town.

having died at Candes al)out tiie year 397 or 400, members diocese carried his corpse to Tours, where a modest oratory in wood was at first erected over his tomb. St. Perpet, his third successor, erected, in 472, a basilica which, according to ,St. Gregoiro de Tours, was 160 feet long, 60 wide and 45 high under the vault. Clovis and his successors were profuse in conferring gifts and privileges to the monastery founded near the Basilica which became, from the VIII c. llic centre of an important town, quite distinct from the ancient city of Tours. Walls were built round it from 906 to 918, and, at first, it was called Martinopolis, then, after the xii c, Chateauneuf. St. Perpet's Basilica was burnt down in 997, and its successor was no lunger existing in the xii c. A third Basilica was commenced in 1175 and continued to the xiii c. It was 114 m. long., 69 m. wide at the tran sept, and '26 m. iiigii under the central arch. This admirable monument, desecrated by the Huguenots in 1562, shared, later, the fate of the famous Abbey of (Tuny; it was pulled down (180-2) to make way for a new street; only the two towers and the gallery of a small cloister being spared. In I860, researches were undertaken, in accordance with indications supplied by ancient plans, to discover the exact spot where St. Martin lav. Thc' attempt was successful. The tomb of this Performer of Miracles was worthily re-installed and the church re-built. The new Saint-Martin's Basilica is a remarkable construction of the Touraine architect Laloux. designed after the models of the primitive basilicas of the iv c. The nave, completed in 1902, is separated from the aisles by 14 magnificent monolithic cylindrical columns in polished granit from the Vosges district, and covered with rich and original woodwork relieved with gold. The choir, crowned wi+h a splendid dome surmounted by a colossal statue of the patron saint, is erected over a crypt containing the tomb of St. Martin and that of Cardinal Meignan with statue. In addition to the two towers of the ancient Basilica, there still remains a gallery of the Little Cloister {petit cloitre) (150S-1519) hidden in the courtyard of a convent (Apply at 3, rue Desof

From that time, the Chiiteau du Plessis, abandoned by Louis XFs successors, can only lay claim to two important events." The opening of the States-General which conferred on Louis XII the title of Pere du Peuple. was held here in the graude salle, on the I4th. of May. ir)06; and in 1589, Henri III and Henri lY held the famous interview which brought together under one flag, against the League, the Reformers and the Royalists. In 1773. Plessisles-Tours became a House of Correction (Prison). At the Revolution it was sold as national property. It now belongs to Dr. Kdmond Chaumier who has commenced its restoration, and lias established there a vaccination institution of some interest. At the bottom of the garden on the r. there still remains a dungeon in which can be seen a stone foundation supporting a staircase, and where, it is said, was placed the iron cage in which Cardinal La Balue was confined. On returning towards the Chateau, notice the ancient wall of the building, which connected the dungeon with all that remains of Louis XI's residence. In the interior of the Chateau, built in brick, the ground floor has been restored to its primitive condition. The Salic (les Gardes (modern chimney-piece in xv c. style) contains a valuable collection of prints and engravmgs relating to "Louis XI and his times, and a curious vaccination museum >>. Other rooms can also be visited (chimney-pieces of the period, remains of carvings, etc. on the 1st. lloor (the room in which Louis XI died), and on the 2nd. floor to whicli access is gained by a circular staircase whose axle rod spreads out at the top in rebated ril)S (beautiful view from the summit). The underground rooms looking out on to the moat (which has been restored) have been converted into stables. The magnificent park of Le Plessis was justly called in the xv c. the f/arden of^France, a title which geographers and travellers have since extented to the whole of the Touraine. In the hamlet of Le Plessis, there still exists the first dwelling place of St-FranQois de Paule whom Louis XI summoned to his presence (the ancient chapel, now converted into a coach-house, can be visited). On the bank of the Cher, there remains a well-preserved building which formed part of the old convent of St-Frangois at the end of the xv c. On the road from Tours to Le Plessis. by the side of the botanical garden, is the Rabatiere farm, a rather handsome building, constructed in the xv c, and supposed to have been the manor of tlie famous Olivier Le Daim, barber and minister of Louis XI.

The rue Saint-datien leads, a little further up, to a gate of the xvui c, one of the entrances to Marmoutier. At this entrance, application must be made to visit the caverns, from 2. to 5. p. m. (ring at the small door on the 1. of the portal). If, on the other hand, the tramway line is followed along the Loire embankment, a visit may be paid to the artistic cartheraware factory of Sainte-Radegonde, and 5" min. further on the ancient i)rincipal entrance to the abbey is reached (the dwelling is for sale since the expulsion of the Ladies "of the Sacre-Cceur who conducted a school there; there is no longer any admission by tiiis door, but by the one indicated above). The abbey of Marmoutier (Majus Monasterium). founded by St. Martin, was in the middle ages, one of the most powerful in France. In 1095. Pope Urbain II, preached, liere, the lirst crusade. From the xvii c. it was affiliated to the congregation of Saint-Maur. Its churcli. one of the finest monuments in Touraine. but now almost entirely destroyed, was built in the xiii c. by tlie architect Eiieiuie de Mortagne. whose tomb can be seen there. On the J^oire side, there still exists the portuil de la CVos.se, a charming specimen of xiii c. art (1220), near to wliich stand the buildings of the old school with its pretty chapel. The back of the dwelling is commanded by a steep hill, at the foot of wiiich stands a high tower which serves' both as steeple and keep, the only important remains of the ancient basilica (xm c.) with the r. arm of the transept. An elegant spiral staircase ascends to the curious Chapelle des Sept-Bormants (chapel of the Seven Sleepers), cut into the side of the hill in the shape of a cross and preceeded by tombs hollowed out of the rock. In this cavern are the graves of the Seven Sleepers, disciples of St Martin, who all died the same day, as he predicted to them, and whose bodies, left intact, performed "miracles. From this chapel, the Galerie des Solitaires leads to a monk's cell whence a stone staircase ascends to St-Leobard's Cell, likewise hollowed out of the rock (at the

Then visit a massive rock formerly enclosed in the transept of the basilica and in which is carved a primitive chapel called Jiepos de St. Martin. A damp cell underneath is the place where St. Brice. the successor of St. Martin to the see of Tours, atoned for his errors. The pavement and some of the bases of the pillars have recently been unearthed. In a cavern, a spring dug out by St. Martin is said to possess miraculous virtues. At the top of the hill, stands the Chateau de Bouijeniont, the former residence of the abbot. The encircling wall of the abbey still shows four cylindrical towers of the xiv c.

a famous intervien: here, on (he lie Saiiit-Tean. A chdleau already the hill at this period. Louis le Begue gave Amboise to the Conites d'Anjov, and Hugues, one of the best known of the counts, unitedChateau and the town) which had been formed itic two seigniories {the under his patronage, but which, hitherto, had remained distinct domains. The Comtes d'Anjou irere succeeded by the Comtes de Berri, In 1434, Charles VI f. by confiscation, added Amboise to the royal domains : and it ivas from this time that the Chateau really attained historical importance. Louis XI lived here, before shutting himself up in Le Plcssis-les-Tours. Charles VIII ivati born here 11470) and died, here {1498); he comtnenced its reconstruction on his return from Italy and brought from that country various designers of gardens and painte7's of note. Louis XII stayed for some time at Amboise, and Francois I spent here a portion of his youth with his mother, Louise de Savoie. In Hilii, on the v^eddnig-day of the due de Lorraine with Benee de Montpensier, he gave a proof of his courage by slaying irith one blow from his dagger, a furious wild-boar who had escaped from n courtyard where he had been confined, and had made his way into the royal apartments. In loSO, he received at the Chateau, a visit from the Emperor Charles-tjuint. In 1560. the protcslants, alarmed at the ascendency of the (raises over the young king. Francois II, conceived a plot to take the Guises priso7iers, to remove the king to Blois, and to hand over the governinent to the Bourbons ivho would convene the States-General. The moving spirit in this famous Conjuration was the Prince de Conde, but the ostensible leader was La Renaudic, a Perigordian nobleman. Warned in time, the Guises hastened to leave Blois and brought the young king to Amboise u:here any attempt by ;>icrprise was less to be feared. The conspit^alors, nevertheless, marched upon Amboise. The due de Guise, with a strong patrol attacked and beat them in detail. La Benaudie was killed by a shot
lifUl

e.risted on

near Chateaurenault. The Guises thought all danger passed and proclaimed a general amnesty, which, hnwever, iras almost immediately revoked, for on March 19, a final rally of the conjures attempted to seize the town. The fighting re-commenced, and Conde, who had gone over to the Court fiarty. either ivith a view of averting susp'cioti or of assistiiig the Huguenots, found himself obliged to steep his sword into the blood of his vanquished and di.'^armed accomplices. The Chateau d'.Xmboise then became the scene of a frightful massacre. Over I ,nOO soldiers were taken prisoners and hung, some from gibbets, others even from the balcony of the Chateau, which to this day is called the balcon dcs Conjures . Driven by the stench of so many dead bodies, the Court hurried away from the scene of these horrors, and the great historical a)tnals of Amboise were brought to a close with this blood-stained page. The kings never returned and the Chateau became a state prison and place of e.rile for higli personage- in disgrace. The following were detained here, fu cssively : ihe Cardinal de Bourbon, the Prince de Joinville, Cesar de Venddme, and Alexandre, both sons of Henri IV and GabrieHe d'Estrees, Fouquet and Lauzun. In 176:2, it was given to the due de f'hoiseul by Louis XV, then liought back, to he handed over to the due de Penthii;vi-e in exchange for his rights over the principality of Dombes. Louis XVI confirmed the elevation of Amboise into a duchy. Xapoleon gave the Chateau u/> to his old colleague at the consulat, Boger-Ducros, who, to avoid the expenses of thfi estadishment, puled down part of the building, and barbarously mutilated the remainde . At the Bestoration. it came into the pos.iession of the due d' Orleans, ivho was heir to the due de Penthievre. Louis-Phi>>

ITINERARY
the station, situated in a suburb, on tlic r. bank, foUnw tlic me de Poce, then the rue de Blois on the r. (small church, N.-D. du liout-des-Ponts. of the xv c; on the opposite side, in the Avail of a house situated on the r., before c-oming to the bridge, is a bas-relief in Renaissance style, representing the Charity of St. Martin Cross the two arms of the I^oire, divided by the He Saint-Jean, formerly called He <l'Or (on the 1., an old chapel of the xiii c. now used as a barn). It is from this spot that tlie most comprehensive view of the Chateau can be obtained. The terrace supported by a strongly-built wall immediately overlooks the houses on tlie quay. In the centre can be seen the principal facade of the King's apartments and to the 1., stands the great tour des Minimes. Having crossed the Loire, turn to the 1. ah ng the quay and, by the first turning on the 1., at the corner of the Hotel de Ville. a small square is reached whence an incline, to the 1., leads up to the entrance of the Chateau. After passing througli a first door, wliich the visitor himself can open, the entrance to a long and sloping vaulted corridor is reached, where the guardian will be found. This second incline leads to the terrace level, now converted into a public garden, whence a lovely view, on the r., can be seen over the Amasse valley, the town, the forest and the Chanteloup Pagoda (to the S. W.). The ChSteau d'Amboise is situated on a plateau making an angle to the N. W. over the Loire, to the S. \V. over the Amasse valley, and occupied, in succession, by Gallic, Roman and Feudal editices but upon which, at the present time, no building earlier than the xv c. can be seen. This plateau forms a high terrace supported by massive walls with a round tower at t!ie angle and two enormous towers, the tour des Minimes over the Loire and the tour Hurtault over the Amasse, both of which contain winding inclines of so great a width that horses and carriages can ascend to the summit. Of the Chateau proper, there remain but the superb King's Apartment, adjoining the tour des Minimes facing the Loire, a rectangular building of the time of Louis XII, and the Saint-Hubert ciiapel, now isolated but formerly coming between the buildings of Louis XI and tlie Queen's apartments both nf which have disappeared. A visit is first paid to the chapelle Saint-Hubert, a real gem of Gothic architecture, due to Charles VllI; the facade looks on to the garden, and the apse, supported by a strong counterfort, projects beyond the the lintel over the doorway, a triple ramparts. On the exterior, notice high-relief {the Vision of St. Hubert, the Legend of St. Christophe and St. A7it(>ine); above, in the tympanum, the Virgin between Charles VIII and Anne of Brittany, modern carvings the steeple with gilded staghorns arranged in the form of a crown. The inelegant coloured window panes were put in during the reign of Louis Philippe. The Chateau d'Amboise possessed formerly another chapel, much bigger, dedicated to St. Florentin. Leonardo da Vinci, whom Francois I

brought 10 Amboisc. was buried there in 151'J. Some bones and the fragments of a stone grave discovered liere several years since, were believed to have been the remains of the painter and his tomb. Tlic government at the time (1869) ereetcd on the spot a small monument (bust of Leonardo da Vinci). The discovered l)ones were enclosed, in 1874 in a leaden cashet and deposited under the flagstones of the SaintHubert chapel (1. side of transejjt). The Logis du Roi (King's Apartments) was commenced by Charles VIII a dainty open-work gallery immediately after his marriage in 1491 skirts the bottom ledge of the roof from which emerge four cliarmin^dormer-windows richly adorned with pinnacles. The salle dps Etais fState-roomi occupies the wiiole of the floor beneatii. This was partitioned off into a|)artments for Abd-el-Kader during his captivity, but has quite recently been restored to its former condition. It is divided four round into two naves the rools of which arc supi)orted by columns covered with ermines, fleurs-de-lys, and adorned with ornamented cajiitals. Tlie windows open on to the halcon des Conjuri's ((Jonspirators' balcony), the iron-work of which is a masterpiece of xv c.

rnderneath. tlie salle des (iardes (iuardroom,. occupied by agc<l l)eople (public not admitted) leads on to an oi)en galh'rv with arclies. called liie srt//e (/fs (iardes date which is enclosed by a |irelty balcony of oi)en stonework. The Tour des Minimes. adjoining tlie I^ogis du Uoi. was used as an approach to the Chateau, tlianks to an arch-covored slope, witli ]>ointedarciied windows, which winds round a central hollow newel (jiretty roof) and is graduated so sliglitly tliat horses and light vehicles can
i

ascend without difriculty. The tower is crowned by two parapets with battlements from which niagnilicent views of the Loire are obtainable. The Tour Hurtault or de Ci'snr situated near the ancient Lof/is dc la Reine Queens Apartments), facing the Amasse, iossess likewise a sloping spiral carriage-way the upper part of which is covered with wood, but below, the ancient pointed arches are again to be seen. On the door leading to the garden arc some pretty arabesques. Crossing to the N. the old royal garden, now arranged in quincunx form, a rather elegant door can'bc^ seen, surmounted by the porcupine of Louis Xll against which Charles Vlll is said to have struck his face and therciiy catised his death. This tradition. Iiowevcr, is incorrect. The door to wiiicli tiie historians ol the time refer was situated not at the N. K. end of tlie Chateau, but on tlie S side, at the entrance to the subterranean gallery leading from tlie nndergr'nind apartments of the Logis dc la Keine to tin- nmat dug out across the jilatcau to separate the Chateau iirojier from tiie old farmyard. It was in this moat that the

game of tennis was lirst played. On coming out of the Chateau,

a siiort walk should be made in an easterly direction, to visit, at the bottom of a courtyard belonging to a ynarcliand de via (wine-shop keeper) near the quai des Violettes. thi; subterranean caverns known as the Grcniers dc Ci'sar iCiesar's Granaries) although their construction cannot have been earlier than the XVI c.

erected in 1835 to Chapial. The Hotel de Ville. on the quay, was, originally, a private house built (loOO-loOo) by Pierre Morin, treasurer of France and mayor of Tours. Later on, the liouse was designated as the pa/ais ducal, as Choiseul made it a court for the administration of his seigniorial justice, a ])rison and the office of Accounts. It was skilfully restored in 1890. By applying to the concierge, one can visit, inside, some interesting rooms": tin; sallo des mariages (several i)ictures. line chimney piece with the

Guinot, statesman (v 189.'J). The Saint-I'hrentin church (1473-1481) was built by order ot Ijouis XI. Its Renaissance steeple is built in a slanting direction on llie facade side. The me Nationalc starts from the riglit-liand side of the small market-i)]ace at tlie foot of the ("bateau, and passing under an ancient doorway (xiv or xv c), leads to the suburb of Saint-DenisHors, whose church, line specimen of the Angevine style (xii c; ornamented ca[)itals of great interest), was re-modelled in the xv c. and restored in the xix c.

Over the 1. aisle is a line stained-glass window b'y Lobin; and over the -Jnd. aisle on tlie 1., a hne holi/sepulchrc of the XVI c. of which the slatues are mostly portraits of the family of la Bourdaisicre who had it erected.

Not far from Clos-Luce. at the foot of the hill on the r. bank of the Amasse, can be s.cen the pretty Chateau Gaillard, of the time of Charles VIII, restored by M. Fleurquin, its present owner. Louis XII gave this property to the clever Italian gardener. Pacello da Mercogliano it belonged afterwards to Rene de Savoie (his arms are carved out over an outer door) and to Cardinal Charles de Lorraine (15(36). Tlie attention of archeologists is directed to the numerous interesting remains of ancient monuments, among others the ancient courent des Cordeliers (Franciscan convent), at the end of the rue de Tours, of which the main building, the cloister and the chapel still exist almost intact (in a separate building, some curious paintings of the XV c); the supposed house of Joyeuse (in the street of the same name), a charming dwelling of the time of Charles VIII, carefully restored by its present proprietor, M.

HISTORY
Chateau d'Anf/ers stands on the site of the primiiive curial palace of the lioman times where the magistrates forming tfie curia of Juliomagus uaed to meet. It iras built by St. Louis at the time when the town still existed. In ii)8o, it iras taken by surprise. Henri III as soon as lie had regai)ied it, decreed its demolition fro)ii the porte Toussaini lo the port Ligny . With the exception of the X. tower whicli teas, no doubt, spared, on account of the windmill ichich stood on top, the whole icas almost entirely razed to the curtain [l.'tSO). Fortunately, the work of destruction was interrupted by events. The valiant captain Pierre de Donadieu, Sire of Puicharic, made use of the material derived from tlie demolition of the towers, to widen the platform and put the Chateau almost in the condition in which it is seen at the present day. The great bastion,
liowever. has been pulled down to make way for the present boulevard. It was at the Chateau d' Angers that Henri IV signed, on the April, l'>98, the agreement whicJi put an to t/ie League by uniting Cesar de Vend'ime, the natural son of the king and Gabrielle d'Estrees, with the daughter of th'! due de iMerciPur. In recent times, up to tSi>6. the Chateau served as a prison and house of detention. It is now used by the army (depot for arms for the reserves

The Chateau d'Angers is built in a schistous rock overlooking the 1. bank of the Maine, and its walls, made of the same sombre material, prolong the escarpment which serves as a course. Although the tojis of its towers have been removed, its bastions knocked down and its moat partly filled up, its appearance, especially on the river side, is formidable and imposing.

At the liase of the central tower which was added in 1540 (Renaissance), is an imposing row of eight armed warriors. The nave, 26 m. high is without aisles, and is formed, like the choir and the transept with vast sections of cross-vaultings, bulging out like cupolas and remarkable for their boldness and their curves. Two vast chapels have been added at the bottom of the nave. The one on the 1. (xv c.) contains a Crucifixion by David: the one on the r. dates partly from the xiii c. In the int.

lU'SCRIPTIOX
j

Tlic Chateau d*AzaY-Ie-Rideau, one of tlie purest creations of the early lienaissanre period is, as regard size, a comparatively simple and "modest ronstruction, but being built entirely at one time/it is one of the most graceful of buildings, completely harmonious in style. It is, moreover, charmingly situated. Its white architecture stands out in tlie midst of delightful "verdant country moistened by the cool waters of tiie Indre. Arriving at the Ciiateau iVom tlie direction of the town, we cross the bridge and enter tlie Court of Honour which is bounded on the opposite side by the main building with its beauijful Staircase Facade. On the r.. tiie court is bounded by a wing running at right angles TO the main buihling and ending with a big tower. Four smaller projecting turrets Hank the exterior corners of tiie Ciiateau. but it is impossible to walk round the exterior as the river skirts it on tliree
sides.

In the interior, wliich is in process of lieing restored to its primitive state, special attention should be directed to the Grand Siai>-case with straight and parallel flights under elegant rampant arches and panels tilled witli medallions. Four of tlic rooms liave already received
its

exhibits sent from tlie Louvre and Cluny museum, as well as various private gifts, to form the commencement of the Renaissance Museum.

OTHER SIGHTS
of Azay-le-Kideau, a building of the x:, xii and xv c., is partictilarly remarkable for its ornamental decoration and the detailed embellishmeuts of the facade (xi c). On the right, forming the cross-bar, is the seigniorial chapel (funereal inscrijjtions of tlie Biencourt family) of the XVI and xvit c, leading direct wiili tlie park of tiie Chateau, and which belongs likewise to tlie State.

The Chateau de Beauregard is most pleasantly situated in tlie middle of a beautiful park, at theS. end of the forest of Kussy and on the heights wiiich descend gradually on the S. towards the r. bank of the Beuvron. It owes its name ^Beauregard) to the charming view whicli it offers over the valley and the town of Cellettes. The Chateau consists of two ]jrojecting pavilions connected by a main building with an open arched gallery running along the ground floor. The Historical Portrait Gallery, on the 1st. floor, -.8 m. long and 7 m.
decorated with 363 portraits of historical celebrities, many of are not to be seen anyw here else. The subjects are all grouped in chronological order bv reigns, from Philippe Vt de Valois (13'2S-13oO) up to Louis XIII (1610-1643) when this gallery was painted. Running along beneath the ogee are some very curious allegorical paintings with devices and emblems referring to" the kings whose portraits are

Note the ceiling with its painted joists, and parpaved floor, in blue enamelled earthenware, depicting an army in order of battle at the time of Louis XIII. At the side, is a chamber with carved and gilded oak woodwork, and oak panels with the escutciieon of the Du Thiers in Ihe centre. In the chapel, is a fine primitive Flemish picture.

HISTORY
in Roman times, apparentlij owes origin to the Beltic word bloiz, ivolf. Blois became, under the feudal system, the centre of a powerful comte whose owners added to their domains the Dunois, Vendomois and Churtrain districts, and even at certain periods during the XJ and XII c, the Champagne country. The most famous of the first counts ivas Thibaut I, the Trickster (f 978). One of the Comte de Blots, Stephen, ascended the English throne in {tSo and reigned nin,eteen years. The family of the first counts became extinct in 1 34 1 and icas succeeded, by the family of Chdtillon which, in turn {I39t), was succeeded by Prince Louis, then due d' Orleans, and second son of Charles V. After the assassination of this prince, his disconsolate widoiv, Valentine de Milan, who had adopted the device Xothing more for me; for me, more is nothing , shut herself up in the Chateau de Blois, in a room draped with black, where she died on the 4'" of December 1408, relying for the protection of her family, less upon, her own son Charles than Upon an illegitimate son of her husband, the celebrated Dunois called le bdtard d' Orleans . It ivas, in fact, Dunois who held the Chateau during the final period of the Hundred Years War, whilst Charles d' Orleans, more a poet than a soldier, alloived himself to be taken at Agincourt and consoled himself in captivity, vjhich lasted till 1440, by composing pretty verses. It was under the government of Dunois, and in this very Chateau, that the Praguerie ivas organised in 1439. On his return from

there to the child udio was destined to become, from liHii Louis XII. of the Chateau de Blois in the XVI c. is to a great extent ihal of the whole of France. Louis XI f preferred residing hrre to Paris and signed at the Chateau aereral celebrated decrees and treaties, the inajorih/ of Iheni relating to the a/fairs of Ilalg. Anne of Britta)i!j died at (he (jhaleau in iiil-i. As long as Utieen Claude, daughter of Louis XII and wife of Francois / tired, the latter king decided to 7'emain at Blois. He receired. here, the Emperor Charles Quints but left the Chateau towards the end of his life for Chambord, Fontainebleau and Villers-Cotterets. Under Henri 111, Blois was again the scene of erentfnl episodes. It icas at lli.is Chateau that the king reunited the States-General of 1576 and 1588. With the tatter, the most tragic event inthe historij of Blois is connected. Henri III. afraid of the power and erer-growing ]>i)pularilg of the due lie Guise, had him assassi)i.ated almost under his rerij eijes {Dec. 23. 1588). At the sa)ne lime, he had his brother, the cardinal de Lorraine, thrown into a dunt/eon where lie was murdered the next day. Catherine de Medicis, who iras at that time verg seriousltj ill. died a few dags later. These two murders remain a mournful souvenir of the Chateau whicli the l,-inf/s of France henceforth abandoned. Louis XIII had his mother, Marie de Miidicis, shut tip here; but she succeeded in escaping after being in rapliritg for two years ij 01 7-1 CO j.Gastond' Orleans, brother of Louis XI II, who several times had been forced to leave the court, retired to Blois where he formed an entirely provincial kind of court for himself. He wished to gather round him the most brillianl talents, but only succeeded in securing writers and artists of very ordinary merit with the e.rceptio)i of Fraiieois Mansuri, who consented to take charge of the architerlural works. The death, of Gaston (161)0) interrupted these constructions. It was here, shortly afterwards, that Louis XIV, when passing through Blois, is said to hare seen Mile, de la Valliere for the first time. After Gaston d' Orleans, the Chateau of Blois was no longer used as a residence except bi/ (he (wo jirincesses : Marie Casimire. widow of King Sobieski of Poland, and the mother of King Stanislas, who died here /::':'. After them, the governors of Blois and the intendants of the in Orleanais would not condescend to reside at (he Chdteau, irhich was allowed to go to ruin and was even partly mutilated. Louis XVI converted it into barracks (17881 and the work of derasta(ion was onl'i stopped thanks to the designation of (he Chd(eau. in 1841. ((s an historical momiment to be kept in repair out of public funds. Then the complete restoration of the Chdteau commenced, under the direction of Duban. and was continued by M. de Baudot. The trial of seventtj-two prisoners, implicated in a conspiracy anil attempted outrage, was (he last imporlanl event which took place at (he Chateau of Blois.

DESCItlPTJOX
TIh) Chateau de Blois. situated to the A\'. oftlio town, on a prornonlorv I'onnod by the Junction of tiie valley ol' tlio Loire ami tlio ravine of the Arrou, is a quadrilateral, uncompieted on the S. side, surrounding a vast Court of Honour and ronsisting of four distinct parts. Tlie fddcst portion, containing the 8allo des Et.ats, dates from the xiii c. Tlie principal gate leads direct to the chapel and K. wing wliich were l)uilt bv Louis XII in late Gothic stvlc. The N. wing in which is dis-

played all the architectural luxury of the Renaissance, was built under Francois I., and tlie \V. wing, commenced by Gaston d'Orleans in 1635, had Francois Mansart as its architect. Completely restored since 1815 by Duban'and de Baudot, the Chateau is now almost in the same state that it was in the middle of the xvi c, except the buildinfi' of Gaston, which has replaced th(^ wing erected by Charles d"Orleans, lather of Louis XII. AVhcther wc arrive from tlio station Ity the avenue Victor-Hugo or from the centre of the town by the rues" Denis-Papin and Porte-Cot6, tl\c approach to the Chateau is made by the place Victor-Hugo, overlooking which, in all its majestic grandeur, is the exterior lacade of the imposing Francois I wing, built upon massive supporting walls. This facade should first be examined, with its two Italian loggias gracefully adorned by depressed arclies and surmounted by the beautiful attic balcony running benealii the roofing. Note also, on a level witli the balcony the picturesque row of gargoyles, and, lower down, the small projections whicli afford a pleasing break in the regularity of tiie eihsenihle. On the r. an ancient tower, tiie Tour du Jjoulin, has been likewise embellished with galleries of the xvi c, and in recent times, the roofing and bell tower iiave Ijeen restored. Further to titer., can Ijo seen the narrowest side of the buildings of Gaston d'Orleans. On the 1. is the building containing the Salle des Etats. An incline for vehicles at tiie foot of the Chateati and a staircase for pedestrians, to the 1.. lead from tiie places Victor-Hugo to th(> place du Chateau whicli extends to tlic E. of tlie Ciiateau. and which formed tlie ancient forecourt, ibrmerly fortified. Looking on to the place is tlie entrance to the Chateau tiirough the Louis XII AVing. Tlie exterior of the Aile Louis XII (Louis XII Wing) facing tlie place \ presents a charming kK^adc in sr.me and red and white lozenge-shaped bricks, completed in l')!):', and fianked on the r. liy the gable (modern) of the Salle des E^tats. The portal is surmounted by a Flamboyant niche with a background of blue dotted with fleurs de lis and containing a gilt stone equestrian statue of Louis XII. a modern piece of work by Seurre. Note also tiie open-work balcony, the beautiful dormer windows and the curious little fi(/nres carved as brackets at the angle of the windows. The porcupine, emblem of Louis XII, can be seen above the inain-door and above the charming little door immediately to the r. Tiie arched jiassage through the big doorway leads direct to the courtyard which, on entering, offers a fine prospect of the constructions of different periods surrounding it. The interior facade of the Louis XII AVing is supported by a long open gallery of which the three-centred arches are supported by alternating round and quadrangular columns covered witli ermine' and fleurs-de-lys or delicate arabesques (magnificent capitals). Under this gallery is tlie Salle des Gardes de Louis XII (fine chimneypiece rebuilt by Duban statues and pictures). In the adjacent rooms the Daniel Bupuis Museum ;open to the general public on Sundays, from 1 to I p. m. foreigners admitted every day), contains all the work of the famous engraver of medals of this name, born in Blois
' ' '

[1849-1899;.

The gallery leads by the r. and 1. to two pavilions containing the staircases crowned with remarkable vaultings. Tothe r. in the courtyard, a more simple f/allen/. running at right-angles to the Aile Louis XII, and called after Charles d'Orleans, is adorned with lapidary

THE CHATEAUX OF THE LOIRE.

among which can be noticed some relics of a magniwhite marble with the arms of Louis XII and Anne of Brittany, removed from the old gardens of the Chateau. The gallery adjoins'the chapelle de Saint-Calais (modern tiled paving with the arms of France and Brittany and a curious echo), from which Gaston removed three bays of the nave, and whicii has been restored and decorated by Duban. It likewise forms part of the buildings of Louis XII. On the opposite side of the courtyard, the Aile de Gaston d'Orleans, the work of Francois Mansart, the classic style of whicli contrasts strikingly witli the adjoining Renaissance buildings, is remarkable for its staircase frame (tlio srejis have never been made; the staircase is in wood) crowned, in the interior, by an imposing double-storied cupola. It contains on the 1st floor the Public Librarij (40,000 vols.) and the SuUe des Fetes of the town (-2 beautiful Gobelin tapestries designed by Lebrun). Gaston d'Orleans had undertaken to carry out the total reconstruction of the Chateau in tiie same style. Fortunately, he died before beingable to realise his schemes. Passing between the Chapelle Saint-Calais and the Aile de Gaston, we can proceed to the ierrasse du Foi.r, which dominates from a great height on the W. side, the old moat of the Chateau aud on the S. side, the lower town, the Saint-Nicolas quarter and the course of the Loire (very fine view). On this side, there still exists the big Tour du Foix, the remains of the ancient fortress, upon which tradition places the observatory of Catlierine de Medicis. The terrace, having recently been excavated, led to the discovery of the lower story of the Renaissance buildings destroyed and partly buried by Gaston d'Orleans. On the r. of the courtyard, "the Aile de Frangois I is an enlargement and a transformation of the old feudal castle, of which traces can still be seen. This transformation, evidently i-esumed at various periods, was ert'ected between 1515 to 1524. The Renaissance style is, here, to be seen
;

in all its brilliancy.

The visitor will have already inspected the exterior facade which looks on to the place Victor-Hugo. On the interior facade, he will notice the beautiful cornice by which it is crowned, surmounted by an elegant open balustrade with the initials of Frangois I and Claude de France, and the dormer windows decorated with cliarming statues of children. But that which, above all, compels admiration is the Grand Staircase, one of the finest Renaissance masterpieces, projecting beyond tlie facade in an open octagonal tower with large rampant bays, and marvellous sculptural decorations. The style of the cornices ol the Aile Francois I. has induced M. Leon'Palustre to believe, that the author of this masterpiece is probably the architect Viart, wlio, in 1515, had already constructed the greaterportions of the Hotels de Ville of Orleans and Beaugency. But the only names that are known with certainty, are those of Frangois de Pontbriant, Superintendent of works for the" Louis XII and Francois I Wings until 1619, and .Jacques Sordeau, Master ot Works of the latter Wing from 1515 to 1510. When transforming the exterior, Frangois I spared one of the towers of tiie old fortress, of which the cells are still used as prisons. He preserved, likewise, on the western side, the buildings dating prior to Louis XII, and lining the terrace called the Perche aux Bretons, pulled down later by Gaston dOrleans, and the grand hall of the xiii c. called the Salle des Etats. situated between the new Wing and the Louis XII Wing.

BLOIS.

Ascending the grand staircase of Franeois I (note the groined roof, the frieze-panels of the door, and the newel of the staircase) a visit is made on the 1st. floor, to the Appartements de la Reine celebrated by the sojourn there of Catherine de M6dicis. On the courtyard side are a first Salle des Gardes ('?). formerly divided into two. wliich accounts for there being two fireplaces and two stone doors admirably carved; a second Salle des (}ardes which has been painted in a dark and severe colour, with a very plain fireplace. From this room, through a charming doorway adorned with a salamander, we reacii by the exterior facade the Galerie d'honnour de la Heine, decorated like the rooms wliich follow, with enamelled tiled floor and paintings on canvas which cannot certainly be ranked among Dubans fjest work. Continuing by the same facade, are. successively a small chamber, called by the guardians the Cabinet de Toilette de Catherine de Mtklicis. and cut into the ancient tower of the castle (walls -i m. thick, where can be seen the old walled-in staircase of the fortress; the Bedroom of Catherine de Medicis, M'here she died on January 5. 1589; her Oratory with a pretty apsis projecting beyond the facade (modern stained-glass windows by Lavergne and a superb stone pendentive) her Cabinet de Travail (delightful carved woodwork in which can be counted no less than 237 differently ornamented panels which concealed secret cupboards a ceiling re-made by Duban. According to a false tradition, Marie de Medicis is said to have made her escape in 1619 by the window of this chamber). From Catherine de Medicis' cabinet de travail an exit is made to the exterior balcony winding round the Tour da Moulin, remnant of the original Chateau (xiii c.) and which ends to the \V., the Francois I Ming. The cell can be seen, still armed with a heavy iron door, where Cardinal de Guise was assassinated the day after the murder of his brother. On the ground floor of this tower is a "deep ditch in which according to legend, underground dungeons were said to

'ind. story by the staircase named after .the Quait is said, passed the assassins of the Due de (luise), Appartements de Henri III, we first see, looking on to the courtyard, the Salle du Conseil (-2 magnificent chimney pieces) where the Due de Guise attended a council to which Henri III summoned him. in order to have him assassinated; the Salle des Gardes (-2 very plain chimney pieces); thence pass along tlie exterior facade into thc'Gaterie d'Honneur or da Roi. formerly divided into 5 small rooms one of which was the oratory where Henri III placed two monks to pray during the assassination of the Due de Guise, and another room being the wardrolje chamber where the king had the corpse of the duke hidden. Continuing, a visit is made to the Cabinet neuf, where the king remained during the assassination of the duke; the kinffs Bed-room to which Guise, stabbed by the assassins in the room adjoining, returned and fell dead at the foot of tlie bed. It was then that Henri III, emerging from the cabinet neuf . pushed the corpse aside with his foot, saying He seems greater in death than in life . We pass through two other rooms, and emerge on to a charming gallery winding round the Tour du Moulin from which a most curious prospect of the Francois I Facade and its gargoyles is obtained. After retracing one"s steps, a visit is made, between the Francois I Wing and the Louis XI Wing, to the Salle des Etats, 30 m, long, 22 m. wide and 18 m. high. A row of seven fine columns of the xiii c, sur-

King Henri II continued his father's work n:ii/ioui. however, being able to bring il to a completion. After liini, the court dwelt at times at Chambord, but did not under lake any important works of construction Louis XIV held some brilliant fetes here, and had the apartments transformed in accordance with the taste of his time. He attended, here, the first performances of Moliere's Monsieur de Pourceaufrnac (1669) and Le Bourp:eois Gentilhommc (1610). King Stanislas of Poland who resided at tfie Chateau during eight years (1 ?:.''>1733), filled up the moats. Marshal de Sa.re, to whom it was presented in 1748, mut Haled it likewise. Napoleon after having formed, here, the tiith cohort of the legion of Honour, made a gift of the Chateau to the Prince de Wagram, whose widow, being unable to keep up the establishment, obtained permission to sell it, in iS'JI, after having cut down the timber. Chambord with the lohole of the commune was then purchased for the sum of i,:>4-2,000 francs [abotit 60.000), raised by means of a national subscription proposed by Count Adrien de Calonne, atul was presented to the due de Bordeaux who had just been born and who assumed, in consequence, the title of the Cornte lie Chambord. It is well known how vehemently Paul-Louis Courier objected to this project, and in iSS^, the Government of July endeavoured to sequester the property. But after a litigation of over i'O years' duration, the rights of the due de Bordeaux were finally and definitely recognised. The general restoration of the Chateau, rommenced by the Prince, is, since his death. (Aug. '24, IS83). being continued by bis successors, who devote about FiU.llOO francs ( 3,000) annually /o the work. The domain brings in about I3r,,000 francs per

The Chateau de Chambord considered as the Marvel of the Renaissance, stands in the middle of a vast wooded park of nearly 14,000 acres

<'nclosed by a wall of 35 k, (6 gates), the wall itself being constructed in the heart of the great forest of Boiilogne. The Chateau forms a square, 156 m. long by 117 ni., the corners of Avhich are flanked by four prodigious towers, 19 m. 51 cm. diameter. The buildings surround a second edihce which is also square and

flanked with towers similar in shape to the preceeding. but loftier. On the N. side, the facades of the two squares become merged into one, wliich is thus flanked by four towers. The buildings on the S. tront have only one story and were formerl}- covered with terraces, showing beneath the central apartments. In the xvii c. tlu'Se buildings were, uufortunatelj", covered with inappropriate roofing wliich the restoration, now being carried on. will ultimately suppress. The chief exterior characterestic of the Chateau de Chambord is the striking simplicity of the lower parts in comparison with the profusion of ornaments adorning tall chimneys. dormc;rs, spires, bell-turrets, the the upper portions sculpture of which recalls that of the Francois I Wing of the Chateau
:

de Blois. Chambor<l appears, therefore, in its entirety like a (Jothic <-hateau lj(>decked in Renaissance fashion >>. The rigid simplicity of the walls with barcdy the slightest of embellishments supporting tlieso elaborate roofings, has given rise to the picturesque simile of a breast plated horseman wearing the large feathered felt-hat of Francois I . The wonder of Chambord is its grand staircase, famous not only for the beauty of its architecture which is similar to that of the Frangois I wing at Blois, but also for the arrangement of its double spiral staircase so contrived that two parties may pass up and down res])ectively at the same time, without, meeting each other. It is situated in the very centre of tiio main Ijuilding at the junction of the four halls ( salles des gardes )>) which branch from it like the arms of a Greek cross. Recent resear<-hes prove that these halls were originally divided ofl" into three stories. Later on, the removal of the intervening ceilings gave them a very lofty appearance. The ceilings have now been reinstalled, except in one of the arms of the cross, to show the etfect of the arrangement. The to]) vaultings, with depressed arches, of these four halls, are decorated with lUU escutcheons of various designs prominent among which are the Salamander of Francis I, the letter F with crown, and the cordelier. Above the vaultings, where the double staircase ends, the lantern commences. It is 32 m. high and its etfect is most charming. It consists of eight arches accompanied by columns and pillars, of about 8 m. high, supporting another and loftier crowning decorated with a balustrade and comi)osed of eight counterforts each of which is adorned with the letter F and a gigantic Salamander. These flying-buttresses support the upper portion of the newel of the Grand Staircase. \Vithin this newel is a smaller and single si)iral staircase which leads to a belvedere surmounted by a bell-tower, both of extreme delicacy and with a profusion of detail. Crowning the whole, is a colossal fleur-de-lys in stone, at least 1 m. in height. In the corners, formed by the junction of the facade and the two side wings of the entrance court, are two fine open staircases (furnished with windows to secure their preservation). The Chateau contains in all, 13 large staircases and 365 rooms with fireplaces. The interior of the Chateau is entirely bare, with the exception of the apartments of Louis XIV. which were furnished and fitted up at the time of the Restoration for the Comte de Chambord. The furniture.

Following to tli(^ 1. tliis promenade, then crossing ol)liqii(>ly the place Saint-Andre, we reach tlie rue de Luynes, wliich descends 1j the Chateau in passing along to tiie I. tlie square Saint- Lubin. The Chateau de Chateaudun. built on ilie ridge of tiie plateau, and supi)orted by walls and counterforts descending perpendicularly to tlie level of the "river, overlooks the valley Ironi a great height. Still intact on its exterior, l)Ut unfortunately uninhabiled and much delapidated in the interior, this Chateau is composed of buildings of three diti'erent periods. The most ancient portion is the magnili(;ent and imposing keep (donjon', cylindrical in form, and Romanestpu^ in style, erected by Thibaui Ic Tri\-heur (956-1)78). according to an inscription placed over riic dour. Imt re-constructed c(>rtainly in the xii c. Its diameter is from 10 to 17 m., and its heigiit. including tli(> roof, is l!S m. The Chateau was supplied with water ity two wcdls. one of wliicii lias its mouth in a gallery on the first story "of the tower, and the ntiicr at I m. from its base. Adjoining the keep, is the Sainte-Chapelle. Hanked sideways Ijy a square tower, and built in 1104 in the styie of tlie latest ogival period by the celebrated Dunois. who was also responsible lor the contiguous wing. second wing at right-angles to the main building, on the r. hand side, was added at the commencement of the xvi c. by F'rangois TI of Orleans-Longueville who has displayed thereon all the elegance of the early days of the Renaissance. Note, particularly, the beautiful staircase pavilion. At the angle of the two wings another grand staircase, built by Dunois, belongs likewise to the Flamboyant (Jothic style. The Visit to the Chateau can be made in the following mann(>r commence by going on to the terrace whence the view below looking over the valley is verj- fine indeed. Passing, then, on the gound floor.

HISTORY
the Chateau of Chaumont belonged in the XV c. to the Amboise family. Pierre d" Amboise, having taken /lart in the League called le Rien public (the Public Weali. Louis XJ punished him by confiscating and pulling down Chaumont. Later on, hoirerer, he gave back the domain tu his old enemy and authorised him to reconslruel the Chdteau. Pierre d" Amboise died in I47;> without having been able to take advantage of the permission. It was his son Charles irho commenced the present inagnificient Chdteau in the transition style between the military architecture of the middle ages and the early Renaissance. Charles II of Amboise. who succeeded his father in }48l, received, at Chaumont. King Louis XII and his uncle, the celebrated Cardinal Georges d'Amljoise. In 1560. Catherine de Merlicis, purchased Chaumont but did not reside there. The Qnefn-Mother, all poicerful since the death of Henri II, forced her old rival Diane de Poitiers to give her Chenonceaux, which she had

coceted, and accept Cliaumont in exchange. Diane de Poitiers abandoned Chanmont herself for Anet. The Chateau then passed in turn to the families of Bouillon, Turenne, La March, Sardini, Roffignac, Saint-Aignan and Bochechouart. In 1730, it teas acquired by Nicolas Berlin de Vaugien, who pulled down the wing looking over the Loire
so as to obtain a clear view of the valleij. in 1758, a n^w propriet .r, Jacques Le Bay, set ujt a pottery manufacturg at Chaumont tinder the direction of the celebrated Italian Nini, who made those cliarniing medallions in terra cotta which have now become so rare and so much sought after. Franklin was received at Cliaumont, and his portrait executed by Nini. Later, the son Le Bay gave refuge there to Mme. de Stael who was pursued by the hatred of the Emperor. Towards 1833. the Chateau become the property of the Count of Aramov, who undertook the first serious restoration, and collected the greater port of the furniture and artistic objects which now embellish the histoyncal appartments. This furniture decoration, therefore, though not authentic, is very precious and in perfect taste. Prince Amedee de Broglie. v:ho bought Chaumont in {875, has had the restoration continued by the architect Sanson and the sculptor Margolin.

leads from the Onzain station to (1.500 m. S. or to the 1.) Chaumont, passes over a level crossing of the railway and lined with superb poplar trees, continues on to the village of Ecure where it crosses the river over a suspension bridge of six spans (on the r. is a stone to commemorate the flood of 1856 which swept away the village of Ecure). Having crossed the bridge (on the 1., are the remains of the ancient Saint-Martin's Prion/), turn to the r. to follow the long street of the village in which, on tlie 1., not far from the hotel, is the gate of the park (veliicles not admitted) whence a gentle sloping alley leads up to the Chateau. Further on in the village, is a pretty modern church of the XV c. The Chateau de Chaumont, in which are blended the later Gothic and early Renaissance styles, is admirably situated above the village on the wooded slope overlooking the 1. bank of the Loire and commanding a superb view of the course of the river. It consists of three irregular main buildings partly enclosing an interior court which opens on to a terrace on the Loire side, and has, on tlie exterior, four machicolateil towers, two of which flank tlie entrance gate. Over the battlements of tlie r. tower can still be seen some iigures that have been taken as cabalistic signs, and wliich are falsely attributed to Ruggieri. A drawbridge provides access to the gatewaybeiicath wliich is a i)iecc of old mosaic work representing a wildboar. From the drawbridge, can b"e seen in a stone medallion (recently restored) which decorates the gateway, the initials of Louis XII and Anne of Brittany. On the top of this medallion, some armorial bearings are incrusted over the towers guarding the gateway on the 1. those of Georges d'Amboise surmounted by tTie cardinals' hat on the r. those of Charfes d'Amboise who commenced the present Cliateau after 14"3. A frieze winding round the two towers and running along the wall bears, likewise, letters C elegantly entwined (the initials of Charles d'Amboise and his wife Catherine de Cliauvigny), and some volcanoes, an allusion to the name of Chaumont (Chaud-mont= Warm-hill).

The Great Gallery, built by Philibert Delorme, adjoins tlio S. facade of Bohier's Chateau with which it forms a striking contrast by the sobriety of its classical style. 60 m. liigh and two stories high, it stands on live arches separated by abutments on each of which is a semi-circular turret rising up to the level of the first story. It was intended to terminate the (Tallery on the r. bank of tlie Cher, by a big pavilion similar to Bohier's Chateau at the other extremity, but the deatii of Catherine put an end to this project. A visit to the interior of the Chateau can be made as follows At the entrance (pretty carved panels on the xvi c. door) vestibule roofed with prismatic ribs, passing through the middle of the Chateau on the 1. a pretty door (St. Tliomas and Ste. Catherine, de Bohier; patron saints of Bohier and his wife) gives access to the dining-room, formerly the Salle des Gardes (ceiling with painted joists shewing the initial letter of Catherine de Medicis; chimney-piece with the arms of the Brigonnet family, Flemish tapestries representing the Rape of Helen); a. door in carved wood (xvi c. St. Hubert) connects the diningroom with the Chapel (painted windows of 15-21). Further along the vestibule to the 1. is the Chamber of Diane de Poitiers (fine carved chimney-piece; Flemish tapestries of the xv c. Italian library; Education of Love by Correggio following on, the Cabinet Vert has retained its decoration of the time of Catherine de Medicis (Henri II furniture two studies of heads by P.

Rousseau, contains a collection of retrospective art and of local history. It was formed in 1906 by tlie Society des Aniis da Vieu.i'-Cliinon. The rue J.-J. Rousseau is continued past the Saint-Mexme church, an old Church-House whicli. since ITSy, was no longer used for worship. All that now remains of the building is the narthcx, its two towers and the central nave, now used as a school. The facade shows some curious remains of carvings and ornaments of the first half of the xi c. The 1. tower is Romanesque and has preserved some curious frescoes of the XI c. The r. tower, which is entirely of the xv c, contains interesting paintings of this period. In the central nave will be noticed the small stones used for the building and the windows joined together by a cordon of mouldings. In the rue J.-J. Rousseau and in those whicli branch lliercfrom are several ancient houses, some of which in stone, and skilfully restored, present many beautiful Renaissance details. At the back of the town some immense quarries, called Les Valains ('beautiful stalactites') can be visited. But ii is unwise to venture there unaccompanied by a guide.

It is composed of two wings forming an open angle on its interior side looking towards the hill of tlie donjon '. The exterior perforated by uncommon windows, crowned by machicoulis and a covered watch-balcony running round, of 135 m". in circumference, is flanked by three enoi>mous and magnificent towers Avith conical roofs.

f/rand staircase reconstructed, died here suddenly on the nth. Jan. i417 a letter which accorwhilst in the act of readiruj a letter from Louis ilinq to the chroniclers, is said to have concealed some subtle poison.

The same year, the Prince of Conti, lieutenant of Henri IV, forced the fortress to capitulate and had it dismantled.

A IioUonv and a diteh also separate the hill on the S., from the slopes o( Bellebat and Viynemont whieli are pierced in every direction by ancient quarries. Its outer wall is nearly -2 k. in eircumfereneo and takes the form of an elongated ellipse running from N. to S. In the interior, houses have been erected forming a quarter separated from the rest of the town. The entrance through the circular walls is Ijy a gateway in an irregular and massive construction flanked by two .\v c. towers. From there (ignore the numerous recommendations placed on the wall and which only tend to bewilder the tourist. Better to follow tlie itinerary given below) follow, straight on, the rue Foulques-Nerra, then to the r. the rue (he iJonjon. followed by a promena<le whicli bears tlic name of boulevard du Donjon. At the end of this promenade on tlie S. side of the (Micireling wall is the most remarkable part of the ("liateau, tlie part in MJiich is situated its most important defence worUs.

This front, built in the XIII c., and through which a door was made which opened on to the country, is flanked by three big towers called tours a bee, the shape of which instead of being round, forms a curvilinear angle.

The outside measurement of tlie larger rectangle is -25 m. 33 by 14 m. and 40 m. in heiglit. It is flanked by two counterforts in tlie form of half-columns. The smaller kee]), in the same style, has in length and breadtli half the dimensions of the larger building, but, formerly, it attained the same height. The keep was divided into four rooms on tiie top of each other, the floors and ceilings of which are demolislied. The sefon<i story of the small tower was used as a cliapel. TJie frescoes can still be seen in a niche wliicli sheltered the altar. The fine Romanesque keep became a state prison in which were confined, among others :.lean, due d'Alencon. who was guilty of inciting tlie Dauphin, son of Charles VII to revolt: Pierre de Breze and Pliilipjie tie Savoie. under Louis XL To keep under his liand tlie j)risoners wlio angered him most, Louis XI commen<"ed a second keep -alled the Tour Jionde or Tour Xi'ui'c, the entrance of which was by a se])arate corriilor. This big round tower, flanked witli annexes which gave it an irregular form, prot<'cted on the W. side, the second wall which, on this same side, is joined to tlio
first.

Visitors are admitted to the vast halls (fine <'Iiimney-piece) reserved for people of distinction, the prison, supposed to have been occu])ied by th(> due dWIencon, the Salle dcs Gardes and the Salle dc Question, in whicii can be seen various instruments of torture. In the basement, a round room, ventilated by inadequately small loop holes, contained the famous cages invented under Louis Xl" by Cardinal La 13alue who had
ni. C() wide and tlie height the first taste of them. These cages w(M"e of a man and a foot in addition afcording to Conimines, wlio was also confined in one under Charles VIII. witli (leoffroy de Pompadour. Grand Chaplain of France, and Ccorges dAniboise, "who was at tliat time Bishop of Montauban. From the top of the tower, whicli can be ascended, a beautiful view of LocJies, Beaulieu and tlie valley of the Indre can be enjoyed. The real cells ot" Loches occupy the under basement of a xv e. construction called the Martclel, the upper stories of whicli are destroyed. The cell of Ludovic Sforza, called tlie Moor, is shown, which he occui)ied for years and whi<-li he adorned witli paintings, a sun-dial and various in"scri|)tions. In several jdaccs his portrait will be n)tice(l. He died in l.'ilO from the (>rt"ects of joy at regaining his liberty after 10 years' captivity, in a top room of the tower. Beneath these cells run subterranean buildings still more gloomy, notably the /iistio/is' prison undi'r Francois I (chapel carved in the wall ent'ranc(> to the oubliettes) and the cell of the Comte de Sainl-Vallier, fatlK'r of Diane <le Poitiers. The inscriptions which can be read on the cells of the Round Tower, of the Marlelet and some otiier buildings are not the least curious features of Loches. In a corridor leading to the Round Tower this ironical invitation can be read Entkks, MKSsiEuns, CHEZ LK ROY NosTBE MESTHi; (Enter. Gentlemen, to the King, our master).

The nave, properly so-called, with two perfectly square compartments, is covered by two stone pyramids having eight sides (they were formerly conical in shape outside) which forms the e.vterior roofing. Tlie building of these pyramids was carried out or inspired by Thomas Pactius. prior of the 'Chapter (f 1168) who called them dubes [diibas). A steeple, surrounded by four bell-turrets, crown the central tower which is square in shape from top to bottom. Tlus two small aisles of the nave, added later, date from the xii and xv c. The c hoi)' stalls (xvi c.j and the tabernacle (xvii c.) are worthy of attention. In the 1. apsidiole is the chapel of N.-D. rle Beautertre with stained glass windows relating to this ancient pilgrimage. In the r. apsidiole is the chajiel of the Virgin with stained glass windows relating to the Sash of the Virf/in, a unique relic preserved in the Treasury for which the church was built. Apply to the sexton to visit the Treasury (It <-oiitains also a reliquary bust of St. Ours, etc.) and a small crypt with wall painting (St. Brice). From the 8t. Ours collegiale ", the rue Charles VII leads, on tlic r., to tin' door (ring and apply to tlie concierge on the 1.) of the Chateau Royal or Kin(fs Apartments built at the iN. jiointofthe enceinte overlooking tlie Indre, now used as a sub-prefecture. It was inhabited by the Kings of France Charles VII, Louis XI, Charles VIII and Louis XII. In its present state, the exterior, dates from the first and last of these monarchs. Outside, will be noticed a magnificient chestmut tree, planted, it is the Oratory of Anne of IJritsaid, by Francois I and in the interior <>(//; a curious bracket or capital with ornaments, near the lodge of the" concierge, and. in jjarticular, in the basement of tlie highest tower, the tomb of Agnes Sorel, surmounted by a statue of the xv c. Two angels are kneeling at the sides of the head of the deceased whose feet rest ui>on two lambs. Vast subterranean buildings, part of which are probably prior to the middle ages, run under the King's Apartments. Some of tliem communicate with the private enceinte called Pelit-Fort-Saint-Ours, which protected the royal dwelling on the town side. From the King's Apartments re-descend to the outer door of the walls by the rue Lansyer, where can be visited with interest, the Musee Lansyer, bequeathed by this painter to his town of adojition and containing the great(!r part of his work and studies. From the garden (2 small cannons given to the town by the due d'Epernon) of the museum building, ascend one of the towers of the Chateau gate (,very fine view of the town and the valley).

destiny. It was then that he turned his attention to transforming the old fortress of Le Lude into a pleasant county manor. Chamberlain of Louis XI, he died governor of Dauphine at Roussillon (here) in 1482. His son greatly activated the works of the Chateau. Le Lude was promoted successively, on behalf of the Daillon family, to a count's demesne in 1545, and then a duchy in i675. Henri de Daillon, first Duke of Le Lude, died, however, without issue in 1685' and the title lapsed with him. Since 1798, I^c Lude, has been the property of the Talhouet family ivho have restored U splendidly in recent times and who reside there eight months out of the year. The domain of Le Lude is noio one of the finest landed properties in France; it spreads over 12,000 acres, about half of which is covered vnth timber. The Marquis de Talhouet-Roy hunts in these woods.

DESCRIPTION
The Chdteau of Le Lude is built on the bank of the Loir, between the river and the town, whence entrance to the park is gained by a fine modern portal in Renaissance style (If closed, ring at the concierge's
lodge, on the
1.).

Built on the foundations of an ancient Feudal fortress, of which vast and curious subterranean apartments still exist, the Chateau is surrounded by deep ditches laid out as gardens, except on the Loir side, where it looks on to a terrace advancing in buttresses as far as the river. The building forms a quadrilateral, incomplete on the W. side and flanked at the corners by four enormous round towers with machicoulis. The three wings envelope a Court of Honour enclosed on tlie W. side by an arched portico preceded by a bridge over the ditch and which forms the principal entrance from "the town. The N. and oldest wing dates back to the and of the xv c. In the facade is a fine equestrian statue of Jehan de Daillon under a beautiful archway. The S. wing, which is the most remarkable, looks towards the park with a charming Frangois I facade decorated with medallions and delicate sculptures. Ldon Palustre considers it as one of the most beautiful specimens of French Renaissance and believes it to have been built between 15'20 and 1530. The E. facade, leading to the terrace by a wide flight of steps, dates from the time of Louis XVL It affords a powerful contrast with the two wings which it adjoins. It is crowned by a richly carved fronton

recently repaired bearing the Talhouet arms. In the interior, on the ground floor, can be visited 1. Francois I WING the vestibule (fine modern staircase. Renaissance style)', the dining room (tapestry work of the xvi c.) and the salon library (marble bust of cardinal de'la Tour d'Auvergne Gobelin tapestries) adorned with rich woodwork and monumental chimney-pieces; a charming little oratory decorated entirely with remarkable ivall paintings of the xvi c. (biblical subjects and liistory of Jehan de Daillon) due probably to Italian artists and restored in 1854; the small salon 2. Louis XVI wing (valuable salon furniture in finely worked Beauvais tapestry) the grand salon (furniture, pictures "and valuable artistic objects); the billiard room (family portraits) 3. xv c. wing a magnificent Galerie or Salle des FStes (fitted up and furnished in modern style) and the Ribliotheque (Library) de la Tour (beautiful Book of Time [Livre d'heures) manuscript on vellum of the xvi c. adorned with 49 miniatures). From the vestibule, situated at the end of the salle des Fetes, a staircase in carved stone with pendentives (at the bottom of the stairs, is a remark:

Permission is easily obtained. Note, close to the Chateau, the fine main building of la "R6gie. older than the Chateau, with octagonal turret to the N. gable, and fine ogival arched stables on the ground floor. The English garden is laid out on the grand terrace, lined witli an elegant stone balustrade adorned with a fine marble group of the xvi c. executed by an Italian {Hercules and Anthea). and large marble vases of tlie same period. The terrace overlooks the loweror Frencli garden, the river and immense meadows. Further on, the park forms a magnificent wood. The central avenue ends at tlie beautiful Porte des Tourelles. flanked l)y two round towers, re-constructed in the xvi c. style and which opens" on to the main road to Tours. Having reached 'the Tourelles, descend by an alley on the 1. to the Loir and return by the delightful road along the side of the river, shaded by big trees and afl"ording in front very picturesque views of the Chateau. At a junction of the roads, notice an old Cross in carved stone. On the opposite bank, the Malidor meadows (grazing ground, etc.) spread out like an immense green carpet, where can be seen the small Malidor manor of the time of Franf.'ois I, now a guard-house.

OTHER SIGHTS

In an adjacent street running down to the Loir bridge, can be seen an ancient gabb^ of tiie xv c. decorated with delicate carvings and a bust in a medallion which is sup])osed to have been the overseer's house.

HISTORY
a mound in the JX c. served, durini) the invasions, as a place of refuge, for the surrounding population. In 848, Nomenot^, King of Brittany, having burnt down the monastery of Saint-Florent le-Vieil, Charles the Bald gave the Villa Johannis, situated on the site of the present town, to the monks, as compensation. This demes)ie was pillaged by the yormans ; the ynonhs dispersed and carried away with tliem the relics of their patro)i saint to Tournus in Burgundy. These relics remained there ttntil they were brought back by the monk Absalon in 948. It was then that a new monastery was built and a city ivall : from which is derived, according to sotne authorities, the name of the town (Salvus Murus). From the Angevine princes and the Kings of England, the town in the XIII c. passed to the Ki)igs of France; its allegiance to them never wavered, the English never being able to secure the place, even in the Hundred Years' War. The Befornialion secured many proselytes to the new faith at Saumur, and, binder Henri IV, this town, governed by Duplessis-Moruay, the Pope of the Huguenots . became the metropolis of Protestantism. In l6'Jo, the fortifications of Saumur were dismantled, the Chtitcau alone being spared. During the Fronde, the toivn remained faithful to the King. Mazarin and the whole court stayed there in /65i, to operate against Angers ivhich had temporarily ri^iOi i)i revolt. Turcnne, abandoning the Fronde, rejoined the court party here. The revocation of the Edict of Xantes checked the prosperity of Saumur and caused it to lose a considerable portion of the population which had then exceeded X^5,000 inhabitants. The prosperity of the town did not revive until after the arrival of the Carabiniers de Monsieur HHo) for whom teas founded the Biding School from iciiich originated the present Cavalry School. In 1793, the Vendean army, commanded by MM. de Lescure and de la Rochejaquelein, captured Saumur and held it from the .'^"' to the ;?4"' of June. Under the Restoration, general Berton organised a conspiracy there, lohich only resulted in the death of the general and his principal

DESCRIPTION
situated alcove the town on the promontory connnanding the junction of the Loire and the Thouct, was. no doubt, founded by FouUiues Nerra, Comte d'Anjou (.x c.l. on the site of the Tour du Tronc.

the authors of the imperialist conspiracy of General Berton. During the reign of Louis-Philippe, the confiscated arms of the Vendean peasant were stored here so as to check effectually any attempt at a Chouan rising. Much delapidated by these various manipulations, and deserted, moreover, for some thirty years, the Chateau do Saumur offered no longer any features of interest save its fine exterior outline. The Ministry of War. who controlled the property, received a proposal from a would-be purcliaser who wished to pull it down: another scheme submitted was to establisli there a factory for the production of gameshot. Fortunately, on the initiative of D^ Peton. Mayor of Saumur. and after long negotiations, it has recently been acquired by the town who, with the help of the Administration des Beaux-Arts, have undersoldiers
its restoration, and propose to install there, a museum. The repairs, commenced in 1906 under the direction of the architects, Magne and Dussauge, have led to the interesting discovery of some antique sculpture and mosaic work. It is hoped to complete the restoration by about the end of 1908. At the present time, visitors can only inspect the exterior portions. A stone bridge, replacing the old draw-bridge, leads to the barracks Court the construction of which dates from Louis XIII. Formerly, in this enceinte, stood the Saint-Florent church of which nothing now .remains. An incline and archway, leading through a front building flanked by two turrets, leads to tlie main court of tlie Chateau which formed formerly a complete quadrilateral flanked at the corners by four towers, circular at the base and octagonal in the upper portion. At the present day, the >'. wing no longer exists. In front of the Chateau, on the Loire side, is a high terrace supported by massive walls. From this terrace and especially from the summit of the N. tower an admirable panorama is obtained over the valley of the Loire.

The' Court of Honour. opening, on the N. side to the terrace, is bounded on the r. and on the 1. by two bold groups of towers and pavilions, connected, at the end, l)y a main central building composed, on tlie ground floor, of a simple gallery. This building has preserved in the rear, over a narrow passage which separates it from the hill, its facade of the xv c, flanked at the corners by two circular towers of the same period. On the W. side, a less interesting building was added by Vauban to whom are, likewise,

The main road from Blois to Chateauroux running in a direct line through the forest of (Ratine, ends at the principal entrance to the Chateau to which it serves as an avenue. A gigantic gateway leads to a flower-bed surrounded by chestnut trees and called tlie Cour des Itonds (on the 1. the stables; on the r. tlic entertainment hall); then by a second gate, wo enter the Court called the Cours des Oranijeries (the Orangeries constructed by Talleyrand) finally a stone-bridge, passing over the moats laid out in gardens, wliich surround the Chateau, precede the vaulted passage running through tlie keep.

founded the powerful Abbaye de la Trinite there, the abbot of which, from i093 to H32, was the celebrated cardinal Geoff roy, one of the most eminent members of tlie XII c. clerny. llie Earldom belonged from 1314 to a branch of the Bourbon family, and was created a Ducky in i5f5 for Charles I of Bourbon-Vendome, paternal ancestor of Henri IV. During the religious war^s of the XVI c, the Protestants took possession of Vendome and committed every kind of excess there. The Leaguers entered there in their turn in I5S6. Henri IV had to take up arms to recover his heritage and, having captured the town by storm, had the governor Maille-Benehart hanged and the town dismantled. He gave
Vendome, at a later date, to his rightful son, Cisar de Vendome. In the year of the Republican Calendar, the Directoire appointed Venseat for the High Court, to try Habcpuf and his accomplices. In 1870, the Vendomois district was the site of numerous combats, and the town itself, attacked, in turn, by the rival French and German armies, was occupied for several yvonths by the Germans. A monument, erected on the plateau to the S. of the Chateau, commemorates the battles of which Vendome was the centre,

La Trinite, the finest church of Loir-et-Cher is a vast edifice, completely Gothic, built from the xii to the xv c. The facade is a magnificent specimen of the Flamboyant style. A little in front, to the r., standing by itself, is a magnificent feudal steeple of the middle of the xii c., a prototype of the Old Bell Tower of Chartres, and considered to be one of the finest masterpieces of the transition period (stone spire, 260 ft. high). In the int., the four first compartments of the nave are of the xv c, the three following, of the xiv and xv c, the last of the xiv c. The gallery of the triforium is remarkable for its height. The nave, accompained by aisles, has only two side chapels (to the 1.), one of which modern, in the (1515) possesses a fine baptismal font in white marble, best Renaissance taste (the pedestal, remarkable piece of carving of the commencement of the xvi c, was removed from the gardens of the Chateau de Blois), The second chapel dates from 1341. The transept, except a few remains of Romanesque pillars, belongs to the xiv c, as does, likewise, the greater portion of the choir, commenced about 1275. The two wings of the transept, lower than the rest of the church, are remarkable specimens of the Angevine style of the xiii c. In the 1. wing, a cul-de-lampe represents a lay architect leaning over his compass. The choir and its chapels have retained some fine fragments of stained glass windows many of which (in the small chapel on the r., and in the lower sections of the big windows) date back to the end of the xiii or commencement of the xiv c. Two altar screens in carved stone of the XVI c. adorn the smaller chapels of the apse. In the 2n(l. chapel to the r. of the choir, a curious picture (Life of Jesus Christ in 26 compartments) comes from Saint Wladimir of Sebastopol. The apse is surrounded by a stone enclosure in the most primitive Renaissance style. On one of the panels of this enclosure, are carved (on the 1. towards the choir aisle) some tears, a latin inscription and two lines of Greek verse referring to the ancient and celebrated pilgrimage to the relic of La Sainte Larme (The Holy Tear) which disappeared at the time of the RevoluThe carved choir-stalls of the xv or xvi c. are very handsome. tion.

HISTORY
This seigniory was originally called Coulombi6res or Colombiers. Philippe- Augnste and Richard Cceur-de-Lion signed a treaty there in iJS9. Coulombieres was created a marquisate in i6i9 in favour of Ralthazar Le Rreton, Seignior of Villandry, and received the latter name by letters patent in July 1639.

DESCRIPTION
The Chateau de Villandry was rebuilt about 1532 by Jean Le Breton, Secretary of State of Frangois L in the purest Renaissance style. The three facades which envelope the Court of Honour formed an architectural ensemble of the greatest variety. On the ground floor of the side facades, a gallery with admirable porches were to be seen. The principal facade showed three rows of square windows with muUions, and framed by pilasters and capitals of great delicacy. The Marquis de Castellane changed considerably the character of these three facades in the xviii c. He closed up the porched gallery, removed the mullions of the windows, suppressed the crowning of the dormer-windows, and. finally, painted on the wall panels, false windows between the real ones. The present owner, M. Carvallo, has been able to discover the ancient dispositions of the Chateau despite these xviii century alterations, and the edifice will shortly resume the characterestics it possessed

in the xvi c. The W. facade is also very interesting, although it has likewise undergone many alterations. It ends on .the S. side by a big square tower or keep of the xiv c, which is the only portion remaining of the anoient feudal castle. From the platform of this tower, a magnirtcent view can be obtained over the Cher and the Loire, and in the distance can be seen the Chateaux of Luynes, Cinq-Mars and Langeais. In the xviit c, the Marquis de Castellane embellished the park in various ways and created that delightful succession of terraces which connect :he left wing of the Chateau with the hill. Belonging to the Ch&.teau. are large gardens, a fine park and important servants quarters of the time of Louis XIV. M. Carvallo will form in the 1. wing of the Chateau, a Museum of Ancient and Modern Art, which will be open to visitors, with a benevolent object.

Par son independance, son dilettantisme, la iegerete d 'allures de ses articles e I'originaton libra qu'elle prend pour lit6 de ses dessins, par le juger hommes et choses, elle est ['expression elegante de I'esprit et du gout parisien le plus fin, dont elle a toujours su conserver la formule. Tous ceux qui se sont fait un nom dans la litterature ou au theatre ont debute ou coUabore a la Vie parisienne. Citons Meilhac, Halevy, Taine, Droz, marquis de Massa, About, Nisard, due de Morny, Frederic Masson, Abel HerPaul Bourget, Maurice man!, Gyp, Henri Lavedan, DoNNAY, Vanderem, Pierre Veber, Marni, Valdaone, Richard O'Monroy, Comte R. db Montesquiou, etc.
